Staying Safe at Home Starts With Your Doors

The Milwaukee Police Department recently released a crime statistics report for 2013 which showed a downward trend of crimes except for those that are violent in nature. The Police Chief of Milwaukee said that the most concerning aspects around the state are homicide, assault and robbery.

The Milwaukee Police Department has released its crime statistics for 2013, announcing an overall crime reduction of 8.7% compared to 2012 and a 26% reduction compared to 2007.

Violent crime (homicide, forcible rape, aggravated assault and robbery) was up slightly (1.1%) compared to 2012 but is down 11.4% since 2007. Property crime (burglary, theft, auto theft and arson) decreased 11.2% compared to 2012 and is down 29.5% since 2007.

Overall, the crime rate in Milwaukee this year is also expected to be lower – given that the MPD is doing its best to reduce crime and violence in the area.

The men and women of the Milwaukee Police Department have been working diligently to put in place plans that will continue the reductions in property crime experienced in 2013 while significantly reducing violence,” Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn said.

In a world that is getting more hostile day by day, safety should be our utmost priority – especially if it concerns our homes. It is our responsibility to make sure that our entry doors in Milwaukee are stable to avoid break-ins from unsavory individuals. Even if theft and robbery rates have been decreasing based on the MPD report, it is better to be safe than sorry. That is why Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee aims to provide residents with high-quality doors and the best installation process.

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.

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!!!
