Let’s learn how to choose replacement window features and elements that complement a Colonial home’s original design.
We at Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey and New York Metro chose this topic because you don’t have to go very far from home in any direction to find a delightful mix of architectural styles with strong colonial-influence. Especially in some of our older communities, you are likely to find many houses inspired by the homes that early Americans left in the Old World as they migrated to the New World across the ocean from the Netherlands, Germany and other European countries.
Fortunately, the original building materials have been replaced by energy-efficient solutions and over time some modifications were adopted to improve functionality, but the charm and beauty of old-world design are still popular.
So, let’s talk about Colonial home characteristics and how your replacement windows fit in.
