Three Signs That You Need a Window Update Stat

High-quality, well-maintained windows can last for decades, but just like with every part of a house, they will break down at some point thanks to a couple of factors.

Here are the signs that can tell you if it is finally high time to get replacement windows in Peoria, IL:

They’re damaged

When do you know if your windows only need a repair job rather than a full replacement? If the problems are only minor such as weatherstripping or something about the hardware, then it is best to go for a repair. However, if the windows are already warped or has a broken frame, then it is wiser to have them replaced, since such damage can make them prone to develop more problems in the future.

They are costing you a lot in electricity bills

Yes, your windows can be the reason behind your high energy bill. Windows work by providing heat inside the home. This means that if you have installed drafty ones, your electricity bills can blow up to about 10% to 25% more.

"I would recommend RBA of Central Illinois for QUALITY windows and doors. Compared to our old cheap, thin vinyl windows, Andersen blows them away. You can easily tell by how well the sliding doors fit and close, and how heavy duty they are. We also cannot hear the wind rushing through the house in inclement weather anymore! And the black window frames we went with are amazing to look at. Aaron, Al, Darrell, and Cory all were professional and went all out to finish the job, given the weather they had to deal with. I would definitely recommend. They were also on top of communicating with me given the weather delays, and what I could expect for them coming out. Five stars!"
