What to Do About Your Home’s Cracked Window Glass

Cracked Window Glass

Having a cracked window at your home might seem insignificant, but it’s not. If unaddressed, it can lead to long-term problems. So, rather than ignoring your cracked window glass, it’s best to do something about it.

Why Replace a Window That Has Cracked Glass?

A crack in your home’s window can be the beginning of a variety of problems, which is why addressing it the right way is extremely important. While simply replacing the glass can be an option, sometimes a window isn’t worth saving. That’s why it’s often best to replace the whole window. With a window replacement project, you avoid the pitfalls associated with cracked window glass, such as:

  • Decreased curb appeal – A cracked window can hurt your home’s curb appeal drastically, as it can make the exterior look worn-down and neglected. Not to mention, the crack can also be an eyesore for you.
  • Safety risks – Cracked glass breaks easier than newer, more durable glass, so leaving it unaddressed can open you and your home to safety concerns.
  • Susceptibility to weather – A cracked glass pane leaves a home’s interior susceptible to damage from heavy rainstorms or other severe weather conditions.
  • Draftiness – Air entering or escaping your home may mean that your HVAC system has to work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature, which can lead to higher energy bills.
  • Overexposure to sunlight – Natural light can be great for a home, but too much sunlight can cause your furniture to fade and lose its luster.
