The warm weather invites homeowners to turn their attention to projects designed to improve their homes. If you are one such homeowner, you might want to think about replacing your windows, your doors, or even both. At C&T Siding, we've pulled together a list of top reasons why we think these are excellent projects to plan this summer.

1. You want to improve energy efficiency

While an increase in your utility bill is expected as the weather turns colder, it shouldn’t be too drastic of a change. If you find that your costs have slowly crept up over the years, your windows and doors might be to blame. This is especially true if they are old. Even if they are relatively new, it's possible they were not installed correctly. Whatever is the reason behind their inefficiency, by replacing them this summer, you'll notice a significant improvement in the amount of energy that your home uses.

2. You want to be more comfortable this summer

Did you spend this last summer constantly adjusting the thermostat so that you and your family could remain comfortable? Are there noticeable gaps in your windows and doors where the cool air can escape? If the answer to either of these questions is "yes" chances are that replacing your windows and doors will make you more comfortable. More of the cool air will remain inside your home while the hot air stays outside.

3. You want to improve the way your home looks

A related reason might be that you want to put your home up for sale in the near future, so you want to increase its value. Replacing the doors, windows, or both this summer can provide that benefit to you. The first impression your home makes is vitally important. This is true whether it's you coming home after a long day or a potential buyer who is pulling into your driveway. A new front door provides a welcoming look that exudes warmth and class. A battered and older door makes the entire home look tired, worn out and less attractive.

Replacement windows and doors not only add monetary value to your home, they invite more natural sunlight into it as well. This also adds to the welcoming impression that is seen by anyone who comes into your yard. For more information, check out our Windows and Doors Installation page.
