Remember when I told you about my little mishap about trying to reseal our windows for winter?
And remember how instead of resealing them, I actually ended up breaking the first window?
And remember also how we had to take a little trip to Home Depot to spend waaay more money than we originally planned on spending?
My goal was to keep the dirt on the OUTSIDE of the windows….
…and the cobwebs from forming around every window corner.
Well, today we finally got our new windows installed… and let me just say… I love love LOVE them
The guys that installed our windows also installed our doors back in June, and they are awesome! They do a great job and the clean up job was a definite plus.
Here are our aluminum windows in the backyard that were original to the house when it was built in 1978. They were nasty, loose and quite ugly.
But our new white windows (with screens ) are much prettier. See? No more vintage silver casing and we can even open our windows now without fearing the entire fly population will end up in our house.
We replaced the master bedroom and bathroom windows (above), the dining room window (below) and the kitchen window (two below).
And no more broken window!!
We decided not to replace the front two windows (the office and the guest room) because they were the largest and most expensive. Our main concern at this point were the windows that were the worst off and most used. But that’s not to say that if Home Depot puts their windows back on sale and the government decides to continue the energy efficient rebate, we won’t replace these windows later on. We know that replacing the two front windows in the future will greatly affect the value of our house and will help with electric and gas bills.
So this week or sometime this weekend, I will be painting the new trim on the inside of the windows and will repaint the insides of the window areas to cover up old paint that previous owners didn’t cover up. And I will probably open all our windows every day to get some fresh air in the house (the screens might be my favorite part)!
