The frequency of window replacement ultimately depends on the quality of the windows fitted and how you have maintained them. Sometimes, window replacement can also be affected by the stress the weather causes on a property.

For example, if your home is near a cliff face it would be prone to high winds and heavy rain, whilst properties in sheltered areas may be exposed to less harsh conditions and windows would be more protected from weathering and erosion.

In general, though professional window companies (including us at Windows and Doors UK!) agree that new, quality windows should last between 15- 20 years and cause you no problems. Most window companies indeed supply a lifetime warranty of 20-25 years.


Despite the fact that most windows are expected to last between 20-25 years, does not mean that you can simply opt for any kind of window and have no problems.

It is essential to buy your windows from a reputable window company and abide by the maintenance guidelines. That way, you will ensure your windows are long-lasting and will be avoiding problems such as leaking, dampness, mould and more…

How do you know when it is time to replace your windows?

  • Windows may leak water into the home
  • There will be problems with the fixtures and fittings
  • There may be mould or mildew around the edges
  • UPVC windows may discolour
  • Wooden windows will show signs of deterioration
