Builders looking to add a hardworking addition to the construction of a home’s exterior should consider opting for storm windows this April. While April showers bring May flowers, they can also bring a whole other host of problems — unpredictable weather shifts, insects, unsightly damage to exterior windows, and so on. Storm windows can increase the overall curb appearance of a home, protect from springtime thunderstorms, increase energy savings by reducing drafts, and provide a tight lock between your windows and your home’s exterior.
Exterior Storm Windows are Energy Efficient
The temperature in springtime throughout Maryland tends to be unpredictable. As the old saying goes, springtime can come in like a lion and out like a lamb. Due to these unpredictable temperature shifts, one evening can have chilly thunderstorms with the next day having an abundant amount of sunshine. This can result in homeowners potentially having to crank their heat one day and incorporate air conditioning the next. By installing storm windows, you can provide an extra layer of protection to keep your heating and cooling costs lower by sealing off drafts between a home and the outdoors.
Easy to Install
Something that surprises most builders and homeowners alike is that storm windows are relatively easy to install and maintain yearly. Picture-style storm windows can be straightforward to install, as long narrow windows with thumb latches on the bottom that attach to the exterior of a home’s basement window. You can remove these storm windows with relative ease or leave them on year-round. The choice is yours!
