Improve Your Home’s Curb Appeal This Spring with New Windows

Improve Your Home’s Curb Appeal This Spring with New Windows

April 15, 2015

Spring is the best time to bring out a fresh side to your home. It’s not only symbolic—this season actually presents the most ideal working conditions for working outdoors. Make the most of the pleasant weather by scheduling your window projects this season.

Why Windows?
Replacing your windows is one of the exterior projects that give the best value for your money. According to Remodeling magazine, a midpriced window replacement in the East North Central region this year can recoup up to 74.3% of your investment. This high ROI can be attributed to a window’s ability to transform the way your home looks from outside. If you want to boost appeal and add value to your home, installing stylish replacements is your best bet.

The challenge is finding the style, color, and material that suits your home best. The right choice might just freshen up your drab exteriors. Here are our fresh recommendations:

Casement Windows: Simple and Breezy
Style meets function in this simple yet high-performing window design. Casements open like normal doors in Wisconsin do: with an outward swing. Among window types, they provide the most ventilation. They feature easily reachable hand cranks that let you catch and control the fresh air that enters a room.

Many modern models feature leaner frames and a bigger viewing area for maximum visual appeal. French casements are a popular variation. They comprise two side-hinged units installed inside a single French frame. They look best with classic-themed architecture but can also be styled for contemporary exteriors. Casements, in general, also come in a wide range of stylish frame colors that can give your home a much-needed visual boost.

Casements are often regarded as the most energy-efficient window design. Capitalize on this by opting for high-performing framing material and glass packages. Renewal by Andersen®, an expert in replacement windows, makes units out of the composite framing material Fibrex® and low-emissivity glass options. This combination can help you lower your energy spending significantly.

Specialty Windows: Something Special and Dramatic
Each home is unique, so there’s no reason for your replacement windows not to be as well. Renewal by Andersen of Milwaukee can cater to your unique sense of style with our full line of stunning specialty windows. They come in a wide selection of shapes and sizes that we custom-build to fit even into the tightest spaces. They’re perfect for adding drama and creativity to your exteriors. Here are some of the specialty windows we offer:

• Circle Top™ – unique semicircle design looks great installed over doors and picture units

• Springline™ – brings a dash of medieval romance into your exteriors, best with Gothic grille patterns

• Right Triangle – interesting geometry that can fit into awkward or dull spaces

• Peak Pentagon – glamorous and contemporary, best paired with Prairie grille pattern

Specialty windows are often installed singly, but they also look great in combination with other units. Because they cannot be opened or closed, you can pair them with operable units like casements for ventilation. Find a matching grille pattern to boost style and design.

When it comes to replacement units, no windows contractor in Milwaukee offers more customizable color, shape, grille, frame, and glass packages than Renewal by Andersen of Milwaukee. Talk to one of our representatives at (262) 522-1001 for the best option for your home.

Hear From Our Customers

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.

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!!!

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.
