Re: What to expect on a 50 year old house

The older houses that I have lived in had single pane windows that have lasted longer than the double pane windows in newer houses that I have lived in. People talk about the energy savings due to double pane windows, but in my experience that is offset by the cost of having to replace them because of seal leaks, etc. I am reminded of an economy car I had in college that got pretty good gas mileage between the engine changes it needed.
