Doors and windows are very important to your home and its appearance, having compounding effects on both your home’s value, appearance and energy efficiency.
Don’t let unsightly windows and doors reflect negatively upon your home and its value. Apart from siding, your home’s windows and doors are the most viewed items on your house. In some cases, HOA’s may get involved if your home’s appearance drops below their minimum specifications of aesthetic appearance. Make sure the exterior of your home looks nice and fresh.
Old, deteriorating doors and windows not only look bad, but can increase heating and cooling costs and reduce the value of your house. Old panes and windows let air pass through and can waste a lot of money in cooling and heating your home.
When it comes to your home’s exterior doors, the sun and rain can damage them, creating cracks that become main contributors to loss of energy. Your home’s heating and air conditioning system must work much harder to cope with the loss of cold or hot air because your doors do not seal as tightly as possible.
No Rot Doors and Windows
If your windows and doors were installed 10-15 years ago, they are most likely made of wood. And that means that you might have problems with decay and rot. Today, there are much better door and window materials available. Call 1 Home Services offers completely No Rot materials for doors and windows. These include No Rot jambs and No Rot brick-mold. They last longer and carry much better warranties.
If you’ve owned your home for a rather long period of time, check your doors and windows. You may notice rot at the bottom of your doors or windows, where the materials come together. Often it is the result of lack of maintenance and caulk. But, to tell the truth, wood is a material that just can’t last too long in these elements. This is the main reason why so many companies and homeowners have started using NO ROT materials. In addition, these materials need no maintenance making them a perfect solution for most people.
Make sure you know all your options. Your contractor should be able to help you with this. You don’t want to have to replace a door or window you’ve just replaced a couple of years earlier. Make the right decisions when it comes to your home and don’t spend more than you need to. Call 1 Home Service now at 704-614-3420.
