Very happy with my windows. I used this company to install replacement windows in my home in early December. I worked with Steve. He was very clear about pricing and what would be involved in the window installation process. All the new windows were installed in two days. Very good prices and a good experience. I would recommend this company.
You look at your home and the exterior seems tired, or shopworn and you have come to the decision it is time to do something about it. Looking at the front of the house you determine that a full-scale facelift for the front is what is in order to refresh your home and provide some value for the investment. Many self-help articles and videos extoll the virtues of home improvements as a way to maximize the investment that is your home. There are other reasons of course to make the necessary changes and they fall along financial lines, and social responsibility to name but two. But the most pressing need for a homeowner is to have a home they can be proud of and that requires time and input. One of the best ways to update the home is through a home renovation project hat will provide a lasting impact on the look of the house and will last for a great deal of time based on the investment.
A quick way to update the home’s profile and to restore the lustre and character that may have faded from your home is with a new vinyl front door for your home. Doors come in all shapes and sizes and are made from a multitude of materials that profess to be the next big thing, but often they fall off of their ‘hinges.’ The newest door on the market is made of vinyl, and based on testing it is the single biggest revolution in the door industry.
At AM Window & Door Solutions we have seen the future and we want to share the vision of what a new replacement door will be for your home that has advantages for a homeowner. With the help of our friends at Vinylbilt Windows and Doors, we can show you a vinyl front, side or back door that will help transform your home into an energy-efficient behemoth and the costs are comparable to other products on the market.
Like the name indicates, the door is made of vinyl – the exterior and interior sides of the door and who would have thought that pipe material would make its’ way to the front of our homes. Vinyl is made up of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and that material developed to replace metal pipes for all things water in our homes. It was developed as a cost-cutting alternative to metal pipes and the flexibility that it provided for installation and lifespan made it a favourite among plumbers – for repair and replacement work -and home builders alike.
Vinyl doors, more than a viable alternative
When you compare vinyl doors to other doors made of different materials, stark differences manifest themselves that demonstrate that vinyl doors are superior products whose time has come.
Made up if high-quality PVC, vinyl doors are made up with some metal products – looks and hardware for installation, but by and large the main pieces of the door are vinyl.
As advances have been made in colour and design for vinyl doors, they can command many different colours rather than the old white or beige colours that were the forerunner for vinyl doors.
In the vinyl doors industry, there is a saying: Vinyl is final. What that means is vinyl doors are virtually maintenance free as they hold their colour, are an easy surface to clean and are impervious to the elements, unlike other products available.
When you look at the comparison for insulation between vinyl doors and the other products available, the first thing that you may notice is that vinyl doors are poor conductors of temperature. That is a good thing because vinyl doors don’t radiate cold air in the winter or allow heat infiltration in the summer. This reduces the burden placed on your furnace and air conditioner for heating and cooling and reduces your costs as a result. Another benefit of this situation is the reduction of a home’s carbon footprint because your home will expel less in the way of greenhouse gases through a reduction in fossil fuel use and that is an environmental blessing.
The appearance of a vinyl door for a home is certainly something that will enhance a home’s profile. You can mix and match different designs to get the door just the way you want it to suit your home’s character and charm.
When you update your doors with vinyl door products, the improvement will trigger a financial gain that goes along with the conservation of energy. The improved look that your investment has purchased will increase the equity in your home and the resale value will be higher than a home with different door products. The investment is like a stock dividend, the money you save in energy costs multiplies monthly, and the improved look increases the resale value by reducing investments that the new owner would have made to update the doors to energy-efficient doors.
In comparison to wood doors – that need maintenance regularly to hold their colour, or metal doors that see their colour flake and chip – it only makes sense to purchase vinyl doors for your home.
When you do decide vinyl doors are the thing for your home, we can show the Astoria collection by Vinylbilt. The doors are highly rated for energy efficiency by Energy Star, meet building code requirements, need minimal maintenance nd are extremely durable.
The Astoria series comes in three options: the Value Series, the Upscale Metro Series and the Upscale Suburbia Series. Each series has options available like colour choices and finish choices, and they are extremely secure. All the doors are don’t carry sound like other products in the market, that allows to close out the outside world for peace and quiet.
