Replacing vinyl windows

The roof is scheduled this week. The sliding door replacement and window work is scheduled for next week. The work after the hail storm has been difficult to get scheduled. Finally, however, all of the jobs are scheduled and you hope that you will be able to drive home from work soon to a house that is completely repaired. Home improvements are important investments. And while it may be tempting to go with the least expensive products and the lowest price bid, the fact of the matter is that the value of your home depends on the installation of quality products and professional workmanship.

From new vinyl windows for a home to refurbishing wood windows, finding the right contractor will help you make sure that your investment is well spent. The benefits of sliding door replacements, in fact, can make a home more energy efficient and add beauty to a property at the same time. Both residential and commercial window replacement projects come in a variety of price ranges, but the wisest property owners know that investing in the highest quality will pay off in the long run.

Energy Efficient Windows Are an Important Investment

Did you know that windows that are drafty and let air escape can increase a home’s energy bills by as much as 10% to 25%. In fact, in the average home, 38% of heat loss is through doors and windows. For instance, if a home has drafty single-pane windows, heat loss through windows may increase to 50%. Single-pane glass windows, which are present in most homes built before the mid-1990s, are hugely energy inefficient and allow cooling and heating dollars to escape out the window and allow noise to come in. Double-pane windows, on the other hand, make a home more energy efficient and sound proof.

In addition to these benefits, replacing single pain standard windows with energy efficient double pain doors and windows that meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Star program lowers energy bills by 7% to 15%, according to the website www.energystar.gov. Every time you have an opportunity to upgrade the windows, doors, and other improvements in your home, you are given the opportunity to make sure make an investment that will bring you added value in the future.

About Me

I've seen a lot of cooking, home improvement and crafting shows and, let me tell you, they make things look way easier than they are. Most people really can’t remodel their own kitchen, paint a wall mural or whip up a gourmet meal in an afternoon. I’m here to share my ideas and guidance about home and family--things I've learned through trial and error. I've already made the mistakes so you don’t have to! Just don’t ask about the kitchen cabinet refinishing project that went awry.
