In yesterday’s blog post, I gushed about the work SUNTEX did on our home. In all honesty, I’m still not quite used to it yet, and we’ve been home for just over a month now. However, in this post, I plan not to speak for the work, but to simply let it speak for itself – after all, they say a picture is worth 1,000 words…
The Posterior, and improved Exterior Door
Though I briefly mentioned this in a prior blog post (check it out, here: https://suntexllc.com/overwhelming-gratitude-to-suntex-part-1-of-2/), one of the major improvements SUNTEX was able to help us out with fixing our back door. Initially upon moving into our home, we had a thick, brown door that closed off the back yard to our kitchen, and provided no natural light inside. My husband and I took it upon ourselves to “DIY” install a new door with a large window, so that we would get some natural lighting to our kitchen and be able to see the backyard from inside, while also giving us the feeling of a larger kitchen.
While we did a pretty decent job for a first-time door installation, it was no where near ‘professional’ (we couldn’t even close it completely without locking it); so when Ally and Jose told us they would be able to re-use all of our same materials, paint it to match the exterior trim, and re-install the door so that it would close upon shutting it, we were truly grateful. The end result is safer, looks much better, and didn’t break our budget since we were able to use the existing door.
Before, we did not have any gutters or “official” rainwater catchment system, and you could see that every time it rained, the water would outline the foundation of our home – leading to backyard flooding. Now? Our foundation is protected, and we couldn’t be happier with the work. Thanks to the team at SUNTEX, and Norandex, for this major Home Improvement!
The Fence & Gate
The Sliding Barn-doors
The Energy-Reduction Reinforcements
While this one is a little more difficult to take photos of, it includes a few things: 1) fixing our back door so that it could shut fully without being locked, 2) adding insulation to the trim of each of our doors and garage door (an added bonus we didn’t even know to expect!), and 3) adding wood trim to our garage door so that light and temperature couldn’t enter/escape.
It’s also difficult to say which home improvement led to a particular amount in energy reductions to our energy bill, however the chart above should give you a good picture of what I mean – pay close attention to September of last year, to this year, after the Home Improvements from SUNTEX were integrated.
I think it’s safe to say we owe SUNTEX a huge debt of gratitude for the Home Improvements they made to our home, which was nothing short of amazing. I am incredibly grateful to work for a company who’s product and service I believe in, and to have been able to benefit from it myself. They have made our house into a home.
I also wanted to say, Thank you for allowing me to explore my creative writing skills while telling you the story of our trip through the lens of green energy this month! It was an absolute pleasure to write this for SUNTEX since I truly believe in the work they do, and the goodness that they bring about each day. Thank you for sharing in our merriment, and reading along this month!
Now, onto September. Fin.
