Are Your Ugly Windows Putting a Damper on Your Long Island Summer Mood?

Replacement Windows Impact long Island

Tiny Details Add Up to a Big Impact in a Long Island Window Project

Are the old, dilapidated windows on your Long Island home a source of embarrassment? Do you cringe every time you pull into the drive because the paint and caulking surrounding your window panes is chipped and cracked from years enduring the harsh summer sun? Maybe it’s the peeling paint on your wood frames and trim work that makes your house look tired and worn out. If your home needs a face lift, Renewal by Andersen of Long Island replacement windows may be just the trick to take your home from bland and boring to bold and beautiful.

Establishing Prominence with Mullions & Grilles

When you’re replacing original wood windows because you’re tired of the annual maintenance to keep rot, mold and mildew at bay, you may want to keep the original look without the hassle. While one of the key advantages of replacement windows is the flexibility to add personal touches, some people don’t realize how dramatically the little things impact the overall appearance of your windows.

For example, let’s say you’re replacing a group of three street-facing windows. All three windows are rectangular. Although all three windows are the same height, the center window is slightly wider. Each unit features a six-over-one, true divided light design. This means the upper sash appears to contain six panes of equal size while the lower sash is a single sheet of glass. In the original configuration, the center window unit immediately draws the eye because even though the mullions establish the same number of panes, the viewing area is obviously larger in the middle window.

You could design replacement windows with the exact configuration, albeit with more efficient and durable Fibrex composite frames to virtually eliminate all maintenance. You get an updated appearance and free up your weekends to do something more enjoyable than scraping and painting wood frames and trim.

Custom Color Options with Replacement Windows

Modern grille patterns offer many design styles with different widths to accomplish your goals. Windows with simulated divided-light grilles feature permanently affixed exterior grilles, between the glass spacers and your choice of permanent or removable interiors. You can even choose the same color for both exterior and interior mullions, or opt for a dual color scheme so you can match your interior décor and exterior architectural details.

While you’re considering color, take a look at the way different grille patterns influence which window unit assumes a more prominent role. Going back to the example above, you’ll have a totally different visual effect if you install grilles in the sidelights in a four-over-one pattern. This makes it look like there is more glass in the sash because each “pane” is larger. You could go the other way, too, perhaps choosing a nine-over-one pattern that makes the center window appear even larger. When you have exterior colors, or interior colors for that matter, that contrast the dominate colors in your overall decorating theme, your windows will naturally draw attention. You make the choice whether to go bold and beautiful, or select colors that create a seamless integration with other architectural elements.

Standard and Stunning Window Designs

If you aren’t tied to building modern, low-maintenance home windows that closely mimic the original design, you’re free to omit grilles altogether or select from standard options like the Prairie pattern that frames an open viewing area with two vertical and two horizontal bars, creating small squares in each corner. Or, you may like the Farmhouse pattern that features a pair of vertical bars in the upper sash or portion of the window that meet a horizontal bar placed at the center. This creates a clear viewing area on the bottom portion of your replacement window for an unobstructed view.

By thinking out of the box, you can see where creativity and freedom to express your personal style is a key advantage if you’re trying to create an eye-popping focal point. A custom sunburst pattern for the transom above your entryway or a distinct grille design to accentuate your arched windows can truly make a positive first impression when people visit your home.

Focusing on the Little Things

We highlighted the grille options in this article, but sometimes it is the smaller things that make the most dramatic difference in the visual impact. Carefully choosing trim width, check rail styles, hardware finishes and insect screens can significantly impact the overall aesthetic of your home. When you want to create a stunning big picture, turn your focus to the tiny details that go into creating your high-performance, energy efficient windows. You’ll be amazed at the difference these little extra add. Every detail from selecting the right color to complement exterior colors and landscaping to choosing the correct shape and operational handles are all important to achieving a look you will be proud of for many years to come.

Checking patio doors about once a month will help ensure your doors slide open and closed effortlessly for many, many years. Anytime your new door sticks or seems tight, you should examine your track to make sure there aren’t any obstructions or damage.

Clips are permanently affixed and you should not try to remove them. If you need more detailed instructions on safely removing and reinstalling your grilles, watch this video.
  4. Inspect the tracks for corrosion, chips or divots. The bottom of the track – the part where the door panels slide – should be flat, debris free and firmly in place.

