Take a look at a window from 20 or 30 years ago and compare it to a window today. Even if they look similar, there are likely to be advanced features in the modern window that wasn’t as available before. For instance, once upon a time, wood window frames were the popular option. Today, you’ll find more vinyl or fiberglass window frames. Single-pane windows used to be the only option that you could find. Now, double and even triple-pane windows are available. Windows today are built with energy efficiency, noise reduction, and durability in mind.
So if your window is more than 30 years old, it’s a certainty that you’re missing out on some of the latest, most exciting advances in window construction. It’s also more likely that your once reliable windows are becoming worn down.
