The Homeowners Guide to Garage Door Replacement

Twilight exterior of home with three door garage

Along with kitchen remodeling and replacement windows, a new garage door is a key feature that many homeowners use to experience large returns on their investments. Replacing your garage door means more than just adding a newer door and opener to solve the problems of your old one.

Today's garage doors come in a wide range of different options and styles. If you like, you can easily have a traditional garage door installed that will provide new life and extended function to your garage. You can also choose the new and popular carriage-house style doors that are making waves among homeowners. A new garage door is an exciting prospect for any homeowner.

Materials
Your old garage door is likely made from metal or potentially a composite. Over time, metal can dent and deform with extended use. Years’ worth of chips and dings can show in the coat of paint, and eventually your old garage door can make your home look a little drab. Today's garage door systems are constructed from durable steel and are available with insulation, making the hot summer weather bearable. If your garage is heated, they offer double the benefits in winter. Non-attached garages can be completed with a non-insulated steel door that will stand up for the weather and years of use.

Colors and Styles
As mentioned above, the carriage-house style door is very popular. It opens like any garage door, but gives the appearance of horizontally operating carriage-house doors with the accompanying hardware to complete the look. You can choose several classic colors for traditional panel styles, and no matter what type you choose, you will be able to find the right solution to fit the architecture of your home.

Window World of Central Florida does more than just windows. We can help you find the perfect garage door for your home, including hardware and even the right style garage door opener. Contact us at (321) 282-6200 today if you have any questions.

The Benefits of Installing New Casement and Awning Windows

Window World Orlando - Windows

Finding the right new windows is key to enjoying your home in comfort and style. There are several types of replacement windows that you can choose for your home, and the right ones will show off your architecture to its greatest extent while also allowing in plenty of beautiful natural light.

Casement and awning windows are ideal for homeowners who want to experience the maximum amount of light inside their home and enjoy an unobstructed view of the outside world. They are simple and elegant, making them a timeless addition for nearly any style of home. They evoke both a modern and classic feel, and are very versatile. Both of these windows are easy to operate, making cleaning and utilizing a breeze.

  • Casement windows typically feature one or two panes that open outward horizontally, like doors. These types of windows that can be dressed with shutters on the outside and just about any type of window treatment on the inside. They fit well with nearly any architectural style, and can complement homes that enjoy multi-paned windows as well.
  • Awning windows consist of a single pane, again offering a beautiful uninterrupted view of the outside world, and tilt outwards from either the top or bottom edge. These windows can be oriented to your specifications. They can be used in combination with casement windows, creating a unique appearance. Awning windows are also ideal for bedrooms and bathrooms. They can be mounted high in the bath area to let in fresh air and light without compromising your privacy.

Both of these replacement window styles offer a very clean look, and they give the homeowner greater versatility for dressing them to the style of their choice. Window World offers these beautiful styles with our Lifetime Limited Warranty and all the energy-saving features you have come to expect from our products.

What You Can Do to Fix Your Broken Window Locks

To keep your home secure throughout the day and night, it’s important that your windows are locked securely to prevent them from being opened from the outside. However, if your windows are unable to lock or if the locks are broken, you may be unable to secure each window’s sash. Here are some things you can do to get your replacement windows to lock.

  • Sashes are Not Fully Closed

A common reason why replacement windows don’t lock is because the upper and lower sashes are not fully in the closed position. Try pushing each sash as far as it will go in the closed position, and then try to lock it again. In some instances, you may need two people to push on separate sashes to get the lock’s latches to line up.

  • Sashes are Not Aligned Correctly

A more serious issue is that your window sashes are not properly aligned. This is a common problem in older windows that suffer from extreme wear or poor maintenance, but it could also occur because of thermal expansion and contraction. Push the sashes firmly into the channels that hold them in place to make sure they line up straight.

  • Balance Shoe is Disengaged

The balance shoe is a part of the window frame that helps to move the window sash up and down in the frame. These components can sometimes get stuck, making it difficult to open or close your window properly. To fix this, remove your window sash and raise the balance shoes a few inches using a flat head screw driver. Once they’re locked into a new position, reinsert the sash and try moving the sash again.

Make the Right First Impression with a Beautiful New Entry Door

If you’re looking for a way to really bring some life to your home’s entryway, a new replacement entry door is an excellent option. Upgrading your entry door will add a new focal point to your home’s exterior, giving your home the curb appeal you’ve been looking for. Let’s look at some of the features and factors to consider when choosing a great new entry door.

Entry doors come in a wide variety of shapes, styles, and sizes, but the material you choose is one of the most important features of the door. Replacement doors come in a number of different materials, but the two most popular are wood and steel. Wood is a traditional door material and is unmatched in its elegance, versatility, and beauty. Steel doors, on the other hand, can give you a slightly modern twist on classic styles and designs, plus the added benefit of low maintenance and enhanced durability.

Another way to make a great first impression with your entry door is by using high-quality hardware. Choosing the right door handles, locks, door viewers, and knockers will bring out the texture and color of your door, making its design look cohesive and deliberate. Plus, high-quality hardware also gives you the added benefit of improved security and safety.

But some of the best features to look for in a door are the things you can’t see. For example, many of Window World’s replacement entry doors come with a foam core designed to give your door that extra insulation boost. This helps to reduce drafts, enhance home comfort, and improve home energy efficiency. Other features include reinforced door jambs, 90-minute fire ratings, and the best warranties available in Orlando.

Keep Your Windows to the World Clear with these Great Tips

Dirty windows are unsightly from the outside, unpleasant to look through, and more prone to the buildup of debris and potentially hazardous bacteria than clean windows are. If you would like to learn how to keep your windows sparkling clean with little effort, follow these tips:

WW Graphics 050

Choose Low-Maintenance Windows

Some windows are simply easier to keep clean than others. Speak with a window installation expert about installing windows that have one or more of the following qualities:

  • Beveled Exterior Mainframe: Windows with right-angled corners collect more dust and debris than windows with beveled exterior mainframes.
  • Sloped Windowsill or Full Capture Windowsill: A sloped windowsill forces water to drain right off of the sill, and full capture sills protect windows from the filtration of water and air.
  • Double Barrier-Fin Weatherstripping: With double barrier-fin weatherstripping, you can prevent dirt buildup from rapidly accumulating on your home’s windows.

Use an Appropriate Cleanser

Choose a cleanser designed specifically for glass, because all-purpose cleaners are not very effective when it comes to cleaning windows. Ask your window installation professional to recommend a specific type of cleanser, and wash your windows with it at least once a month. To avoid dust and dirt buildup in those hard-to-reach corners, use an old toothbrush or cotton balls to access and clean them.

Prevent the Buildup of Dirt

To avoid having to replace your windows more often than necessary, keep your barbecue grill at least five feet away from any of your home’s windows or sliding glass doors. Likewise, you should keep candles at a distance of several feet from windows to avoid dirtying them with smoke residue.

If your Orlando home’s current windows do not maintain a consistent level of cleanliness, speak with a window installation professional about replacing them with windows that do. To find out more about types of windows that are designed to deter the accumulation of dust, dirt, and dirty water, call Window World at (321) 282-6200.
