Planning Window, Door, & Patio Renovations


Before finalizing your home renovation plans for 2015, it is important that you take a moment to do some research and observe your home to ensure that you have covered all the bases. Whether you are thinking about patio doors, entry doors, or windows, consider the following:


§  While it is raining, grab an umbrella and take a moment to see how the water flows over and through your property. This is the most obvious way to determine problem areas because you can see where water pools on your patio and other hardscapes surrounding your home. If you find areas where water pools excessively, you will need to incorporate a drainage system into your renovation plans.

§  Additionally, analyzing how much rain hits the windows and doors on each elevation of the house when it is raining can also help you avoid future problems and determine which type of window (solid wood, wood clad with aluminum, vinyl, all aluminum, etc.).

§  Most importantly, during all winter storms this winter season make sure to identify any areas of vulnerability in your home so that you can repair them before the next rainy season arrives. This means looking at how well your entry doors, patio doors, and windows withstand high winds, rain, and whatever else Mother Nature might throw your way.
