Signs That You May Need Professional Window Repairs

Monday, January 24th, 2022

One of our specialties is window and door services. Homeowners often don’t realize how much their windows and doors contribute to their home’s overall comfort and efficiency. The truth is though, they provide the insulation needed to keep heat inside during the winter when you’re using your furnace or another heating system, and they keep the heat out in the summer when you’re trying to stay cool.

That is, if they’re in good shape!

When you think of “window damage” you might think of a baseball-sized hole in the glass. This isn’t quite what we’re talking about, though. We’re talking about something much more subtle, like a door or window that has settled lopsided in its frame and is letting drafts in or out, therefore not letting your home comfort systems work as efficiently as they otherwise could.

Do you ever give much thought to what state your windows are in? Unless you have obvious damage to them, chances are that no, you don’t think about them too much.
