When is it Time for New Windows?

If your windows are starting to show their age and you want to start thinking about replacing them, you might wonder, “When is it time for new windows?” Since you live in Dallas, TX, weather isn’t a huge concern. However, there are some times of the year that are better than others. And there are also some situations that warrant immediate replacement while others can wait. Here are some suggestions for you as you consider the process.

Your windows look decent, but a few of them have a crack in the glass.
When it is time for new windows?
Whenever you are comfortable with the process.
A few little cracks aren’t a dire situation, but they are showing you that your windows aren’t performing as they used to. Since the Dallas winters don’t usually get bitterly cold, you might want to move forward with the process sooner rather than later. The window companies aren’t as busy in the winter and you can get it over with and start saving money right away. But if you’d rather wait until spring, that will work as well.

Your windows look warped and there is some decay and maybe even some mold around them.
When is it time for new windows?
When your windows are so far gone that you can see their warped nature, their rotting, and their decay, you want them out of your house as soon as possible. They aren’t energy efficient and they are costing you a lot of money on your energy bills that you shouldn’t have to pay. They also could be causing water damage to the walls of your home or other areas, which is expensive to fix as well. Get them replaced ASAP, winter or not!

Your windows don’t open or close very well.
When it is time for new windows?
Now or later, as long as you are careful.
If your windows don’t function like they used to, there are probably other issues within them. If some of your windows are painted shut or you can’t get them to close once you have them open, they aren’t operating nicely. They probably aren’t as energy efficient as they used to be, either. For safety sake, and for your energy bills, it’s really best to get them replaced as soon as you can. However, if you want to wait until sprig or summer, keep the sticking windows closed and locked so they don’t slam shut on fingers and you can get by for a bit longer.