  5. Use a small brush-type vacuum attachment or wand to remove loose dirt, leaves and other debris in the “valley” of the track.
  6. Wipe the area with a soft, damp cloth. If you find it hard to remove sticky or greasy spills, use a mild soap and water solution. Never use harsh chemicals or sharp objects to attack stubborn stains.

Custom Replacement Windows on Long Island Inspire Creative Homes

Custom Replacement Windows Long Island NY

Custom replacement windows and patio doors allow Long Island residents to express their creativity and enhance the view from the street and to the yard. But, beauty and attractiveness aren’t the only benefits of opting to customize home improvement products. Design features also give you the flexibility to add features that make your home more functional and protect the financial investment you have in your property. Of course, custom Renewal by Andersen home improvement products are manufactured with some of the highest quality materials and craftsmanship available to ensure they stay beautiful for decades, without extensive maintenance and upkeep.

To help ensure our customers are 100% satisfied after the installation, we recommend every customer carefully consider styles, decorative add-ons and accessories.

Custom Replacement Window Styles for Today’s World

Throughout history, window styles – as well as shapes, sizes and type of glass – have provided clues about the status of certain buildings and about the owner’s social and financial standing. There was a time that only the wealthiest people in the world could afford glass windows. In the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, windows also gave clues about the role each room played. Servants’ quarters tended to have smaller windows than a parlor where homeowners received guests. Today, we would be surprised to find an occupied home without a combination of fixed and operable windows in a variety of styles and sizes.

Where previous generations of home windows primarily tried to manage the outside elements by limiting the flow of air and moisture into the home, modern window styles virtually block air and moisture from infiltrating indoor spaces unless you intentionally open the sash. More importance is placed on increasing energy efficiency and comfort rather than presenting a certain financial or hierarchical status in the community.

Selecting a Best-fit Window Style for Your Home

A drive through area neighborhoods reveals the most popular window style on Long Island is the double- or single-hung window. Usually each home has a combination of windows that may include casements, awnings, sliding or gliding, picture windows and double-hung varieties, depending on the architectural style and the surrounding area. A best-fit window, one that is customized to fit the home style, and the lifestyle of the occupants, looks right, is easy to operate, provides an added layer of security or privacy and complements the other structural features of the home.

Sash and sliding windows are well suited in areas where casements and awnings configured to open out might interfere with outdoor traffic patterns. Replacement windows with a single operational crank like casements are especially functional in areas where you have to reach or stretch over counters and it would be difficult to raise or lower the sash without using a step stool or ladder. Before deciding whether a combination of double-hung units would be better installed side by side or in a beautiful bay window configuration, in your Long Island home it is important to think about the view from both sides of the glass. Framing a beautiful landscape may require a different approach than minimizing an unsightly view just beyond your property line.

Accessorizing Your Long Island Replacement Windows

Once you have determined the proper style – or styles – for each room in your home, you’ll want to consider decorative features such as trim and frame color, hardware finishes, grille patterns and insect screen options.

Color choices may complement the primary colors and textures of your home, or add some contrast. Hardware finishes allow you to personalize your indoor spaces by incorporating a touch of elegance or tying a common decorating theme together. You can easily draw attention to your windows or help choose finishes that blend into the overall appearance of your replacement window units to make them less noticeable. And, grilles, which are available in standard and custom patterns help you achieve design goals — from replicating original features in a historic home to adding a unique focal point that guides your visitors to the front door.

High-Performance Windows Equals High Satisfaction

Designing custom-built home windows to replace existing window units is a process. You must consider the advantages and disadvantages of each style to make sure every replacement window functions efficiently for your family. Choosing appropriate decorative features ensures you will be proud of your home improvements. Selecting a brand with a solid reputation for using high-quality construction materials will ensure your new windows will serve you well throughout the years you live in your home.

Which Replacement Window Styles are Best for Your Long Island Home?

Selecting Replacement Windows Long Island

 

Comparing replacement windows and patio doors on Long Island is tricky business. You’ve probably already asked for advice from your friends and neighbors who have recently invested in off-the-shelf products or worked with a local contractor. You may have even done some online research, checking out reviews on Angie’s List and Google. While finding a reputable dealer and a brand with a solid track record is an important first step, you should not neglect researching the many different styles on the market today and how they meet your design and energy-efficiency needs.

