3 Reasons to Replace Your Windows & Doors, Washburn, Wisconsin

Doors and windows can seem to last a lifetime, but in reality, they need to be replaced over time just like other parts of your home. If you need to swap out either your doors or windows, a general contractor can help to ensure you choose the right materials for the job. Here’s how to tell it’s time for a change.

Why You Should Replace Windows & Doors

1. Increased Energy Bills

If your doors and windows show signs of aging, you may notice your energy bills rising over time. The seals deteriorate over time and allow air to seep through, causing the HVAC system to work much harder than normal to compensate. This is especially true if you still have single-pane windows, which lack appropriate insulation.

Aging doors and windows can let outside air in your home as they begin to deteriorate. Walking past a leaky window may feel a degree or two different than the rest of the building. As air seeps in, the heater or air conditioner strains itself to keep your home at the set temperature. Sealing these drafts with weatherstripping can be a quick fix, but it is not a practical long-term solution. A general contractor can work with you to determine how to fix or replace your drafty access points.

3. Trouble Opening & Closing

Windows and doors should open effortlessly. If you find locking the back door or shutting your bedroom windows is nearly impossible, it may be time to replace them. A general contractor can ensure that you choose doors and windows that fit the space and operate with ease. Also, they can help you find the smartest option for your budget.
