Charming Wilmington Home Gets Refreshed with Dormer Window Replacement

Walls, windows, doors, and a roof. The main components of a home seem simple enough, but when something goes wrong with one of them, it can kick-off a domino effect with the others. The biggest culprit for home improvement issues? Water.

When Jeff and Lillian Shelton first reached out to Improveit, they discovered that some water-related issues elsewhere in the home had trickled into problems with their windows. “We sit on a low spot in the subdivision,” Lillian told the Improveit team. “We had a water issue that caused a lot of settling, and even though we got the water issue resolved, it affected the windows too.”

Over time, moisture and settling left the walls of the home “whopper-jawed and warped,” Lillian said. “The walls and weren’t straight anymore, which caused a lot of cracking in the caulking and seals around the windows, and leaks around the original window openings.” Additionally, some of the old and outdated double-hung windows had broken panes that needed to be fixed.

Dormer Windows & Front Porch Show Off the Refresh

When Jeff & Lillian met with Improveit, it was clear that their Wilmington double-hung windows needed a full replacement. The old metal windows were original to late 1990s home, and Lillian said they felt like a cheaper quality that builders often used for subdivisions at that time. While the choice saves money on the cost of building the home, it doesn’t do the homeowners any favors. Builder-grade windows are generally less energy efficient higher-quality windows, and generally have a shorter lifespan.

For the Sheltons, choosing Improveit’s Performax54 windows came with all the benefits of a complete window upgrade – and they’ll never have to worry about the effects of house settling again. Performax54 windows made to order based on the exact specifications of the window openings, and their rigid, insulated frames are guaranteed never to warp, twist, or sag. And should any damage happen (including broken seals and broken glass), Improveit’s lifetime warranty will cover the windows for as long as the home is standing!

In all, the Sheltons worked with Improveit to replace all 11 windows in their home, all in white and without the Colonial grids that the original windows had. Installation only took a day, and the results are stunning. The clean white vinyl pops against the home’s black roof and shutters, and is especially noticeable from the front yard. With bright new windows, the home’s deep front porch and charming dormers have a beautiful farmhouse feel.

What Are Dormer Windows?

The three upstairs windows in the Sheltons’ home are each centered in a dormer, a type of roof structure that projects above a home’s roof. The term comes from the French words for sleep (dormer) and sleeping room (dormeor), and were commonly used to bring light into attic-level bedrooms.

At Improveit, our window installers work in teams of two with one installer inside the home and one outside. Together the team removes the old windows, fits and levels the new window in the opening, secures it into place, and uses spray foam to air-seal any gaps or cracks. From there, the trim is installed and the job is done!

Generally, double-hung windows make the most sense for dormer window replacement. Dormers are often narrow, so a window that lifts open like a double-hung works well. Casement windows could also be used in dormers where you want a functional windows. Picture windows are an option for spaces where the dormer may be more decorative than functional.
