Re: Should I be suspicious?
I don't think so. When you strip what is more than likely multiple layers of paint off you end up with gaps and leaky windows, plus the windows are probably single pane and inefficient. These problems can be remedied without replacing the windows but generally people find it easier to replace than repair. It is just going to depend on your dedication to keeping, repairing, and maintaining the existing windows.
