You need to think about a lot of different factors when you prepare for a hurricane, from rising water to the effects of wind and rain. One effective way of protecting yourself is choosing the right types of windows. Watch this video to learn about your hurricane protection options.
A hurricane can do some real damage to your building, and the damage can come in different ways. Hurricanes bring strong winds, heavy rains, and rising water levels, all of which can take a toll on homes and businesses. Hurricane windows and reinforced doors can help with damage control. Stronger windows and doors are less likely to break due to projectiles that are swept up, keeping your family or employees safe.
Certain types of windows near Orlando can protect your house or business from a hurricane, and Window World can help you find them . Call (407) 734-2996 if you need replacement doors or new window treatments.
Whether you’re in need of a sliding door or a new door for your garage, you should think about the materials that go into the product. Wood, steel, and fiberglass doors have different advantages and drawbacks, and you should know about them before you make a purchase. Continue reading for a quick comparison of some different entry door materials.
Your entry door is probably the first door your guests will see up-close when they arrive at your house, so you’ll want it to look great. If you are comfortable committing to the maintenance requirements and want your door to stand out, wood might be the choice for you. Although you’ll have to put some work into it to keep it from rotting or warping, a wooden door comes with a certain type of beauty that other materials have a hard time replicating. Wood is also warm to the touch, and it tends to be easy to fix up scratches on the door.
As beautiful as wood is, it’s not the most energy-efficient choice and it is susceptible to a number of problems. Steel doesn’t require nearly as much maintenance as wood, and it’s more affordable as well. Steel doors are energy-efficient, good at insulating your space, and excellent for security. On the other hand, you have to watch out for scratches, dents, and rust with this kind of door.
Of all the materials that can go into a door, fiberglass may have the fewest drawbacks. It’s easy to maintain, it holds up against dents and scratches, and it’s not vulnerable to rust or deterioration. It’s also energy-efficient like steel, but it can be painted to change the style. Fiberglass doors are secure, they won’t warp, and they offer more insulation than wood.
If you’re not sure which material to choose for your new door in Orlando, contact Window World. We’d be happy to help you find the right vinyl siding or sliding door for your needs. Call us today at (407) 734-2996 to learn more about us.
It’s your job to keep your house in shape and maintain your home’s curb appeal, and understanding your soffits and fascias will come in handy. Understanding what makes your window treatments, roof, and exterior of your home attractive helps you build up your curb appeal. Here’s a homeowner’s guide to soffits and fascias.
What You Need to Know
Soffit and fascia aren’t necessarily terms that every homeowner knows, although it would do them well to learn about them. The words soffit and fascia are used to describe two separate—although similar and linked—elements of the exterior of the house. When you look at your house from the street, the soffit may be the first thing you see. This is a board that hangs below the roof and its fascia, and it’s often ventilated. The fascia board follows the lower edge of the roof and helps to support the lower row of roof tiles and the gutter system.
Who You Can Work With
If you have a problem with your soffits or fascias, you should call the professionals instead of trying to resolve the issue by yourself. Your soffits and fascias can contribute to your curb appeal just as much as your window treatments and sliding doors can, so it pays to take care of them. Your door and window professionals may be able to help you determine what’s wrong with your soffits and fascias and restore your curb appeal.
How to Recognize Problems
Take a moment to walk out to the curb and look back at your home or workplace when you can. Do you notice any deterioration? Since soffits and fascias are typically noticeable from the curb, make sure they’re always in shape. A problem with your soffits may affect your ventilation, so keep that in mind if your energy bills are fluctuating.
