First, let’s cover some common window issues homeowners may encounter.
Condensation or Moisture:
Condensation and moisture in between your window panes are typically the results of a broken seal. A broken seal will allow the gas to seep out and to retain moisture in between the window panes. Although a broken seal is not as detrimental as a cracked or broken window, it can have an effect on your utility bills especially if you live somewhere where extreme weather is common.
The solution for this can either be to repair the seal which is the more affordable option or replace the window completely which can cost you thousands of dollars. If you are like most of us and like to save money, you will likely prefer to have the windows repaired rather than replaced.
However, if you find these issues during the inspection process chances are you may not get away with merely doing the repairs. Lenders can be sticklers for these type of problems, and they may require a full replacement as a condition for closing the sale of your home.
