Most of the country is stuck at home right now and there might be a part of you that feels helpless. But there are a lot of things you can do while you are at home that you might not have time for otherwise. And while you might not want to travel to the window store to look over options right now, there are other things you can do and consider replacement windows in Ontario, CA while you are at home indefinitely. Here are a few things to consider:
A Thorough Window Cleaning
If you have older windows and you don’t have much time to pay attention to them, they may just need a good cleaning. If it’s going to be awhile before you get replacements, you might want to clean them up and have them look as nice as possible in the meantime. Consider the extra time at home a blessing for projects of this nature. Clean the windows inside and out and see how that works for the curb appeal and interior appearance of the windows.
Fresh Coats Of Paint
If you have the paint on hand and you’ve just been putting the project off for sake of time, you might want to move forward and paint your windows while the weather turns nicer and you have plenty of time at home available to you. The fresh coat of paint can make the windows look better and even operate well, too.
You may think that your windows need to be replaced because they are old and you are probably right, but you can be even more sure if you do a good inspection of the windows. Take a look at the caulking around the windows. It is chipped and cracked? Would replacing it help or just put a band-aid on a way bigger problem? Does the air leak through your windows constantly? Are some of the frames rotting? Are others warped? Take an inventory of your windows and see what needs to be done to get them back into working order. You may be sure that they need replacement and if that’s the case, you can move on to researching the options and making plans.
If you have decided that you are going to get new windows as soon as you can, you might also want to consider the window coverings. You will have to take the coverings down in order to put the new windows in so it’s a good time to put something new up afterward if you’d like. Take a look at your window coverings and see if they are fresh enough to suit new windows or if you want to also budget for that project at the same time.
