Invest In Quality Replacement Windows and Doors For Your Simi Valley, CA Home

It’s easy to see replacing the windows in your Simi Valley home as nothing more than expense. An expense is something that you have to incur because you either need to or want a particular product or service. However, when it comes to replacement windows and doors, it’s important to begin changing your perspective as much as possible. That’s because when you change your perspective, you will ultimately end up choosing the right windows for every room in your home rather than the cheapest ones or ones that are ‘just good enough.’

When you’re looking at purchasing a new flatscreen TV, that’s an expense. If you want ice cream for dessert, that’s an expense. Your house was an investment and for most people it is the single most significant investment they will ever make in their life. Purchasing a sports car is an expense. Purchasing savings bonds or buying stock is an investment.

An investment is something that you spend money on, or time, and expect to get some type of return on it. It doesn’t always work out that way, but that is the goal of any investment. An expense is something you spend time or money on without the expectation of increasing in value or giving you any return on that expense or money you spent on it in the future.

Now is the time to change your perspective when it comes to replacement windows or doors.

The reason why so many people think about this home improvement project as an expense.

At Quality Windows and Doors, we have been helping homeowners just like yourself for more than 35 years and understand many of the most common mistakes people make when it comes to this project. Many people see replacing their existing windows or entry doors at an expense because they already have windows and doors in place. After all, as long as you have windows already there, wouldn’t it stand to reason that they don’t need to be replaced?

In truth, windows and even entry doors have a life expectancy, just like everything else. The average window will last between 10 to 15 years and the average entry door may last 15 to 30 years, depending on the type of door, quality, and how much it is used.

As windows get older, they can get more difficult to open and close, will not offer the same protection against the cold air during those winter nights or against the heat of the summer sun, and they detract from the appearance of the home itself.

Why window replacements replacement windows are an investment.

As mentioned, an investment is something in which you would expect or hope to gain a positive return on at some point in the future. You can certainly view a 70 inch flatscreen TV and Blu-ray disc player as being an investment because it will bring you many years of enjoyment, but the moment you get it home, take it out of the box, and mount it on the stand or on the wall, its value has already diminished. It’s the same when you purchase a new car. The moment you drive the new car off the dealership lot, its value has already diminished by several thousand dollars.

Those aren’t investments; they are expenses. An investment is something that helps to boost value or savings in the future. When you install energy efficient replacement windows, not only will you be saving money on your cooling expenses and even heating expenses throughout the year, but when you purchase quality windows that look great in every room in the house, it can also boost the overall value of your house.

Even if you’re thinking of selling your home in the next few years, it’s a good idea to consider replacing very old windows and even entry doors with quality ones. A $5,000 investment in this particular home improvement project could lead to many more offers and a much higher sales price.

The ‘investment’ in new entry doors can have an even greater return on your investment.

While a quality front door can increase curb appeal by a significant amount, when you’re talking about entry doors, think about security and being able to protect your family and possessions.

The first place anyone would attempt to gain entry into a home is through the doors. It might not be the front door, but it could be a side door or even a back door or something along the deck. If the sliding glass patio door is old and outdated and doesn’t offer much protection, it could be relatively easy for somebody to gain access into your home.

If the side door or back door is basic, has a bit of play when it is closed, or is difficult to shut properly and deadbolt the latch, it can become a liability.

A higher quality entry door is going to help improve security and safety for your house and your entire family. Once you realize that quality replacement windows and doors is an investment, just like any investment you want to start the process of purchasing them at the right place.

That means it you should consider the right company.
