You may have even made some for yourself, whether it be to get to the gym more often or to add more green in your diet. Resolutions are for self improvement, so why not set resolutions for your home to improve the overall look, quality, and potential value. Here are 5 New Year’s resolutions to think about for your home!

Protect your home against the cold weather

Winter weather can take a toll on your home. Make sure your home is prepared for the chilly temperatures. You can do this by sealing up cracks, adding needed insulation, and making sure your windows are up to standard. If window repairs are needed, make sure to get them repaired before it’s too late. Call the experts at Glass Express for all your window repair needs.

Get rid of clutter

This is one we all often dread. We find ourselves always saying “but what if I need this one day.” Take the time to decide what you really need and what you could get rid of. Even take the time to donate unwanted goods to charity. Once your home is free of clutter and chaos, it will look better than ever before!

Redo your kitchen or bathrooms

Updating your kitchen and bathrooms can add an enormous amount of value to a home. At Glass Express, we offer custom countertops to turn a rather dull kitchen into a statement room. As well, we are experts in installing custom mirrors to greatly improve your bathroom.

Become more environmentally conscious

In today’s world, it’s becoming more and more important to be conscious of our environmental footprint. There are a variety of simple ways you can work towards going green. For example, start recycling more. Sign up for your local recycling pick-up, or set out a bin in the garage and take a weekly trip to the recycling center. Other ideas include: take shorter showers, fix dripping faucets, purchase energy efficient light bulbs, and turn down your home’s thermostat.

Ensure a safe home

If you don’t already, make sure to purchase a carbon monoxide detector. If you do, make sure to replace the batteries with new ones as well as those in your fire detectors. If you have a chimney, make sure to get it inspected and cleaned. If you have an older home, it would be a good idea to test for lead paint which can cause serious harm.

Don’t neglect your house when going into the new year. Along with your own, set reasonable resolutions for your home to improve safety and value. Call the experts at Glass Express today for a FREE quote on all your window improvement needs!

It’s that time of year again…time to embrace your New Year’s resolutions to be a better you. While you typically think of resolutions as improving your health, finances or getting organized, try out something new for 2016, update your home and decrease your energy bill (which can also help your financial resolution).

New windows can kickstart your 2016 and leave you with lower energy bills, more light, and updated design. Check out why new windows should be on your 2016 resolution list.

Lower Energy Cost

If saving more and spending less is one of your resolutions, then getting new windows can help you reach your goal. Insulated windows keep extreme temperatures outside which reduces adjustments to your heating and cooling system.

Light

Natural light can drastically change any room in your home. Newer windows have larger glass to allow more light into your home and can make your home appear brighter, more welcoming, and comfortable.

Updated Design

Not only can new windows bring in more natural light to change a room, they can also update your home to fit your particular style. Windows can be a great, simple way to add a facelift to your home.

Do you have loud neighbors, or live next to a busy street? If the noise outside is keeping you up at night consider replacement windows to reduce outside noise.

Although new windows is not what you typically think of when you make your New Year’s resolutions, they can be a great way to start your year and help meet your other resolutions along the way. Call your experts at Glass Express to get started today!
