My oldest, Jenn, and I are now doing windows.
Tuning them up and adding weatherstripping. There is a lot of pressure from window replacement companies to dump your old drafty wood windows and replace them with new high performance ones with a lot of whizz and bang.
Consider this though, the current windows in your home have lasted for many years, in some cases a 100 years. How long will the new ones last? And how much will they save?
Recently the FTC cautioned five window companies for making flase claims on the energy savings from installing new windows. I have talked to several homeowners who are disappointed in the energy savings from replacing their windows.
This is not to say some windows should not be repalced however if you have wood windows please consider tuning them up before calling the window replacement company, we can help.
We do doors too!
