Remodeling Your Home? Don’t Overlook New Windows and Doors

IMG_1839Remodeling your house is an exciting project, with so many choices and many plans and details to keep in mind. Often, homeowners include new cabinets, appliances, flooring, paint and other upgrades and changes, but may overlook new windows and doors. If you are spending a great deal of effort to update you home and improve the appearance and functionality, don’t forget to evaluate your windows and doors. Here are some great reasons to replace windows and doors during remodeling:

Finish the Project

When you’ve spent the time and money to update many of your homes features, old windows and doors can stick out like a sore thumb, keeping your home appearing dated, drab or just “not finished.” This can easily ruin the new look you have worked so hard to achieve.

Improve Appearance and Curb Appeal

New windows and doors will always update the look in any room and instantly improve curb appeal. Choosing unique or custom doors and windows can truly modernize your home’s style or bring it back to the original design or architecture while giving you greater energy efficiency. Replacement windows and doors are an obvious upgrade that visitors notice immediately. California Window and Door offers a vast selection of styles to fit your taste and budget.

Add Light

Increasing window size or adding a window to a room adds natural light and airiness to a room, often making the room itself seem larger. It might also allow better views or a view you didn’t even know you have! If you don’t want to give up wall space, consider adding unique shapes or styles higher up on a wall to add architectural interest.

Improve Functionality

You can often improve the flow and outdoor access by changing a window to a door or adding a door in a new area. A window can become a sliding glass or French door, creating more style, adding light and adding additional access to the outside. This is also a good time to consider changing the style of your windows: replace single pane windows with new windows that open to create better cross-ventilation or other styles that open in a better way for your home.

Energy Efficiency

Replacement doors and windows can also offer better energy efficiency. Nearly half the energy lost from homes is from old windows and doors. New windows and doors provide better seals and insulation, helping to keep the indoor temperature where you want it. This may even help reduce your utility bills and save you money.


New windows and doors are more secure than older models. More durable materials and better locks and latches will give your home increased security and give you peace of mind.
