If you are considering renovating your property then the likelihood is that you will at least think about tearing every room to pieces and starting again.

Basement Casement Windows

Basements have traditionally been viewed as lightless spaces that are simply used to store unwanted items that have no place anywhere else in a home. However, the trend of renovating your home to get the best out of all space has opened up a whole new world of basement activity.

Basements are now being used as games rooms, fitness centres, bedrooms and studies, amongst other things, and so have different structural needs than they have ever had before. A source of light is now high on the individual homeowner’s wanted list, and basement casement windows fit the bill!

How to Repair Storm Windows

Do It Yourself Cornices

Cornices rate high as one of the classiest ways to jazz up your windows. One way you can get this look at a fraction of the cost a professional would charge you is with do-it-yourself window cornices. You can find fairly pricey kits that come pre-measured with the materials pre-cut that you simply put together, but who’s to say how closely you’ll come to actually getting what you want for your own particular décor scheme? And considering that pros charge up to $7.50 per inch to make custom window cornices, doing it yourself can save you a serious chunk of change by applying a little know-how along with your own time, tools, and materials.
