Christmas Gifts with Home Improvement on the Mind


Halloween is just a couple of weeks away, and the holiday season is just around the corner. A lot of Palatine area homeowners are currently in the process of carving pumpkins and decorating their homes with fake spider webs – didn’t we just clean those off of our homes as part of fall cleanup? That’s okay though, soon the children will be out Trick-or-Treating and we will get to enjoy their reactions to our spooky decorations. Then it will be time to clean up again, and plan our Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s decorations.

This time of year always seems to go by so quickly because our decorations stay out for a couple of weeks at a time and then they get put away until next year when we do it all over again. Which brings us back to our primary topic for today – gift giving. We all know that special someone who deserves an amazing gift this year. Whether you’re planning to buy a new dishwasher for someone you love or an entire set of new appliances, consider this idea as well: a Therma Tru entry door from us here at Lake Cook Exteriors.

Seriously Thoughtful Gift Giving

How do you usually buy Christmas gifts for people you love? Most of us listen to little hints dropped throughout the year. Phrases like, I’d love to have a… or wouldn’t it be nice to have… Think along the lines of home improvement items that your loved ones have mentioned this year.

Most people have at least one or two people that they spend several hundred dollars on each year. Is dad getting a new riding lawn mower or golf clubs for Christmas? Are you already planning a surprise dishwasher for your daughter who just bought a new house with her husband? Did anyone you love ask for home improvement items? Who would benefit the most from an amazing Therma Tru door?

Christmas is actually the perfect time to purchase a Therma Tru entry door from us, because it takes several weeks to receive the door after we order it. And then we have to schedule the installation appointment with the homeowner, so it may take 6-8 weeks from the date of purchase to actually install the door.

If you’re currently in the process of window shopping for that perfect home improvement style Christmas gift, call one of our professional home improvement technicians at Lake Cook Exteriors at 847-991-9180 and we’ll schedule an appointment for a design consultation. Feel free to drop by our showroom at 50 East Palatine Rd, Palatine IL to see our products and test them yourself before purchasing. We have full lines of entry doors, surrounds, windows, siding, and guttering systems for your convenience.
