When you're at home you want to relax. You don't want to have old, damaged windows bothering your time with family and creating more things for you to worry about. Here are five types of windows that can ruin your weekend

1- The Unmovable Stone

You know what it feels like to come to your window and try to lift with your usual amount of effort and instead of nicely sliding up the window stays put. It feels like you're at the gym, not trying to open a window and get some breeze in your home. This can stem from one of two problems: there is an issue with the mechanism that levels out the window OR your window frame has swelled due to the humidity in a big big way. Either way, installing new windows is the only way to fix this issue. 

2- Chain Rattler 

If you wake up in the middle of the night and have to walk through the darkness, you'd rather not hear eerie rattles and shakes from all over your home. Older windows that have weather sealing past their prime will rattle in their frames, making a terrifying noise if you aren't expecting it. Odds are those home noises at night aren't a ghost with unfinished business, but your windows that need to be repaired!

3-Slam-A-Jam

Have you ever had an open window on a nice spring day that SLAMS down out of nowhere? It's incredibly startling and makes you wonder who is angrily trying to break your windows. There is usually no one at fault, however, aside from the person who decides when new windows get put in. A slamming window like this means something is wrong with the foundation of the window and it needs to be replaced. Suggested you get it replaced ASAP before it slams and breaks the window panes or someones fingers comfortably sitting on the sill! 

4-The Foggy Peephole

Didn't you just clean your window? Why does it look so foggy? These are questions you may have when your window starts to show glass failure. If you're window is foggy no matter what the season, odds are your glass is just needing to be reinstalled.
