Signs You Need New Windows for Your Hampton Roads Home

Signs You Need New Windows for Your Hampton Roads Home

Your Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, or Norfolk home has to endure all kinds of weather from the hottest days of summer to the occasional snow storm and from frigid winter nights to the high winds that blow during hurricane season. Are your windows able to perform well in every season while providing the superior energy efficiency you need?

It can be difficult to tell when it’s time for new windows, especially if there are no visible signs of wear. Generally, windows last 15 to 20 years, but even newer windows may not provide the performance you want.


Here’s the deal:


Some builders use inferior windows in order to cut costs. That means even windows in a brand new home may be causing you to pay too much for your heating and cooling costs.

So, how can you tell it’s time for an upgrade? Here are some of the most common signs to look for:

  • Drafts: Can you get an idea of the temperature outside by holding your hand near a window? If so, it’s time to invest in a Virginia Beach window installation project.
  • Increased Energy Costs: If you’ve noticed your energy costs creeping up, your windows could be partially to blame.
  • Single-Pane Windows: If you still have single-pane windows, you are not getting the money-saving efficiency you’d get with dual-pane window replacement products.
  • Difficult to Operate: Many homeowners put up with windows they can’t open or close easily—or at all! If your windows are difficult to operate, it’s time for a change.
  • Condensation: If condensation on windows is a regular occurrence or if frost forms on the inside of your windows, you need to consider energy-efficient windows for your Virginia Beach or Chesapeake home.
  • Moisture Between Panes: Double-pane glass should have an airtight seal. If moisture develops between the panes, it means the seal has been broken.
