Preventing Condensation, Stopping Drafts and Other Challenges With Windows

Windows are the eyes to a house's soul – if your windows are big and beautiful so too is your home, but they can also include a range of challenges as well. With sub par windows, you can look forward to a drafty home with high heating bills. Similarly, there are also moisture issues – for example, if you don't seal the space between your double panes securely enough, you will get a build up of condensation. Having lived in old houses and having helped choose the windows for new houses, I'm familiar with a range of challenges associated with windows. If you want tips and ideas, you've come to the right spot. Please, explore and enjoy.

3 Small Changes That Will Make A Big Impact During A Home Remodel


If you are in the process of remodeling the inside of your home, then you may think that gutting and remodeling the kitchen and bathroom are all that needs to be done. While having both of those rooms gutted and remodeled will definitely transform your space, there are actually a few small changes that you can make to your interior that will have a really big impact when the project is done. 

Replacement Doors

Brand-new interior doors will definitely make your entire interior space look more remodeled and put together. Depending on how many interior doors you need to replace, there may be a package deal that you can get that will save you a lot of money.

As soon as you have all of your replacement doors hung, you can then decide whether or not you want to keep them a white color or if you want to do something a bit trendier and have them painted an accent color like grey or even black. 

Door Hardware

In addition to getting brand-new replacement doors hung throughout your house, don't forget to do the hardware. Door hardware can really help to take the look of your new doors to a whole new level and bring them to life. With so many fun door hardware options that are available out there, you can choose what style best matches the rest of your remodel. For instance, if you have a midcentury vibe that you are trying to achieve, then you may want to go with some sleek door handles that are either a brushed gold or a black color. If you are going for something a bit more traditional, then going with round interior handles in polished gold or nickel may be the perfect way to go. 

New Molding Around the Doors

Once you have your brand-new doors hung, it's time to reconsider having new molding hung around them. Whether you go with a really thin molding that's a bit more modern or you have molding hung around your doors that is really detailed and intricate, this finishing touch will make your entire space look a lot more finished and put together. 

Remodeling a home can be really stressful, but once you are done with the process, you will see just how worth it the process was. If you want to learn a little bit more about replacement doors and other ways that you can spruce up your remodel, reach out to a contractor near you.
