Many great things in life come in pairs. Windows and doors are one of those things. Windows and doors provide important functions, both in terms of protection and style. Both are also prone to damage over many years of use, leading to warping, drafts, and difficult operation.

If you need to replace one, odds are good that you’ll need to replace the other.

So, if window replacements are on your mind, think about getting new doors too. You will be glad that you did. Replacing your windows and doors at the same time will:

Improve the Energy-Efficiency of Your Home.

Old windows and old doors are often drafty, or at the very least, lack the modern energy-saving advancements that new products offer. Replacing your windows and doors at the same time can save you hundreds of dollars a year on heating and cooling costs, especially if you choose ENERGY STAR rated products. It’s also important that you work with professional door and window installers, otherwise you won’t get the protection your home needs.

Reduce Remodeling Stress.

Home remodeling can be a pain. Your home feels invaded and you just want to get back to life as normal. Why go through this process twice when you can double up and get more done at once? Find a door and window company that provides the products and services you need in one place. Although you’ll have more going on at once, you will be glad to have both projects out of the way.

Upgrade Your Home’s Look.

Getting new windows without replacing your doors, or vice versa, can make you feel like something is missing. That’s because windows and doors work together to provide your home’s exterior with a beautiful and inviting look. Plus, it’s kind of fun to browse complimentary door and window features at the same time.

Save Money.

Remodeling can be expensive, but you might be able to save some money if your complete two projects at once. Talk with your remodeling company to see how they can provide you with the best deal possible for your window and door replacement.

When it comes to the efficiency and style of your home, windows and doors go a long way. Get the best of both—and enjoy a better remodeling experience—when you upgrade both at the same time!
