How Often Do You Need to Replace Your Windows?
On average, vinyl windows last anywhere from 20 to 40 years, depending on the quality of the windows and installation. Well-maintained windows may last even longer, and homeowners may never have to replace them in the time they own their home if they constantly clean them and check to make sure they are performing well. Fiberglass windows last slightly longer than vinyl windows, and last between 30 to 50 years on average. Again, the lifespan of a fiberglass window also depends on window quality and the soundness of the installation.
Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Windows
No matter how old your windows are, there are symptoms that signal it may be time for replacement. You may want to consider replacement if:
- Your windows don’t open, close, and lock properly
- You feel drafty, outside air entering your home around the outside of the window
- You notice increased costs on energy bills
- Your windows are damaged or look outdated
Any of these signs may indicate that it’s time to replace your windows. If this is the case, you’ll want to make sure you turn to a professional, well-respected home improvement company. Proper installation is an important factor in the longevity of windows. So, picking a company that has a history of performing quality installations is equally important to the type of window you select.
