When Is it Time for Window Glass Replacement?
While glass certainly has a long life and will stay beautiful for years, it doesn’t last forever. And in older homes and businesses, glass replacement is a necessity over time. Here are some signs that it may be time for window replacement/glass replacement in your South Cook County or Lake County home or business:
Your Energy Bills Have Increased
If the last couple of summers or winters you have noticed that it seems more expensive to heat or cool your home, it may be because your windows are not providing the proper amount of insulation that they should. In fact, lost energy is one of the surest signs that it is time to replace your windows; you may be able to save hundreds of dollars in heating and cooling costs by switching to newer, more energy efficient windows.
There Are Visible Cracks or Breaks
Any visible cracks or breaks in your windows should be an obvious sign that you need to take action. A crack or a break not only allows for air to enter – reducing energy efficiency – but may also be a safety hazard; cracked glass may act as an open invitation to a thief.
You Want to Improve Your Home’s Curb Appeal
If your home’s windows and glass feel outdated or shabby, it may be time to replace the glass just to improve your home’s curb appeal or get your home more aligned with your own personal style. This is especially true if you are thinking about selling your home – a more modern look may improve your home’s value.
