Most windows need replacing because they leak or are worn out. When they leak, not only do your heating and air conditioning bills go up, but the chances for water in the wall cavity increase significantly, from condensation, rain or melting snow. That moisture intrusion takes a toll by rotting the structure of the home and creating a mold-growing environment in the wall cavity under the window.
Unfortunately, during the replacement window sales presentation, few if any sales reps will talk to you about potential damages in the walls because they don’t want to disrupt the sale. If you don’t ask about it, most won’t go there for fear of losing the sale.
Just simply replacing a window will not repair the damage created by the old window. You don’t want hidden, unseen, expensive damage surprises on such a large investment. You need to know what the full costs are if structural repairs or mold abatement is needed.. Call us for an accurate, unbiased moisture assessment prior to replacing your windows.
