Are you looking to move some time in the future, but your home is in need of some upgrades? One great way to increase the resale value of your home is to get a window update from Community Builders of Tulsa. Our experts can find you the perfect energy-efficient windows to enhance curb appeal and raise your resale value.
HomeAdvisor (https://www.homeadvisor.com/cost/doors-and-windows/window-replacement/) reports that replacing a window in your home could cost around $300-$700 per window, presuming that the replacement would be installed in a structurally sound, ground floor frame. For example, replacing the windows of a three bedroom, single-story home with ten windows could cost anywhere from $3,000-$7,000. This cost could double for a two-story home. If the window frame has to be replaced as well, the cost of replacement could jump anywhere from 50% to 100%.
Other costs could include unexpected structural flaws, the need to modify existing window frames, adding double or triple-glazed windows and the location of the job site. The cost could also depend on which type of window you choose.
Though some serious ‘Do-it-yourselfers’ out there may want to try replacing windows on their own to save some money, it could end up costing them even more. Professional installers like those from Community Builders of Tulsa are specially trained to handle measurements, structural integrity, building codes, rotted wood, mold and more.
Replacing old windows with newer, energy-efficient ones can save you anywhere from $25 to $450 a year in heating and cooling costs, according to the government’s Energy Star program (https://www.energystar.gov/).
New windows can do a lot to freshen your home’s curb appeal, increase safety, and add ease of operation while also eliminating drafts that could quickly turn off prospective buyers when you decide to sell. But if they know you are saving energy dollars, they will probably want to as well.
Our EnergyWall windows have a Low-E coating that minimizes the amount of UV and infrared light that passes through glass without lessening the amount of visible light. Air-tight installation cuts out drafts and insulates your home, saving you energy dollars. There are many styles to choose from including awning, bay, bow, double-hung, picture, single-hung and slider windows.
Awning windows open outward and can be easily opened and closed tightly with a hand crank. The opening creates an “awning” that lets air flow freely through your home.
Bay windows can make a room appear a bit larger by providing extra outdoor lighting. The added window seating gives you a little extra nook.
Bow windows also provide some extra interior space and require the use of five windows. Double-hung windows are easy to operate and low maintenance. They are one of the most popular styles because they are so efficient and can fit in nearly any home. They open by sliding up and down and both sashes tilt in for easy cleaning.
Single-hung windows are similar to double-hung windows, but only have a moveable bottom sash. The top part of the glass is larger, allowing more light in. Its ease of operation make it another popular option.
Slider windows are a low-maintenance option that provides amazing views. The sliding pane moves on rollers to glide along a rail system for easy opening and closing.
Picture windows provide a panoramic view and provide more natural light than traditional windows.
So how do you know when it’s time for replacement windows? Homeowners should check their windows for damaged frame or condensation between window panes. It’s time for an upgrade if you seem to be feeling more drafts coming through your windows, hearing more outside noise than usual, or they are painted shut or difficult to open.
Increase resale value, energy efficiency and security for your family today by replacing those old windows!
You could win a Home Makeover today from Community Builders of Tulsa! The winner will choose from new windows, siding, or a new bath or shower system! Click here to enter: www.cbitulsa.com
Are your water bills sucking you dry? Don’t let your money run down the drain!
Cutting back on water use in your home is easier than you might think. Minor changes can help you save tons of water every year, and you can also help save the environment. The United States Environmental Protection Agency says that with at least forty states anticipating water shortages by 2024, the need to conserve water is critical. Here are some tips to conserve water at home:
1. Shorten your showers. According to the EPA, showering accounts for nearly 17 percent of indoor water use in American homes.
2. Turn water off while brushing your teeth.
3. Wash your pets outside in a place where your yard may need watering.
4. Defrost food in the fridge instead of using hot water.
5. Repair any leaks in your home.
6. Turn faucets as tight as possible after every use.
7. Don’t let water run while washing dishes by hand.
8. Use the trashcan instead of flushing when possible.
9. Water your lawn or garden in the morning to reduce evaporation.
10. Set sprinkler systems to water necessary areas only, not the street or sidewalk.
11. Avoid over-fertilizing your lawn because it increases its need for water.
12. Make sure your dishwasher and washing machine are fully loaded before running them.
13. Invest in low-flow shower heads and faucets. https://www.epa.gov/watersense/shower-better
It may not feel like you are saving much water by making these small changes, but they can add up to gallons, and those gallons add up to savings on your water bill!

Here at CBI Tulsa, we offer the highest quality custom fit acrylic bath liners instead of bath reglazing. You see the problem that we have with reglazing is that it’s just a temporary fix to your bathtub’s cracks, stubborn mold and impossible to remove dirt and grime. Reglazing simply does not last! The bottom line is that reglazing coatings are not very durable. What happens when a homeowner opts to have their problem tub reglazed is that the finish comes loose after a short amount of time and the problem areas you were trying to cover up start to reappear. Reglazing is a problem because it just isn’t very durable. Many homeowners report problems with chips, dings and other marks you don’t want all over your bathtub.
There you have it. Everything you need to know about relining vs. reglazing your bathtub. We would love to come out and show you our large selection of designer colors and styles that will coordinate beautifully with your existing space. If you are sick and tired of staring at your ugly tub, give us a call here at CBI Tulsa.
Metal roofs have been afflicted with an unwarranted reputation for being lesser than their asphalt counterparts. Their lackluster reputation can largely be attributed to several common misconceptions about their character. Today, we’d like to go over some of the more prominent metal roofing concerns and discuss just how much validity they hold.
Lackluster style selection/aesthetic
A common deterrent for homeowners when it comes to metal roofing is the belief that metal roofs are ugly and lack the strong selection of styles that other roofing materials have. This is most assuredly a misconception. Metal roofing has come a long way since its inception. There remains the tried and true style of the vertical seam roof, as well as a bevy of others, including metal tile, metal shake, metal shingles, stone-coated, and many more. Furthermore, metal roofs are available in a variety of gorgeous colors, making them perfect for enhancing or accenting the style of your home.
Increased Noise Level
Metal roofs have the misfortune of inheriting the myth that they produce increased noise levels when it rains. Thanks to cinema, it’s more common to imagine rain producing excessive noise if it comes down on metal rather than if it were raining on asphalt. However, in reality, metal roofs are actually no louder than a standard asphalt roof. In fact, they’re often been quoted as being quieter since metal roofs are usually installed over an existing shingle roof. To further get away from this myth, many metal roofs are accompanied by a solid sheathing attached to the underlayment for increased noise reduction.
Prone to Lightning Strikes
Metal roofs being prone to lightning strikes is one of the more far-fetched myths. It’s well known that metal is a strong electrical conductor, however, that does not mean lightning is immediately attracted to your home. Lightning tends to strike the highest object around. Whether it’s a tree or a lightning rod, it will strike the highest point first. If your home is the tallest object or structure during a lightning storm, then the potential for a strike is higher regardless of which roofing material you use.
Hopefully, we’ve dispelled enough of the more popular metal roofing myths that you’re now able to objectively consider it as a strong roofing option. Metal roofing has a number of strong benefits that make it a great investment for your home. Perhaps the greatest benefit of a metal roof is its lifespan. Metal roofs have been quoted to last 50+ years, which easily makes them the last roof you’ll ever have to install in your lifetime as a homeowner. A secondary benefit they provide is energy efficiency. Granted, a metal roof by itself will not dramatically reduce the energy consumption of your home but they do tend to have a better energy performance than asphalt roofs under the same conditions. To learn more about what makes metal roofing a great option, contact CBI Tulsa today!
