Is winter really a good time to update home windows with high-performance replacement windows in New York and New Jersey? It is if your old windows aren’t doing their job anymore. US Department of Energy studies suggest poorly performing home windows are responsible for up to 25% of your heating and cooling bills, and much of the conditioned air sneaks out through or around the window unit if you don’t repair or replace damaged windows. That is wasted money you could be spending on something more important to you or your family.
People who love to cook from scratch, and who have recently replaced a traditional kitchen window with a bay replacement window, may be thinking about growing an herb garden on the interior ledge to have fresh herbs all year-round. Even if you don’t have a garden window over the sink, this Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey and New York Metro blog post provides tips on what to plant, how to take care of the herbs and when to harvest.

Replacement Windows are like a yummy holiday dessert. Read on to learn how and to get a free Banana Pudding Cheesecake recipe.
Many people in New Jersey and metropolitan New York host huge family gatherings around the holidays. If you’re not hosting, you’re probably attending one and don’t want to show up empty-handed and bringing an extra dessert is always a welcome addition to a holiday gathering. Planning a holiday menu is what led one of our Renewal by Andersen team members to decide designing replacement windows is similar to baking a mouth-watering dessert worthy of repeating year after year.
Designing Replacement Windows is a Bit Like Creating Culinary Delights
Delicious food doesn’t just happen. It is created. You must start with high quality ingredients, selected for freshness, taste and textures. The best results come from measuring precisely, blending just enough, but not too much, and cooking for a very specific amount of time at the right temperature, using the proper baking dish.
While it may sound strange, designing replacement windows requires the same intentional patterns as baking a beautiful cheesecake.
Optional garnishes enrich the dining experience, and choosing accessories, like window screens, handles and grilles, adds a bit of visual interest.
Without accurate measurements, your cake won’t taste right or may crack or puff up in the center, ruining its appearance, as well as its taste. You can toss a dish that doesn’t turn out and start over, but building a replacement window that doesn’t fit the opening left when your existing windows are removed could mean spending hundreds of dollars modifying your home’s structure to get a good fit, and the hassle of finding a contractor with skills and expertise to do the job right.
