Bored with Your Home’s Feel? Consider Replacing Those Windows June 27, 2016 You’ve been living in the same house for more than 15 years. You’ve done a lot of work on it through the years and it is yours; it reflects your personality and it’s a place where you feel comfortable. In fact, you’ll spend more time in your house than any other place in the world throughout your lifetime. It should be comfortable. However, that doesn’t mean you might not get bored with the layout, some furniture, or other aspects of your home. If you become a bit bored or weary with regard to your home, you may want to consider replacing the windows if they haven’t been replaced in at least 10 or 15 years. The life expectancy of windows in a home is between 10 and 15 years, on average. Lower quality and cheaper windows might not last that long. By ‘last that long,’ that doesn’t mean they’re going to fall apart and break all of a sudden. It means their energy efficiency would diminish, it will become harder to open and close them, the glass can become etched and look pitted, and even the frame can take on a worn-out appearance. When you decide on replacement windows for your home, you have an opportunity to not only increase the value of your home by choosing quality windows, but you also have an opportunity to completely change the look and layout of every single room in your home. For example, in your master bedroom you may have two large, oversized double hung windows that look out onto the backyard and some rolling landscape. Why not consider a bay or bow window instead? Not only will this provide the feel of a larger room, but it will capitalize on the view you could be enjoying as opposed to the frame of that double hung window. Sit down and speak with an experienced window and door expert at Platinum Windows and Doors and see what options are available that can help you completely transform the look and feel of any or all rooms in your home. You won’t be bored much longer.
