Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Home Windows

Jul 18, 2023

Your home is made up of numerous components that work together to keep it looking great and functioning efficiently. However, like all things, these components will eventually wear down and need to be replaced. One part of a home that commonly needs to be replaced is its windows. But of course, getting new replacement windows for your home is no small task or expense, so it’s understandable that many homeowners may want to put off this project for as long as possible. It’s a fine line to walk though. You don’t want to replace your windows too soon, but you also shouldn’t put off having them replaced when it’s needed.

This begs the question, how do you know when it’s time to replace your home windows? Thankfully there are a number of telltale signs that signal the need for a window replacement—it’s just a matter of being able to recognize them.

Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Home Windows

We’ve compiled a number of the most common signs that it’s time to replace your home windows to help homeowners make the judgment call on when to call in a professional to install replacement windows in their home. Here’s what to keep an eye out for:

  • Difficulty opening and closing – Are your windows hard to operate? Not only is this frustrating, but it’s also a sign you should have your windows replaced.
  • Uncomfortable drafts – Inefficient windows let hot or cold outdoor temperatures into your home, making it hard for your HVAC to keep your home at a comfortable temperature.
  • Visible damage – Any visible damage to your windows’ frames or glass is a good indication that you need new house windows.
  • Noise infiltration – If you’re noticing loud outdoor noises entering your home through your windows, you may want to consider undergoing a window replacement.
  • Outdated style – Windows that are outdated or simply no longer looking their best can diminish your home’s curb appeal, so they warrant replacing.
  • Age – Even if none of these other signs are present, if your windows are more than 20 years old, it’s time to have them replaced.

 Red Rock Windows provided the same exact windows of other companies, but for a lot less. As soon as the windows were in, delivery and installation were scheduled. We were impressed with the installation. If we ever have another window or door to be replaced, we will be using Red Rock! 
 About a year ago I had the windows on the west side of my home replaced. They were over 25 years old and I thought it was about time. The replacements looked great and really cooled the west facing rooms down. Last month I had Red Rock come out and quote on replacing the other 11 windows in my home. The pricing was fantastic and again the professionalism was incredible. The installer did a fantastic job, and was also very professional. If you need new windows or doors, these are the people to call. The whole team is fantastic! 
 The entire process with Red Rock Window & Door was top notch. He stuck to his estimate and got the door and frame installed in the time agreed. We originally wanted to replace the wood door with another wood door, but he explained why a composite door and frame would be a better choice because of the durability. The door and frame was installed and painted, and we couldn't be happier. Red Rock should be your first call for any window or door work! Logo
