Window Replacement Framingham
One of the most problematic windows in your home may be lurking below… that’s right! Your basement window, depending on the age of your home, may be causing you significant trouble. If it isn’t now, it may in the future.
Window Replacement Framingham has performed numerous repairs and replacements on basement windows throughout the years, and has become very familiar with some tell-tale warning signs when it comes to your basement windows:
In many older homes, basement windows are often single-paned and not very sturdy. Frames in these homes are typically wooden and may be deteriorating, or metal and may be rusting. In either case, this can significantly compromise the structural integrity of the basement window and the safety of your basement and ultimately your home overall.
If you notice that your basement windows do not appear to be very sturdy or the frame shows visible signs of wear and damage, call Window Replacement Framingham at 508-444-8495.
We are your local Framingham Window Company and will be happy to make an assessment of the condition of your windows.
2. Lack of energy efficiency
Energy efficiency is a term we frequently discuss at Window Replacement Framingham. It's important that your windows keep your heating and cooling costs as low as possible. If your basement windows have visibly damaged panes or frames, there is a strong likelihood that your energy efficiency is suffering as a result.
3. Inoperable windows
If your basement windows are aged, they may be painted shut or inoperable for a variety of other reasons. In instances of finished basements, basements used as living spaces, or even in basements used primarily for storage, it is always important to make sure the area is safe.
If your basement window is inoperable or painted shut, it will not be able to be opened occasionally to let out harmful fumes or other risk factors that can result from water heaters, furnaces, or other devices on the lower level that may release fumes of any kind.
4. Infestations of bugs and other unwanted pests
No one wants creepy crawlers invading their home. Like many the basement can seem eerie and dark, even without these uninvited guests, so their entrance into your home is anything but welcome!
If your insulation in your basement windows is not functioning correctly, or if the frames are damaged, insects and perhaps other pests may be able to enter your basement through your window. If you notice that you have a rising insect problem in your basement or home, your basement window may be to blame.
Basement windows are an important element of your home’s security and energy efficiency. Making sure that they are installed properly, repaired at the first sign of any potential damage, and replaced if needed are all efficient ways to make sure that your basement stays safe and free of unwanted pests, as well as energy efficient and safe for your whole family.
