WINDOWS: KEEP THE OUTSIDE OUT, AND THE INSIDE IN
Quality windows enhance the appearance and charm of your home, and save you money on utilities at the same time
There are quite a few benefits to getting new windows put on your house. Windows let in light to make the inside of your home bright and cheery. They keep out the cold, and keep in the heat. Of course, they also keep out the wind, rain and snow! If you have ever been in a drafty room during the cold winter months, you know how miserable old, leaky windows can be! Modern windows are extremely energy efficient, which saves you money on utilities. There are also many options available to fit and personality and style that you may want to bring to your home.
Your old windows are leaking
If you can hold your hand near the seams in your windows and feel air currents, its probably time for new windows. This is one of the main reasons for replacing windows – especially if your home is old. Leaking air can be unpleasant, but leaking moisture can be very costly, so try to replace your windows before they actually begin to leak.
Enhance the curb appeal of your home
New windows can really boost the overall look of your home. Update the look and style of your home without doing a complete renovation, and save money in the process: a win-win.
Save $$$ on utilities
Modern windows are extremely well insulated, especially compared with older, wooden sliding windows that are nowhere near as well sealed. A quality window installed by a professional will be very effective at keeping your heat and air conditioning inside – saving you money on your monthly utility bills.
Ease of cleaning
Ask about windows that fold out for easy cleaning on both sides. Keeping your windows clean on both the inside and outside will let in more light. During the winters here in Chicagoland, we need all the light we can get!

Simple way to update the look of your home
A new front door can add a pop of color to your home, adding to its attractiveness for a relatively small investment. Work with the existing style and appearance of your home, or contrast to add interest. We can widen entries as well – extra wide doors and side panels can contribute to a welcoming feel.
Extra security and enhanced insulation
A thick solid door with a heavy deadbolt can give you peace of mind, knowing that the door is very strong. Some older style doors can be drafty as well, and another area for air to escape in the wintertime.
More windows can let in more light
Windows can be on the door itself, or possibly on side panels. This can almost transform your door into another window, increasing the natural light in your home.
