Back in May, we finally decided to get new windows and doors in our house, as they were not insulating very well anymore and basically looked like crap. All our windows you had to open up one pane at a time and at one time or another, someone had put nails in the window runners as a “lock” for the windows. Needless to say, they were overdue to be replaced.
And the same with the doors. Whoever had put the front door in did a whack job of it and around the back door, you could see sunlight. No wonder our house didn’t hold heat properly.
Keith looked into replacing all the main floor windows (1 big picture, 3 bedroom, 1 kitchen), the front door and the back door with a sidelight. And then we found out that Manitoba Hydro has a program in which you can borrow up to $7,500 from them for windows and doors and then they add it onto your hydro bill and have up to 5 years to pay it off. And we qualified for it!
So we got the guys from A.H. Glass to come in and replace them for us. Took a good part of the day, but it looks way better!
I didn't take any before photos of what my windows/doors used to look like, but here's some new ones!
New front door!!
