What’s Your Window’s Story?

Every day we work with customers of all kinds looking to replace their windows that are new and energy efficient. Whether it’s a historic home that needs new windows or a contemporary home that is being completely remodeled, we love the variety of windows that are out there and enjoy what part the windows play in the home’s story.  Your windows have a story. Here’s how:

Windows that love to maximize light:
Some windows are placed strategically to maximize the outside view and the daylight that enters a space. Whether it’s a big picture window in the front living room of a home, or a small window in a bedroom that needs more sunlight, windows are all about bringing the outside in.

Windows that allow ventilation:
Whether it’s a window in a bathroom or a kitchen, we can find the right window that provides the ventilation you need for the space. There are windows that slide from up to down or side to side, in addition to those that turn in or out.

Windows that mute sound:
New windows will keep the inside of your home quieter than you ever dreamed! We have a variety of window options that will help keep pounding rain and wind at bay, in addition to keeping outside noisy traffic quieter, too! Not to mention, new windows are insulated well and provide the thermal control that you need to keep the temperature in your home the way you want it.

Windows that need to meet code:
Maybe you’re updating your basement and putting an egress window is a necessary addition. We understand the variety of codes and what complexities come with them, so if you have a window that needs to meet a specific code requirement, we can help!

The windows in your home tell a story and play a big role in your overall comfort!   Springtime and early summer are great times to consider getting your windows replaced with new, energy efficient options from Milgard or Simonton. Our experienced team of window installation professionals can help get your windows replaced quickly and efficiently, so you can get back to enjoying the spring weather! New, energy efficient windows not only add curb appeal to your home, but they will keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Ready to get your window installation project started?

How to Increase Your Home’s Resale Value

As a homeowner, you’re likely looking for ways to make your home a better, more comfortable place to live. Home improvements or home renovations are known to increase the value of your home and if you do it right, you can increase the resale value when you go to put your home on the market. There are several things that can update your home that bring great returns. Here are some ideas on how to increase your home’s resale value.

#1: Exterior updates:
When was the last time the siding on your home got a thorough look? Maybe it never has and it’s starting to look beat up and worn out. Siding that is old could have cracks in it that could allow for mold or dry rot build up. This is not only a dangerous thing to have in your home, but when you go to sell the house, a home inspector will note it and a potential buyer may be concerned. Quality siding will be durable and keep your home protected from various weather elements, no matter what the season. Our team at Lifetime Windows & Doors works with customers in replacing exterior siding and we’re proud to carry outstanding products from James Hardie Siding. New siding is energy efficient and can help with heating and cooling bills over time because of its great insulating capability.

#2: Updated doors:
New doors in your home are a wonderful way to increase value and make the home look updated – especially your front door. A new front door adds instant curb appeal, as it’s one of the first things people will notice when they see your home. We have hundreds of door options and can do custom order doors with a variety of glass or window options. Whether it’s an aluminum door, wood door, or a vinyl door, we’re proud to carry top quality doors from many different brands such as Therma Tru, Buffelen, Simonton, Masonite, Milgard, Codel Entry Systems, and Simpson!

#3: Replacement windows:
Your windows are a huge part of your house and window replacement can add huge value to it! Replacement windows will help reduce your energy bill, will keep you comfortable, and they can also assist in noise reduction. Energy efficient windows will keep your heating & cooling system from working extra hard, as there will be no leaked air in or out. No matter what your home’s style is, we carries a variety of window styles and brands that will work with your budget and design preference.
