• Factors to Consider When Selecting the Perfect Entry Door

    Like it or not, your home’s front door will likely lead passersby to make assumptions about your personality. Your front door can also have a notable impact on the value of your home. If you are looking for the  ideal front entry door  for your home, consider the following factors.

    Zoning Codes

    Homeowners in most neighborhoods have few—if any—regulations to follow as far as front door design or color is concerned. Still, the first step you should take when choosing a new entry door is to see whether your choice is restricted by any zoning or homeowners association regulations.

    Design Preferences
    As owner, you deserve to have your personality shine through your home’s design in whatever way you like. If you have a favorite color or preferred material for your home’s entry door, let these preferences weigh heavily in your decision.

    Existing Exterior Features
    Your home’s style, the color of its siding, and your landscaping should also be considered when choosing a new entry door. Unless you want to renovate your home’s entire exterior to work around a specific door, you should choose a front door that works with your home’s exterior as it is.

    Another factor to take into account when choosing an entry door is the environment. Consider both the climate to which your front door will be exposed and the indirect impact your front door could have on the environment through energy lost from air leaks and poor insulation.

  • How to Deal with a Broken Window Lock

    A broken window lock is not the most serious home improvement issue a homeowner can face, but it can be unnerving and should be attended to promptly. There are a handful of ways in which a window lock can fail, and each can be handled in a different way.

    First, check to see if the parts of your window locking mechanisms are aligned correctly. If they are not, align the lock sashes with the window channel and try to lock it again. If this does not work, unlock the window and push the upper sash lock as far up as it will go and the lower sash lock toward the bottom of the window.

    For more information on fixing broken window locks, visit the Window World website. If none of the recommended fixes work on your window, or if you wish to have replacement windows installed in your Central Florida home, contact Window World of Orlando at (321) 282-6200.
