About Me

The Perfect Basement Apartment

When we got married, my husband and I moved into a lovely brick home. Because we were young and in debt, we would have benefited from being able to rent out a portion of our home to tenants. Unfortunately, our home didn’t include a basement apartment. If your basement is currently not being used, consider transforming it into a basement apartment. Before renting it out to tenants, you will need to make sure it meets certain specifications. For example, most local governments require basement apartments to contain a certain amount of windows. Usually, you will also have to ensure that your windows meet size requirements. On this blog, you will discover how to create the perfect basement apartment with the right windows.

How Applying Window Film Can Make A Big Difference At Your House

Great windows can make a house look incredibly inviting. Round windows add charm while firm, solidly square windows lend the kind of traditional structure that makes a house feel like a home. While aesthetics are certainly important, there are so many things you can try which will boost the functionality of your windows as well. Applying a thin layer of film to each window in your home is an easy activity that offers you some incredible advantages. If you want to enjoy some great benefits here are some of the reasons why your next residential project should involve window film.

Increase Your Privacy Even When The Curtains Are Open

There are some days where the sun is shining so gloriously that you can't wait to throw open the curtains and let that delicious sunlight into your home. While it feels great to be able to look outside and bask in the beauty of a great day you probably also value your privacy. At the same time that you're looking out someone else could be looking in. If you're not dressed properly, or your house hasn't been cleaned up yet you might not be in the mood to deal with prying eyes.

When you apply the window film to each pane of glass, it provides you with a nearly invisible barrier that will allow you to see what's outside with ease without having to sacrifice your privacy. You'll feel completely safe when you open your curtains because you know there is only a one-way viewing audience.

The Energy Savings Can Be Quite Substantial

Replacing the windows is widely known to be an effective way to lower your energy bill. However, what if you want the energy-saving benefits of window replacement but don't have the money for such a costly undertaking? Window film is a good alternative that can allow you to obtain the energy savings without having to come up with so much money to do so.

The window film is designed to repel heat. What this does is keep the excessive levels of heat from throwing off the balance of air that you already have in your house. Your cooling system can then work without using so much power, and this is where you stand to save cash.

If you aren't sure whether you can apply the window film properly you might want to let a residential window film installation professional handle the job. They can measure out the film with perfect precision and have it installed in a jiffy.
