Knowing when, why, and how to replace or repair the windows on your Tennessee home can be a bit daunting. Our team of experts at Window Depot of Chattanooga has these tips to make window repair and window replacement decisions easier for you.
Signs You May Need to Consider Window Replacement

- Can’t see well through the window, even when it’s clean
- Condensation or mold between the panes of glass
- Mold or moisture between the wall and window frame

When to Replace Your Windows
Are you wondering when would be the best time to install replacement windows? In Tennessee, windows can be replaced year-round. Obviously, periods of very rainy weather or extreme cold temperatures are less than ideal times. Our friendly staff is always happy to help you schedule a time that works best for you and your family.
When a Simple Repair Will Do
In some cases, older windows don’t need to be replaced right away, particularly if they don’t fit the criteria above. A meeting with a professional window technician can help you determine the right course of action when it comes to window repairs. Repairs may include fixes such as installing storm windows, replacing caulking, or adding weatherstripping.
Replacing windows that are past their prime with modern vinyl windows is not only about aesthetics, but it will make the interior of your home feel more comfortable by reducing drafts, reducing the possibility of mold, and save you energy and money in the long run.
