McClanahan Builders installs new custom energy efficient replacement windows that will create tighter seals around openings in your home and reduce your energy cost. Basically, new replacement windows will pay for themselves overtime. 

New windows can make your home quieter, more attractive, and less drafty, and they don’t need painting and come in many different styles. They’re also easier to clean than old windows with combination storm and screens and can reduce your carbon footprint.  Many older window designs have no weather stripping as we know it today. The air seal was achieved through wood against wood contact or wood against metal contact. Neither would be acceptable by current standards

Reasons to determine if you could be a candidate for replacement windows:

- Condensation

- Rot

- Seal Failure

- Cracked Glass

- Cracked Glazing

- Insect Infestation

New exterior doors can increase your home's value through greater curb appeal. When upgrading your exterior doors, there are many details to keep in mind. From architectural style to interesting details like a knocker or decorative glass, there are many ways you can transform a basic front door into a grand entrance. Keep the following tips in mind to help select the door that is right for you.

Exterior doors are available in an incredible variety of designs. From traditional steel to ornate, hand-carved wood, you can find a door for any taste or budget.

Steel — Steel is the most affordable option today and is a good choice for most climates. It offers strength and durability, and requires only minimal maintenance and upkeep. Dress up a steel door with decorative glass inserts.
Fiberglass — Fiberglass doors come in an immense variety of styles with or without decorative glass inserts, and many offer the look of real wood at all budget levels. Fiberglass is built to withstand any climate, and requires minimal maintenance.
Wood — If your home calls for a stunning entry statement with a handcrafted touch, wood may be the best material for you. Wood doors should be repainted or refinished every year or two to prevent splitting and warping, and they are best maintained under a proper overhang.

Whether you're looking for a new exterior front door, a patio door or an interior door, McClanahan Builders can handle all your needs.
