Have you ever heard this? “Hey! You make a better door than a window!” If you’re over the age of 30, you probably have, especially if you’ve ever accidentally stood in front of the television while your dad was trying to watch the Eagles–Steelers game. Well, if you have a window that would be much better as a sliding glass door or French door in Harrisburg, it may be time for some remodeling.
The beautiful thing about your home is that it is yours. You can do anything you want with it–well, as long as Tom Lesser at the Harrisburg Code Enforcement Office says it’s okay. And one of the most cost-effective remodeling jobs you can do for your Pennsylvania home is to turn a window into a door.
Doors offer almost everything a window can offer, and more.
- Unless you’re a certain groundhog, you’re probably desperate to see the Pennsylvania sunlight from time to time. If you need a bit more light in your home, a door can let in much more than a window.
- If you want to be able to open the house up and let lots of air in, a door wins every time.
- If you want to have access to an area of your yard, walking out a door is way easier than climbing out the window. Not to mention you look less guilty to the Harrisburg Bureau of Police.
- If you want to be able to bring large pieces of furniture into your home, new French doors will open up a giant space to move through. Your window can’t compete with that.
But, putting in a door can create some problems if it is not installed professionally.
- A certified installer will make sure that your new doors will be sealed properly, so that you can take full advantage of the latest in energy efficiency. Especially in Pennsylvania where the winter chill can range from uncomfortable to brutal at the drop of a hat.
- Unless you’re taking a ride on the Pride of the Susquehanna Riverboat, you really don’t want to feel a lot of moisture when you’re sitting indoors. A professional will make sure everything is plumb and that there is no way for moisture to get in and cause warping or mold.
