1. Your Windows Are Difficult to Open and Close

If your windows have become increasingly difficult or impossible to open and close, it's a sign that they're in need of replacement. This is especially true if the issue is due to wear and tear on the window frame or hinges. Old windows can also be less energy efficient, which can lead to higher utility bills.

2. The Glass Is Chipped, Cracked, or Broken

If the glass on your windows is cracked, chipped, or broken, it's time for a replacement. Not only is this an aesthetic issue, but it can also be a security risk. Broken glass can easily be accessed by intruders.

3. The Paint on Your Windows Is Peeling or Flaking

Old paint can peel and chip over time, which makes it difficult to fully maintain the window. While painting around the window is a temporary fix, people often find it's best to just go ahead and get new windows that don't require constant maintenance

4. Your Window Sills Are Rotting

Similarly to old paint peeling off of wood, having rotted wood in your window frame causes problems beyond just an aesthetic issue because water damage can occur if left unaddressed for too long. After all, rotted wood opens up the door to bugs and pests entering your home as well as allowing moisture in through air leaks around the window. Replacement is a must if you have a rotting wood window sill.
