HOW TO DETERMINE THE HANDING OF YOUR DOOR

So you ordered a new entry door to replace your old one. After that long deliberation on what door style and what material you’ll be using, you finally placed an order. But when the door finally arrives, you find out that the hinges and the knob are on the wrong side of the door. This can be a confusing—not to mention, frustrating—situation, as you would have to take the door back to the seller and replace it with the right one, which means you might need to wait all over again.

To avoid exasperating situations such as this, you should first find out the h anding of your current door (whether it is left-h anded or right-h anded) so you can order the correct replacement. Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis, the leading provider and installer of entry doors in St. Louis, MO, offers this simple tip in order to easily determine the h anding of your door:

Open your door and st and in the doorway with your back to where the hinges are. If the door is on your left, then it is a left-h and door, and vice versa. It’s that simple. However, there are exceptions to this rule. If your door swings outward (as with exterior doors such as patio doors) then this rule works in reverse.

If you need any help with your doors and/or windows, Renewal by Andersen of St. Louis is always here to lend you a h and.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
