If eyes are windows to your soul, are windows the eyes of your home? Even if they aren’t, it’s clear that windows are important. They let in the warmth of the sun while keeping the chill of the air outside. If you feel a draft or your windows are damaged or never look clean, it may be time to replace your old windows. When you have beautiful new windows installed, your home will be more comfortable. New windows will retain heat and air conditioning better and can save you on energy costs. Another perk is it will raise your home’s value. That’s great news if you hope to sell in the near future!
