When you think about the types of home improvement projects that will have a big impact in your home, you might not initially think of installing retrofit windows. Instead, you probably think of things like changing out all your flooring, updating your kitchen, or even putting a fresh coat of paint on all of your walls. But ask anyone who has recently replaced all of their home’s windows and they might change your mind. Retrofit windows can have a huge impact—and not just on how your home looks, but also how it feels.
Improving Curb Appeal
The most obvious improvement to the appearance of your home will be on the exterior. Retrofit windows can give your home a clean and updated look, with new frames, new glass, and new screens. You have the option to choose from several different frame styles so you can pick the one that will best complement the style of your home. For a traditional home, you could choose a frame that’s thicker and more detailed. For a more modern style of home, you could select a thinner, simpler frame. For a dramatic change, you could even go with colored window frames, such as black, bronze, gray, tan, or even forest green or red!
Helping Create a Quiet and Cozy Environment Inside
On the inside of your home, retrofit windows can make a huge impact on the comfort level. Retrofit windows that are energy efficient will help keep your home at a comfortable temperature year round by insulating your home from the outside temperatures. Even on the hottest summer days, you’ll find that you don’t need to run your air conditioner nearly as much, and you may never need to use your heater again!
Retrofit windows will also help insulate your home from outside noise. You might be surprised at how big of a difference new windows can make in this area. Our customers constantly tell us how amazed they are at how quiet their homes are after having their new windows installed—especially our customers who live on busy streets, near the airport, near elementary schools, or in neighborhoods with lots of barking dogs. All the retrofit windows we sell to our San Diego customers have some sound suppression technology built in, but if you live in a particularly noisy neighborhood, we recommend Anlin Windows with their upgraded sound package.
If you currently struggle to open and close your windows or sliding patio doors, retrofit windows will make operating your windows a breeze! The high-quality sliding windows and doors we sell at BM Windows in San Diego glide open and closed smoothly—every time! Your single hung and awning windows will stay open when you want them to in order to allow in fresh air, and you won’t have to struggle with your sliding patio doors every time you want to go outside.
In addition, all of your new windows and doors will lock securely for the protection of you and your family.
If you’ve been putting up with your old windows and doors simply because you’ve been prioritizing other home improvement projects that you think will have a greater impact on your home life, you might want to consider moving retrofit windows to the top of your list.
