When the elastic on your running shorts stops holding together, you get new ones. But with replacement windows in Fallbrook, CA, there’s no set time to get them replaced. You get to make the decision as to when you move ahead with that project. Even if you know the windows are on the old side and not operating as well as they used to, you can still hang onto them. It’s all up to you. Here are a few things to think about when you are at least considering your options.
Waiting For It To Be Broken
When you look at your windows, you might shrug and think, huh, they don’t look broken…may as well hang onto them. But ‘broken’ is a large word in the window world. The glass might not be cracked, and the frame might not be falling apart, but there can be issues that may go under the broken category. When the frames leak so much air your energy bill is sky high or when you can’t open them because they are warped or painted shut, they are still broken, in a way. You don’t really have to wait for something more to happen to them. They’re pretty broken already, in many ways.
The Budget Is Ready
If you’ve known for a while that your windows are on their way out, you might be ready to put new ones in when you have the budget ready. If you have a home improvement savings area in your account of you’ve been saving for that particular reason, dig into that account and use the budget for that need.
