Clean windows can greatly impact the comfort of a home. Nothing’s worse than the sun illuminating dirt, smears, scratches, and fingerprints on neglected windows. When’s the last time you cleaned your windows? Don’t worry about it; with these simple cleaning tips, your future is bright and so are your windows.
Do It Yourself – You’ve heard people say that replacing windows is easy and there is no need to hire a contractor. Do not listen to this advice. Unless you have trained experience in window replacement do not attempt your own do-it-yourself replacement job. Windows are only as good as their installment. If you do not properly seal your windows you could end up with moisture and water damage. You’ll also face drafts, leakage and difficultly opening and closing your window if you don’t install it correctly. Pay the professionals for what they’ve been trained to do.
Nothing but Vinyl – If you’re under the impression that vinyl is your only replacement option, you’re surely mistaken. Even though vinyl is the most popular material for new windows, you always have the freedom to install energy efficient wood replacements as well as fiberglass replacements. Fiberglass is a newer material and is a bit pricier; however, it features the thermal properties of wood while being stronger and more durable than vinyl.
Major Construction – Replacement of your windows does not mean reconstruction of existing walls. Unless you are replacing a standard window with a large, landscaped style one, the integrity of your home will not be disrupted. Most window replacement jobs are completed within two or three days.
If you have a question about window replacement make sure you go to the source. Window replacement rumors can lead you astray.
