Doors and windows are commonly referred to as the “eyes of your home”, which is why it is important that they not be neglected. The doors and windows are where all of the natural light comes in, or is obstructed. One of the first things that people notice when visiting your home for the very first time is how the outside appears aesthetically, which includes windows, shutters and how the house is painted. After that, they zero in on the front door because that is the entrance into the home. Having structurally sound doors and windows is important for the following reasons:
- Age – When doors get old, they neglect to do many things that they once did when they were freshly put on their hinges. Old doors tend to squeak or make noise, and have a tendency to become difficult to close. Especially in really cold winters, doors tend to swell, which makes them difficult to close. Aging doors also let all of the heat from your home out in the winter and all of the cool air out in the summer. Your utility bill suffers as a result because you’re essentially just letting money slip through the cracks of your old doors. Resealing old doors corrects this problem quickly and efficiently.
- Natural Lighting – Artificial lighting can be incredibly costly, but natural light is totally free. Having the windows redone in your home adds completely natural light into the rooms, which improves ambiance, and is also more inviting.
- Visual Aestheticism – Doors and windows should tie your home together and add a bit of character and style to the embodiment of your home.
