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.

"The service provided by Renewal by Anderson is great, both on the sales and the installation side. Our sales representative was very accommodating and helpful. The installation crew was efficient and they all were professional. These are really nice windows and a great upgrade especially from builder-grade windows."

"It is great to do business with a company that still cares about what they do and respects the end goals. We appreciate your craftsmanship professionalism, and cannot say enough about the wonderful experience.

"Everyone I worked with from setting up the initial appointment to the salesman to the installers to everyone who checked on us and kept us updated on the progress of the windows was courteous, professional, and responsive. There’s always someone who is willing to answer your question without jumping through hoops which is rare these days! The installers were on time, did a beautiful job, cleaned up the space better than I expected, and even helped me with some blinds I couldn’t remove and fixed my squeaky front door! I’ve already recommended Renewal by Anderson to friends!"
