If you have older windows on your home, it’s easy enough to tell through the noises they make—and allow—in your home. You will notice a lot of different signs when replacement windows in Ventura, CA are in order, but the noises around your windows are definitely one of them. Here are some of the noises you will hear when you need new windows:
Everything Going On Outside
One of the things you may notice quite a bit is the noise going on outside your home. You should have a quiet, peaceful house, but that’s not the case when every little thing that happens outside sounds like it’s happening inside. When traffic goes by, dogs bark, kids play, and so on and you can hear it all as plain as day, your windows aren’t doing well. Older windows could be single pane glass, which doesn’t block much. When you get new windows, you can get double or even triple pane glass and block tons more noise out of your house.
When an airplane goes over, a car drives by, or someone shouts outside, do the panes of your windows rattle? Unless it’s a big noise, they shouldn’t. They could be loose in the frames or the seals could be broken. IF your window panes rattle and shake at the slightest wind or noise, it’s time for replacements. Once the new windows go in, you’ll be surprised at the new quiet nature they have.
Windows are supposed to glide opened and closed and you may not remember what that’s like when you have old windows. If your windows take a shove (or more) when you need to open them and they complain in the noise they make in the process, it’s time for a change. It’s good that they still open, but it shouldn’t be a struggle. IF they are hard to operate, they might be warped and on their way to being stuck shut for good. When you open or close your new windows, you won’t hear a thing.
These are just a few of the noises you might encounter as your windows age and you are in need of new models. There are plenty of other things that show you replacements are in order as well. IF you’ve heard some noises, and you aren’t sure what to do, ask professionals for advice. They can do a free assessment and let you in on what’s best.
