Making Your Home a Refuge

From construction jargon, home improvement professionals may use the phrase "building envelope." The building envelope refers to all the things that go between the outer bricks and the rooms inside which includes windows, doors, roofs, insulation, and fenestrations (all the openings of the home). The building envelope works to provide ways to enter and leave, ventilate and insulate the home. Let's consider how windows and doors can help make your home a refuge from the elements.

So, why think about your home's building envelope? Your home's structure needs to protect its inhabitants from the heat, cold, and moisture. Further, a huge portion of heating and cooling costs are lost through air leaks. To "seal the envelope," additional sealing and insulation can help lessen energy leakage. The openings of windows and doors can provide opportunities for such losses. Ensuring a proper fit of windows and doors can significantly reduce energy losses. Products meeting the Energy Star rating can mean big energy savings with professional installation.

Customer Review: "Purchased all new windows for home - we were pleased with entire process and on installation day the 3 installers were courteous and efficient, and did a great job cleaning up all debris both inside of the home and out. As a realtor, I would not hesitate to recommend to clients and others - comes with Lifetime Limited Warranty as well." - Mari G.

Question:  What's the best way to clean glass? ~ Thanks, C. Hart
 
Mike's Reply: 
Thanks for your question. Here is a list of glass cleaning "Do's" and "Don't's" to get your windows spotless.

Glass Cleaning Do's
·         DO clean glass with a mixture of mild dish soap and water.
·         DO rinse completely with clear water, then wipe dry with a soft cloth to avoid water spots.
·         DO clean screens by first removing, then washing on a flat, clean surface with mild soap and water and a soft brush. Rinse, wipe dry and reinstall.

Glass Cleaning Don'ts
·         DON'T wash glass in direct sunlight.
·         DON'T use petroleum-based cleaners, or caustic chemicals on your glass.
·         DON'T use a razor blade, putty knife or abrasive pad to clean the glass.
·         DON'T use a high-pressure spray nozzle when rinsing your windows after washing.
·         DON'T use abrasive or caustic cleaners because they may cause permanent damage to the finish or the glass.

Thinking Back on
20 Years of Service
The first vehicle purchased for the Majors Home Improvement installation team was a yellow moving box van. Over time, the bright yellow truck and blue Majors Home Improvement lettering gained attention as it arrived at home work sites and inspired the current Majors logo. #Majors20yr
