  1. Homes tend to wear and tear over time, and windows are no exception. Here are a few signs that your windows need to be replaced.

    • Water damage around the frame – Damage to the frame is often difficult if not futile to fix and, in this scenario, should simply be replaced.
    • Frame coming apart – Generally, when a frame begins to fall apart, it is a good sign that no amount of fixing can last, and it would need a full replacement.
    • Over 20 years old – In old homes, windows that have lasted for between 20 and 25 years should be replaced, as their durability and integrity are likely depleted after so much time
    • Ice on window during winter – Humidity is the cause of ice on the windows, meaning that your heaters are working hard to heat up the room and its just not working because your windows aren’t holding in the heat.
