Any Signs of Damage or Degradation
The most obvious sign that it might be time to replace the windows of your Edgewater property is damage or degradation. Wear and tear occur naturally over time. Chicago’s wild weather can also cause damage to your windows. Check for decay and water damage on your window frames, as well as cracks, broken glass, chipping, rotting, or mold.
Higher Than Normal Utility Bills
Are your utility bills suddenly more expensive than they used to be? Your windows might be leaking air both in and out, which can force your heat and air conditioning to work higher, making your bills more expensive.
Cold, Blustery Drafts
If it’s a January evening and you feel Chicago’s cold winter winds while you’re inside, it is probably time to replace your windows.
The Edgewater neighborhood can be noisy. The sounds of construction, traffic, and general street noise can seep into your building via old windows and doors and be distracting. The commercial windows we use today are much more effective at reducing noise than in the past. You have the option of choosing new windows that reduce noise by up to 95%.
