3 Signs Your Windows Need to be Replaced

Window repairs are often overlooked in the spring and summer months, but neglecting to repair or replace a faulty window could be costly this upcoming summer season. After all, with hot weather comes hotter temperatures that can lead to leaking windows and other problems. If you notice any signs of water damage or a faulty window, now is the time to act! Read on for three indications that could mean it’s time for new windows: 

1. Water Damage

If you notice any puddles on the floor near your window after it rains, there might be an issue with your window that is causing leaks. This is because there might be an issue with the window sealant, which needs to be replaced. This can lead to water damage and even mold build-up. Another reason for water to get into your home through your windows is if they have not been updated in a long time. 

After years of hot and cold weather, protecting you from rain and wind, as well as offering natural light, it makes sense that they can start to become weaker over time. Cracks and breaks are possible, along with issues with your screens. Water loves to get into spots that you sometimes might not even notice. 

2. Loose Seals

As stated before, many people are not aware that their window sealant may require replacement. If you notice any obvious spikes in your energy bills, it is possible that the bond on your windows is loose and needs to be replaced.

3. Drafts

Notice an obvious difference in temperature near certain windows throughout your home? Sometimes it’s not as easy to notice a loose seal in your windows, but homeowners will certainly be able to detect drafts. Besides a change in energy bills, you’ll also feel your cool air escaping during a warm day, no matter how high you put your AC, and vice versa for cold days and your heating.

Perfect Window Accents

Homeowners might not be leaving their windows open, but they are indeed going to leave the blinds up to let in some extra sun this season. And if you find yourself missing all the holiday decorations you had up back in December, now is your chance to invest in some beautiful winter window decor to spruce up your home’s look! There are many ways to brighten up these areas, even if the sun still sets reasonably early. Here are some of our favorites:

Candle Holders

This extra addition to your windows will help light up your house even after dark. You can find so many winter-themed ones online or in-store in all kinds of sizes and colors. Candles are often used more in the wintertime, bringing a sense of warmth for most homeowners. By adding these holders to your window, you’ll feel the full glow they have to offer both indoors and outdoors. 


When most people think of plants, they are reminded of spring or summer. However, potted plants can still thrive and look fantastic even during the colder months! Pick your favorite winter-themed pots and holders and fill the inside of your home with beautiful plants to add to each window. As a bonus, having many plants indoors helps create more fresh and clean air in your house. 

Non-Holiday Themed Decorations

Not everything needs to be centered around the winter holidays. Simple symbols that everyone associates with this season can also be the perfect accent for any window in your home. From acorns to snowflakes to seasonal fruit, you can get creative with what you choose. Let your imagination guide you! Your neighbors will look to you for inspiration for the rest of winter. 

While window accents are a good way to keep your home looking great during any season, we also highly recommend regular roof maintenance! Keep up your house’s curb appeal all year long with us.
