Best Practices for Window Replacement

January 05, 2018

Are you wondering why your home is always chilly? One of the major reasons could be poor insulation coupled with the presence of gaps in doors and windows. This is usually a sign to finally replace your old units.

Best Practices for Window Replacement

It’s never too late to start a home improvement project. Here’s what you need to know when you hire a company like Renewal by Andersen® Milwaukee to install a new double hung window or another type of window on your home.

Use the Correct Product

For example, large window openings may be appropriate for the installation of a bow or bay window. Renewal by Andersen – Milwaukee may suggest this option after a thorough evaluation of the opening on your wall or the window you want replaced. The right size window in each area can vastly improve your home’s insulation.

Choose the Right Materials

The materials used to manufacture your windows play an important role in keeping your home comfortable. For instance, wood has properties that make it better than vinyl when it comes to keeping your home more comfortable. At Renewal by Andersen we offer window products that perform better than wood and vinyl, using our innovative Fibrex® material for window frames and sashes. Fibrex is a combination of polymers and wood grains. It can withstand all sorts of climates and different weather conditions.

Choose the Appropriate Window Type

We agree that the right type of window is crucial, especially if you want to replace an old one during winter. Our double-hung and picture windows are ideal options for those who want to start a project during the cold months. Both types are able to seal gaps, leakages and other similar problems that you may encounter in old or ordinary windows.

It’s all a matter of the best practices coming together with the best products. At Renewal by Andersen Milwaukee, we don’t simply push our products. We find out what you truly need and take into account the budget you have for the project. This means everything we do is realistic, with your satisfaction first on our minds.

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!!!

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.
