Four Home Improvement Projects To Do Over The Winter Months
Maybe it’s cold outside, but that doesn’t mean you have to put aside your home improvement plans.
Winter is the perfect time to improve your home’s energy efficiency and beauty, and believe it or not, it can be done without exposing you and your family to the elements.
Consider these options to make your home more comfortable, efficient, and enjoyable:
- Save energy by replacing windows. Reducing monthly utility bills starts with efficiency, and windows can be notorious energy wasters. Century Home Improvements has a wide selection of replacement windows that keep your house warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. These solutions can also cut off the harsh UV rays that damage and fade curtains and furniture. Double or triple pane glass options filled with krypton or argon gas can improve energy efficiency by up to 40 percent over standard replacement windows.
- Close the doors on drafts. When you replace your old front door or add a new storm door, you not only save money, but you create a more comfortable climate for you and your family. New energy efficient entrance doors and storm doors seal your home from the elements and come in a wide variety of styles from basic to elegant. Century offers high quality, energy efficient doors that provide years of service and home protection.
- Get classy with color filled glass windows or doors. Century offers color filled glass designs to fit your personality and style, allowing your window or door to become a centerpiece in your home. Inspirations™ Art Glass by ProVia looks like stained glass but is more energy efficient and affordable than real stained glass. Inspirations™ Art Glass can transform a simple window or door into a work of art. Century can even install Energy-Star rated ComforTech DLA-UV glass to ensure your home remains energy efficient. Not only are they beautiful, these windows have an enhanced double glaze, high performing Low-E coating for increased UV protection and are filled with argon gas for better insulation. They come in a variety of styles, shapes and colors to match the aesthetics of your home.
- Add a touch of elegance with French doors. Replace that old sliding glass door with a set of French doors leading to your deck or garden space or class up room-separating archways leading to your living or sitting areas with new interior French doors. Besides offering a timeless sophistication to your home, interior French doors can be equipped with soundproofing material to reduce noise from one room to another and create quiet spaces.
