It’s important to note that these units vary significantly t in br and, design and material. There are plenty of options available for every need, so take the time to consult the experts about the ideal styles for your specific architecture. To help you avoid choosing the wrong doors and windows for your home, here’s a rundown of which units are ideal, depending on your home style.

  • Traditional – Traditional homes exude a simple yet timeless appeal. Numerous home styles can fall under this category, including Cape Cod, Colonial and Georgian. For doors, it’s best to choose entryway units made of wood or fiberglass in wood stain finishes for a classic look. For windows, bays and bows go well with these traditional home styles because of their eye-catching structure, while double-hung windows are ideal as well for their timeless design.
  • Contemporary – Contemporary structures are characterized by sleek designs, clean lines and asymmetrical shapes. They feature large and open spaces. Because of their clean, minimalist look, contemporary homes go well with simple entryways with geometric shapes and metallic finishes. To make doors look a little more inviting, try choosing doors in a warm, wood finish. For windows, replacement units with expansive glass areas, such as picture and sliding windows, make great choices.

"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."

"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!"
