Windows and Doors That are a Perfect Fit for Your Home
As a homeowner, you may have made improvements to your house from painting to major kitchen or bath renovations, hoping to increase its value. But have you replaced the two things—windows or doors that will not only enhance the curb appeal of your home, but improve the climate inside and out, reduce your utility bills, and increase its value?
Why Replace Your Windows?
Even without any major renovations if your windows are more than 25 years old you should consider replacing them. In just that period of time technology has changed dramatically. Windows today are a minimum of 50% more energy efficient than pre-1990’s windows and that translates into a more comfortable environment in your home.
And, it’s not just the style or materials with which your new windows are constructed, but the type of glass that is in them. In California, single pane glass is not allowed; all windows are at least two pane glass and sometimes three panes thick. The amount of noise that seeps through the glass is measured on a Sound Transmission Coefficient (STC) with double pane windows starting at 27 to 28 STC and going upward to 40 STC or higher, depending on the amount of sound proofing you need or want.
Finding a Door that Meets Your Needs
Doors may last a little longer than windows but often receive more wear and tear. Wood doors tend to be higher maintenance as they can warp or need repainting, especially those without an overhang or porch protecting them from the elements. However, wood doors are still a common choice for 3-D dimensionality and natural beauty. Fiberglass doors on the other hand, are great for homeowners who prefer low maintenance, as they are resistant to changes in the weather and do not require painting. With the variety of styles and colors available in wood and fiber doors today you can find the right door to fit your home both stylistically and functionally.
Let our technicians help you determine the best door for your home. For Bel-Air Quality at Van Nuys prices, call us today.
What to Expect from Our First Sales Call
