When’s the Last Time You Took “Inventory” of Your Home?
Anyone feel like you’re at the point of social distancing where you’re running out of at-home activities? We have a pretty good one for you! Before the cool fall weather hits, why don’t you take “inventory” of your home! When we say, “inventory” we don’t mean the typical inventory you’re thinking of. This type of inventory doesn’t involve cleaning our closets or reorganizing the garage.
How often do we take inventory of the physicial structure of our home? Usually, we only notice issues with our windows, leaks in our roofs, doors old hinges and stained siding when it’s too late or something is causing issues. Today we’re going to talk about why it’s important to dedicate to to taking a full sweep of your home to make sure you catch any issues in their tracks!
Here are a few questions to ask yourself as you investigate the status of your home:
How sturdy are my windows? Are they sealed well enough?
There are many reasons to consider replacing you windows. Older windows could have loose seals which is causing your warm/cold air to leak out leaving you with a higher energy bill! Also, we encourage you to simply stand back and take a good look at your house. Are the old windows reducing your curb appeal? This is especially important if you are thinking of putting your house on the market in the coming months.

And my doors? Is it time to upgrade?
Similarly to your windows, your doors could be having the same issues causing you to have a higher energy bill. Another big issue you may notice is the way the doors operate. Are they getting jammed? Are you noticing you need to a little extra “umph” when trying to get out of them? These problems are likely to get worse over time as your home expands in the hotter months and retracts in the colder seasons.

All double and triple insulated glass panels come with code compliant tempered safety glass in all panes.

Yikes, is it time to replace our siding?
During spring/summer, green algae or pollen is thick in the air and it usually finds a good place to land…on your siding. If you are finding yourself pressure washing year after year, you might also notice that your siding doesn’t have the luster it once did.
At the Window Source of West Texas, you can choose from multiple siding options to give your home the look you are going for.
