Is your home currently in need of both a new front door and new replacement windows in Tacoma, WA? If so, you might be thinking about installing the door now and then replacing the windows later to make it easier for you to pay for both projects.
This isn’t the worst plan in the world. But if you can swing it, it’s just about always better to install new windows and a new front door at the same time. There are several benefits that you’ll get to enjoy when you tackle the two projects simultaneously. Here are 4 reasons why you should install replacement windows and doors together.
Keeps the look of your home uniform
If you replace your front door right now and then add new Tacoma, WA windows in a month or two, you won’t have to worry about your mismatched door and windows too much. But if the second part of the process is delayed for whatever reason and you don’t get around to replacing your windows for a few years, you’ll likely regret not installing your new door and windows together. Your house will not look its best until you finally get around to ripping out your old windows and putting in new ones.
Makes your home as energy efficient as it can be
When you put a new front door on your home, it’ll instantly make your home a little bit more energy efficient. The new front doors on the market today are designed to prevent air from outside from getting in while also keeping air from inside in. But your home won’t be as energy efficient as it would be if you replaced your door and your windows. Doing both will increase your energy efficiency exponentially and make a much bigger dent in your energy bills.
Cuts down on the inconvenience of taking on two separate projects
Do you really want to have to invite crews into your home twice to work on your door and then your windows? It can be inconvenient having to take off work and expose your home to the elements on two separate occasions. When you agree to have windows and doors installed together, your home will only need to undergo one project.
Potentially saves you money
Most window and door companies will offer you a better deal on windows and doors if you decide to install them together. Since the companies will already have a crew at your home for either your windows or your door, doing the other won’t require as much effort on their part. They can extend a reduced price on windows and doors in most cases when you buy them in bulk as opposed to buying them separately.
