How to know it's high time to install new windows? You are welcome to take a look at the following infographic and get to know 7 clear signs that your old windows need that only treatment – replacing.
When it comes to deciding whether to install replacement windows or repair the ones you already have, it can be difficult to ensure that you make the right call. However, below are a few clear indications that you need to have replacement windows installed.
#1 – Windows Struggle to Open or Get Stuck
Although this is common with wooden frames, it can happen with vinyl windows or just about any other type as well. Windows that get stuck are not only incredibly annoying; they can pose a serious risk in the event of a fire because the extra few seconds spent struggling to get the window open could make the difference between life and death.
#2 – You're Considering Selling
Replacing sliding patio doors and windows around your home will give it a fresh new appearance. This will help your property stand out among others that may be for sale in the same area and buyers will have peace of mind in knowing that they will not have to pay out thousands for replacement vinyl windows or door replacement in Toronto a few years after moving in.
#3 – Energy Bills have Increased for no Apparent Reason
If you've noticed an increase in energy bills over the past few months, but haven't changed your habits, it could be as a result of windows no longer fitting properly. Being able to see daylight around the edges of window frames or feeling air moving around windows when they are closed is a clear indication that you – and your pocket – will benefit from having them replaced. Afterwards, energy bills could drop by as much as 25%.
#4 – Frames are Cracked
If your home has wooden window frames, these are prone to cracking and warping after a while. Cracks not only detract from the appearance of a property; they attract moisture into the frames, which in turn results in the development of black mold.
#5 – Condensation is Present Inside Window Panes
Multi-paned windows have pockets of insulating gas between each pane, and when the seals break on these, it causes moisture to build up between the panes. When this happens, the only way to repair it is to replace the panes.
#6 – You can Hear Outside Noise when Windows are Closed
Outside noise such as traffic or even a neighbor's louder than average music can be annoying. If you would like to reduce the amount of noise pollution inside your home, you will be able to do so with replacement windows. Nowadays, there are many windows available that can reduce noise inside your home significantly.
#7 – You are Planning a Home Makeover
If you're planning to add siding, paint the outside of your home or do other major renovations, replacing windows along with sliding patio doors will make a tremendous difference to the end results.

We recently moved to our new house and needed to do some repairs and renovations. Your company was recommended by our very pleased friends. The windows look amazing and the installation job Richard did was first class.
It’s not everyday that I take the time to email a contractor… but my wife insisted! You guys did a great job and you kept it quick and quiet. We’ve got a newborn who sleeps often and your man did a good job not waking her up. Cheers.
We had done our share of research before finally deciding to go with your company and we must say that EuroSeal really had the greatest value. Guess we can chalk it up to working with a manufacturer.
It is our pleasure to say thanks for a great job done by your company. Luke and his colleague did a lovely job and they were very well mannered. It was a pleasure having them around.
We especially appreciated the help of your craftsman in choosing the appropriate style and colour for our first home. In the end, the windows look beautiful and I’m extremely happy with how easy they are to clean.
We damaged one of the external hinges a month ago, and your company’s prompt and efficient handling of the service call was impressive! We appreciate how quickly your company sent over a representative to fix the problem.
