uPVC windows have been, and continue to be, a popular choice. However, if you haven’t replaced your windows for many years, or perhaps you’ve moved into a new home and aren’t sure when your windows were replaced, you may need to think about replacing them. There are some signs to look out for to understand when your old windows could be underperforming and in need of replacement.

Save On Energy Bills

This one is less about your windows themselves and more about the economic climate. We know that times are tough at the moment, with energy bills and the cost of living on the rise. If you’re looking to save money, then your older, underperforming windows could be a weak point in your financial plans.

It’s definitely worth talking to our team about the benefits of double or triple glazing, and how much replacement windows can help you save on your heating bills. In fact, you can use our handy online energy saving calculator to see this for yourself. Even if you think your windows are doing what they need to do, they could be letting warm air escape and cold air into your property – and costing you too much money on your central heating as a result.

A Crack In the Frame

Older windows experience wear and tear over time – it’s just one of those things. If you notice a small crack in your window frames, no matter how slight, you’ll likely want to look at getting it repaired as quickly as you can. However, this could be a sign that your current windows are in need of an upgrade. You don’t want to repair over and again when replacing your windows altogether could be the most time-effective and cost-effective option.

Alongside the energy efficiency issues with cracked window frames, this issue can hint at a weakness that potential intruders could exploit. Older, rotted or damaged window frames could be used as leverage to break into your property. While we don’t want to scaremonger, security is an important concern for many people we speak to, so it’s important that we make you aware of what a simple crack in your window frames could lead to – and why you would want to replace them.

Draughts Enter Your Home

During cold weather, draughts are another indicator that your windows are in need of an upgrade. As your windows get older, they’ll start letting in more cold air from the outside. This is most noticeable in winter and, as we mentioned earlier, it can mean that the precious heat that your central heating is generating gets lost easily.

Outdated Style 

Windows are one of the first things people notice about a property – and so kerb appeal is an important factor when you’re looking at home improvements. You don’t want your older windows to let the side down, particularly if you’re renovating other parts of your property such as the front door or building an extension.

Whether you’re looking to follow the latest trends or create something completely unique, we offer many styles that help modernise your home. Choose from a range of opening configurations, colour options, handles and hardware accessories and more to complete the look and enhance the overall aesthetic of your home.
