Window and door replacements should not be overlooked to revamp the look of your property.
As property owners, you can spend a lot of time and money redecorating and buying new furnishings in an effort to update the look of your home.
Then, there’s the money you spend on heating and air conditioning units to ensure your property is comfortable all year round.
Outdated, poorly fitted or damaged windows and doors could sabotage any cost savings you may make from energy efficient units, with drafts that bring in the cold in winter and gaps to let in the heat in summer.
Not only that, if you have a stylish interior the look could be negated by old and worn windows and doors fitted in the facade.
Damaged or warped frames and fittings
If you find you have issues either opening or closing your windows and doors it be the results of warped frames.
Over time, especially with newer homes, properties are susceptible to movement, this isn’t a major concern as it’s part of the building process.
However, movement combined with the hot Australian weather can soften and eventually warp the window and door frames.
Wood Framed Windows and Doors
Due to changeable seasons and harsh weather conditions, timber-framed windows and doors require annual maintenance and treatment, without it they can quickly become rotten and in some cases quite dangerous.
If you have wood-framed units, consider window and door replacements made from PVC or aluminium for greater flexibility and efficiency.
Poorly sealed or broken windows
You spend time and money heating and cooling your property, but for greatest efficiency your property should be sealed to avoid heating and cooling loss.
If a window or door has suffered a seal break or deterioration, or if a window unit is broken, your heating or air conditioning unit will have to work harder.
This can result in increased utility bills of about 25% each quarter.
Historic buildings and aesthetic makeovers.
Making an investment in new windows and doors could pay off if you are considering selling your property.
An aesthetic makeover along with the cost-saving green efficiency of new units have been proven as key selling points for new homebuyers.
