Seasonal inspection is important in keeping your windows in top condition. With winter finally over, a spring check is in order. Here are its benefits:
 
Checking for Winter Damage
The cold season can damage your windows. The constant moisture present in the surroundings can cause paint to peel off the units. Frames may rot, and condensation may form inside the glass. A spring inspection allows you to catch these problems early in the year. This way, you can schedule window repair in Detroit MI before these troubles worsen later on.
 
Preparing for Summer
Spring checks also allow you to prepare your windows for the warm days to come. If you find that one of your units is cracking, replacing it will give your home a better chance at surviving the summer’s intense weather.
 
Are your windows drafty? Replace them with better-installed and better-insulated units. This will prevent cooled air from leaking. You’ll find that you’ll save more on energy expenses when you don’t overwork your cooling systems.
 
Selling the Home
Summer is a good time to sell your home. According to Trulia, real estate is hottest during that season. This means that if you’re planning to put your home on the market, spring is your only chance at making last-minute improvements. It makes sense then that you perform checks and repairs on the entire house just as spring begins.
 
Replacing old or faulty windows during spring may help raise your house’s resale value. In fact, based on Remodeling magazine’s findings, a midrange window replacement in the East North Central region can return up to 74.3% of your investment. That’s roughly 20% to 30% more than a bathroom addition or home office remodel can recoup. This means a good-quality window can convince buyers more than a fancy bathroom or home office can.
