About Me

Hiring and Communicating with a Home Cleaning Service

Thanks for stopping by my website. My name is Annabelle Collins. My husband and I live in a large house with our two teenage children. We’re fortunate in that we’re able to have a cleaning service come and clean on a weekly basis. In the past, I found that it was difficult for me to exert myself when it came to hiring and communicating with our cleaning service. I’ve never been very authoritative, and that shone through in a not good way. I wanted things to be done in a certain way, but found it difficult to ask for what I wanted. I have come to realize that in order for the service to do the job I want to be done, I have to ask for it to happen. I doubt that I’m alone in the fact that this is difficult, and want to share my experience and growth.

How to Know It's Time for Window Replacements

by Vicki Burns

Windows are a very important part of your home. Much like your roof, they help to protect your home and keep elements outside where they belong. Windows won't last forever and there may come a time when you need to update your windows and invest in window replacements. You may be wondering how to tell when that time has come. Keep reading to better understand the warning signs that point to the need for new windows in your house:

You Notice a Draft

If you're noticing a draft in the rooms in your home and the draft is more noticeable as you get closer to your windows, then it's probably time for replacement windows. The more you allow the window to come into your home through your old windows, the more uncomfortable your house will become and the more energy you will waste.

Your Energy Bills Keep Getting Higher

No one likes a high energy bill. It can make for a stressful financial situation and it also means that energy usage is high. If you want to cut down on your energy usage, you may want to contact a windows replacement company. Often, high energy bills are a sign of a draft and may mean that your current windows aren't doing their job fully because they're old and worn. 

All Noises Outside Sound Loud

When windows are worn and old, it's easier for sound to carry inside of a home. If you're noticing that the sounds outside are loud, no matter what the sound is and the time of day, then it may be time to replace your windows.

You See Damage

If you're noticing physical damage, that's also a warning sign that it's time to replace your windows. This not only looks unsightly, but it can lead to more serious problems, such as moisture and water getting into your home. Investing in new windows is a good way to fix that problem. Your whole home will look better with brand new windows and you'll feel better knowing that your windows are safe and secure.

If you're not sure how old your windows are and you want to have someone come take a look to see if it's time for replacements, reach out to a window replacement company. They can do a thorough job to make your windows look and function better. Contact a window replacement service to get a quote for new windows.
