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If some of your home’s quintessential elements seem outdated, don’t be afraid to incorporate trends into window design.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.

"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!!"
