Nothing lasts forever. Over time, even the best quality windows can become ineffective. Have you noticed that condensation has started fogging up between your double glazed panes? Perhaps you’re experiencing draughts, faulty components, or rickety panes? If this is the case, then you may need to look at getting replacement windows. Although the internet is full of information when it comes to researching replacement windows, there is plenty of misinformation out there. We’ve debunked some of the biggest myths about repairing windows…

Myth: Replacement windows cost more than repairing glass windows yourself

The internet is full of quick-fix window repair solutions. While these can work, especially in the short term, they’re not guaranteed to be long-term solutions. If you’re set on saving money, a well-executed DIY fix should somewhat improve your window situation at a low cost (or help you bide your time as you save for a replacement window). This being said… While investing in replacement windows costs more upfront, it is the best solution if you want a guaranteed fix. Plus, it will mean your existing problems won’t just get worse over time. If something costs more, there is usually a reason for it!

Myth: Repairing windows will save as much energy as replacement windows

Often, we find that replacement windows are the best option when it comes to saving energy. This is because properties that need replacement windows tend to have old, single glazed windows. Double glazed windows are a much better alternative, as they’re able to stop heat escaping from your home, whilst preventing the cold outside air from seeping inside. Of course, if you already have double glazed windows, then it may be the case that all you need is a simple repair job.
