Replacing Windows? Here Are Our Style Recommendations

Replacing Windows? Here Are Our Style Recommendations

October 07, 2014

Imagine enjoying a good landscape view of Milwaukee over a cup of coffee inside your home, relishing the unfiltered colors of the sky during sunset. Having a good window indeed increases your viewing experience at home! Are your old windows due for replacement? Here are the styles that we recommend.

Casement or Awning Windows

Typical choices for bathroom and kitchen areas are casement and awning windows. These types of windows allow ample amount of sunlight to penetrate, making it the best option for areas at home that require much ventilation and natural light.

Double Hung Windows

For those who want a homey and simple ambience, consider a double hung window in Waukesha and surrounding areas in Milwaukee. Renewal by Andersen® double hung windows are fabricated to tilt inward for easy maintenance. You will no longer endure the hassle of dragging out the ladder or the hose to tidy up the surface of your windows. One simple tilt and you’ll have access to the exterior without going out of the house.

Bow and Bay Windows

If you love a good view from the inside, consider installing bow or bay windows – two distinct yet similar styles of replacement windows that both provide an adequate viewing area. Bay windows are linear and use four or more window panels, while bow windows are curvy and often use of three window panels.

Sliding Window

Sliding windows allow more natural light to come in. This type of window opens by sliding horizontally, which is a practical choice for homes with limited space.

Picture Windows

These windows have large single panels that are fixed to your exterior walls, at times spanning from floor to ceiling. If you prefer fixed single glass windows that are both stylish and functional, a picture window is just perfect for you. This window does not open, making it easy to maintain.

Specialty Windows

Specialty windows are a good choice for homeowners who have a specific style in mind. If you want something unique and exclusive to reflect in your home, this is a good option. Some specialty window styles include hexagon, chord, circle top, and pentagon windows.

Hear From Our Customers

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.

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.
