You walk or look through them every single day. But how often do you really think about the impact your home’s windows have on its value, beauty and livability?

There are four main reasons why a homeowner might need to replace windows or doors:
This is the most compelling reason to change a door or window. On top of testing your patience, windows and doors that stick aren’t giving you the optimum benefit in terms of convenience and efficiency. Performance is also tied to safety-if doors are windows are not opening properly they can be a safety hazard.
Check for drafts around doors and windows by moving a lit candle slowly around the edges. If the flame flickers, you have a draft — one of the biggest drains on the energy efficiency of your home. Drafts add up to real dollars on your heating and cooling bills, so this is, for many people, the impetus to replace their windows or doors.
Older windows and doors require maintenance — scraping, painting and caulking. Newer windows and doors feature low maintenance cladding, a protective exterior covering that requires minimal maintenance. Many newer windows also make cleaning easy with a convenient tilt feature that allows you to wash them from inside your house.
Curb appeal is vital if you’re selling your house and a satisfying lifestyle enhancement if you plan to stay in your home for years to come. Updated windows not only improve energy efficiency and lower maintenance costs, they make your house look more appealing as well. When choosing your replacement doors and windows, consider quality, design flexibility and the reputation of the manufacturer. The number one attribute you should look for in a replacement window or door is quality. Windows are one of the most noticeable parts of your home, so make sure you look for windows that are of furniture-grade quality.
