Are you an interior decorator at heart? Do you enter a room and think of all the things you would do differently with that space if it were yours? Even if that’s not how you operate, when you are in the market for replacement windows in Ventura, CA, it’s wise to take a close look at your current windows and think about the things you would change. When you get window replacement done, you can change each and every item on your list and then some if you want. Here are a few things you might want to change.
The Window Material
IF you have wood frames, sure, they’re warm and welcoming, but they take a lot of work as well. IT’s hard to keep up with the painting and maintenance over the years and if you don’t, the wood can deteriorate pretty quickly. Rot can settle in and the warping takes over, which causes you to need new windows in the first place. You don’t want that to happen with new windows so it might be best to get another material, like vinyl. Not only does vinyl cost less, but you don’t have to maintain it like wood, and it’ll last longer. That’s a great change to make.
If you feel like the frame color is okay now, but you’d really be better off with another shade or a darker or lighter tone, when you get new windows, it’s the perfect time to make the shift. The most popular choice is white because it looks good with everything, but some homeowners go with black for a contrast today, too. And then there are those who like to match their home or go with a similar tone in a slightly darker or lighter color.
If you’re tired of double hung windows that interrupt your view, or you don’t like that the casement windows open over the garden, there are plenty of other options to consider. Swap those styles out for something different so you can get something that looks nice and functions well in every room of the house.
The hardware on your windows seems like a small thing, but it can be a big deal appearance-wise. IF the hardware is plain now and doesn’t stand out, you might want to get something to dress up the room a bit more. There are nearly endless options on hardware. Have a material and finish in mind and go from there.
