Typical aluminum, vinyl or wood-framed windows may only last you seven to 10 years if you're lucky. However, because there is no concrete timeline for when your current windows may fail, it is important to check them frequently.
If your windows are getting old, here are a few tips that will help you determine whether or not new windows are a necessity:
- Difficulty cleaning: Even if your windows are easily accessible from the exterior of your home, they will eventually become difficult to clean due to months and months of buildup from the natural elements. If this is the case, they will likely need to be replaced sooner rather than later.
- Fading furniture: New windows have the ability to protect the interior of your home from the harmful effects of the sun's UV rays. This is especially important in Florida, where the sun is strong. However, as windows age, they lose this function, which can result in fabrics in your living room or other spaces fading in the sun.
- Leaking windows: If water has started to find its way into your home, that can lead to a whole host of serious issues in the immediate future. Windows that leak even what seems to be a small amount of moisture can cause the surrounding floors and walls to rot, so the windows will need to be replaced quickly.