This article will help you prepare yourself for the in-home consultation – and give you a better idea of how important it is to carefully consider which type of window is best for you and your family.

Renewal by Andersen Tip: Many homeowners choose to install a variety of window styles in their home because every room has a unique feel, function and purpose.

Choosing the Right Replacement Window for the Right Reason

Many factors will influence your style choices. Are you looking for home windows that don’t require a lot of maintenance? Want something that is easy to clean? Working on a tight-budget or renovation schedule? All these things can directly (or indirectly) effect which style you choose. Let’s briefly look at a few different styles and some of the pros and cons of each.

Single Hung Windows

This style of window has a sash that lifts vertically to enable air circulation. One of the key benefits it price. Generally, a single hung window is cheaper than double-hung styles when all other features are the same. But consider that the savings come with a cost: you can only open the bottom half of your window. If you have small children, this can be a safety concern. You also lose the opportunity to open your windows to let out the hot air that accumulates at the top of a room, while letting in cooler air at the bottom of the window.

Double Hung Windows

This is one of the most popular type of windows on Long Island. Like their cousin, the single-hung window, this style has a sash that lifts vertically. However, you can also lower the upper sash to create a self-circulating effect. When manufactured with ENERGY STAR labeled glazing and high performance frames, double-hung windows are extremely energy-efficient. You’ll also find the tilt-to-clean feature that allows you to clean both interior and exterior surfaces from inside your home makes window cleaning day easier than ever before.

Hopper Windows

This style gained popularity in the 19th Century and was seen frequently in Victorian homes. Like casements and awning windows, hopper replacement windows are excellent at blocking air and moisture leaks. The movable window panel “presses” against the frame rather than sliding against the weather stripping so there is less friction. They are especially suited to compact spaces, areas over doors and beneath picture windows to encourage airflow. Unlike casement and awning home windows, a hopper pulls down and in from the top rather than opening outward.

Casement & Awning Windows

Casement and awning windows usually operate with a single level or crank. Like hopper windows, these two styles rate exceptionally high on the energy-efficiency scale. In fact, next to fixed windows, casements are the most likely to save you the most money on your heating and cooling bills, providing their have a high-quality frame and other building components.

Specialty Windows: Geometric Shapes, Bays, Bows and Arches

Some people assume you have to replace a square window with another square window of the same style. While this might be the simplest replacement, you can switch styles – like casements and hoppers – with a different style, and a different shape. Specialty replacement windows let you remove a large picture window and go back with a unique configuration that transforms a flat view to a panoramic view with a beautiful bay or bow. You may also decide you’d like to convert a plain Jane tall rectangular window with a fixed arch window or a configured variation that uses different shaped windows to form the same effect. One solution to create a stunning arch window presentation is to meld a semi-circle (or a half-circle) above a traditional rectangle replacement window and use a sunburst grille pattern to accentuate the design.

Having the flexibility to design and custom-build your home windows is one of the terrific advantages of installing custom replacement windows. So whether you want easy care windows, a unique window shape to accentuate the best features of your home or you’re concerned about upgrading your home on a budget, your professional window design consultant can help you consider your options.

Are You Ready for the Long Island Replacement Window Contractor Test?  

Long Island Replacement Windows Questions

14 Questions You Should Ask Any Replacement Window Company

Finding a reputable replacement window company on Long Island takes patience and research. It’s the same process you should use to find a tax consultant or financial advisor. You’ll want to find an experienced, trustworthy partner to make sure you get all the design and performance features in your windows to make your indoor spaces as comfortable and energy-efficient as possible.

To do your due diligence, it’s important to ask the right questions before you make a final decision – otherwise you may waste a lot of time, energy and money. If you’re thinking of buying your new replacement windows and patio doors from one company and then hiring an independent contractor to install them (something Renewal by Andersen of Long Island doesn’t recommend) keep this list handy to make sure you gather all the information you need to make an informed decision about your investment.

Top Questions to Ask a Long Island Replacement Window Installer

Remember, this is your project. Naturally, a home window installation contractor will ask some questions about your budget, how many windows and/or patio doors you want to replace and when you plan to start your renovation, but you should be able to get straight answers to your questions as well. The “interview” should give you a clear picture of what to expect during and after your windows are installed.

