Why this may be the Perfect Time to Start Thinking about Replacement Windows for your Home

Jan 30, 2013

Here in the Midwest, we’re certainly seeing our fair share of weird winter weather. Just recently, the temperatures warmed up to over 70-degrees. The sun was high in the sky, with a few scattered clouds. It felt like a spring day. In the handful of days that followed, we saw a downpour of rain and a 30-degree drop in temperature. By the middle of the week, it was snowing and in the 20s. For folks who have lived in the Midwest for any period of time, sudden changes in the weather are nothing new. We live in a region that’s fortunate to have regular seasons. It’s true that we embrace winter, spring, summer, and fall with all the blessings that come with each season change. But, when seasons start to confuse themselves with each other, it can cause a little bit of trouble. Your windows, for one example, can be sensitive to extreme weather fluctuations and crack without warning.

Dramatic overnight temperature changes can be hard on windows. Many traditional windows are, after all, merely made of wood and glass. Wood tends to expand and retract with changes in temperature and humidity. You may have noticed that there’s a door in your house that tends to stick in the frame more during the high-humidity portion of the summer here in the Midwest. There’s a prime example.

Believe it or not, glass suffers from many of the same problems as wood. Glass, especially when it’s older standard glass and not newer insulated or tempered glass, tends to suffer from what the industry calls “thermal stress cracks.” It’s something that can happen during the course of any season when the temperatures swing from one extreme to the other. Even though thermal stress cracks are more common in picture windows or large windows beneath overhangs, it’s something that can happen to any window in the house. And although there isn’t much you can do about the weather here in the Midwest, you can certainly replace any cracked windows with newer replacement windows that are better designed and engineered to stand up to the weather and the test of time. Continental Siding in Kansas and Missouri has a great selection of new replacement windows that will look great and perform beautifully in your home.

Many people tend to associate Continental Siding with vinyl siding, but we’re also a great resource for custom-made, premium quality vinyl replacement windows, as well as wood and aluminum windows. Our line of replacement windows includes Weather Shield, Heartland Windows, and ProVia. Each brand features a lifetime warranty on their product, and that’s one reason why we recommend them to our customers who need to find replacements for older windows that have suffered from weather changes and cracks. In addition, each brand offers a vast array of styles, shapes, sizes, and other options for your new replacement windows. At Continental Siding, you can select a replacement window that not only solves an existing cracked window problem, but also adds beauty and distinction to your home.
