Much of the hail damage to windows has been repaired, so we are back to the more normal scopes of work of fogged windows, remodels that want replacement windows and custom showers, and the like. And then everyone has the ongoing maintenance projects that life presents us. And who doesn’t need window cleaning with Austin getting more rain and wind than it has in awhile. Just in time for the holidays!!
Repairing fogged windows is one of the least expensive and most bang-for-your-buck fixes you can do to your home. It’s a little curious to me that many people wait until selling their homes to fix windows (not to mention putting in frameless showers). The cost is much less than replacement windows, and the appearance of your home is restored to like new. It just makes sense to enjoy the clean and clear look from getting those repairs done, rather than doing it just for the next person to enjoy. I can’t tell you the number of customers who have cleaned windows for a sale, then said they wish they’d lived in their home with that bright view of outside. But human nature is the topic of another web post.
You can also upgrade the glass to the more energy-efficient LowE products and keep the same frames. That enables you to use the most recent technology in energy reduction without the invasive process of removing stone and mortar to get window frames out and put in new windows. That’s not the only way to replace windows, but that is a common concern about the process. We can replace windows in the existing opening without affecting the exterior and interior too, which is nearly painless. But it does cost more for new windows than just replacing glass.
And speaking of holidays, maybe you’d like someone else to put up your Holiday lights? Just saying. We could talk about common sense approaches to risk/reward if you’d like.
