Whether you live in Clearwater, St. Pete or Tampa, you may need to replace your windows.
Why replace Windows & Doors?
You look or walk through them every single day. But how often do you really think about the impact your home’s doors and windows have on its value, beauty and livability? Home improvement experts agree that updating your windows and doors can help you save on energy bills, improve the look and infrastructure of your home and add long-lasting value. Replacing your windows can mean making many decisions: Is it time to replace? And if so,
how do you go about choosing the best replacement windows?
On top of testing your patience, windows and doors that stick aren’t giving you the optimum benefits in terms of convenience and efficiency. Performance is also tied to safety-if doors are windows are not opening properly they can be a safety hazard.
Check for drafts around doors and windows by moving a lit candle slowly around the edges. If the flame flickers, you have a draft — one of the biggest drains on the energy efficiency of your home. Drafts add up to real dollars on your heating and cooling bills, so this is, for many people, the impetus to replace their windows or doors.
Older windows and doors require maintenance — scraping, painting and caulking. Newer windows and doors feature low maintenance cladding, a protective exterior covering that requires minimal maintenance. Many newer windows also make cleaning easy with a convenient tilt feature that allows you to wash them from inside your house.
Curb appeal is vital if you’re selling your house and a satisfying lifestyle enhancement if you plan to stay in your home for years to come. Updated windows and doors not only improve energy efficiency and lower maintenance costs, they make your house look more appealing as well.
