Some Popular Hardware Finishes You Can Try

December 26, 2019

Beauty lies in the details. If you want your new patio doors or windows to be as appealing and as beautiful as possible, then you need to carefully consider all of their design elements. Hardware finishes, in particular, can often be overlooked. In today’s article, Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee, the top replacement windows and doors company in our area, explains what you need to know about our hardware finishes.

Oil-Rubbed Bronze

Oil rubbed bronze finishes are best used for patio doors and windows on homes in a specific style: Tuscan and Mediterranean. The dark brown tones in hardware with this finish makes these hardware look particularly good together with warm colors. Oil-rubbed bronze is a living finish. This means that it changes over time as the hardware is used.

Antique Brass

Our antique brass finish captures the appeal and appearance of natural brass. It has a warm look because of its golden and brown tones. This hardware finish is flexible. It can look good on both traditional and modern homes. Consider using this hardware finish for your patio doors if your interior has a lot of exposed wood and stacked stone.

Distressed Nickel

Distressed nickel hardware finishes give off a rustic vibe. This finish is special because every piece looks unique. No two pieces look exactly alike, so this finish is perfect for homeowners who want their homes to look unique. Hardware with distressed nickel finishes look great on homes with exposed brick, concrete and wood. This hardware finish looks especially good on industrial modern homes.

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!!!
