If you own a home chances are, at some point during your ownership you’ll be faced with the decision to repair or replace.

Repairs range from something simple to so extensive and costly you have to sit down and evaluate which is the better option.

Your windows are no exception.

Depending on the state of your windows and age of your home, replacement might be the only route to take. If this sounds expensive, it’s not as bad as you think especially when you consider all of the benefits.

Today, we highlight the Top 5 Benefits To Replacing Your Windows

There are many reasons to replace your windows, and in some cases the cost savings pay for the windows themselves … 

  • New Windows Increase Your Home’s Value
    If your windows are older or if they weren’t installed correctly, they can go south quickly leading to condensation between the panes of glass which will result in window rot, mold, mildew and sagging issues. This becomes less than appealing to potential buyers when the time comes to sell. New windows present curb appeal both inside and out and with the cost savings on top it’s a worthwhile investment. New windows are considered a selling feature and you can often factor the cost of them into your asking price.
  • New Windows Provide Better Security and Safety
    The window industry has come a long way. Now more than ever, they provide safety to you and your family through several features like up to date locks, security sensors and easy operability. Noone wants to think about tragedy striking their home but should there ever be a fire, you need an easy way to get you and your family to safety. Older windows can jam and/or fail to open at all. This hazard shouldn’t be taken lightly.
  • New Windows Can Reduce Noise
    There’s nothing more annoying than being woken to or disrupted by the noise outside of your window. Improved sound protection commonly offered in today’s window technology means better sleep, improved work from home concentration and quality time with your family with the least amount of noise nuisance. There’s also a lot of supporting evidence that claims noise pollution can have a negative impact on your health. Considering all of the benefits to replacing your windows, the improved health aspect of it alone makes new windows an attractive option if you’re dealing with an older style that has thin panes of glass.
