Why Your Home Should Have a Foundation Liner

If you haven’t heard of them before, a foundation liner is a wonderful addition to your home. In fact, it is an addition that many homeowners feel is a necessity. Here is why your home should have a foundation liner.

1. Up your Home Value

Whether you plan to live in it for the rest of your life, or you are hoping to sell in a few years, every homeowner wants to increase the value of their home. When you add a foundation liner to your home, you are increasing the value in a few different ways.

First, you increase the value simply by improving your curb appeal. Aesthetically speaking, a foundation liner really adds something to the overall look of your home. It gives your home an undeniable “finished” look, and helps to frame your home similar to the effect crown molding or baseboards have to the inside of your home.

When you choose Windowell Expressions to install your foundation liner, you can choose from a wide range of colors, shapes, textures, and patterns. No matter what the current style of your home is, Windowell Expressions can help you find a foundation liner to match.

Another benefit of adding a foundation liner is that they are very easy to replace. That means that no matter how your personal style or that of your home evolves over time, you can keep your foundation liner current with minimal cost and non-intrusive installation.

2. Up the Security

Besides increasing the value of your home by upping the curb appeal, your foundation liner will also add value with added security. Utah is a beautiful place to live, and it comes with many different types of weather. Your home will face extreme heat as well as massive amounts of snow in the course of a year, with bouts of rain in between. This can do a number on your foundation, especially if it’s not properly protected, you have poor drainage, or any damage to your foundation.

When you add a foundation liner to your home, you have a layer of protection to keep these elements away from your foundation where they won’t be able to cause problems. This will in turn, extend the life of your foundation, which is of great value because replacing your foundation is an expensive and difficult repair.

Weather isn’t the only thing your foundation needs protection from. Poor soil grade and even excessive gardening can be a threat to your foundation. Your foundation liner can also safeguard you against these threats too.

If you’re interested in increasing your home value and adding more protection for your foundation, a foundation liner is for you.

Whether you’re in the process of building, remodeling, or just hoping to add a foundation liner to your current home, choose Windowell Expressions for all of your foundation liner needs. Contact them today for details about how to get your foundation liner installed!

 

Why We Love Window Well Liners (And You Should, Too!)

Window wells are a necessity in most homes. In case of an emergency, they serve as an escape route for your family. They also provide much needed light to otherwise dark basements. But with window wells often come the standard metal liner to keep soil from filling up your well. Just because you need a window well, doesn’t mean it has to be ugly. In fact, at Windowell Expressions, “we hide ugly!” This is easily done with a window well liner. Here are just a few reasons why we love window well liners, and why you should too.

A Polished Look

One of the main reasons we love window well liners is the fact that it really helps to pull an entire look of a home together. You know how refreshing refinished floors, or freshly painted walls can be. Imagine that paired not only with crisp white trim, but a drab gray window well liner. It can really clash and throw off your entire look! Instead, choose a complimentary design, or a pop of color to blend the view outside your windows to the one inside.

A Retreat

With many different colors, patterns, and textures to choose from, you can turn your basement into whatever kind of sanctuary you want. As you gaze out your basement windows, enjoy a view of the sky as well a gorgeous stone-lookalike liner. It takes less than a day for a Windowell Expression professional to install a liner, so don’t wait to make your view a beautiful and relaxing one.

Brightens a Room

Basements are not known for having much natural light. When you have a window well you are allowing as much natural light into your basement as you can, and when you have a window well liner, you are utilizing that light! Choose a liner that will help reflect the light, and brighten the well so that you can make the most of the natural light you have access to. With these elements working for you, you might even forget you’re in the basement! And the more light that is reflected into a room, the less you’ll have to spend on utility bills. If that’s not a reason to love window well liners we don’t know what is!

Are you worried about putting in window well liners because you’re not sure how the style will hold up, or you plan to remodel in a few years? Not to worry. Windowell Expressions’ window well liners are extremely durable and last for years, but they are also extremely simple, fast, and cost effective to install.
