A Garden and Outdoor Patio Go Hand-in-hand

I love to garden, and when my family moved into a new home, I was very excited at the thought of getting to plan a brand-new garden! We moved to a completely different climate, so there was a learning curve to finding out which flowers and plants would thrive in the new location. Thankfully, the project was a success, but I realized that our family didn't get to enjoy the beauty of our garden without an outdoor living space to lounge on in the backyard. We soon found a local contractor with amazing ideas on how we could turn out yard into a beautiful, outdoor oasis. I enjoyed helping him plan and watching him build our new backyard patio, and I actually learned a lot during the process. I am eager to share what I have learned with others on my new blog!

3 Things That Tell You It's Time For New Windows

If you want to make sure that your home is safe, secure, and energy efficient, you will need to take the time to inspect the quality of the existing windows and have them replaced as needed. Check out the following signs that you have a need for new window installation. This way, you will know when it is time to start looking for the best contractor to do the work.

Cracks Of Any Size Are Showing Up

Even if the crack is very small and it is not going all of the way through the glass, it is important you consider hiring a window installation expert to have the window replaced. This is because as the weather fluctuates, you will find that the crack can start to get a lot bigger, until it eventually becomes too large to ignore. Of course, at any point during that time, your window is no longer as strong as it once was and it will continue to weaken over time, making it easier for criminals to shatter in order to gain access to the inside of your home.

The Wind Is Able To Come Through

You might not have noticed this is a problem if you do not spend a lot of time sitting or laying in front of a bad window. Therefore, you will want to take a little bit of time checking out the condition of your windows on a nice windy day. If you are having trouble waiting for a windy day, you could always have a friend or family member stand outside while you use a hair dryer to see if they can feel anything coming through or around the window. If they can, then this is a sure sign that you need to hire someone for a window installation job. You will want to make sure that this is done as soon as possible because a bad window like that is surely causing your home to no longer be as energy efficient as it once was.

The Wood Is Splitting

If you have older windows with wood frames, you will need to have them replaced with newer ones as soon as you notice that the wood is cracking, chipping, or rotting. At that point, the window is no longer secure and it may not take much for the glass to fall to the floor or outside on the ground if the wood continues to fall apart.
