The winter months can be long and daunting. There is a lot to think about in regards to your home surviving the winter properly. There is shoveling, Ice removal, plowing, roof shoveling and more. After you have made it through winter, it is a good idea to do a check around your home and look for any damage. A common place you may find you need repairs is with your windows. After harsh winds and freezing conditions, your windows may need a little TLC.
Here are a few things to check for to see if your windows may need replacing.
- Drafts: Finding drafts in your window is a sign that you may need to replace them. Drafts happen when air leaks into your home through gaps in your window. This can happen if they settle wrong after all of the freezing.
- Cracks: Finding any sort of crack in the glass means it is a good time to replace them. A crack in window glass can lead to the entire window shattering. This can be very dangerous and time consuming to fix.
- Water Damage: Finding water damage around your window is another sign that they may need to be replaced. If water is penetrating your windows, it can cause further structural damage to the window frame and even into your home’s structure.
