If you are in limbo about whether it is time to replace your windows and doors, there are a few guidelines that will assist you in determining how imminent your replacement should be. We will list some of the tell-tale factors that will help you determine the answer.
- If there are sounds emanating from your windows or doors when you open and close them, this is a sign of ill-fitting windows and/or doors.
- If you may have had pets that have damaged your windows in ways that cannot be repaired.

- If there are accumulations of moisture on the inside of your windows and/or doors, this is a sign of leaky seals.
- If you notice that when you are near a window or door, you feel a significant draft.
- Another sign of problems is if it is noisy inside your home when there is no reason for noises to be heard.

These are a few of the obvious signs that you need to seriously consider contacting a contractor sooner rather than later. Malfunctioning windows can also be a security issue as well as an eyesore. It is difficult to maintain a home that has curb appeal when the windows are subpar.
Do not Forget Those Doors
The types of replacement doors Oakville residents lean toward are doors that are not only appealing to the eye but also durable. The harsh winters of Canada are hard on exposed items, so the entry doors to your home are no exception. The entry door also allows your guests to obtain the first impression of you and your home, and you want that impression to be a good one.
If your door is not functioning properly, it also creates a greater risk for high energy cost as well as an increased risk for home invasion. A new door is one of the main eye-catchers for those who may be shopping for a new home as well, so replacing that dingy worn outer door can automatically increase your home’s curb appeal and get you a substantial monetary increase should you decide to sell your home.
Remember to seek out a certified contractor when readying yourself for a replacement project. A poorly installed door or window can present dangerous risks, such as mold, to the interior of your home and its environment. Once you have all the facts, you are ready to move forward with your project and we hope that you will allow the professionals at Optima Windows and Doors the privilege of serving your needs.
