Should You Repair or Replace Your Windows?

The question of whether to repair or replace your windows is a big one. On one hand, repairing your windows will save money and allow you to get more life out of your windows. On the other hand, replacement windows offer the latest technology and efficiency, plus boost your home’s curb appeal and property value.

Let’s look at when you should repair your windows and when you should replace them.

When to Repair Your Windows in Arizona

Repairing your windows is obviously much cheaper than replacing them. And, many of the common issues that can happen to windows are repairable. So, if you’re only dealing with a window or two that’s giving you trouble but the rest are in good condition, making the necessary repairs is probably best.

With that said, it’s not always possible to repair windows, especially if they are double- or triple-pane. Older, single-pane windows are the easiest to fix, but it all depends on the issue. Also, if all of your windows are giving you trouble, it’s probably best to move forward with all new replacement windows. Otherwise, you’re going to be at the mercy of your windows for years to come.

Here are some of the situations where a window repair will probably suffice:

  • Cracked or broken glass
  • Broken muntins or mullions
  • Slow-moving window sashes
  • Missing or damaged exterior drip cap
  • Poor exterior window casing
  • Minor water leaks

When to Replace Your Windows in Arizona

An entire house of new windows will end up costing you thousands. So how do you know that you’re ready for a new window instead of a quick repair?

We recommend replacing your windows if they have water condensation inside the glass, structural problems or major water leaks. Even if your windows don’t have these problems, they may still need to be replaced. Windows last an average of 20 years, and it’s possible that your windows have gaps in security, safety and efficiency.

The benefits of replacing your windows include:

  • Increased home value
  • Enhanced security and safety
  • Improved indoor air comfort
  • Improved efficiency
  • Better noise reduction
  • Enhanced curb appeal
  • Easier to clean and care for
