How to Stay Comfortable While Working from Home

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way people go about their daily lives. It’s also changed work environments around the country. Many offices have shut down and told their employees that working from home is the new norm. If you are working from home, you’ll want to be as comfortable as possible. Our team at Lifetime Windows and Doors can help. Here’s how.

#1: We can update your space.
Did you know that your windows play a key role in keeping your home’s heating and cooling evenly distributed? Old, energy inefficient windows can leak outside air in. That means your heat during the fall and winter months can make its way outside and cold outside air could create cold spots in your home. That means your heating and cooling system must work harder to keep the temperatures evenly distributed. Because of that, your utility bills will likely increase. So, consider window replacement for your home! We have a variety of options that will fit your home’s unique style and most importantly, your budget.

#2: Replace your doors.
Your exterior doors are also an important part of creating a comfortable home and work environment. We carry a variety of brands including Simonton, ThermaTru, Simpson! These doors are affordably priced and can even be ordered custom. Our team of installation specialists can take a look at your current doors and make recommendations for replacement based on your style preferences and budget guidelines.

Home renovations like these will not only make the space your beautiful and comfortable, but they can help increase your home’s value! That means when it comes time to sell it, you will have a greater return. The money you spend now is well worth it, because it will create an opportunity for a easier, smoother home sale later down the road.

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. We’re happy to provide free quotes on replacing your old windows.
