You’re excited about getting started on increasing your home’s value, and we get it! There are renovations to think about, DIY projects and color schemes to pick out, landscaping decisions to consider, and much more. This is not even mentioning the ever-practical concerns of improving your home’s safety and energy efficiency requirements.
Generally, if you’ve maintained your home to a reasonable standard, there’s nowhere to go but up. And for those ready to start redesigning their living space, renovations can be a combination of elements that enhance your current lifestyle while remaining practical for a resale later. And that’s just the long-run view.
Make a Plan
First, read these 5 things to consider before remodeling a kitchen. Ask yourself:
- How well does your kitchen function now?
- How do you use your kitchen?
- How much storage do you need?
- What kitchen style works for you?
- What is your budget?
After you’ve reviewed that list, you’re ready to move into the more difficult stuff.
Have you ever looked at your window and noticed condensation? Were you alarmed this was a problem with your windows? Then you might be happy to hear windows do not cause condensation.
Under certain conditions, condensation can occur both inside and outside your home but windows do not cause condensation. The source of Condensation, or “sweating,” on windows and mirrors inside a home is caused by humidity, or invisible water vapor, present in virtually all air.
When this water vapor comes in contact with a surface, which is at a temperature below what is called the “dew point,” the vapor turns to visible droplets of liquid or condenses on the cooler surface. This often happens to bathroom mirrors and walls after someone has taken a hot shower.
Condensation can also occur on windows during the winter if the inside humidity level is high enough. When it comes to condensation outside your home, it is simply a fact of nature. Exposed to certain conditions, like a clear night sky, still air, or high relative humidity, the exterior surface of the glass can radiate heat away from your home and into the night air, allowing the glass temperature to fall below the dew point of the ambient air—creating condensation.
Home improvement is a big deal for many homeowners – there are always things around the house that can get done or things that become something you hate over time. From painting to updating furniture, to even adding on to your home, the idea of home improvement has many faces, and sometimes it is hard to tell what you should do yourself, and what you should hire a professional for. Check out a few of our ideas below!
There is a lot around the home that is easy to get done yourself – especially if you just want to give things a little face-lift. Even doing a pretty big bathroom update can be relatively easy if you learn the way to do everything right! Today’s information age has made DIY even more feasible than ever before – you can pop online and watch endless videos on how to do something (or how not to do something, if you want a laugh as well as a lesson), and be able to become a pseudo pro in no time.
Does it cost an arm and a leg to heat your home in the winter and cool it in the summer? It shouldn’t! It’s time to talk about upgrading to new energy efficient windows.
Do you need new windows?
If your home feels drafty, it might be time to upgrade your windows. Drafty windows let in outside air making it nearly impossible to regulate the temperature inside of your home. Leaky or drafty windows can also let in excess moisture making your home susceptible to mold, mildew, and water damage.

A house in South Bethany and its architect and builder have won a 2017 Integrity Windows and Doors Red Diamond Achiever Award award for their work on the house in the annual competition.
Architect Scott Edmonston of SEA Studio Architects and Shay Gallo of Shay Gallo Construction Inc. won the award for their work with the Integrity windows and doors from Marvin.
“I think Integrity likes modern architecture,” Edmonston said. “So they wanted to recognize some houses like this one that had a little different take on architecture.”
Many home owners and builders ask if we sell Andersen Windows and Doors. We do not. We sell a great alternative to Andersen Windows and Doors; Marvin Windows and Doors. Anderson is an energy efficient brand and has been making windows and doors for builders since 1903. This makes them one of the oldest and well-recognized construction brands on the market. However, Atlantic Millwork & Cabinetry offers many excellent alternatives such as Marvin, Integrity, Alliance, Simonton, and JeldWen. Our most recognizable alternative brand is Marvin Family of Brands.
Marvin Family of Brands
Marvin Family of Brands offers two unique brands, Marvin and Integrity by Marvin, which offer customizable products for every project. Both are the perfect choice when you need to replace your old Andersen products or when you are looking to upgrade to a higher quality brand. Marvin products are all built to order, allowing you to fully customize your Marvin window to fit your old window space perfectly. This saves you the time and money it would take to resize a window or door space to fit another brand. Check out our products by Atlantic Millwork & Cabinetry.
