Picking the Perfect Patio Door

If you want to make sure that your patio serves as a functional extension of your home’s living space, you will need to pick the perfect patio door. Whether you choose a sliding door, French door, or other type of replacement door, you will need to make sure that your door is both functional and stylish. The right patio door can provide a gateway to your beautiful backyard and outdoor entertaining area. Some key steps to take when you are picking a patio door include:

Compare Door Styles

Swinging and sliding doors are among the most popular door styles that are used for patios. If you want to save room in the areas around your patio, a sliding door may provide you with the best functionality. Swinging doors, by contrast, can add elegance and appeal to a patio installation.

Research Door Materials

Your door contractor can provide you with dozens of different materials for your sliding door. Before you settle on a door for your installation, you will need to figure out what type of door material will be suited to your needs. A vinyl patio door will provide you with exceptional protection against wind and water damage. If you are seeking a classic look for your patio door, you may prefer natural wood materials.

Evaluate Hardware and Color Options

As you are placing the finishing touches on your patio door installation, you will find that the color and hardware that you select for your new door will help to echo the overall style of your home. Modern homes, for instance, look great with contemporary door finishes that are streamlined and sleek. A classic home may look better with a patio door that has been adorned with elaborate hardware.

To get started on your sliding door installation, contact the team at Window World by calling (407) 734-2996. Along with new window installation near Orlando, we also offer replacement door services for patios and other exterior spaces. Our team will help you choose the best patio door for your property.

Tips for Maintaining Your Vinyl Siding

Vinyl siding can provide your home with charm, durability, and protection from extreme weather conditions. If you are scheduling a window replacement with a company that offers siding, do not hesitate to ask about your vinyl siding options. Once your new siding has been installed, your home will have renewed appeal and value. To help you keep your vinyl siding looking brand new, here are some essential maintenance tips.

Wash Annually

Like any other part of your home that is exposed to the elements, your vinyl siding will experience wear and tear over time. To keep your siding looking great, you will need to take the time to wash it once a year. If you want to achieve the deepest possible clean on your siding, use a combination of mild detergent and water.

Avoid Accidental Damage

As you are going about your daily routine, you may operate heavy equipment right next to your vinyl siding. Your household car, lawnmower, or other motorized vehicles can cause significant damage to your household siding if they happen to collide with your home’s exterior. In order to protect your siding from breaking down more quickly than you had anticipated, take extra care to avoid knocking into your new siding installation.

Perform Regular Inspections

One of your major responsibilities as a homeowner is to inspect the major components of your house several times a year. When you schedule a roof inspection or other type of inspection service for your property, consider having your contractor take a look at the quality and condition of your siding. During a routine inspection, your contractor may be able to detect small issues that have the potential to become major problems.

When you take the time to inspect, protect, and clean your siding, you can rest assured that it is being maintained correctly. At Window World, we can provide you with vinyl siding and window treatments near Orlando. To hear all about our quality installation services, give us a call at (407) 734-2996.

Why You Should Leave Window Installation to the Pros

A broken window leaves your home vulnerable to the weather as well as criminals, so it’s best to get a replacement window immediately. If you’re thinking about installing it yourself, you might want to consider the benefits of going with a trusted company instead. Here’s why you should leave window installation to the professionals.

No matter what kind of window you choose, the way you install it will have a serious effect on how it stands up over time. That’s one reason you should always call the professionals to have your windows installed. This isn’t a job for even the handier homeowners, so make sure the job is done properly the first time. Windows that are installed incorrectly can take away from your efficiency as well as your curb appeal, and they’ll likely require repairs in the future. When you work with the professionals, it should be a while before you have to think about repair or replacement.

When you need a replacement window in Orlando, don’t forget to call Window World at (407) 734-2996. We can help you with everything from window accents to new windows for your garage door. Feel free to look through our website to learn all about our services.

Choosing Window Treatments for Bay Windows

Bay windows give you the opportunity to soak up a beautiful view, and they can be dressed up in quite a few different ways. When selecting window treatments, consider lighting and privacy in addition to cosmetics. Watch this video on choosing window treatments for bay windows.

Your bay windows might be beautiful as they are, but you can customize them to fit your style. Roller blinds are versatile in that they look great when they’re all at the same or different levels. Blinds and bold curtains can create a dramatic look, while shutters are always a classic option.

Window World specializes in garage doors and window treatments near Orlando, and we’d be happy to help you find the right treatment for your window. Please check out our website or give us a call at (407) 734-2996 to find out how we can help you.

Signs That Now Is the Time to Replace Your Windows

Many factors will influence how long your windows last, and you might like to change them sooner than other people would. However, there are a few indicators that you need a replacement window. Continue reading to learn about signs that now is the time to replace your windows.

You Notice Cracks

A small crack isn’t always a cause for concern, but a large crack that you’re already worried about will probably continue to grow. Rather than waiting for that to happen, consider a replacement window. Whether the crack is in a pane or the fixture itself, it means that your window is weakening. This makes you and your family more vulnerable to criminals who would try to break into your home, and it can also let in wind, rain, and snow. Talk to your window replacement professional when you notice cracks so you can take care of the problem.

