Are you trying to figure out what to look for when it comes to new windows and doors for your home in Tustin? Depending on your family, your location, and your personal budget and needs, there could be a wide range of things that you should focus on when you search for new windows and doors.
Let’s start with the most basic aspects of windows in your home. If you have a number of homes that surround yours, in close proximity, and you don’t have any real view that is important for you to keep, such as an expansive landscaped yard or beautiful rolling hills through the back of your property, then you’re not going to require any large picture style windows.
If you have a lot of houses close to yours, then you’re certainly going to be concerned about privacy, especially if you have young children. This doesn’t mean that you should go out and buy the cheapest, smallest windows that you can find. There are certain things that you can do that can improve the privacy of your windows, such as tinting.
However, let’s say that you have a few large windows in your home that you don’t tend to enjoy. You might keep the curtains drawn over them, especially as the sun begins to set. What if you could do more with that room by having more wall space? You could consider installing a couple of smaller double hung windows or even casement windows that could be set up higher than your current windows. This would allow the sun to shine in during the day, brightening your room while also providing you with the privacy you desire.
On the other hand, perhaps you want to open your windows up more. You might have purchased this home a few years ago and the previous owners were not too open and didn’t have large windows. They might have kept small, narrow windows that don’t do justice to the view that surrounds your home.
Can you make these kind of adjustments? Can you take small windows and open up the wall to install new, larger windows? Could you take two small double hung windows that are awkward in their current layout and open the wall up to add a nice bay or bow window between them? Can you take large window displays and install smaller windows instead?
Absolutely. You can do almost anything that you want when it comes to windows and doors in your home. You only need to realize that when you are changing the size of the window, you’re going to need to change the size of the framing and as a result it requires more work. More work by the contractor means more expense.
The same holds true for entry doors, patio doors, and even converting one type of interior door for French doors. Some reframing work may be required, but once you understand that, then you know that you’re not bound by anything, other than structural supports in the home, but are generally not an issue with exterior walls.
Alright, I’m ready to find new windows and doors for my Tustin home. Now what?
We’re glad you asked. Your first step is to gather an idea about what you want to replace. Are you looking to replace all of the windows in your home? Maybe you had (or the previous owner had) the windows in the bedrooms replaced but didn’t do anything about the rest of the windows.
The more windows that you plan on replacing at once, the more you’ll save in the long run by having them installed at the same time. The more trips that an installer has to come to your home, it’s going to increase the overall investment you need to make in these windows and doors.
So make a list of all of the windows and doors that you would like to replace in your home. Take video or plenty of pictures of the rooms and hallways. Then head on down to Pacific Shores Window and Doors.
