Benefits of new Windows

When you buy a new house, it may be easy to forsake the windows. They are just as easy to walk by as the walls, rooms and doorways. 

This can be because of how boring they may look. Many new home buyers look for the aesthetics, above all.  You want to proud of your home and the easiest way to do that, is invest in products that’ll not only make your house look better, but add value through what they offer. Let’s look at what new windows can offer.

Exposure to daylight

New windows can do a lot to add new light to your home. Old windows can accrue dirt and dust that is stubborn and won’t come off with out expensive chemicals and treatment options. New windows not only add value, but also take out the hassle of trying to restore old windows. 

Adding daylight to your home will help save on electricity, too. The added light will bring a natural feeling to your home. One that will be warmed and lit by the sun. 

Easy Maintenance

When older windows begin to break down, re-caulking may need to be done, one of the panes may need to be replaced. The repairs may start to add up. If this was your car, let’s say the battery went out, then a couple weeks later, the started, then the alternator. When things start snowballing it’s better to invest in a newer car to avoid a money pit situation. 

The same can be said for older windows. Older windows can easily lead to structural and siding damage. It’s better to invest than it is to keep throwing money at an upkeep in a losing battle.

UV Exposure

When you look around your house and you see faded carpet, furniture and even portions of your wooden floor, it’s because of UV radiation coming through your windows. 

Older windows don’t have proper UV protection, simply because the technology did not exist. Now that it does, its time to invest in new windows.

They can make your wallet by saving you money on your energy bill. Here are some of the signs that you’ll need new windows.

 

Condensation

Depending on the type of condensation, you will need new windows. If you the condensation is on the inside, then that is natural. However, if its between window panes than that is an easy way to know that your sealing is cracked. Sealant that is cracked is a problem for several reasons. The biggest being, your heating bill is directly being affected by the cracking. Re-sealing doesn’t usually fix the bigger problem.

State of your window frames

The state of your window frames is a huge indicator you will need new windows. Rotting window frames aren’t just  symptoms of the obvious, but it can easily lead to structural damage. Rotting window frames hit your wallet hard and you will notice.

if your windows need replacing, give us a call here at Harley Exteriors!

Signs You Need a New Roof

 When you first bought your home, you thought it was indestructible. As time went on, it seemed that way. However, the long winters here in the Pacific Northwest can be tough. Years and years of tough rain and snow on your roof are starting to show, but you’re not sure. Sometimes it can be tricky if the obvious isn’t noticeable.

The obvious, of course, are leaks, shingles falling clear off and holes you can see through. These situations are often times the wake-up call that can easily be prevented. If the early signs aren’t caught, you may be looking at more than just a roof replacement. Here are 3 not so noticeable signs your roof may need to be replaced.

Cracked Shingles

Crack shingles are the easiest thing to ignore. The reason is because it may be hard to spot cracks if they aren’t of a substantial size. Cracks can appear most easily at the ends. When straining and cracking happens, it’ll happen slowly and overtime. Taking a good 5-10 minutes look at your roof before you walk in, can save you ten’s of thousands of dollars in potential spending.

Age

Just based off sheer age, it can be time. If your roof is over 20 years old, then it may be time to begin shopping around. Most roofs are meant to last about that long, so if you haven’t had any major damage by then, it’s time to not take your luck for granted and begin taking a serious look at a new window.

Moss

Moss may seem like it’s a purely cosmetic issue. But it’s not. In the Pacific Northwest climate, moss is rampant and leads to other problems. Moisture and moss can lead to mold on the internal parts of your roof. 

I’m sure we’ve all seen a movie where someone is running across a roof and it caves in. The type of of effect mold can have on your roof. It weakens certain spots and will spread to the rest of the roof.

DIY Vs. Contractors.

Scrolling through your Facebook timeline will generally yield all sorts of things, such as cat pictures, memories and of course DIY videos. These videos range from cooking ideas, to organizational skills, all the way to home improvement ideas. While some are practical and definitely effective, some aren’t and can result in mistakes that’ll end up costing you too much time and money than it’s worth to do it right in the first place. 

Granted, most DIY videos are meant to be practical and minimalistic in nature. However, you do get some that are a little bit more intense than others. Some are made by professionals with their industrial grade tools. This is misleading because it does not differentiate between two different groups of people with different skills. Here are some of the cons to trying to do certain projects on your own.

 

Roof:

Roofs are a big project and may seem simple when seeing a team working on one. the truth is, that is months of work and time taken to survey each minute detail. Working on a roof also depends on your location. The type of room that is installed in Arizona is going to be different than one that’s installed in Washington. 

Installing your own roof is time costly as well. A crew of 3-4 workers can install a roof, generally in half the time a single person can do this. Not only does it take up you a huge amount of time, but the materials are not cheap either. When you go with a contractor, materials are included in the general price. with this, the cost is taken care of, and the research for getting the right roofing materials is not something you’ll need to worry about.

 

Windows:

Windows are a lot harder to do yourself. The reason being measurements, correct windows and access to manufacturers. Someone that is not familiar with measuring for windows can easily make mistakes, even though this may not be the intention, this can easily happen.

Anyone that has shopped for windows know that getting the correct window for your region is a huge part of the equation. in Texas you may only want single pane windows, while in Maine, you’ll need double, maybe even triple pane windows. This important because choosing the right number can save you on your electric bill. While the savings are relative, this is definitely a factor to consider. 

With these factors being considered, please reach out to Harley Exteriors so we can answer any questions you may have. 425-527-0077
