Windows provide our homes with light, warmth, and beauty. They make us feel less confined and help bring the beauty of the outside in. Although windows are such an important part of our homes, homeowners often feel overwhelmed when it comes to window replacement.
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Universal Windows Direct. All opinions are 100% mine.
We all have a long list of home improvement projects, but we should value windows higher than we do.
Window Replacement is an Investment that will Pay Off
Since your home is most likely your biggest investment, replacing old windows should be at the top of your list of projects. This wise investment will keep your family and possessions safe, reduce your energy costs, allow you to enjoy the beauty of the landscape surrounding your home, and increase your home’s value.
When we bought our home, we knew several of the windows needed replacing. The seals were broken, they were ugly and hard to see through, and there was a lot of air seeping in – and out.
Replacing Windows with Universal Windows Direct
We replaced seven windows in our home with Universal Windows Direct – three in our boys’ bedroom, three in their bathroom, and one in our main bathroom.
The process began with a UWD representative who came over and talked me through exactly what our needs and wants were. They come to you so you can discuss everything in the comfort of your home.
We discussed color selections, and he provided me with a detailed training session on all UWD has to offer in terms of windows and why we should select them for our window replacement.
We discussed everything from the window frame material to the window replacement cost which includes windows’ cost, installation costs, and warranties. UWD also replaces entry doors and patio doors.
Once I had made all the selection decisions, someone from UWD returned to measure all the windows so they could order our custom windows. He sent the measurements in, and the windows were ordered to be custom-made for our home.
Several months later, the windows were in, and the install took place.
The window installers were efficient and worked hard to make the process as easy as possible for our family. It was fascinating to watch them remove the old window frames and replace them with the new UWD windows.
Due to the supply chain shortages, the entire process was slower than normal. The windows came in first, but we did have to wait a bit longer for items like the window cranks and screens.
The new windows from Universal Windows Direct are so much nicer than those we had before. We can actually see through the windows, and we don’t have to worry about cold or hot air seeping in – or out! It’s nice feeling confident about the energy efficiency of our windows going into winter.
I love how the windows open to allow for easy cleaning. Before, I had to step out on our roof overhang to clean the exterior of the windows.
