How Frequently Should My Residential Windows Be Replaced?

Living in a home with old windows is not the most optimal situation for a home owner. From the eye appeal to being energy efficient, getting new replacement windows can do wonders. But usually after how long, should you look into getting new windows? Do windows have a life expectancy?

If your current windows are over 15 years old, you should seriously consider replacing them. Obviously this number isn’t set in stone as some windows could wear and tear sooner and some may last longer. The quality of window and environment that you live in also will change how long your windows can last. While the number of years is important, it is just the first sign that you should look into other aspects of your windows.

Can you here noises from inside that you never could before? When you walk past your window do you ever feel a draft, even when the windows are shut? Is the appearance of your home brought down just from your windows? Read our blog about when you should replace your windows to learn more.
