The Telltale Noise Of Old Windows

If you’ve had the same windows in your home for as long as you can remember, it’s hard to imagine how your home would be different with new Carpentaria, CA windowsWindows are a big investment and there are many reasons for that. They can make a big difference in a home, for example. You know new windows would make the home look different and you probably know the house would even feel different, but what about noise? Would the home sound different as well? You bet it would. Here are a few noises your old windows might be making, whether you hear them or not.   

Single Pane Glass Rattles 

If you have really old windows with single pane glass, there’s nothing that stops that glass from ratting and shaking if a big truck goes by the home. The little rattles might be something you notice on occasion, or perhaps have blocked out completely because you’re used to it. But if you get new windows with double or even triple pane glass, you won’t have that sound anymore and you’ll recognize the peace.  

Single Pane Glass Allows Everything In 

If your neighbors are talking next door and you can hear pretty much everything they’re saying, it’s your window’s fault. Single pane glass doesn’t insulate at all and it lets in heat, air, and even conversations. You don’t need to know when they’re going to mow or not mow or whatever else they’re talking about and if you’d rather not hear about it, new windows are in store.  

Opening And Closing Creaks 

You might not care what noises your windows make when they open and close. After all, it’s not something you do on a regular basis and once they’re opened or closed, that’s the end of the noise. But that noise of opening and closing the windows is a sign that they may be in need of maintenance. Some lubrication might do the trick, which will keep them in working order longer. If the noise persists, talk to a window specialist about repairs or replacement.
