Lots of people are lucky enough to work at home today. Perhaps you can’t, but your spouse does. That means they are the person who knows your house well since they spend so much time in it. If they start saying that you need replacement windows in Las Vegas, NV, they might have a point. Here are a few things they might say about your current windows that will lead you to believe you really do need new windows.
The Drafts In This Room Are Awful
Your spouse spends a lot of time in a certain room of the house getting their work done while you are in the office. Perhaps it’s a home office, a living room, or even the kitchen. Whatever room they are talking about, they spend a lot of time there throughout the day so they are going to notice drafts a lot more than you would since you aren’t there. When they talk about the drafts, check that room and others. If the drafts are pretty consistent, you might want to check into getting replacements. You can see if there are things you can do to repair the windows, but if not, new ones might be better.
This Window Just Won’t Open
It’s nice to have fresh air coming through the office (even a home office!) on a nice day and if your spouse tells you that the window in their home office just won’t open, it’s a sign. Windows can warp and that makes them impossible to open. Or, perhaps they got painted shut at one point or another. Either way, if the window won’t open, that’s not a good thing for safety. You need that emergency exit, just in case. Check the other windows in the house and if there are lots that have that issue, you may want to get replacements.
There’s Just Not Enough Natural Light In Here
Again, your spouse is the one at home during the high sun hours of the day. If they open the curtains and still can’t get in the natural light they want, it might be an issue with older windows. Older windows can fog over or perhaps they just aren’t large enough to let in enough light. When you get new windows, the new glass will work perfectly and bring in lots of light. Plus, you can make changes to size and layout to let in even more, if you want.
Of course, you want to listen to your spouse no matter what they are talking about. But if they work at home and you don’t, their opinion on the windows in the home might have more merit since they are around them more.
