At Fremantle Door & Window, we believe in a proactive approach to replacing old doors and windows with new, custom built doors and windows. But what if your doors and windows need to be replaced before you get around to it? Do you know if it’s time to replace your doors and windows with custom built ones? Here are some signs that it may be time.
Foggy windows don’t always mean there’s a problem. Usually, they just mean there is a big difference in temperature, humidity or both between indoors and outdoors. But if you have fog between your windowpanes, it means they are no longer sealed. Since it’s almost impossible to repair a broken window seal, you are usually better off just replacing it altogether.
If you feel a warm draft in the summer or a cold draft in the winter, it is probably coming from outside and it means your windows or doors are letting in air. The solution can be as simple as replacing the weatherstripping. But if that doesn’t work, you should strongly consider new, energy efficient, custom built windows.
If any of the timber components on your windows or doors look wrinkled or wavy, it means your timber is rotting. Once you have to replace the timber frame, it may be easier to go with an entirely new window or door.
If there are insect wings around your windows or doors, you probably have termites. Not only will you need to talk to an exterminator, but you should consider having new custom built windows and doors with termite resistant, solid, exterior grade timber.
