Condo Building Window Upgrades – Don’t Just Replace, Upgrade

Condominiums are a great investment for single people living alone, young couples starting out and the elderly needing assistance. Condo ownership is a less costly alternative to single family homes from the sales price, maintenance and improvements.

If the building is more than 30 years old it’s likely that the windows have been replaced once or need to be upgraded, not just replaced, but upgraded.

Condo Window & Door Replacement Project

Most HOA CC&Rs (Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions) assign windows as the homeowner’s responsibility, the exception is when leaking windows become a structural concern, then the association typically assumes the project of replacing the windows in the entire building.

In most instances homeowners can replace their failing windows by simply following their HOA’s replacement guidelines and working with a window company that offers approved replacement windows and quality installation. Improvements made to multi-family dwellings or developments most importantly must be done in conformity with the existing windows or doors anything else would disrupt the integrity of the residential complex.