  1. Can I get a free estimate? You should never have to pay for an estimate – and you should be able to get a detailed estimate in writing.
  2. How many replacement windows have you installed? Renewal by Andersen of Long Island has installed over 95,000 windows and patio doors since 2008.
  3. What happens if there are any issues after the installation is complete? You shouldn’t have to deal with any subcontractors if a problem comes up. Make sure you can call the contractor you hire directly and that you won’t have to make multiple calls to the manufacturer and third-party companies.
  4. What payment options do you offer? Do they offer financing or is it just cash or credit card? Financing can make your window investment much more affordable.
  5. Do you offer a warranty? Some window contractors may offer a six-month or twelve-month warranty that covers parts or labor, but don’t settle for that option. The gold standard in the industry is a two-year warranty that covers parts and labor.
  6. Can you provide photos of recent projects in the area? Seeing photos of recently completed jobs can give you an idea of the work the company does as well as perhaps give you ideas for your own window project.
  7. How long with the project take from ordering the replacement windows to installation? Most people want their windows right away, but you have to expect that if your windows are being custom-made to fit your existing openings, there will be a little lead time. Beware of companies that can install your windows tomorrow or next week. If they can do it so soon, they’ll likely be using standard off-the-shelf windows and making them fit your openings, which isn’t ideal. Also, what does it say about the business’ reputation if they don’t have any other jobs lined up?
  8. Do I need another contractor to finish the job? This question covers things like finishing work and painting. Replacement windows and patio doors are specifically designed to fit the opening left when we remove existing windows so there shouldn’t be extensive construction required before or after the installation.
  9. Do you have references or online reviews from current or past customers? A reputable window contractor with satisfied customers will be able to provide verifiable references. You can also check out online review sites like Angie’s List or Home Advisor on your own.
  10. Are there any current projects in my area that I could drive by? You don’t want to work with a contractor that tramples down your favorite flowers and plants or scatters construction debris and tools everywhere that causes safety issues during the process. Naturally, any construction is a bit messy, but a skilled contractor knows the importance of a safe worksite and respects your property while getting the job completed.
  11. Are you licensed? Every reputable contractor has a license and should be able to provide a number you can verify with local authorities.
  12. Do you have insurance that covers you and your customers? Hiring an insured, bonded installation crew is just wise, even if you have homeowner’s coverage.
  13. How long have you been in business? Everyone has to start somewhere, but when it comes to installing new windows and replacement patio doors, you don’t necessarily want to be among the first customers. Even a high-quality, custom-built window is only as good as the installation. Hiring an inexperienced contractor could mean your warranty is voided and your new windows won’t perform as they were designed.
  14. What kind of training do your crews get? Our window technicians are carefully chosen and trained to install Renewal by Andersen windows according to manufacturer’s guidelines for every window style we sell.

Check Your Replacement Window Knowledge with Renewal by Andersen of Long Island

Long Island Replacement Window RatingsWhen you’re ready to replace the existing windows in your Long Island home, you’ll want to learn everything you can about replacement windows before you finalize the deal. At Renewal by Andersen of Long Island, we understand how important it is for our customers to be fully-informed before they invest their hard-earned money.

So, here are a few facts to help you start the journey toward a more beautiful, functional home.

Deciphering Replacement Window Labels

You can learn a great deal about your new windows just by reading the label. In the same way that packaged food labels provide valuable information about the contents – calories, carbs, protein, sodium content – and how eating the food will affect your body, a replacement window label tells you how the window will impact the overall energy-efficiency in your home.

The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) provides consumers with information about a window unit’s energy-efficiency and functionality. The label reveals how effectively the unit controls air leaks, visible light transmission and solar heat gain. If you visit the NFRC website you’ll learn the differences between U-factor and R-factor ratings and how each component from the framing material and glass options to weather stripping and design influence ratings. Your professional replacement window consultant can give you more information or you can read this article we published earlier.

Understanding How Extra Glass Panels Enhance Window Energy-Efficiency 

There are some unscrupulous window dealers in our area that will tell you that more window panes per window means you’ll save more money. While it is true that double-pane windows dramatically improve energy-efficiency compared to older, single-pane styles, installing triple-pane windows in our area won’t significantly reduce your heating and cooling bills enough to make back the extra investment because triple-pane window units are usually much more expensive than double-pane options. That third panel is more beneficial for people living in areas that experience prolonged periods of sub-zero temperatures or routinely have many consecutive days where the high temp exceeds 100 degrees.

