What To Do With Old Window Frames

replacement windows in Hemet, CA

When you get replacement windows in Hemet, CA, that means the old windows are coming out. What happens to those windows? You have options, of course. They are your windows and you own them so you can do with them as you please. Here are some choices to help you figure out what you want to do with the old window frames once they come out and the new ones go in.

Have The Window Company Haul Them Away

Old frames, especially very old frames, may not have much use to you. If you don’t want to do anything with them, it’s much easier for you to have the window company take them along when they leave and get rid of them for you. It leaves less hassle for you to try and find someone to take them and someplace for them to go later. The job is complete and behind you and that’s that.

Repurpose Them

If you like working with wood or you are a crafty sort, perhaps you can find another use for your window frames. You could build any number of things with used wood. Perhaps some new shelves for the garage or a small end table for the side of the couch. Using the wood in this manner gives you something to do, a new purpose for the wood, and some neat, handmade items. You can scrape the old window paint off and redo the colors in any way you’d like as well.

Craft Them

Crafts are all the rage today and there are lots of things you could do with wood scraps from old window frames. Consider building child-sized benches, perhaps, with cute sayings on them or use them to stick a lawn ornament into the ground for a rustic look. If you like crafting, there are plenty of ideas on Pinterest and in other locations to get you going.

Donate Them

If your windows aren’t in too bad of shape, you could take them to a home improvement resale store and donate them. That way, people with windows that are really deteriorating can get something newer and better than what they have at a lower price than they would get new windows. It’s better than nothing for those that really need something different and you can feel good that your windows are getting used again.
