Summer is the ideal time of the year to start seriously looking at larger renovation projects around your home. The warmer weather brings great opportunity to tackle these big jobs. Everyone has at least one room in their home that they know needs attention whether it’s a bathroom, living room, bedroom, dining room or outdoor structure. Full room renovations can be big projects in and of themselves, throw in a window or two and homeowners can start thinking the project is too big to get started. But the reality is, window replacement can be one of the most straightforward elements of the renovation when the job is handled by professional glass installation experts! Today we are going to be covering all the best residential glass products you’ll need for your Summer renovations.
Let’s start with a living room example. One great way to make your living room shine (literally) is with complete window replacement with new windows. We have a variety of hardware and styles for our windows that will make your living room pop. We use vinyl and aluminum frames with insulated, Low-E coated glass throughout the window range. Each category of window frame comes with its own unique design options and characteristics. You can read more about the different window options here.
High quality, properly installed glass is a major part of any impressive bathroom design. This is especially true of the bath and shower. When renovating your bathroom, there are a lot of questions that can be raised when it comes to the bath and shower. What style of shower should I do? Should I consider a tub? Do I want it to look traditional or more modern? All of these are great questions, and we have solutions for all of them. When picking a glass shower or tub enclosure, we offer two styles: Traditional and Frameless (heavy) glass enclosures. The difference is traditional has metal bars around the glass that the glass is attached to. The benefit of this is we offer a huge variety of framing and glass options. Frameless is going to look much more modern because they are made from a thicker, tempered glass and have very minimal hardware giving them a very open feel.
Another critical area for quality glass would be the dining room and kitchen area. Besides upgrading the windows in these areas like you would the living room, these areas also give you great options for skylights and patio doors. Skylights can make your house brighter and more open. Adding skylights to a kitchen will forever change that room for the better. It’s one of the most luxurious options you can add to your home for the price. Patio doors can also be a very nice touch to a house. The grand entrance to your backyard space is crucial during the Summer months when you’re spending the most time outside. Many homes that have undergone many renovations still have the original sliding glass doors for their patio entryway. Changing your old barely working double slider to a new one, or adding French doors in their place will add immediate aesthetic and functional value to your home.
Even if not undertaking major renovations, Summer is a great time for general window repair or replacement. So if you’re tired of looking at a cracked window you know needs replacement, or a double pane window with moisture between the panes, now is a great time to address it. If you have glass that is broken or damaged, our skilled and friendly team will get the job done right!
