Since the siding was going to be taken off the house, it was the perfect opportunity to replace the leaking windows. Not exactly in the budgeted plan, but the right time to do the job. We changed a couple of the window dimensions and looks, not exactly what I would recommend with only 3 months in the house, but its what we did. Here are some of the before pictures so you can appreciate the difference . . .
And here is the progress . . . we are sooooo excited!!!!
We also had a new roof put on . . . Pabco high wind shingles with a 40 year warranty! I just pray they never do fly off the roof. Once the siding is complete, the outside will be painted sage green with cream trim. Its going to look fantastic! The only downer is the bedroom windows were ordered incorrectly. They open vertically and not sideways. It looks fine and we must learn to live with them, but it just goes to show . . . always double check every detail with your contractor prior to any major purchases!!
All in all though, the face lift is doing loads of good.