It’s much more important for Long Island residents to make sure their replacement windows have Energy-Star certified Low-E glass options, Fibrex composite frames and inert gas between the panes than add a third panel.

Modern Replacement Windows Make Storm Windows Unnecessary

Warm weather is here and you may have already gone through the arduous task of removing and storing your storm windows. In a few months, you’ll have to drag them out and manhandle them into place again. High-quality replacement windows and patio doors eliminate the need for storm windows. Your new home windows are designed to block air and moisture leaks throughout the seasons without any additional help. You’ll probably still want to install insect screens so you won’t have to worry about flying gnats and no-see-ums coming in whenever you want to enjoy an evening breeze or air out the house. Plus, with tilt-in and lift out design features, cleaning your windows is so easy you won’t dread window washing day.

Worry-free Window Installation Always Comes with a Warranty

Precision matters when it comes to getting the most out of your new home windows. Because replacement windows are manufactured to exactly fit the opening left when we remove your current windows, some people think they might be able to save a little money by shopping around for a contractor to install their windows. In reality, this is usually an unwise decision, even if you could find a “cheap contractor” or do it yourself. Even a fraction of an inch can result in a window being out of square or unlevel which can lead to problems with your window’s operation and long-term durability. Failing to properly install flashing or drip caps can literally ruin your windows. And, you have to make sure to choose the proper insulation to boost energy-efficiency and prevent air and moisture leaks. Missing any one of the dozens of installation steps can void your manufacturer’s window warranty.

At Renewal by Andersen of Long Island, we never leave such an important process to someone we can’t trust completely. We carefully train our professional installers and back the installation with a full two-year warranty. This means parts and labor are covered against manufacturing defects so if anything goes wrong or an issue develops you just need to call us and we’ll make it right.

How to Pick the Right Replacement Windows & Patio Doors for Your Long Island Garage to ‘She Shed’ (the female version of a ‘Man Cave’) Conversion

Long Island Replacement Windows She ShedIf yesterday’s big Long Island trend was creation of the basement “Man Cave”, today’s is the creation of the “She Shed” from an unused space like the garage. Converting a garage into livable space can be an excellent way to boost property value to your Long Island home. These often “undervalued rooms,” provide great customizable areas for everything from increasing your sleeping quarters to creating a dedicated home-based business office. Maybe you’re considering converting the garage into a she-zone? Keep these tips from Renewal by Andersen of Long Island Replacement Windows and Patio Doors in mind as you explore your “She Shed” options.

What Are the Benefits of Garage Conversions Versus Traditional Additions?

Costs associated with turning your garage into a mom-cave can be significantly less than building a traditional addition. For example, you don’t typically have to expand the foundation, which means you save money on excavation. You can take the cash you would have spent on building from scratch – frame, roof, other shell components – on high-end furnishings, fixtures, replacement windows and flooring to make the space more comfortable and energy-efficient for everyday use. While electricity and plumbing may need updating to meet local code, that isn’t usually as expensive as putting in all new pipes and wires. Perhaps the biggest advantage of turning an attached or detached space into a private get-away is there’s less construction mess and disruption to your daily life.

How to Get Started Planning Your Long Island Renovation Project

Depending on your vision and existing space, you may want to hire a professional designer to help you make a detailed plan for your Long Island building renovation. Even small spaces can be turned into beautiful and elegant surroundings with the proper colors, textures and furnishings. Keep in mind that some neighborhoods, particularly in Brooklyn and Queens have restrictions about street parking and you may need to add some type of covered parking for the displaced cars. Careful planning ensures you don’t sacrifice needed storage space or run into problems with the zoning office.

How Do You Create Stunning Curb Appeal with Replacement Windows & Patio Doors?

Even though you’re starting with a pre-built room, you can’t ignore your exterior. Your new digs should complement the main house and the neighborhood. So while, you’re thinking about adding more insulation and heating and cooling equipment to make your woman-cave is comfortable throughout the seasons, remember to upgrade your side doors and single pane windows. Aging windows and doors often leak air and moisture, which will make your new room uncomfortable and unhealthy, not to mention expensive to heat and cool. Modern, energy-efficient replacement windows help keep your indoor temperature steady and bring in lots of natural light — both important considerations that are more important for living spaces than for car storage.

