When is the Best Time to Upgrade Storm Windows?

Although storm windows are designed to keep you safe from inclement weather, their efficiency deteriorates over time. Because of this, many homeowners are starting to take down their storm windows and replace them with screens or better window options.

If your home is equipped with storm windows, you may want to consider switching to another window style. However, depending on the condition of your storm windows, the change doesn’t have to be immediate. To help you determine the best time to upgrade your storm windows, here are a few things you should consider:

The Current State of Your Storm Windows
