Windows do more than just offer you a view of the outdoors. There are several ways that they can improve the state of your Leawood home, from adding light to even boosting your curb appeal and home value. Of course, the quality of windows makes a big difference. At Johnson County Siding & Window Co., we offer the best replacement windows from top manufacturers like ProVia, Simonton, and Marvin. Here are a few of the problems they can solve when it comes to your home.
Dimly Lit Rooms
If you have a room that feels a little bit like a dungeon, the solution isn’t to add more electrical lighting — it’s to add more windows. Even if you have a couple windows in the room, they might not be properly positioned to let in the most light. Consider larger styles like double hung, slider, or bay/bow windows. You could also install awning windows towards the top of the walls, so that light flows down into the room. By relying on natural sunlight outside, you’ll not only fix the dimness problem in the room but will help to make your home more energy efficient, saving on electricity bills.
On the other hand, maybe you have a room that feels a little cramped, but you don’t have the money to add on to it or take down any walls. You can trick the eye by installing windows to make the room feel more spacious and wider. Bay and bow windows are especially handy if this is your goal. These 3 or 5-pane windows are convex, curving outward in an elegant fashion, so they do add to the space in the room, just a bit. They also offer wide, sweeping views of your outdoor space, and with more light, the room will feel even larger.
Poor Home Value
Need a way to boost your home value? The problem might be that your old windows are outdated or faulty, causing drafts in the home or window condensation. Replacing those windows with updated, energy efficient models will make an excellent change to your home value. Energy efficiency upgrades are always bound to make your home more appealing on the housing market, and the best replacement windows will offer energy efficiency while also giving your home a fresh look that boosts your curb appeal.
