Replacing Old Basement Windows - Tips You Haven't Probably Thought Of

If you have a sliding glass patio type door, you may need to adjust it periodically. If it is hard to open or close, or the latch doesn't work properly, you can often quickly and easily fix it yourself. Most likely you have a sliding door with wheels on the top and bottom, and a lever type lock mounted in the handle.

If the door is hard to open and close, there are a few things to try to fix it. First of all, if your door has wheels (which they you probably do, you just may not be able to see them), there should be two little round "buttons" covering holes on the bottom part of the door. If your carefully remove these covers with a flathead screwdriver, you will see two screws inside the holes they were covering. Using a screwdriver, turn these screws and the wheels will move up or down. Do this in slight (1 turn) increments until the door operates smoothly.

If that adjustment doesn't work, you may have to adjust the position of the catch latch. This is found on the inside of the jamb and looks like a small square "eye" latch. There are screws holding this in place, and by slightly loosening the screws and adjusting the position up or down, you can place the latch to where the hook will connect with it.

If neither of these adjustments fix the problem, contact a professional door installer or the manufacturer.

Basement Windows

I have written a number of vinyl replacement windows compare or comparison-based reviews. Each time I consider various aspects of the subject matter. Today I have picked some few brands that I want us to look at. I have not limited this article to only these so do read right to the end.

You can buy the Milgard Tuscany vinyl windows for your residential home. I have found them to work great except that they do not tilt-in especially this single hung one. This really makes it difficult when trying to clean them. Despite all that when I considered the other brands like Amerimax, Atrium and Simonton - Milgard was the cheapest of them all.

As for Pella - this is a great company with great windows buy I am not impressed with their Pella ThermaStar. In my opinion they are low-grade vinyl windows for those people looking for a cheap price.

When looking at vinyl replacement windows - compare various things not just the price. You need to look at the service, durability, functionality and proximity of the supplier.

How to Adjust Your Sliding Door

Have you ever avoided basements because they were dark and you felt trapped in them? That is a common reaction experienced by many people. After all, we've all seen movies and read books where characters are trapped in old cellars with no way of getting out and end up in dire circumstances. In older homes especially, most basement windows, if there were any at all, are small and placed high up on the walls. With modern window technology, however, there are other, more attractive options available that will allow both light and safety to become a part of your basement environment. These modern windows are usually called egress windows. They are located at normal window levels in a basement with window wells and even ladders outside of them, if necessary, so as to allow you a second means of escape from your basement in case of emergency. It can be a comforting thought to know that you'll never be "trapped" in your basement again. There will always be a way out.If some of your basement walls are above-ground, you'll be able to use your egress windows for other purposes. They can function like regular windows and be opened to let in fresh air. They are also large enough so that you can pop out the screens and climb out of them if you need to. Additionally, you may find them very handy if you need to move furniture and materials into and out of your basement, because they are at ground level on the outside of the house.Building codes in most areas require egress windows for homes that have bedrooms in the basement. Although you might consider them a waste of money, they can be vital in saving someone's life and in protecting the safety of your family. Most codes specify that egress windows be at least 22" w x 24" h. This space will allow plenty of room for most people to climb out of them safely. Of course, you can always install larger windows if you like to make them easier for everyone who might need to use them. If you're thinking of remodeling your basement into new living space, one of the first things you'll need to do is look into the building codes in your area to find out what you are required to have for egress windows. Once they're installed, you'll feel good in knowing that your home is safer and more secure than ever.
