THE IMPORTANCE OF VENTILATION - OPEN THOSE WINDOWS!

 

Did you know we spend as much as 90% of our time indoors? Or that every one of us breathes in and out about 22,000 times a day? Lack of fresh air hampers our capabilities and is one of the leading causes of allergies.

Indoor air quality starts with improving ventilation. While there is an entire industry dedicated to mechanical ventilation, simply opening your windows whenever you can provides the best form of natural ventilation - removing stuffy, stale, contaminated air and replacing it with fresh air from outside. In addition, the flow of fresh air thoughout your home will reduce heat buildup, creating a comfortable and healthy indoor environment!

If you need help getting your windows or screens in shape to enjoy the fresh spring air, give us a call - we love hearing from you!

CHOOSING A NEW FRONT DOOR

 

Unlike interior doors, Entryway doors need to be sturdy and durable to withstand varying (and extreme) weather conditions and provide security, yet also be welcoming with excellent curbside appeal.

Many older doors are made of wood or wood veneer, which crack, warp, peel or separate after years of exposure to wind, rain and scorching heat. Even older or lesser quality steel doors can be known to peel on the surface.

The problem most people have when replacing their Entryway is they are unaware of the extent of what is available! Contacting a Window & Door professional will give you insight on a style of door to suit your year-round weather conditions, while keeping your home front attractive and friendly.
