3 Lasting Home Improvements

Thursday, August 24th, 2017

When you invest in high-quality, durable improvements to your home, you and your family enjoy the benefits for years to come. Lasting home improvements like new windows, wooden flooring or upgrading your home’s exterior enhance the appearance and functionality of your living space and often add to the value of a house.

Wooden Floors

Polished hardwood floors lend a timeless appeal to home interiors and unlike carpet, they don’t trap dust. Real wood floors that are polished regularly and well cared for can last longer than 100 years. When the surface of a wooden floor begins to look dull or rough, it’s a relatively simple matter to sand it down and refinish it, giving the floor another lease on life. Avoid laminate or engineered wooden flooring if you want to make a real long-term investment in your home.

Replacement Windows

New windows increase the energy efficiency of your home, help block UV rays that fade your carpets and furniture, and give your house a face-lift. Infinity by Marvin fiberglass windows offer the best of all worlds. They don’t develop rust spots or pits like aluminum frames or warp in the sun like vinyl, and although they provide the classic look of wood, they don’t rot, absorb moisture or weather. Years after installation, Infinity from Marvin fiberglass windows look as good as new. Additionally, they come with a lifetime guarantee that passes to the new owners should you decide to sell your house.

New Siding

New brick or stone siding on your home spruces up an old, tired exterior and lasts a lifetime. Like most masonry projects, fitting or building new siding on your house is one of the most lasting home improvements you can make and completely revamps the look of your home, adding curb appeal and value. Furthermore, repainting your home’s exterior every few years becomes a thing of the past.

Increasing the value of your home is only one benefit of lasting home improvements. You and your family can also enjoy the enhanced living environment for years to come. Contact North Georgia Replacement Windows for expert advice on upgrading the windows in your home.

Remodeling Your Home? Don’t Forget the New Doors and Windows

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Remodeled Window Door

Remodeling your home is one of the most gratifying experiences you’ll ever undertake, if it’s done correctly.  To be able to transform your home into a new home and not have to bother with actually moving is rewarding.  On top of that, the fact that you helped design your home to tailor it to your needs and wants makes a remodel even better.  Commonly, though, people will invest thousands of dollars to reconfigure their home but forget to address certain details.  Windows and doors, for example, are both defining characteristics of a home and shouldn’t be done as an afterthought.  Below are three common home improvement projects where a new door or window will enhance the beauty and functionality of the room.

Kitchen Remodel

A kitchen remodel is perhaps the most desirable project there is.  The kitchen is an area of the house where meals are cooked, family and friends convene and many memories are made.  Because of all that the average kitchen remodel costs roughly $20,000, since expense is a little more flexible in such an important space.  While a stainless steel fridge and a matching oven and dishwasher are necessary and the granite countertops and farmhouse sink are vital, don’t forget about your windows. Your current windows were built for your old kitchen; your new one deserves something fitting of the new space.   A garden window or a casement window are both great windows for both letting the light in and providing a purpose beyond adding to the appeal of the room.

Garden Window

Master Suite

Where you sleep at night can have a profound effect on your daily life.  As a result it should be no surprise that a new master suite is on the wish list of many homeowners.   Since you are remodeling your room, it’s likely your home was built in a different era.  The age of your home alone is a great reason to replace the windows in your master suite, after all, new windows will be more energy efficient than your past windows.  Like the windows in the kitchen, not only can they add to the architecture of the room, but also give the room an ambiance that you’d expect from a high-end hotel.   A bay window is not only the perfect choice to allow more light but it also adds to the space in your room and gives you a bigger master suite.

Bedroom to Office

As the kids get older and start to move out, you will likely find a lot of unnecessary space in your home.  It’s the perfect time to reconfigure your space and turn a recently turned spare bedroom into an office.  This is one of the simpler home remodeling projects you’ll undertake.  A desk and shelving in place of a bed and dresser is all you technically need, but who wants to work in a dark space that originally had windows put in for a room to be slept in?  An office requires sunshine and perhaps even a better entrance than the old bedroom door your child scuffed and slammed over the past 18 years.    An awning window is all you would need to transform your new office from run-of-the-mill to awe-inspiring.

Don’t settle for a great space but underwhelming  details.  Let the light shine through, let the cool spring or autumn air in and when people enter the space, have them do it through an entrance befitting of the room.

Remodel Your Basement with Hopper Windows

Friday, February 6th, 2015

A common difficulty encountered when remodeling a basement is finding a source of sufficient natural lighting.
