Drywall framing in Fort Lauderdale can also open up a previously divided space by adding a doorway or window.
Replace Doors and Windows
The most commonly used structural components of your home are windows and doors, especially in the summer. As we use them, hinges get old and begin to creak or fail, knobs break, and the doors themselves may break. The same goes for windows, which may crack, get stuck, or break. Replacing doors and windows can increase your home’s security when it comes to potential home invaders or natural disasters like hurricanes or floods. If you can see sunlight stream through the cracks in your door frames on exterior doors, they are not water tight and can lead to flooding and water damage. Homes built before the 1970s may not have hurricane proof windows, leaving them vulnerable to shattering even if boarded. Protect yourself and your family with new doors and windows!
