Windows have multiple roles apart from making your home look great. They allow in natural light, provide better ventilation and complement both the interior and exterior of your house. Yet despite the many positive benefits they provide, windows are prone to various issues that can compromise your home’s comfort level and aesthetics it not attended to.
Renewal by Andersen® – Brainerd (Better Living Concepts), your custom windows company, discusses these issues and how we address them.
Window Seal Failure
Condensation on your windows isn’t usually a huge concern–except when it appears between the glass panes of your double-pane window. The cloudy or foggy appearance of the glass means the seal between the panes has been broken, leaving your window vulnerable to all sorts of problems, the biggest of which is lower energy efficiency. Broken seals upset the stability of your home’s interior temperature, which means your heating and cooling systems will have to work twice as hard to maintain the comfortable temperature level you’re used to.
Windows that appear unusually foggy are good indicators that it’s time to consider having Renewal by Andersen – Brainerd replace them with something from our excellent selection of affordable replacement windows. We also offer a variety of customization options to choose from.
Feel a breeze coming from your windows when you pass by? Those are air drafts leaking in. Leaky windows have lost their insulating properties, and if left unchecked, your home will become plagued by heightened energy bills and decreased energy efficiency.
The presence of air leakage means that your window frame is damaged, and the best way to address the resulting drafts is by having your windows replaced.
Extreme weather and fluctuating temperatures are often the culprits behind cracked window frames, which is why you should maintain a proactive maintenance plan throughout the year, and especially this coming winter, with one of top window and home improvement contractors in the area, Renewal by Andersen – Brainerd.
At Renewal by Andersen, we use a specialized frame material called Fibrex®, which combines the strength of wood with the low-maintenance qualities of vinyl. Fibrex is stronger than either could be alone–so strong, if fact, that drafty windows and cracked frames are virtually eliminated. It’s like hitting two birds with one stone!
