How To Tell If You Need Replacement Windows

Metropolitan Contractors has years of experience replacing damaged wood or vinyl window frames. We recommend Simonton and Lansing brand replacement windows, but we can install any brand of window you choose.

The most common question we are asked here at Metropolitan Contractors is how you know when to replace the windows in your home or business. Replacement windows can be a significant investment, and it is essential to know that you need replacement windows. Here are a few questions to ask yourself before investing in replacement windows.

Is there any physical damage to the window glass or window frame?

Is your home sweltering in the summer or cold in the winter months?

Have you noticed an increase in your monthly energy costs?

Do you see a temperature change when you walk by your windows?

Is the window glass icing over, fogging up, or rattling in high winds?

Is it difficult to open or close your windows?

Have you noticed a large amount of color fading of your flooring, furniture, or curtain fabrics?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might want to replace your home windows. We recommend replacing your windows every ten to twenty years for most homeowners. It all depends on what type of windows you have in your home and your regional climate.

Replacement Window Cost

The cost of replacement windows depends on the replacement window cost, replacement window labor, replacement window job materials, and supplies. A very rough estimate of replacing one window in your home could range from $300 to $500. The best option for estimating the replacement cost would be for a Metropolitan Contractor representative to view your home windows and provide an estimate.
