Windows and Doors Improve Your Home’s Appeal and Can Save You Money
One of the best ways to transform the appearance of your home is by replacing your windows and doors. Not only do new windows and doors improve the appearance of your home, but they also can provide better insulation for your home. Most original windows in homes were made from single pane glass with wooden frames, which are prone to rotting and energy transfer. Older doors can be drafty and become warped, allowing heat or air to escape.
With decades of experience in window and door installation for the Philadelphia region, we are experts in identifying the benefits of replacing your windows and doors. If you are considering replacement, here are some more reasons to consider an upgrade:
Aesthetics: Home styles change over time so the windows and doors that were stylish 10-20 years ago appear outdated. Enhance your home’s curb appeal with new windows and doors.
Maintenance: Old windows and doors are most likely constructed from wood, which requires regular maintenance. Painting, staining, and caulking needs to be done to wooden windows and doors to ensure they last. Newer windows and doors eliminate these maintenance tasks.
Safety: Windows and doors can become stuck over time due to warping and external elements, and opening them can cause injury. Cleaning windows can also be hazardous if a ladder is needed. Modern day windows have tilting panes which allow you to clean the windows without stepping foot on a ladder—or outside!
Energy savings: Windows were traditionally made from single-pane glass in wooden frames. Single-pane glass and wood provides little insulation for your home, so air escapes easily. Wooden doors become misshapen over time and allow pockets of air to escape around the edges. This transfer of air from inside the home to the outside, and vice versa, is what costs you extra money on your energy bills. Switching to double-pane composite windows and metal/fiberglass doors will better insulate your home and save you money on your heating and cooling bills.
