The Real Value of a Door: 4 Factors before Making a Choice

The Real Value of a Door: 4 Factors before Making a Choice

May 25, 2016

If your door has seen better days, it’s time for a change. Many homeowners often ignore their door as long as it doesn’t stick or threaten to fall off the hinges. Nonetheless, a door can’t last forever, so even if it looks fine, it could be leaking air and letting in drafts.


Whether your doors are just a little worn or are rotting, you owe it to your home to replace them as soon as you can. Here are four things you should consider when getting replacement doors in Milwaukee:

1. Curb Appeal

A door represents the main entry into your lovely home, so it has to look the part. Patio doors in Milwaukee have to blend in with the aesthetics of your home. You might invest in a new shade of paint for all your walls, perhaps a new set of windows, even a new roof. If your door doesn’t fit the design, however, it will get more attention.

Fortunately, our Renewal by Andersen® doors can meet your home’s needs. They come in two styles: traditional and contemporary. You can also select a color and finish. In addition, we offer a range of hardware choices and accessories. This means your door will suit your preferences.

2. Energy Efficiency

You may think that a low-cost knockoff won’t be noticed, but your heating or cooling bills and your level of comfort indoors will tell a different story. Get a door that’s rated high for energy efficiency and that carries a good warranty. That’s exactly what we offer at Renewal by Andersen — Milwaukee. Our doors come with High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass, which is our most energy-efficient package.

3. Low Maintenance

Homeowners want patio doors in Milwaukee that they can enjoy without having to maintain too much and for too long a time, each time. They just want performance and longevity with as little maintenance as possible. Renewal by Andersen provides doors like that: tough, lovely to look at, and low-maintenance.

4. Overall Value

You want a door that gives you the most value for your money: good looks, great material that doesn’t need a lot of maintenance and resists the elements, energy efficiency, and a great warranty. In short, everything that Renewal by Andersen doors offer.

Let this list guide you in your search for a new door for your home. Call us at (262) 522-3034 and we’ll make sure to provide the door that meets all your home’s needs.

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!!!
