Don’t Throw Money Out The Window!
Insulation isn’t the only way to improve your home’s energy efficiency. Older models of windows and doors can be the source of air leaks that prove costly over time. Often, they aren’t up to date in terms of energy performance, which causes the home’s energy efficiency to suffer. That means you’re probably not as comfortable as you could be and you’re wasting energy and money.
Windows and exterior doors are part the barrier of building materials that separates interior living space from exterior space, also known as a building’s “envelope.” But they’re also an important part of your home’s appearance. While you may not see the benefit of energy-saving improvements like insulation and air sealing, you and all of your neighbors will certainly enjoy the beauty of new exterior doors and replacement windows. Those hidden benefits – the ones you see on your utility bill – add to the pleasure you’ll receive from your upgrades.
After your free home energy audit, Sunlight Contractors will also provide a free estimate for replacing wasteful, out-moded windows and doors.
NEW WINDOWS FOR IMPROVED ENERGY-EFFICIENCY AND APPEARANCE
If you decide to replace your old windows with new, energy efficient models, a licensed contractor will measure the size of your existing windows. This is an important step because the new replacement units are designed to fit snugly inside the existing jambs after the old sash has been removed to prevent further air leakage.
With all-vinyl construction for improved energy performance, replacement windows also provide excellent durability and resistance to the elements. Although vinyl and fiberglass replacement windows never require painting, they can be painted to add vivid new colors to your quaint southern Louisiana home.
DURABLE NEW EXTERIOR DOORS MAINTAIN TRADITIONAL ELEGANCE
Like replacement windows, newer model exterior doors have improved significantly over the decades. These days, old-fashioned solid wood exterior doors are often replaced by steel, vinyl, or fiberglass doors filled with foam insulation. The best of these exterior doors offer the same elegance as traditional doors while providing improved energy efficiency, excellent dimensional stability (resistance to warping and cracking), and weather resistance.
Pre-hung doors are usually the best choice for new entryways. These doors come installed in their frames, with the threshold, weatherstripping, and exterior trim attached. This ensures that the door fits neatly into the opening provided with no cracks or gaps.
Entry doors come in a variety of beautiful styles and colors. Some feature side lights that increase the size of the door’s rough opening, allowing additional light and views. Take your time and get to know all the unique styles of exterior doors so that you can find the perfect welcome to your Louisiana home!
