At one point, the only available replacement windows that a consumer could choose from were wooden windows. However, these windows created drafts and were incredibly hard to open and close. Due to the materials used in construction, these windows were also subject to wood rot, warping, and other moisture-related issues. Today, there is a better way. A consumer can choose from a wide variety of different window types including aluminum frame, vinyl, composite, and even fiberglass.

When it comes to energy efficiency, most homeowners believe that it’s all about having the right appliances. However, when it comes to heating and cooling costs, the biggest cause of decreasing energy efficiency is usually related to the windows. It is estimated that roughly 25% of a home’s total heat loss is directly related to the windows. If your window is old, warped, or otherwise defective, that number could be higher.
Ensure that your home remains as energy efficient as possible by having Finnteriors Construction Services handle your window replacement.
St. Louis area residents who do not know if they need to replace their windows should consider the following information.
- Fog. Look out of your window. If you see any moisture buildup or fogginess, then it’s
time to replace your window. Foggy glass is a common issue with windows that have more than one pane of glass. This is because double and triple pane windows have gas between the sheets of window glass. Once this gas escapes, humid air takes its place. This results in foggy and moisture-laden windows.
- Broken. This one is fairly obvious. If you have a broken window, it will need to be replaced as soon as possible. Broken windows are violations of many homeowners’ insurance policies—do not delay
- Draftiness. A drafty window might not seem like a very big problem. However, drafty windows mean
that the outside air is easily entering your home. This greatly degrades energy efficiency and
increases the cost of living.
