DOOR COLORS AND THE HOUSES THEY CAN COMPLEMENT

The U.S. has a rich architectural history that sees a wide range of home styles across different states. Equally rich are the reasons for each style’s unique popularity, as well as the character that each one exudes. Perhaps it was never intentional, but each design has its own unique color palette that has become a part of their identity

When it comes to picking the colors for Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis external doors, these play a very important part.

  1. White

The Georgian Federal style is a variation of the classic colonial residential design, and has one very distinct feature that makes them st and out: they’re built with a with a whole lot of bricks. This design choice lends a consistent reddish hue dominating the look of these homes. It’s not surprising that the best color for their exterior doors in St. Louis is white. What makes white a perfect choice is that the contrast between the two is pretty stark—drawing attention immediately to your doors.

  1. Black

A great option for external doors would be black. While modern homes come with flat roofs and simple lines, there isn’t a sense of unity when it comes to color. Nevertheless, many feature whites and greys. In this example, the color black serves to unify the subdued look brought about by the whites and greys.

  1. Canvas

It’s slightly tougher to find a color match for an exterior door when the purpose seems more to hide than be seen. Apart from white, the best option would be canvas, as the colors can st and out and lead visitors to your doorstep. With its prominent ver andas, low-pitch roof lines, overhanging eaves, and decidedly low-rise nature, the Craftsman Bungalow is actually a simple, convenient, and economic design. It is also very high on privacy.

  1. Terratone®

This is a good color choice for a door because it strikes the middle ground between light and dark. Terratone® will particularly fit with the Prairie style, which has the distinction of being the first design of American origin. With the horizontal shapes, browns, reds, and rust, it only makes sense to choose something slightly darker to contrast and st and out.

"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!!"
