Windows are an essential part of any building or house. Not only do they keep the cold winter winds out but also keep the heat away during harsh summer months. Windows also allow you to enjoy natural light during the day. Along with these benefits, windows are also important when it comes to keeping intruders like mosquitoes and other insects out. 

However, all these benefits can only be enjoyed if your windows are in top condition. Read ahead to know more about residential repairs. 

Residential Window Repairs 

There are four major problems a residential window can face. These are listed below along with their possible repairs. 

  1. Windows that don’t work 

You might sometimes need a quick escape or if there’s an emergency, then the windows can help you. However, old windows or less functional windows can restrict you from doing so. In such a case, it is advised that you get them fixed because broken windows are of no use.  

  1. Damaged window frames 

Not just the windows, but window frames are equally important. However, if you have wooden window frames, chances are they can be rotten, cracked, or warped. If that’s the case, then it is better to consult a professional on time. 

  1. Cracked window panes 

The window panes can develop cracks due for several reasons. If left untreated, the pane can crack further causing the entire window to shatter. Thus, to ensure everyone’s safety, it is better to get the cracked window panes repaired soon. 

  1. Drafted windows 

The average life span of a window is about 15 to 20 years. After this, they can develop problems like drafts. These are mainly the leaks in the window that allow hot and cold air to enter the house. If you too have noticed a similar problem with your windows, consulting a professional would be a smart decision.
