Posted by Skye Tunks on 20th March 2020

There is no certain time to upgrade your windows, it can be Winter or Summer when you upgrade them. It all depends on the condition your windows are in. We have put together some top things that you need to look out for to know if now is the right time. 


They Are Damaged or Warped 

If your window problem is minor, such as needing new weatherstripping then you might be able to just repair your window. However, we do recommend just replacing your window. as repairing could just lead to bigger problems down the line. One of the main things to look out for, is whether your window is sticking when you try to open or close it, if it is doing this then you need to consider an upgrade. 

You Need to Reduce Your Bills

It sounds strange, but upgrading your windows can help to reduce your household bills, this is because most windows are designed to provide heat in the winter by letting in sunlight. However, if your windows are drafty, then you could see your bills rise by up to 25%. Consider replacing your windows with energy-efficient ones to reduce your heating and cooling bills. 

You Want a House Makeover 

If you have recently had a house makeover then you might also want to consider upgrading your windows, as they are one of the most prominent features after all. Look at your windows to see if the colour is starting to fade or the window material is warping - This would suggest you are ready for an upgrade. Having new windows installed in your home doesn’t have to be expensive either, there are always affordable windows that still look presentable for your home.
