We got new windows and doors on Wednesday. We have lived in our house for a little over 2 years. We knew almost immediately that all 9 windows, the front door, the back door and both storm doors were going to have to be replaced. Our first winter told us we would need them sooner rather than later so we started savings up.
Here’s what we were working with:
The new windows and doors are now in. The windows are ordinary, vinyl, double hung replacement windows. The front and back doors are plain steel doors with white storm doors. They are wonderful but I am not posting any pictures because the clean newness really emphasizes the fact that now we need siding (or at the very least a new paint job) and the house looks kind of odd.
The first night we had them a big storm blew in with a lot of thunder and lightning. We had the windows open at first so the thunder was pretty loud. As the wind picked up, we closed the windows and we were amazed at how hard it was to hear the lightning. We are also pleased to report that the new windows block all the squawking from the birds across the street.
