Are Windows and Doors That Important?
Don’t skimp when purchasing windows and doors for your home. Here are some reasons why choosing the right windows and doors is crucial when building a new home or renovating an existing.
1. Energy Efficiency: Modern day windows are not only beautiful but are designed to keep the cold air out and the warm air in. Siting the house for solar gain as well properly installing the windows and doors can save you money on energy costs – which is important to us here in New England!
2. Aesthetics: Choosing the right windows and doors for your home can be overwhelming. The styles, brands, colors, and hardware options are vast, but one thing to remember is that your home should be an extension of you. Your front door (and windows) are the first thing guests see when they arrive, so choosing something that looks great not only increases the value of your home, but generates a warm welcoming.
3. Safety & Security: New windows and doors will keep your home secure for years to come, but they will also keep your home safe when it comes to coastal storms. Being prepared for the unpredictability of Rhode Island weather will give you peace of mind.
4. Home Value: See above! The first three things we listed when it comes to new windows and doors will most certainly increase the value of your home. Budget for good windows and doors; we promise it makes all the difference both for your wallet and your homes
