It’s time to purchase replacement windows for your La Habra home and you’re anxious to use the opportunity to give your home some added curb appeal.

We’ve put together a short checklist for you so you can get started on the right foot.

Map Out Your Exterior Surroundings

It’s important to remember that not all replacement window styles are the right choice for every home. You’ll want to choose a replacement window style that works with your unique exterior and interior design layout. This means creating an accurate exterior map that includes all pathways, outdoor furniture and plant life that you wouldn’t want obstructed by an open window. This also applies for patio spaces and front decks. Once you know the unique needs of your home you’ll be able to better determine which replacement window works best for your space.

Think About the Little Guys

Replacement windows are a great addition to any home, but if they aren’t properly planned they can be a major safety hazard as well. This is especially true in homes with small children or pets. You’ll want to take into account the little guys when shopping for your replacement windows and avoid any window styles where small fingers can easily be jammed, or styles that can be easily opened with added pressure. Take special consideration as well into the type of replacement windows you have installed onto second stories where safety is an even greater concern.

Check Your Real Estate Market