Some people opt to keep a roll-up garage door, but you don’t have to take that route. Replacing the existing entrance with a wall of glass created by a combination of operable and fixed windows will dramatically improve your indoor lighting, and create a stunning focal point. You may opt for a large French-style hinged patio door flanked by fixed windows to present a beautiful free-flowing entrance and exit point, or a sliding patio door combination that allows plenty of fresh air to come in during moderate weather, but keeps those no-see-ums out with TruScene insect screens.

How to Choose the Right Replacement Windows for Your Long Island ‘She Shed’

Choosing the right windows and doors that work for you and your surroundings is important for your comfort and your ultimate satisfaction and happiness with the final result of your renovation project. “The key to our customer’s satisfaction is that they take the time to understand what’s important to them in a replacement window and then select the windows and doors that meet their needs now, and for the foreseeable future.” Joe Ronzino, president of Renewal by Andersen of Long Island said. “It’s important that you select the right window that will provide superior performance for a lifetime to ensure your happiness long-term.”

Just like a professional designer can help you choose the best flooring materials and help you decide whether vertical storage is better or you want to take advantage of rafter space to store your seasonal sporting gear, a professional replacement window consultant can help you consider the many window styles, glazing options and accessories to make sure your new windows perform beautifully in your new space for years to come.

Conversion Checklist for Long Island Homeowners

Whether you call it a woman-cave, a she shed, a mom-cave or your personal quiet-place, converting the garage into a place you can get away to relax and rejuvenate is an exciting project. Intentional planning will make things go smoother, with less stress and less mess. Here’s your checklist for success.

  1. Check with the zoning and permitting offices before planning your project. Find out if there are restrictions about converting parking space into living space and curbside parking in your neighborhood.
  2. Set aside a weekend to clean out the garage. Have a tag sale, donate unwanted items to charity or recycle what you no longer need.
  3. Consult an interior designer to help you use every square inch of your “new” room to its full potential.
  4. Contact your Long Island replacement window and patio door specialist to discuss options for bringing in more natural light and enhancing energy-efficiency.

Modern Replacement Windows Can Give Your Long Island Office a Fresh Look

Long Island Replacement Windows OfficeDiscovering the wonderful transformation that modern replacement windows and patio doors can make in your Long Island home may have you thinking you want to upgrade your office windows, too. Whether you are looking to replace a couple of windows in your home office, or you are considering upgrading all the windows in your downtown office, Renewal by Andersen of Long Island has energy-efficient solutions to help you save money.

Here are a few things for you to consider before making your final decision.

Their 20/2/10 warranty ensures your peace of mind that your windows performance will continue to block damp, hot air in summer, frigid drafts in winter for years to come.

Improving Spaces Designed for Your Long Island Business with Replacement Windows

Whether you’re renovating a walk-up in a mixed-use neighborhood on Long Island to open a massage therapy studio or you’re working on a home office in the suburbs where you’ll offer accounting services, your windows are an important feature in your “commercial” space.

Honestly, most people hire a professional for his or her skills and services, and not the environment. However, the environment significantly impacts the client’s experience. “Little enhancements” to your office space go a long way toward setting the tone and mood, giving your clients a sense of what to expect from you.

Choose colors that complement the overall decorating scheme in your office. Consider indoor shutters or louvered window treatments that enable streaming sunlight, while adding a bit of privacy. If you want to add more privacy, patterned glass options can obscure the view without totally blocking natural light flow. Patterned glass is also an option when you want to allow some natural light to come in, but your view through the glass is less than stunning.

Customizing Windows in Your Long Island Office

Custom-built replacement windows give you flexibility to design windows for your business, your clientele and your personal preferences. Standard features like ENERGY STAR certified glass options and superior construction materials ensure you have opportunities to lower utility bills. Specialty shapes, unique grille patterns and exclusive hardware finishes allow you to create windows you can be proud of that help you add the “little enhancements” and luxurious features to show your customers’ comfort and safety matter to you.

Keep in mind, even replacement windows and patio doors built with the highest-quality materials and manufacturing techniques will only perform as well as the installation. That’s why all Renewal by Andersen replacement windows are installed by carefully selected technicians, and the installation warranty covers you for a full two years from installation date. Speaking of installation, one of the benefits of updating aging windows with replacement windows is that the installation crew actually removes the existing window immediately before putting in the new ones. This means less construction mess and less disruption to your business.

