Although they often go unnoticed, windows and doors are vital parts of all buildings.
Whether the family home or the office block, they are quite complicated interfaces between the inside and outside worlds.
Just because they have been in place for decades doesn’t mean they should be taken for granted.
Whether you are staying put or thinking of selling, you should take a good look at window and door replacement.
With the right help, these can both have huge benefits.
Old To New
It is quite often very easy to replace old with new. Window frames are fitted into standard sizes and shapes.
If you’ve had a leaking hinge for years but didn’t want to alter the look of your property, fear not.
Especially here on the Gold Coast, wooden window and door frames suffer over time.
There are materials and designs available today which give you the option of making changes without it being obvious.
If you want to keep the look of your home or business, you can. But you can also make it cheaper to run and nicer to live and or work in.
On the other hand, you might decide to go with a brand new look. You might want to open up a whole wall area to let more light in.
Or you might have an idea that your property would be worth more if it had bigger windows.
These kinds of decisions are made every day.
There is no shame in wanting to move forwards, but it doesn’t have to mean ruining a good looking property.
As experienced window and door replacement specialists on the Gold Coast, we know just how good your options are.
Depending on your budget, you can have a huge effect on your home with minimal disruption and expense.
Retrofitting is a very popular way of updating homes with modern windows.
It is not always possible, but is the easiest and most cost effective way of fitting new windows and doors.
With this method of replacement, your new windows are fitted into their existing casings.
Brick to brick replacement means taking your entire window casing out and replacing it.
This is more time consuming than retrofitting and causes more disruption during the job. It is also more expensive.
While retrofitting is cheaper in the short term, in the long term you may lose money through higher energy bills.
Ageing casings are inefficient and let warmth out. Brick to brick replacement is the most energy and cost efficient option in the long term.