Panes Are Missing

A missing window pane will sabotage your home’s efficiency by letting outside air in. This means your HVAC units will have to work harder to keep your home comfortable, which means you’ll pay more for your energy bills. You might also find pests like insects and rodents getting into your house. Mice, rats, and bugs can spread disease and destroy your property. A broken window pane might also be all it takes for a burglar to gain access to your home and steal your belongings.

Your Style Has Changed

Your windows, doors, and siding all contribute to your curb appeal, but what happens if you don’t have the same taste you had when you bought your place? A replacement window might be all you need to achieve the look you’re going for. The experts can help you find a replacement window that matches your current taste and can revive your home’s design.

If you’re looking for replacement windows in Orlando, look no further than Window World. Our company is proud to offer new windows for your patio doors, as well as bay windows that allow you to enjoy the view. Look at our website or call us at (407) 734-2996 for details.

Factors to Consider When Choosing a New Entry Door

Your entry door is the barrier between the interior and exterior of your house, and it serves multiple purposes. Your sliding door impacts both the curb appeal and security of your home, so you’ll want to ensure that it is installed properly. Read on for a closer look at factors to consider when choosing a new entry door.

Aesthetic Appeal

An entry door, by definition, is the door that you use to make your way inside a home or building. If you want your building to look its best and impress the people who walk up to come inside, you should put some thought into what your door looks like. A sliding door is a popular choice for back porches, and it can be a great way to let light into the kitchen or living room while giving yourself access to your outside living area. The right window treatments can give your sliding door the ideal cosmetic appeal from both inside and outside of the house.

Practicality

Your entry door should look nice, but it should also be functional. A nice-looking replacement window can boost your curb appeal, but it won’t help you as much if it’s not optimally functional. The same goes for your entry door. Some people don’t put much thought into the hardware that they pair with their sliding doors. Pick hardware that makes it easy to operate your door, not just hardware that might look nice from a distance.

Installation Company

Whether you go for a glass sliding door or a regal wooden door, you should have the professionals install it. In addition to the time you’ll save by working with the professionals, you’ll get to rest easy knowing that your door will be as efficient as it can be.

Are you in the market for a new door in Orlando? Don’t wait to call Window World at (407) 734-2996. It’s our job to help you find the best window treatments and garage doors for your needs. You can learn all about our services by visiting our website or stopping by to see us.

Protecting Your Windows from Florida's Hurricanes

For many Florida residents, it doesn’t take long to realize the threat that hurricanes can pose to their property. If you live in an area prone to severe storms and wonder what you can do to protect your home, then consider investing in impact replacement windows.

Impact windows are those that are specifically designed to withstand the powerful storms that can ravage coastal areas. By installing durable impact windows in your home, you can reduce the chances of needing window replacement after a severe storm. Also, choosing windows that are less likely to shatter in a hurricane can help protect your home and furnishings from water damage.

If you’re searching for new windows in Orlando that can help protect your property during storm season, then look no further than Window World, where we offer high-performance, impact replacement windows from Associated Materials, Inc. Call (407) 734-2996 today to schedule your no-obligation in-home estimate.

Tips for Choosing the Right Siding Color

Vinyl siding can offer function and protection for your home, but it can also be used to add color and style to the structure’s exterior. If you’re planning to install vinyl siding, then watch this video for tips on choosing the right color for your home.

The first thing to consider when selecting a siding color is whether it will be used to cover accent areas, or if it will function as a full covering for the house. For accent siding, neutral colors like cream, beige, white, and off-white tend to be best. Neutral colors are also a smart option for siding that will cover an entire home that you plan to sell in the future.

Window World offers maintenance-free, insulated, and reinforced options for vinyl siding in Orlando. Please call (407) 734-2996 to learn how our vinyl siding products can improve the look of your home.

The Homeowner's Guide to Window Styles

The types of windows that you choose can offer various levels of function and have a dramatic effect on your home’s appearance. For these reasons, you can benefit from familiarizing yourself with window varieties before making a selection. If you’re planning to upgrade your home with new windows, then continue reading for a guide to common window styles.

Double Hung

Double hung windows have 2 sashes, both of which can slide up and down vertically. This window type offers great function due to its ability to provide efficient ventilation. These windows are often used in colonial, Victorian, and Cape Cod style homes.

Bay and Bow

If you want windows that maximize the amount of light that can enter a room and your view of the outside, then consider bay and bow windows. These varieties extend outward and are well-suited to many architectural styles.

Casement

If you’re looking for windows that support your home’s modern theme, then casement windows may be the best option. These windows tend to be tall and narrow, and they work just like a door by having hinges on one side and a sash that swings outward.

Awning

Awning windows have a single sash and can either have hinges at the bottom and swing downward or be hinged at the top and swing upward. When adorned with muntins, this type of window takes on a classic look. However, unadorned awning windows can appear sleek and contemporary.

Sliding

Functioning much like a sliding patio door, versatile sliding windows have a single sash that slides open horizontally.

Garden

Garden windows add character to a room, featuring a protruding design and a flat surface where items can be placed. These windows are a favorite for kitchens because of the natural light they let in and the space they provide for potted herbs or flowers.

At Window World, we offer a broad array of replacement windows in Orlando, making it easy for you to choose a style that suits your preferences. If you would like more information about our products, then give us a call today at (407) 734-2996.
