If you have been wondering whether to invest in off-the-shelf products or order custom-built replacement windows, here are a few of the alternative design features available when you design your own rather than purchase stock options.
Customizing New Jersey & New York Replacement Windows with Unique Window Grilles
While there are standard grille patterns that may allow you to replicate the existing look and feel of your home, you may want something that more accurately reflects your personality and decorating style. When you’re remodeling a historic residence, it may be important to you to choose a between-the-glass or simulated full divided light option that closely mimics traditional windows constructed with individual panes divided by wood strips. We have seven standard traditional grille patters, but you can also choose to create your own custom pattern to add a touch of personality or character to your. Our design team can help you get the perfect accent features to meet your decorating goals. Whether you choose permanently affixed grilles or opt for removable wood interiors that allow you to paint or stain to match your existing trim or wall color, you have the freedom to bring your vision to life.
Adding an Artistic Touch with Specialty Windows
Specialty windows allow you to replace standard rectangular windows with something that adds a bit of whimsy or distinction to an otherwise bland curb appeal. Often combined with more “traditional” window styles that enable ventilation, specialty windows are fixed, which means you’ll automatically improve energy-efficiency no matter which shape you choose. Geometric shapes (triangles, trapezoids and octagons) installed above or beside other windows allow you to create truly unique configurations that accent key architectural features. These specialty windows also serve as a unique focal point when installed under eaves or high on the wall in rooms with cathedral or vaulted ceilings. More than a dozen specialty windows shapes are available in our portfolio, but almost unlimited configurations allow you to express your personality and accentuate your home’s unique character.
Because every Renewal by Andersen replacement window is custom made to your specifications, you can get exactly what you want the first time with little hassle. Try doing this with off-the-shelf versions (if you can) and you’ll find you incur additional construction expense to achieve unique configurations. That means you’ll not only end up paying more, but you’ll also have to invest time and energy vetting contractors and most likely have to put up with the inconvenience and mess far longer than the one day installation you’ll have with most Renewal by Andersen renovation projects.
Creating Ambiance with Patterned Glass
Patterned glass adds a layer of privacy without blocking natural light and gives you an opportunity to add visual and textural appeal to your interior spaces. Four unique patterns give you the flexibility you may want to obscure the view in bedrooms or bathrooms or where you want to add a unique feature that complements your decorating scheme. You can add patterned glass to specialty windows, transoms and operable windows to get that “wow factor” in entry ways and foyers, too.
You may be able to find patterned glass on the shelf at your local big-box home improvement store, but finding the correct size and shape could be challenging. Custom-manufactured windows always fit your space when a replacement window installation team removes your existing windows — no modification or extra construction needed to make standard options fit.
