How to Tame the Countryside with a Classic Fiberglass Door and Glass Block Windows

I originally met Kelly in September of 2013 to look at a wood framed picture window (which was part of a 3 lite bay window) in her master bathroom where the frame had deteriorated from the harsh winters and winds which travel through the open fields surrounding her country home. This frame had caused the energy efficiency of the window to be compromised and the decision was made to replace the picture window with a frameless glass block system. At that time we talked briefly about the two double hung windows to the left and right of the master bathroom picture window and also about some maintenance challenges and performance issues with her current steel front entry door and storm door.

By the summer of 2015 Kelly decided to replace the two flanking double hung windows and to upgrade to a fiberglass entry door and an extruded aluminum storm door. In the article below we’ll take a look at how Kelly tamed these problem doors and windows in her beautiful Carroll Ohio country home.

Let’s face it options in entry door systems can leave most any dazed and confused.
