Many of us with windows 10 to 15 years old or older begin to ask that question. Here are a few tips on recognizing when it is time to seriously consider replacement windows.

1. If your home was built before 1978 and your windows are peeling paint a new paint job will be more expensive than probably what you anticipate because of the new EPA lead paint laws. You spend serious money on new paint and still have the same inefficient windows. In most case you would be better off putting the paint money towards new windows.

2. If you are feeling air flow through your windows on a windy or even still day then your windows are not sealing out the Restorations as they should. You can put up temporary barriers to try to keep the air out. In the end you are ready for new windows.

3. Windows are a large part in how a house looks from both the outside and the inside. If you feel your windows detract instead of add to your homes appeal then it is time to consider new windows. New windows can make a terrific change in how your home looks.

4. If your windows do not operate as they should, you cannot easily open and close them, maintenance has not helped then it may be time for replacement.

5. If you notice your utility bills are getting higher and higher and you know that your furnace is in good shape, your insulation in the ceiling is at least R-30, your doors are tight then it is time to consider new windows.
