Windows & Doors Company in Orillia
When is it time for replacement doors and windows? There are number of tell-tale signs that it’s time to upgrade your home’s windows and doors.
Here, and not in any specific order, are the main reasons: economical and environmental, comfort, and aesthetic. Let’s take a look at these in more detail.
Economical and Environmental:
- With today’s high energy pricing, the home’s ongoing cost is number one right now. It’s one of the most popular reasons a homeowner seeks out to learn about upgrade solutions. Their aim is to cut costs and they want to both protect their home investment as well as to see any upgrades as an investment that thrives and flourishes. Also, there’s a big focus on our environment and the desire to reduce our carbon footprint. Using less or our earth’s resources will do just that. Also choosing quality products that are proven to be durable and will last over time. So, an upgrade to the home’s windows and doors definitely checks off all the boxes both economically and environmentally. Depending on the previous condition of the windows and doors, an immediate savings in monthly costs can be upwards, and sometimes more, than a 40% reduction. In addition, homeowners can further their savings by taking advantage of any government incentive programs that offer discounts for upgrades that succeed in using less natural resources. It’s a win-win for everyone.
- A home’s comfort level comes in a close second to economical. When one’s home is just not happenin’ with its’ heating and cooling levels, no one feels really good or at ease. The home is meant to be a haven from the daily grind, not an additional worry. Oftentimes, homeowners have adjusted to the “quirks” of the windows and doors in the belief that their suffering is a means to save money, when actually the opposite is true. When a proper comfort level is brought back to a home, everyone will feel much more at ease and the home can be enjoyed properly year-round. There could also be a health factor that’s removed, especially if the home has suffered from water issues. In earlier times gone by, it was a common thought that drafts were something to avoid in order to be healthy. It has been proven that sitting directly in drafty areas definitely causes muscle aches and pains.
- If windows are the “eyes” of the home and they’re looking super-tired, then that can reflect on both the occupants sense of home pride as well as the home’s value. A full window and door upgrade will create a dramatic new look to the home. The newness and streamlined look will definitely turn heads. In fact, after the work is done, prepare to receive compliments from both your guests and neighbours.
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms with your windows and doors, then it’s time for that upgrade.
- Drafty areas in and around the door and window areas.
- Inoperable or faulty mechanics that stop you from using the windows or doors with ease.
- Any type of damage, such as water stains, flaws in the windowpane, condensation, fogging, just to name a few. Or any damage surrounding the window or door areas.
- Window treatment discolouration and fading. This happens with the older single-pane windows that do not have UV protection.
- Zero to poor soundproofing. When there’s no airtight seal, then in addition to the elements entering the home so does excessive sound.
- The general look of you’re home’s exterior is in need of an overdue makeover.
