How we saved money on windows
Maintenance on a house is a big responsibility! If your house needs attention and you don’t nurture it with protection it will become cranky! It will loose value.
When I shop with buyers they are quite conscious of the condition of windows! Buyers are looking to find what additional work is needed to repair a home. Many times a buyer will walk away from an option because they don’t want all the work or they would not be able to afford the repairs or replacements.
So whether you are planning to sell your house or stay in your house you may want to consider taking care of your windows!
At our house, we have really large windows. I love having the large windows because I feel like I can see the whole world from inside! My world that is. Our very own park. The seal was broken in two windows and made the glass look foggy. Unattractive! It was blocking my view! Rather than replacing the whole unit, we replaced the glass. $672. That was for very large windows!
The paint had chipped off of the wood on the exterior window frames. The wood was exposed to the elements and at risk of rotting. We did not want the expense of replacing our massive windows. We have three the same size that were in poor condition.
I heard about window cladding from a client named Jennefer. She told me how the frames can be wrapped and protected from the elements. That had me curious! I contacted
Jason’s partner Nancy responded quickly and made an appointment for Jason to come by. He gave us an estimate of $6.50 /sq ft to clad the 5 windows that were in need of repair. Our Quote was $1085.50. We said YES! The following week Jason came two days in a row and did the work. My bill? $1085.50 just like the quote! The results?
In the future I want to see log siding replace this vinyl siding. The property we are on is in a great location and we find it to be a fulfillment of our dream. We want to stay! Our house is small, mature, and simple. It feels like a cottage because of the pine kitchen and trim. It’s home. It’s where love lives.
Our windows have been preserved and we saved money! That sentence is a good story. That sentence would have been my husbands version of this blog.
When you call Jason to get an estimate on cladding your windows, let him know that you heard about his services from me!
