When it comes to exterior wall coatings, the smartest decision is to hire a professional for the job. Unlike movies, painting a home is a complex process which has to be done correctly if you want to enjoy the full benefits of the product you’re applying. Besides, not only do our skilled team have more experience in the field, but we’ll also go through and make sure that the area being painted is properly prepped and cleaned up afterwards, letting you sit back and relax as opposed to pulling down tape and putting up ladders.

While we’ll take care of the major prep work, all you really have to do is clear up the areas near the walls that can obstruct the paint job, or cause an accident. For example, for exterior painting, we recommend moving your patio sets and exterior decor.

We can all agree that choosing the color for your home’s exterior is a really difficult choice. That is why the Elor Energy team is always happy to help make recommendations and help you make a decision that will produce the results you’ve always dreamed of!

Energy Efficient Windows

Got questions about replacement windows? We got you! Check out the answers to our most frequently asked question below:

Energy efficient windows, also known as energy-saving windows, are designed to prevent your HVAC air from escaping from your home. Their increased insulation reduces your home’s overall energy usage—and therefore, your bills! They also help make the indoor environment more comfortable and peaceful.

Signs that your windows are due for replacement includes:

  • Faulty operation
  • Recurring presence of cold drafts
  • Excessive window condensation
  • Water damage and decay
  • Excessive outside noise
  • Damaged window/cracked glass
  • High energy bills

At Elor Energy, we offer a wide selection of window options, including:

  • Sliding windows
  • Double hung windows
  • Casement windows
  • Awning windows
  • Bay windows
  • Bow windows
  • Garden windows
  • Picture windows
  • Geometric windows
  • & more!

The answer is YES! Replacing your windows will not only help lower your energy bills, but it’ll also help make your home more comfortable for the entire family! Replacing your windows is especially worth it if you answer yes to any of the following questions:

  • Are you tired of high heating and cooling bills?
  • Are your windows damaged or difficult to operate?
  • Is the glass hot or cold to the touch?
  • Do you want to increase home value?
  • Is window cleaning a burden?
  • Do you want to add more natural light inside your home?
  • Are you ready to give your house a fresh look, inside and out?

You will want to take down all blinds, curtains, and any other window treatment. Be sure to clear the path to the windows to avoid any types of accidents. It is also advisable to remove all wall decorations from the walls close to the windows as they may fall during removal or installation.

If your ultimate goal is to enjoy the maximum energy efficiency savings, then yes, you should replace all of your windows at the same time! However, it is not essential. Replacing a few windows at a time will also help reduce your heating and cooling costs.

Unless you’re an experienced certified windows installer, we would recommend against it. Windows that are installed incorrectly will not provide you with all of the benefits they’re meant to give you, such as lower energy bills and superior insulation.

You will want to take down all blinds, curtains, and any other window treatment. Be sure to clear the path to the windows to avoid any types of accidents. It is also advisable to remove all wall decorations from the walls close to the windows as they may fall during removal or installation.

  • Lower energy bills
  • Enhanced curb appeal
  • Easier cleaning/maintenance
  • Improved ease of use
