Visible Damage or Other Signs of Deterioration
The clearest sign that it is time to consider replacing your Bucktown building’s windows are any signs of damage or deterioration that occurs naturally over time to even the best windows.
Experiencing the Windy City ― Inside
Chicago’s known for its high winds, but our job is to keep those winds and cold drafts outside your building, not inside. Check various windows in your property for signs of decay and water damage on your window frames. The city’s extreme weather can be the source of serious damage to high-rise windows, like cracks, chipping, rotting, mold, or even broken glass.
Expensive Utility Bills
If your utility bills are suddenly rising, it might not be ComEd’s fault. Your windows are most likely suffering air infiltration issues and leaking in and out, which makes your heat and air conditioning system work harder and much less efficiently.
Distracting Street Noise
Bucktown is a boisterous neighborhood, and old windows can allow many sounds to permeate into your property. However, the latest windows can go a long way towards blocking out street noise and making your property much more peaceful. Some windows with Sound Control Glass options can even reduce noise levels by greater than 60% and beyond!
