4 things to know about door and window renovation projects
When shopping for new doors and/or windows, one of the first things to take into account is their energy performance. This means that they offer high insulation levels and that they are considered environmentally-friendly. Use the Energy Star seal as a guide. The same goes for Novoclimat certified products.
Door and window renovation projects should always be completed by professionals, especially when concerning exterior parts of the house. Even though installing a new front door may seem rather easy, there are too many potential errors to be made along the way. If, for example, you don’t install the door frame properly, it could move around over time, making it harder to open and close the door. A window that hasn’t been well installed could let (warm or cold) air and water seep into the house, affecting the quality of life of the occupants.
To put off robbers, choose a maximum-security lock. Euro cylinders and mortise locks are good options to consider. Reinforcing exterior doors using armours is another popular option. No need to be obsessed with safety to install an armoured door. These types of systems fit well in both commercial and residential contexts.
A supposed door and window specialist shows up at your house while knocking on several doors in the area? Remain cautious. Although this practice is used by honest contractors, in many instances, it can turn out to be a fraudulent offer. Before you accept this person’s proposal, make sure that they have the proper certifications to complete this type of work (in certain places, the company also needs a permit to go out door knocking). Even better, send your project to RenoQuotes.com and we will put you in contact with contractors that have already been vetted by us through our verification system.
