- Is there chipped paint or wood around your windows?
- Is it difficult to clean your windows, and after you are done so they still look dirty?
- Are your old windows sticking?
- Are your old windows leaking?
- Is there dry rot around the pane?
If you answered yes more than no to these questions, then it is time to seriously consider replacing your home’s windows.
