Windows are the eyes to the house

windowsYou have no doubt heard that quote that eyes are the windows to the soul. What does that mean? It means that eyes provide a look inside the soul. A person’s eyes usually convey a lot of emotion and will give a glimpse into what it is like to be that person or live their life. The idea of looking into someone’s soul means getting an intimate look at their lives. If you were to attribute this analogy to real windows, it implies that windows are the eyes into a house, and the house is the soul of a family. When you look into a window, you can see a lot. Decor, art, furniture and style, all of which conveys something about the personality of the people who live there. In the same way that a beautiful eye draws attention and curiosity to the soul inside the person, a beautiful window draws attention and curiosity to the inside of a house.

Similarly, many people notice eyes first on another human being. This is generally true for houses as well. Windows that are well kept, clean and customized to a home will increase the perceived value of a home. If your home has windows that look cheap, flimsy, damaged or dirty, it will devalue the rest of your house. If this can’t be rectified by simply cleaning the windows, it may be worth it to look into replacement windows for your home. Though it is an initial investment, it will be a much better investment in the long run because with good quality windows, you won’t have to spend nearly as much in continued repairs and replacements of low quality windows. Repairing low quality windows again and again adds up in cost and can ultimately end up costing you thousands of dollars.

In addition, investing in professional window installation is another way to ensure longevity of your windows. If windows are installed incorrectly, you risk them shattering, warping, being blown out by wind, of letting in condensation and rain. All of these things will wear your windows down quickly, meaning you will need to repair and replace them more often. Wouldn’t you rather spend your money on other things like vacations, dinners out, gifts for your family or treats for yourself instead of pouring money into costly home repairs?

Since windows provide a look into the personality of a home, portraying your home as clean, put together and welcoming is important. With a home that gives off the vibe of being clean, put together and welcoming, your friends and family will always want to come over. The way your house looks says a lot about you and your life, so with a house that looks immaculate, it will reflect well on you and make you happy and proud of the home you’ve created. Increased value to your home as well as less money spent on repairs will not only save you money, but actually make you money in the long run. This is why windows are one of the most important aspects of your home to maintain.
