If your windows are draughty and inefficient, you may be wondering whether it’s time to replace them. Windows can last for decades, but they can deteriorate over time, so it’s important to know when they need replacing.
Know the signs of old windows
Windows show a number of signs when they need replacing:
- Feeling cold to the touch on the inside
- Having condensation build-up overnight
- Damp frames and walls
- They are no longer as good at soundproofing
- Your energy bills are getting higher
These can all be signs that your windows need repairing or could do with replacing. Most people notice one or more of these signs indicating that new windows may be a good idea.
