Do your windows need replacing? Windows don’t last forever, unfortunately, and there are some signs it’s time to consider replacing them. Take a look at three of the ones you can be on the lookout for.
Sign #1: Is it Drafty in Here?
One sign your windows are getting old are drafts. If you can feel drafts around the edges or the frames or heat in the summer or cold in the window, it’s time to think about replacing those windows.
Sign #2: Energy Bills Keep Going Up
Have you noticed your energy bills this year are higher than your bills from the same time last year? If your utility bills keep creeping up, it could be a sign your windows are not doing their job. Higher energy use often means heat and cool are escaping from your house, so your HVAC has to work harder, using more energy. It could be time to take a look at those old windows.
Sign #3: Condensation on the Inside
In the cool months of winter, if you see condensation on the inside of your windows, it means they’re not keeping the cold out. As the warm air meets the cold window, you’ll see condensation. This mostly happens with older windows but won’t happen with insulated double-pane windows.
New windows are an investment in your home, but they’re worth the money. You can lower your energy bills, increase your comfort, and make sure your home is secure with updated windows. Contact Premiere Roofing to find out more about how to know if your windows need replacing.
How old is your roof? Is it in good shape? When you have a roof over your head, you want to protect it, because it protects you, your family, and your home. To get the most out of it, take a look at three ways to increase its lifespan.
#1: Watch the Gutters
Your gutters and downspouts are there to direct water away from your roof and your home. If they get clogged with leaves, dirt, and debris, water can’t flow through them. When this happens, you risk water damage to your roof, leading to leaks and premature breakdown of your roofing material.
#2: Trim Branches
Big trees with lots of branches make for a wonderfully shady house and yard. But when branches get too close to your house, even a moderate storm can blow them down onto your roof. To keep your roof lasting longer, trim the trees and branches that hang close to your home.
#3: Get a Professional Inspection
Only a roofing professional can accurately evaluate the state of your roof. An annual inspection by a pro can help identify any small issues. Addressing small damage is much easier than taking care of extensive damage. These minor repairs can extend the life of your roof and prevent the need for early replacement.
The biggest factors in your roof’s quality and longevity of are the quality of the materials used, the workmanship, and the attention you give it throughout the year. But you don’t have to get on a ladder and manage your roof care yourself. The team at Premiere Roofing has got you covered.
