Updating Patio Doors Is As Easy as 1-2-3 in New Jersey & New York

The Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey and New York Metro helps people turn their houses into comfortable, welcoming homes. Our precision-crafted replacement windows and patio doors instantly transform a tired home with worn-out curb appeal into an attractive space with a beautiful view from both sides of the glass.

If you’ve been putting off updating your patio doors because the process seems overwhelming, this article should put your fears to rest. Updating with replacement patio doors is as easy as 1-2-3 and you’re done.

Step One: Design Your Replacement Patio Doors

Choosing replacement patio doors manufactured for superior performance and functionality is important. We offer three distinct styles that enhance energy-efficiency, provide abundant natural light flow in your home and offer simple operation.

During the design process, you’ll decide whether you prefer a traditional hinged, French-style door or a sliding option. There are two gliding styles too, one that looks like a hinged-French door, and one that is sleek and contemporary.

You can customize your preference with unique configurations and elements that perfectly complement your existing architecture and overall aesthetic. Plus, each patio door includes:

  • Double-pane, low-e glass options constructed with argon gas between the panes to manage heat gain/heat loss through the door
  • Frames with superior insulating properties and characteristics that prevent flaking, pitting and weather damage seen in traditional wood framed doors
  • Locking mechanisms and exceptional weather stripping designed to block air and moisture leaks

While designing your new patio doors, you’ll also select hardware, frame colors, grilles, insect screens and other accessories.

Typically, homeowners complete the design phase in the comfort of their own home, or with a consultant in our showroom.

Step Two: Approve the Order

Whether you visit a showroom to design your patio doors, or have a private, in-home consultation, a representative will measure each door you plan to replace, and fill out an order for the factory to build your new patio entrance door exactly to your specifications.

Once you approve the order, all that’s left is waiting a few weeks for skilled technicians to buidl, deliver and install the new door. Waiting is perhaps the hardest part of the process.

Step Three: Enjoy!

Manufacturing processes, exceptional craftsmanship and superior construction materials come together to ensure your new patio door is strong and durable enough to keep performing for as long as you live in your home.

Year after year you will enjoy the crystal clear view through the glass, the fade and weather-resistant frame and trim work, and the easy-to-use functionality. We are so confident you will love your new patio entrance doors, we offer one of the most comprehensive warranties available from replacement product dealers.

3 Reasons to Install Replacement Windows Before Winter in NJ & NY

3 Reasons to Install Replacement Windows Before Winter in NJ & NY

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.

With Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey and New York Metro’s Winter Installation Method, any season is a good time to install replacement windows, and today is a great day to get started.

Below are three reasons the Renewal by Andersen team thinks winter is the perfect time for upgrading your New Jersey or New York Metro home. (more…)

Starting an Indoor Herb Garden on Your Bay Window Ledge is Easy

How Replacement Windows are Like a Holiday Cheesecake

How Replacement Windows are Like a Holiday Cheesecake

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.

  • In the same way that flour type and quality directly influence a dessert’s taste and texture, high-quality construction materials, like Fibrex, affect performance.
  • 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.
