No home windows last forever – but if they’re well-made and well-installed, they can last for a very long time. Familiarizing yourself with the factors that play a role in how long your windows will last can help you choose windows that you’ll love for many years to come.
#1. Window Quality
The quality of your windows makes a big difference in their service life/longevity. One of the things you can do to ensure that your windows are high-quality is to buy windows from a dealer/installer with a great reputation.
Renewal by Andersen of Long Island is known for selling quality windows that last for decades. In fact, Renewal by Andersen has so much confidence in their products that they offer one of the best warranties in the business on both product AND installation.

#2. Window Maintenance
How much maintenance windows need also plays a role in how long they last. Windows that need a lot of maintenance will deteriorate faster if they don’t get the proper maintenance or care from the homeowner.
If your windows are high maintenance – maybe because they’re made of wood – they could be in need of maintenance right now. Wooden windows need to be painted or sealed against weather and moisture regularly. They should be inspected periodically (at least annually) for signs of rot, and if there is any rot found, it should be repaired.
Renewal by Andersen window frames are made from a high tech composite Fibrex material. Fibrex looks like wood, but it’s actually a wood composite that withstands exposure to moisture without the need for painting or sealing. And it’s stronger and more stable than low-cost vinyl.
#3. Window Energy Efficiency
Windows that have poor efficiency need to be replaced because they can detract from your quality of life at home. Inefficient windows lead to hot spots, drafts and can put a lot of burden on your home’s heating and air conditioning systems, leading to breakdowns and early replacement.
When you buy new windows for your home, the more efficient they are, the happier you’ll be with their performance in your home. Be sure to buy windows that are as energy efficient as possible.
#4. Window Durability
Some windows just deteriorate quickly. For example, fogging in between dual panes of glass in a cheap insulated window is a common problem that homeowners experience when the seal around the glass deteriorates. Windows that are built to last have fewer problems of this nature, and need fewer repairs over time. Renewal by Andersen windows are proven to last a long time, which is why they carry a Transferable Lifetime Limited Warranty covering parts, labor and original installation services.
