The sun is shinning, the birds are chirping, and we are so excited for spring! It’s a wonderful time of year to get the house cleaned up, the yard back in order, and to get ready for any summer projects you’d like to tackle. The best way to ensure you achieve your summer goals is to plan ahead and make a list of goals. Are there items that need to be ordered? Do you need to hire a contractor? What do you need to budget? There are so many things to start considering today to ensure you are prepared for your summer renovation plans and accomplish those goals.
A common summer project is upgrading your windows and doors. There are many reasons to upgrade, whether it be simply for cosmetic purposes or because they aren’t providing the energy efficiency you want. Whatever the reason, Euroclad has your back to help you get the job done!
Why Are you Upgrading?
One of the many great reasons to upgrade your windows is to do your part to go green and save on energy. Upgrading your homes windows and doors is a great way to do that! They make up a huge portion of the building envelope of your home, so they are major contributors to heat losses and gains. Upgrading to more energy efficient windows will lower your energy use and save you money. Plus, if you plan correctly you can collect rebates from BC Hydro!
If you are looking to upgrade your windows and doors simply for cosmetics, we support that decision entirely. Tired of your front door? Not a fan of your window colour? Bored of your standard patio door? If there isn’t a certain item you want to upgrade, or maybe have a tight budget, we suggest focusing on one or two featured items.
So What Can You Feature?
First, your entry door! It’s the first thing that you and your guests see when they enter your home – making it the perfect feature to upgrade. Entry doors can be so diverse and unique, and the options are pretty much limitless!
Second, focus on an item that is very regularly used. Nobody wants to struggle when they go out to their patio or deck, so upgrading an item you use regularly will feel extremely rewarding.
Third, you can try adding a custom feature, like our Server-Awning Window or Server-Folding Window. Adding something special or different can really improve an area and make your house stand out from the rest.