New Windows Give Your Long Island Office a Fresh Look for Summer

Once you’ve designed and ordered your custom replacement windows, take a close look your office to see if there are other things you can do to make the space more comfortable for your clients.

  1. Update wall color. There are thousands of colors, in fact some colorists say there are at least 1,000 shades of white out there. A neutral shade is normally best for commercial spaces, linen is a warm white that doesn’t feel sterile. If you want something a bit more bold, or you want to explore contrasting color that works well with white, check out the 2016 colors offered by Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams or your favorite paint brand.\
  2. Infuse a touch of luxury. Whether it is an eye-catching antique vase or a comfortable chair, add at least one high-end accessory to your office for the summer.
  3. Bring nature indoors. Your new replacement windows will help you manage natural sunlight to your advantage, whether that means bouncing light off mirrors to enhance your decorating goals or reducing the amount of light that comes indoors. You can also bring nature indoors with fresh-cut flower arrangements made with seasonal flowers from your garden or the local nursery.

Replace Your Long Island Home’s Windows with Resale in Mind

Long Island Replacement Windows Resale ValueIf you’ve found a great deal in the perfect community on Long Island. If this is your first house, you probably see it as a potential stepping stone to a larger, more modern home and you might be wondering which upgrades add the most resale value down the line. From new appliances to modern Renewal by Andersen replacement windows and patio doors, the choices you make now will have a big impact on how much profit you take away when you hand over the keys to the new owner when it’s time to sell.

While experts say that the number one way renovation that returns more than it costs is painting, there are things you can do now to get more enjoyment from your home, while potentially helping its resale down the road. Here are some value-added home renovation upgrades real estate professionals recommend for people who plan to sell their residence in the next few years that will make it a joy to live in now while bringing better offers once you put your home on the market.

Mid-Range Renovation Returns & Replacement Windows

Some upgrades, like redesigning a home office and giving the master suite a makeover may make your home more comfortable and functional for you, but the colors and built-in’s that make you smile now may be a total turn-off for buyers in the future.

To enhance the value for potential buyers, update the lighting. Replace out-of-date track lighting with halogen options or consider an eye-catching chandelier to boost illumination and visual interest. Remember that scratched glass and damaged window panes reduce the overall light in every room which can be a real turn off for potential buyers. Replacement windows improve the view and bring more natural light indoors, which makes everything look better. Energy-Star certified Renewal by Andersen replacement windows also improve energy-efficiency, which is a major selling point. Who doesn’t want to save money on their heating and air conditioning bills?

Consider Cost Versus Return on High-Value Upgrades

While it adds a big “wow-factor”, adding a sunroom is actually a “low-value” renovation because the huge expense is so far above any return you’ll see at resale. If you want a sunroom for you, that’s fine; just don’t think it’s going to add much re-sale value. Replacing a fixed window with a replacement bay or bow window may be a better option. You’ll get a bit more floor space and the ample light and ventilation buyers love while skipping the inconvenience and mess that comes with a “true” addition. Make sure your landscaping and gardens complement the new window too. An immaculate lawn, well-placed flagstone and a variety of plants in urns or pots definitely helps you make a great first impression, something that directly influences the perceived value from the moment a potential buyer arrives.

Front porches are back in vogue. If you don’t plan to invest in a full porch, consider a portico or some other grand entrance. And don’t forget the backyard. Adding a deck, even a small one, can add value to your property. A deck can be a comfortable spot to relax after a long day at work or a striking entry point for your guests. Whether you install an elegant French-hinged replacement patio door or you opt for a more contemporary sliding door, make sure your surrounding windows complement the installation. And, again, pay special attention to the landscaping. Use pavers or stone to build a path to your entrance and a variety of flowering and green plants to add texture throughout the seasons so your property will look beautiful whether you put the place on the market in spring, summer, fall or winter.

Don’t forget Kitchens & Baths

Updating an old kitchen or bath can improve your day to day life and bring a pretty substantial return on your investment. Just remember that styles change frequently in these often renovated spaces, so thing classic, not trendy. Think, stainless, granite counter tops, high-end fixtures and high-quality floors that really stand out. In the master en suite rainshower fixtures are popular for showers now, while luxurious whirlpool tubs and special lighting features tend to have staying power. As in other rooms, update your kitchen and baths with replacement windows designed specifically for your floor plan, furniture and fixtures. The right window styles make all the difference. Awnings installed high on the wall, with the single lever operation, are easier to open and close than a single- or double-hung window and casement windows work exceptionally well in areas where you have to reach, like over the counter or sink in the kitchen.

