Historical Homes: Preserving Milwaukee’s Charm With the Right Window & Door Restoration

Historical Homes: Preserving Milwaukee’s Charm With the Right Window & Door Restoration

November 14, 2023

Milwaukee’s historical homes are not just bricks and mortar; they are living remnants of a bygone era, showcasing architectural styles and craftsmanship that are an integral part of the city’s rich heritage. However, exterior products like windows and doors don’t last forever, and eventually, you will need to replace parts of your beloved home. Luckily, with the right window and door restoration, you can breathe new life into your historical home while preserving its unique charm and character. This is a responsibility and a privilege that the team at Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee takes very seriously.

Finding the Perfect Blend of Style & Functionality for Historical Homes

Historical homes are treasures that deserve careful preservation, but they can also benefit from modern amenities that enhance comfort, efficiency, and security. It’s all about finding the right balance. At Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee, we offer a wide range of fully customizable windows and exterior doors for any scenario.

Window Styles to Suit Any Property

We are the ideal partner for your window replacement because our windows can be tailored to match the style of your historical home. Choose from styles like:

  • Double-Hung Windows – This popular window style provides a timeless look and excellent ventilation. They’re also a breeze to clean.
  • Casement Windows – For homes with a traditional or cottage-style vibe, casement windows offer the perfect blend of charm and efficiency.
  • Picture Windows – When maintaining historical authenticity is a top priority, picture windows are ideal for showcasing exterior views and letting in natural light.

And more. Whatever style you choose, you’ll enjoy high-performance glass and durable frames that were made to outlast even humid summers and snowy winters in Wisconsin.

Stunning Exterior Doors Tailored to Your Needs

Exterior doors are a focal point for any home, impacting both aesthetics and security. We offer exterior doors that are sure to complement your historical property, including:

  • Entry Doors – If you’re looking to make a grand entrance, consider a custom entry door. With numerous designs and finishes available, you can find a door that matches your home’s era while offering modern security features.
  • Patio Doors – Sliding or hinged patio doors can seamlessly connect your indoor and outdoor spaces while providing an elegant, classic look.
  • French Doors – French doors remain a timeless choice for modern and historical homes. They exude elegance and sophistication and can be customized to match your home’s unique style.

Hear From Our Customers

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.
