The leaves are falling, and the air is getting crisper in Kansas City, which means fall is finally here! It’s the perfect time of the year to enjoy your front porch, and the last time you’ll have the ability to make some changes before winter sets in. Fall in love with your porch this fall with these simple design ideas that can take a so-so porch to a spectacular place you’ll want to sip your coffee and read the paper every morning.
The Right Lighting Fixtures
Having the right type of lighting fixtures is key to creating your ideal porch. Lighting can set a mood with the type of fixtures you choose, as well as the type of lighting. Rustic lighting fixtures are very popular for front porches almost every season of the year. They are pretty classic, and tend to evoke a feel of an old country farmhouse. Bronzed or black iron wall sconces with glass are a great choice for both sides of your front door. It creates a more inviting look and feel. We also suggest overhead lights if you plan to enjoy your porch at night. Use soft lighting to create a relaxing feel.
New Front Door
A new front door can make all the difference in your front porch. It’s the first thing people see when they come to your home, and is one of the main features of the front of your home and your porch. Simple, black, white, or wood doors are classic, or you could get a door with a nice punch of color, like red or blue. Right now we love farmhouse entry doors in conjunction with transoms and sidelights. These features together add character to the front of your home.

Comfortable & Cute Seating
The whole point of a front porch is to sit and enjoy it. So make sure you have comfortable seating. Enjoy your time on your porch with a nice rocking chair or a porch swing. And don’t forget a nice little coffee table so you can entertain. Bonus points for a nice woolen blanket to keep you warm when the sun starts to set.
Call All-Weather today to help you create the perfect porch this fall with a front door you’ll love walking through every day.
We may not live in the Game of Thrones series, but their saying “winter is coming” is still very applicable to this time of year in Kansas City. While the weather may be beautiful right now, winter’s wrath is only a few short months away – if that. So make sure your home is winterized and ready to stand up to the elements. One of the most important aspects of your home to prepare for winter are your windows. All-Weather Window, Doors & Siding has some tips to help you get them ready for the cold.
Shut & Lock Windows
This is the time of year to make sure your windows shut and lock properly. Make sure there are no gaps between the window and the frame when it shuts, and make sure they lock completely. Stick your hand a few inches away from the frame of your window when it’s shut and locked and see if you can feel any wind or air slipping through. If you do, your weather stripping could be worn down or your window could be misaligned.
Check Windows for Safety
Also make sure your windows operate the opposite way. What we mean is, make sure they can open easily if need be, like in the case of a fire or other emergency that might require you to get out of a window quickly. This is important during every season, but before winter especially, since many people usually light more candles and have lots of string lights around their home during the holidays.
Fix Window Screens
This is the time of year you should make sure your window screens don’t have any holes, or dents that could allow bugs or mosquitos inside. The end of the fall season and the beginning of the winter season is the time of year when bugs try to make their way inside your warm home. Keep out mosquitos and other bugs this winter by bringing your broken screens into All-Weather. We can even fix them while you wait.

If you’re looking to replace the windows in your Kansas City area home, make sure you know your facts. You can go one of two ways; pocket replacement windows or full replacement windows. The industry-specific terminology can be confusing, so the All-Weather Window, Doors & Siding experts will break it down for you.
First of all, most companies do not offer full frames because it costs them additional work. But, at All-Weather, you can choose from both styles or mix and match in different areas of your home. This could be a great way to spend top dollars on the windows you’ll see the most, and save on other, less prominent windows.
Pocket Insert Windows
A pocket window is manufactured to fit inside an existing window frame already installed in your house. These are very popular because they don’t require a lot of intensive work inside or outside your home, they tend to be less expensive, and they can be installed in 1-2 days. One drawback is that you lose some window space because the pocket windows have a frame of their own, which must fit in the existing frame shrinking the overall glass dimensions in the process.
Full Frame Windows
Full frame windows require more work on your installer’s part. These require new wood or vinyl framing on the inside and outside of your home before the window can even be installed, which means more labor, which of course means they are more expensive. But, full frame replacement windows allow you more glass space, which means more light.
Whichever replacement window option you choose All-Weather carries the materials you need. And you can rest assured we will walk you through the entire process.

Hinged Patio Doors
A hinged patio door means that the door swings in or out at it’s hinges. Our hinged patio doors come with either one, two, or three panel configurations. The classic all-glass look allows you to take in more of your outside surroundings from the comfort of your home. This traditional look is low maintenance and easy to clean.

Gliding patio doors consist of two panels. Usually one panel is stationary, while the other glides on ball-bearing rollers to open and close. Our gliding doors provide more of a contemporary look. They are low maintenance with vinyl surfaces inside and out.
