Upgrading your home comes with a lot of questions. Should you split the projects up? Are there some that are better to do together? When it comes to installing windows and doors, that’s usually the case. There are several benefits that come from replacing doors and windows at the same time. Unless you are replacing really old windows and already have newer doors or vice versa, here are some reasons to consider replacing them together.
Your Home Will Look Fresh and New
When you replace your doors and windows at the same time, you will be able to ensure that your home looks consistent and that one part or another isn’t mismatched or outdated. Replacement doors and windows can be customized in colors and styles, too, allowing you to breathe new life into your curb appeal by modernizing doors and windows and bringing them into the 21st century.
Improved Energy Efficiency
If you replace your doors with energy-efficient models but your windows are 20 years old, you’re not going to be improving your energy usage as much as you might like. Newer windows and doors will give you increased efficiency throughout the home. The house will stay more temperate and you won’t have to deal with heat loss (or cold air loss in the summer) because all the windows and doors are new and made with the best available materials.
In many cases, you can get a discount when you buy multiple doors and/or windows, or have them all replaced at the same time. Companies often have specials and offer on their windows and doors that include increasing discounts for multiples. Be sure to ask what kind of deals you can get to upgrade your doors and windows at the same time. In most cases, you’ll find that companies are more willing to negotiate deals when you are ready to replace everything at once. Plus, it will save you paying the labor costs twice, which you’d have to do if they were installed separately.
Modern doors and windows have premium security features when compared to older styles. Even modern window locks are more secure and present a larger deterrent to thieves who might have otherwise easily opened your old sliding windows that didn’t have secure locks. You can even add smart features, like smart locks and video doorbell monitoring, to enhance your home’s security. For more information contact Rusco Windows and Doors today.
