Is It Time To Replace Your Home’s Exterior?
This can be a tough question for even experienced homeowners to answer. From windows that may not be insulating your home as well as they once were to siding that has begun to warp or fade, knowing when aging materials have reached the point of outdated can be a tricky undertaking.
In addition, many homeowners do not view this replacement process as an investment. Rather, they view it as a massive timesink that eats up much of their annual renovation and home improvement budget. However, with a change of mindset, replacing your home’s aging exterior can mean saving hundreds each year on energy bills and refreshing your home’s facade to bring out its former glory!
Aging and Foggy Windows
One of the easiest ways to tell your windows are not providing the insulation or seal they once did is if the interior of the multi-pane glass is beginning to fog. This can be brought on in many ways, but it is most common to see if the temperature changes. For instance, if it was chill in the morning but begins to increase in temperature into the lat morning, your interior window may fog, revealing a fault in its insulation. If this is the case, it is best to replace them as soon as possible.
While it is slightly harder to tell if your home’s siding needs to be replaced, there are a few key warning signs to watch out for. For instance, warping or sun-damaged boards can be an indicator of spot damage. However, these issues can also indicate a larger problem that could mean it is time for new siding altogether. Additionally, if you notice gaps beginning to form in places it shouldn’t or there are noticeable faults letting in the elements, it is critical to remediate the issue as quickly as possible t avoid problems occurring throughout the rest of the home.
