Signs That Mean You May Need To Replace Your Windows

Modern windows are built to last, but eventually, even the highest quality ones will show signs of wear and tear. While repairs are an option for some issues, there are clear indicators that it’s time for replacement windows. Here are some simple signs to look out for:

Signs to look out for in your home:

  1. Difficulty Opening or Closing: 

If your windows stick or jam, it’s a strong indication that replacement is necessary. This could be due to failing handles or swollen frames, especially common with timber windows exposed to water damage.

  1. Increased Condensation: 

While some condensation is normal, excessive moisture between panes suggests failing seals, necessitating window replacement.

  1. More Cold Drafts: 

As windows age, drafts may become more noticeable due to damaged frames or failed seals. Temporary fixes like silicone sealant won’t suffice in the long term; replacement windows ensure a proper fit and insulation.

  1. Higher Heating Bills: 

Inefficient windows can lead to heat loss, resulting in increased energy consumption and higher bills. If you find yourself adjusting the thermostat more frequently, it’s time to consider replacement.

  1. Reduced Soundproofing: 

Windows play a crucial role in soundproofing your home. If you’re hearing more noise from outside, it could be a sign of failing insulation or seals. 

  1. Single Glazing: 

Upgrading from single to double-glazed windows improves insulation and noise reduction, making it a worthwhile investment for energy efficiency and comfort.

  1. Change in Appearance: 

Cracked, faded, or soft frames detract from your home’s appearance and functionality. While minor issues may be fixable, significant damage warrants replacement.

If your windows exhibit any of these signs, it’s time for an upgrade. At Narborough Windows and Conservatories we offer a range of different styles and types of windows. For example UPVC, aluminium or timber alternatives.

Understanding WARMroof Technology

We understand the importance of thermal efficiency in your living space. That’s why our WARMroof System is designed to provide unparalleled comfort and energy efficiency throughout the year. Whether you’re replacing an existing conservatory roof, refurbishing your current conservatory, or embarking on a new extension project, our WARMroof technology ensures that your space remains warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

So, what sets our WARMroof System apart from traditional roofing solutions? Let’s delve into the benefits:

Reduced Heat Loss:

Unlike older cold roofs, our WARMRoof System is constructed from thick, solid insulation boards. These boards are fixed above the roof deck and covered with a moisture-resistant layer, preventing condensation and retaining heat more effectively. With all ventilation points sealed, our WARMroof System acts like double-glazing, keeping your living space warm and comfortable.

Savings on Bills:

With its high insulation qualities, our WARMroof System reduces heat loss through the roof, resulting in lower energy bills. By retaining heat more efficiently, you’ll find yourself reaching for the thermostat less often, potentially saving up to 20% on heating costs. Not only does this benefit your wallet, but it also reduces your carbon footprint by using less fossil fuel to heat your home.

Home Value:

Installing a WARMroof System can significantly increase the overall value of your property. With professional installation and quality workmanship, you’ll enjoy minimal maintenance requirements and long-term durability, further enhancing the appeal of your home.
