Is it time to replace your windows? Even the best windows won’t last forever and may need replacing. Would you like better ventilation, safer locks and more efficient, money-saving new windows in your home? If you think it is time to replace your windows, with Prenton Glass you will receive expert guidance and advice along with first-class workmanship and fitting. The team at Prenton Glass give some reasons you may want to replace your windows:
Old, inefficient windows – on average, uPVC windows will last 15-20 years, usually covered by a manufacturers warranty. Wooden frames often last less time. Older windows may start rotting, become discoloured, warp and start letting in water. Condensation, cracks, chips, scratches and holes can all lead to water seeping through and making the window less thermally efficient – your heating costs may increase over time.
Energy Bills are higher than they should be – The more heat that can escape your home will lead to higher energy bills. Older, less-efficient windows allow more heat to pass through and an increase in condensation can lead to damp problems. Ill-fitting frames and windows will also allow heat to escape and water to make its way into your home.
Hard to open and shut – Older windows can be harder to open and shut. Wooden frames may warp and expand due to moisture in the wood. uPVC frames can warp over time due to fluctuating temperature and in extreme cases, your building may settle of shift, preventing your windows from opening and shutting freely.
Have you got double glazing – Many houses and buildings have never had double glazing installed. Older properties may have single-glazing, often with owners thinking they cannot have modern, efficient windows fitted – there are many different styles of modern uPVC windows that may be suitable for these older, bespoke properties.
Drafty windows – in some cases, it can cost 25% more to heat a house with inefficient windows. Not replacing these windows can be a false economy and the cost can be regained by reduced energy bills over a shorter time than many people think. Drafty windows are often due to old, warped and ill-fitting windows and frames, which could be a security issue as well.
Prenton Glass, a Wirral based Trusted Trader, can advise you on replacement windows and an initial discussion on the options available to you.
