WINDOW REPLACEMENT: MISTAKES THAT LEAD TO LOWER CURB APPEAL

Window systems can dramatically affect your home’s curb appeal, although sometimes not in a good way. The wrong units can cause incongruity and negatively alter the look of your home’s facade.

Window Replacement Mistakes That Lead To Lower Curb Appeal

To avoid aesthetic problems when buying new windows, Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis warns against committing these costly mistakes:

Disregarding History

One of the main components of curb appeal is architectural authenticity. Traditional, modern and contemporary home styles follow different rule books. Some may share design elements, but most of them require certain details to stay true to form.

Before you tackle any home remodeling project like window replacement, you ought to know the notable characteristics of your space’s architecture. Sweat the small stuff because attention to detail matters to attain historical accuracy.

Ignoring Trends

If some of your home’s quintessential elements seem outdated, don’t be afraid to incorporate trends into window design. Black frames, massive panes, crisp lines and tall, sliding units are trendy these days. Mixing signature and fashionable details requires a delicate balancing act, so seek sage advice from professionals to avoid going overboard.

Forgoing Regular Maintenance

Nothing decreases curb appeal more than unkempt home exterior elements like your windows and doors. Keeping them in good shape is a long-term obligation, which can feel like a thankless task. The sheer number of glass units that regularly need care and attention render periodic scraping and painting a burden. While it’s impossible to escape your responsibility for the upkeep of your window and door systems, buying low-maintenance products can make the job less taxing.

Our doors and windows are worth the investment because they have minimal maintenance needs. All of our Fibrex®-made components are guaranteed not to rot, flake, pit, blister, peel, crack or rust for 20 years. They are available in Estate™ hardware finishes, which are resistant to tarnishing and corrosion. The outside surface of their exterior pane is coated with titanium dioxide that reduces water spotting up to 99% when activated by sunlight.

Reviews

"We had a large picture window and two side windows replaced. Everyone from the person who took our order to the installers were top notch. We got exactly what we wanted. Granted, we had to wait a few months, just like you do for everything these days, but we were told that up front. The windows were well worth the wait. We've replaced windows before by going to home maintenance stores. Don't waste your money on those. Our Renewal by Andersen windows look great, they operate like a dream, and are worth every penny. Quality through and through."
