Your windows do more than provide a gorgeous view of the outside world. Windows are also tasked with keeping the elements and noises out of your house while also keeping you safe. With so many roles, you need to make sure your windows are in good working order. If you have a problem with your windows, contact Wheeling Construction. Wheeling Construction can repair or replace your windows so they can get back to work.
Are you unsure if you need to repair or replace your windows? While some signs are obvious, others are more subtle. Let’s go over some of the main issues that homeowners face. If you notice any of these signs, it’s time to contact Wheeling Construction for a window repair or replacement.
Unfortunately, cracks and broken glass happen from time to time. The good news is you don’t have to replace the window if only the glass pane is damaged. Wheeling Construction can replace the cracked or broken pane so your window will function again. If you have double or triple pane windows, the team will only have to replace the broken pane. That lowers the cost of the repair.
Your windows should prevent the outside air from entering your home. Unfortunately, as your windows age, you might notice some drafts. Eventually, your windows can let so much air into your home that it’s hard to keep rooms at comfortable temperatures. Wheeling Construction needs to examine your windows to see if the problem can be fixed. If a repair isn’t possible, consider getting new windows.
Windows should open, close, and lock with ease. If you find yourself having to struggle every time you operate your windows, something is wrong with the mechanisms. A window repair and replacement expert from Wheeling Construction will examine the mechanisms to see if they can be repaired or if new windows are in order. Once the problem is addressed, you won’t have any problems operating your windows.
Your home should be your sanctuary. That means you want peace and quiet when you are inside. Hearing some noises, such as the sound of chirping birds, can be comforting. However, if your home is overrun by outdoor noises, your windows aren’t providing the proper insulation. This normally means it’s time to replace the windows.
Your window frames keep your windowpanes in place. If they are soft and decayed, the wood has rotten and needs to be replaced. Eventually, the frames will begin to sag, making the problem even worse. Contact Wheeling Construction so you can fix this problem before you have significant damage.
Have you noticed that your furniture is fading? That’s probably because your windows aren’t blocking the sunlight from entering your home, so it’s damaging your furniture. You can upgrade to windows that block UV rays. This home improvement will protect your furniture, so you won’t have to replace it as often.
When condensation builds up between your windowpanes, it’s hard to see outside. This is a sign that the window seal has failed, allowing moisture in. This can often be repaired, but depending on the extent of the damage, a replacement might be in order. Wheeling Construction can go over your options with you after inspecting the windows.
Have you noticed that the area around your windows is wet when it rains? This is another sign that the seal is broken. It might start with a few drops, but if you don’t address the problem, it can get bigger and bigger. Eventually, it can cause water damage. You can avoid costly home repairs by having your windows repaired or replaced at the first signs of a leak.
If your house is an older building, you might have single-pane windows. This is a sign that it’s time for an upgrade. Single-pane windows aren’t energy-efficient. They don’t do a good job of insulating your home, and they also do a poor job of keeping sounds out. Once you upgrade to double or triple pane windows, you’ll notice a difference immediately. You should also notice a difference in your energy bills since these windows are much more efficient.
From protecting your family from the elements to keeping everyone safe, your windows are a critical component of your home. They can only do their job if they are in good working order, so don’t delay if you need a window repair or replacement.
