When to replace windows in your home
The first step in determining whether your windows need replacing or not is to examine them. Some obvious signs of damage to windows are cracks on the panes or frames that are rotting. These not only reduce the aesthetic appeal of your home, but they also reduce energy efficiency. Another visible sign of windows needing replacement is the presence of mould or mildew, which also creates a health risk.
Old or damaged windows can compromise the energy efficiency of your home. To establish whether window replacement is necessary, check windows for air drafts.
Another way to see if the energy efficiency of your windows is diminished is to look over your energy bill. If your energy costs are inexplicably rising, your windows may be the culprit. As your windows age, they become less efficient. The seals tend to weaken, letting drafts and moisture in.
A general rule of thumb is to replace your windows every 20 years. This will also ensure that your windows are up to date with the latest technology and increase the energy efficiency of your home.
Types of window cracks
There are different types of window cracks, and the type of crack will determine the kind of repair needed. The three types are stress cracks, pressure cracks, and impact cracks. Stress cracks, also known as thermal stress cracks, can form due to sudden temperature changes or changes in the shading where the window is located. The improper installation of the frame can also be the cause. These cracks often appear close to the edge of the window pane.
Pressure cracks are not as common. They show up when there are changes in the climate’s pressure system. A telltale sign of this kind of crack is the hourglass shape that forms. Impact cracks look like a starburst with a centre that radiates outward. They form when the glass is hit by a hard object like a rock. If the window already has stress cracks, even small ones, it becomes more vulnerable when there is impact.

How much does it cost to replace my windows?
The cost of window replacement differs depending on the type of window, its size, quality, material used, and added features you may request. Generally, the average price ranges from $800 to $4,000 per window.
For single-hung windows, you can expect to pay between $400 and $850, whereas double-hung windows can cost anywhere from $800 to $1,800.
Single slider windows can cost between $700 and $2,200, and double slide windows could go from $800 to $2,500.
As for picture windows, they range between $700 and $900. Both awning and casement windows cost $900 to $1,200 to install.
A window’s quality is a major factor in the price. It may be tempting to go for the cheapest option available, but pay attention to quality as it relates to the window’s strength and energy efficiency. Having to constantly replace low-quality windows will cost you more in the long run. Good quality windows will also increase the value of your home.
What happens if a window cracks?
If a window cracks, it will need to be addressed as soon as possible. If it’s caught early enough and is not an impact crack, the window may just need to be repaired. If there is a delay in attending to the crack, this only gives the crack time to spread, leading to costly repairs. You may even find yourself needing to replace the entire window.
Cracked windows reduce the energy efficiency of your home. They can also create a safety issue. If the crack causes the window pane to loosen from the frame or is cracked all the way across, the window pane can become dislodged and lead to injury. Shards from cracked glass can also loosen in windy conditions and hurt you. As mentioned earlier, your windows are more likely to crack upon impact if there are already stress cracks on them. Having one or more cracked windows will decrease the curb appeal of your home.
