Michigan has a temperate climate characterized by well-defined warm and cool periods. The alternating temperatures, coupled with the condensation of water vapor from the Great Lakes, cause a variety of problems for homeowners. Windows take a beating. Here are some of the usual issues.
Condensation causes windows to become cloudy or foggy, indicating problems in the seals between window panes. Failed seals allow heat to escape from inside your home, and causes your heating system to work harder than it should, resulting in higher electric bills.
Rotting, Warping, Mold
Many Michigan homes, particularly in Detroit, are more than 10 years old yet still have their original wood windows. Although these wooden windows look beautiful, they could hide various problems in them, such as rotting or warping wood, and mold.
Drafty or Broken Windows
Old windows can become drafty for a variety of reasons, foremost of which is faulty window stripping, broken window seals and cracking window frames and glass.
If your home is suffering from these signs, it might be time to have your windows replaced. Kroll Construction recommends using Alside® Sheffield® Fusion-Welded Vinyl replacement windows for various reasons:
