Meet Jane Evans

During college, I lived in a small, old house. My roommates and I loved it's cozy charm and, for the most part, didn't have any problems. However, one day, we noticed that the carpet in one of the bedrooms was wet--and it couldn't be dried. When we called our landlady and the repairman, they discovered that the shower not only needed to be re-caulked, but there was mold everywhere under the carpet. We had to move out for two weeks while they fixed the problem. Soon, thanks to the contractor (the likes of whom you can read about), we were back at home.

Is It Time for Replacement Windows?

As a homeowner, you might be on the lookout for replacement windows. Once your windows start to go bad, it is downhill from there. Instead of waiting for the windows to get worse, you will want to have them replaced with new windows as soon as you can. To help you spot the need for new residential replacement windows, you will want to continue reading. Here are some signs that it's time to get new replacement windows.

1. The Windows Won't Stay Open

Propping the window open with a board or an old book does not count as the window staying open. For safety purposes, and oftentimes for inspection purposes, all of the windows in your home must be able to open and stay open without the risk of the window crashing down on someone's hands. Even if your windows are just starting to show some weakness because they move down a little, you should go ahead and look into getting replacements.

2. The Frame Is Rotting Away

When you see some of the frame starting to rot away, you will need to schedule an installation appointment. Once the frame begins to rot away, it is only a matter of time before the situation gets a lot worse and this can cause the glass pane to fall out. The falling and shattering of the glass will not only create a mess, but it could cause injury to anyone that accidentally steps on the glass.

3. The Glass Gets Wet on the Inside

You should not have any moisture on the inside of the window. If your windows display condensation buildup, you have an issue with the window. If this problem persists for too long, you could end up with mold growing on the window or the wall around it.

Once you have determined that you do indeed have the need for replacement windows in your home, you will want to call a contractor that will be able to do the installation for you. Unless you have a lot of experience with removing and installing windows, this is not something you want to try to do on your own as a weekend project. You could risk breaking a few windows or potentially injuring yourself. Instead, look online for reviews for a reputable window installation company in your area and schedule an appointment for a free consultation and price quote as soon as possible.
