The doors on your home do more than boost curb appeal; they also play an important role in your property’s energy efficiency and security. Upgrading to energy-efficient windows can reduce your monthly utility bills by preventing heat from escaping outdoors in winter and letting hot indoor air escape in summer.
Windows are more than just a cosmetic feature of your home; they also contribute to its functionality and feel. If you have old or leaky windows, you should hire a window replacement company to upgrade them. This will improve the look of your home and save you money on energy costs.
Some companies offer a wide range of options to suit different needs and budgets. They may include a variety of frame materials, design options, and glass packages. They can even add a skylight or roof window to bring in more natural light and open up the space.
If you want to install energy-efficient windows, you should look for a window installation company that has certifications from Energy Star. This will help you save more on your energy bills and reduce greenhouse emissions. The length of time a company has been in business and the quality of its workmanship are other factors to consider when choosing a window installer.
Interior Door Replacement
Door installation and replacement are a key home improvement project that improves both the aesthetic and the functionality of your home. The experts at local door companies can help you select and install the right doors for each room in your house. They can even assist you with any additional carpentry work required to hang the new doors. Interior doors come in a variety of designs and styles to suit any aesthetic. Options include 6-panel, flat, 2-panel, arched and molded doors. You can also choose doors that are embellished with rosettes or other carpentry details. Many interior doors are made with wood veneers that make the most of wood use while maximizing durability and affordability.
Having drafty doors not only lets cold air into the house and raises your energy bills, it also allows pests inside your home. A professional can make sure your doors seal properly. This requires accurate measurements and precise chiseling of hinge mortises.
Storm Door Installation
A storm door offers your entry door an extra layer of protection against snow, rain, and ice while allowing natural light in to your home. They also provide energy efficiency, insect and pest protection, ventilation, and noise reduction. They can be installed either above or below an existing exterior door. They come in full, mid, and high-view designs. EcoView Windows & Doors of Detroit North has been providing professional storm door installation for 23 years.
To install a storm door, begin by measuring your existing front door and the latch frame. Order a storm door that matches those measurements, and double check with the label on the packaging that it fits your door opening correctly. Then, attach the hinge-side z-bar, adjusting it as needed to match any sloping on the bottom of your door threshold.
Once the z-bar is in place, cut and attach the latch-side one as well. Then, adjust the strike plate so that it lines up with the latch frame and locks correctly.
Garage Door Replacement
If your garage door squeaks, shakes, rumbles, or rolls unevenly, you may need to replace it. A garage door company can help you determine whether your problem is an easy fix, such as replacing dead batteries in the remote control, or a more serious issue that warrants a replacement.
Replacing a garage door can improve your home’s appearance, boost security, and increase its value. However, it is important to vet contractors to avoid scams and fly-by-night companies. Ask friends for referrals and check online reviews and complaints.
If your garage door needs maintenance, an annual inspection is a good idea. A residential garage door specialist can visually inspect the entire system, determine whether it is balanced correctly, and clean and test safety eye sensors and auto-reverse features. They can also lubricate metal parts and replace torn weather stripping.
