Replacement windows, as indicated by their name, are designed to replace windows in a framed space that is already built into the house. There are many reasons why homeowners choose to get replacement windows for their homes. A homeowner may simply wish to boost their curb appeal with an updated style of window that can contrast or compliment their home’s aesthetic scheme. Usually, a homeowner is looking to replace a window or windows in their home that are faulty and broken beyond repair. This is usually due to the fact that, like most things in life, windows have a lifespan and eventually need to be replaced.

There are multiple signs that homeowners will notice when it finally comes time to replace your windows. The most common sign that people will be “foggy” windows, which are a sign that the seal of the windows have been broken which has allowed condensation to build in between the panes of glass.
