Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know when I need new windows?
There are some signs which are easy to spot when it comes to the need for a window replacement. If your windows are shaky or rattle with strong winds, it may mean that the frame no longer supports the panels and needs to be replaced all together. Difficulty in opening or closing can mean anything from deterioration to corrosion or rust. Cold draughts leaking in from around the sills or sash, signify that your window may be costing you in lost energy! Peeling away or chipping paint is not only aesthetically displeasing but can also facilitate mold and corrosion. Built up moisture, condensation and/or icing on the interior of a window pane, is usually a sign that the window is failing to ventilate or seal-out temperatures.

A one time investment in the right window will not only prevent the senseless loss of paid-for energy, it also gives your home its face, its features and characteristics – though appearances are not everything, they certainly contribute to the overall value of your home.
