Do Your Windows and Doors Need Replacement?

Energy Efficient Door and Window Installer Livonia MIHere’s how to tell if your current windows and doors need to be replaced:

  • You feel a breeze when you hold a hand up to the door
  • Bent or crooked frames create visible gaps
  • The panes rattle every time you close the door
  • Hairline cracks due to age run across or down the door

Sometimes, all it takes is a look at your crookedly-hung front door to realize that you are probably losing money every single month on excess heating or cooling bills. However, do not assume that age is the only factor in replacement. Environmental factors also play a role, as well as past maintenance on the door or window.
