Window Treatments Ideas to Implement In Your Home
Since 1995, people have started to buy instead of normal wooden windows, PVC windows, meant to keep the temperature stable in the house, without any losses of temperature during the winter. Though, even if we’re talking about PVS with 4 mm thick glass or normal windows, after a while, the glass needs to be treated in order to look good again and to maintain its “health” for a longer period.
As you know, once a things gets broken, if it is not repaired, it will only deteriorate more and more. Now, in the next following lines you can read some window treatment ideas that’ll keep your windows working properly and good looking.
Once in a while, check the humidity from your home. If it’s too big, then water might be infiltrated in the walls, fact that will affect the comfort of your home. As well, if we’re talking about wooden windows, the frame will also be destroyed, as water can easily infiltrate into the walls too.
As well, if you have problems with the condensation, it is recommended to buy low-e glass, especially if you have windows from PVC. Low-e glass is a normal glass that was treated with a layer of particles that will repel the water particles. This will eliminate the condensation from your homes for good, but only if the humidity isn’t too high and only if the room/house is properly ventilated.
Now, the only thing concerning the low-e glass is the fact that the interior part of the glass can’t be decorated with a certain model, as it is mandatory for the layer of particles to stay on a straight area. Though, in most of the cases, there are 2 layers of glass. And if one of them is low-e, then the other one can take several models – in fact, you can even personalize them, of course, only if you pay for this service – without any restriction.
In the case of the normal windows – with a wooden frame -, there aren’t too many things to be done. Yet, in order to maintain their condition as much as possible, it is mandatory for the owners of the house to paint them from time to time with a water-resistant paint, paint that will protect against the corrosive actions of the water. Also, changing the seals of the glass might be of a real help too, especially if that window stays opened a long period of time.
