The Best Alternative To Window Replacement For Conforming To Building Codes
If you live in Denver, you are probably renovating your home right now. With single-family home inventory at an all-time low last year, and looking to be even lower in 2018, more people are choosing to stay in their homes and remodel, rather than buy a new already upgraded home. The issue with renovating, however, is there are a lot of unplanned for areas of repair, added expenses and issues that arise as you are doing the work. The job is never as easy as it seems and sometimes it seems like you just keep burning money. This type of situation can add up to a bad financial situation, continually pushed out end dates and a blown budget. At Denver Home Window Tinting, we don’t have the solution to every issue that will arise with your Denver home remodel but, we do have a fast and inexpensive work around to bringing old, potentially dangerous windows, up to code and that solution is safety and security window film.
Why Window Film Will Work To Get The Windows Of Your Denver Home Up To Code
As you get further along into your home remodel, you will need to have an inspector look at your project and let you know what you need to do to conform to any building codes. Codes change often and if your home hasn’t been updated in awhile, there is likely a laundry list of updates to fit new codes. It is actually surprising how many little (and big) things you need to do to get your remodel up to code. One that could throw you for a loop is–old, out of code, plate glass windows because these windows are often in difficult places to remove and require custom glass replacement due to their often irregular shape. This also happens to be where safety and security window films excel! For windows like these: at the bottom of stairwells, in bathrooms and wet areas, sliding glass doors, and very large windows, safety and security film is the least expensive and easiest solution to bring your home up to building codes. This is not only because installing film is easier than replacing a window but also because the cost is much lower as well. As it is, this simple workaround that is perfectly acceptable to building inspectors and ultra-friendly on your remodel budget–is window film. The best part is, a security film window installer, like Denver Home Window Tinting, can have all your windows done in one day, so your remodel not only comes in under budget but right on time as well!