Renewal by Andersen of Long Island Replacement Windows & Patio Doors Add the Finishing Touches

If you’re renovating your home with plans to sell in the next few years, you want to make sure your project fits your lifestyle while adding value for future owners. Buyers are looking for high-end flooring, state-of-the-art kitchens and luxurious baths. Decks and landscaping are bonus features that increase the value. To get the most out of your investment, pay attention to the details in every room. Replacement window hardware that complements your overall décor is a subtle element that can tie your decorating scheme together or accentuate your custom-built fixtures. Every room looks better in natural light, so design your replacement windows for high energy-efficiency and opportunities to expand the amount of natural light in your home.

Getting the highest return on investment from your home renovation takes careful planning, especially if you want to enjoy your updated spaces for a few years before you list your property. We can help. Fill in the short form on this page to request a brochure or give us a call at 1-877-313-9052 and ask to speak to a replacement window and patio door specialists about the many ways our home improvement products can help add value for buyers.

Summer is Coming: Are Your Long Island Home’s Windows & Doors Ready?

Long Island Replacement Windows SummerLike cleaning off the air conditioner or opening the pool, your home’s windows are an important element in planning for the arrival of summer on Long Island. If your windows perform well, you’ll enjoy a more comfortable indoor environment without running the air conditioning bill off the chart. Many Long Islanders don’t realize prepping for summer is just as important as getting ready for winter. Here are a few tips to help you create a summer checklist from our professional Renewal by Andersen of replacement window and patio door consultants.

How Do You Start a Summer Weatherization Plan for Windows & Patio Doors?

In many ways, a summer checklist is similar to your winter plan. Checking for air and moisture leaks is vital regardless of the season. If you’re like most people, you don’t want to waste money cooling your indoor air just to have it sneak out because your windows aren’t weather-tight.

If you haven’t upgraded your Long Island home’s windows yet, a summer weatherization plan should start with inspecting your home window units for damage. Renewal by Andersen replacement windows and patio doors are designed to make planning for summer easier.

Here are the First 5 Bullet Points for Your Long Island Summer Window & Patio Door Checklist

  1. Window and Patio Door Frames

Different window frame materials respond differently to the environment. For example, replacement windows and patio doors built with Fibrex frames, have a lower thermal expansion rating than most other construction materials, so you won’t see gaps develop between the window and the building envelope like you might with vinyl windows. Other frame materials have other issues. Aluminum frames bend easier than wood or composite frames. Vinyl is light weight, but may pull, twist or warp during extreme temperature variances. Wood is structurally stable, and less likely to develop gaps or sag, but requires extensive maintenance and tends to absorb moisture if you don’t stay on top of chips and cracking paint.

Checking for damage may include spraying water on the outside of each window, being sure to run a stream of water around the edge of the glass and the outside perimeter of your frame on all sides. Check to see if any water gets inside the house or between the window panes if you have multi-pane windows. You can also use the flashlight method after dark. While it won’t detect small cracks, shining a flashlight over all areas where gaps may occur, while someone on the outside watches for rays of light, you’ll be able to see larger cracks.

  1. Window and Door Weather Stripping

According to the Department of Energy, it is very important to choose the right weather stripping for the right location – one that will “withstand the friction, weather, temperature changes, and wear and tear associated with its location.”

Over time, daily use, changes in weather and age cause weather stripping to weaken. Weather stripping must also support sash movement – right, left, up and down. Gliding windows tend to develop weather stripping problems earlier than casements because casement windows use compression closure mechanisms that produce less friction than the sliding motion that “drags” across the material every time you open or close your window. Minor issues will turn into major air and moisture leaks if you don’t repair or replace damaged components.

  1. Window and Door Sealants

Weather stripping is necessary for movable components, but sealants are appropriate for stationary features. Caulking and other sealants “glue” your glass panes in place, keeping outdoor air and moisture from infiltrating your home. You can find caulk in many forms that include tubes, ropes, and even spray formulas and in many formulations and colors. Be sure to use only caulking designed for exterior use on windows and doors.

If you use harsh chemicals or sharp tools to clean your windows you can damage the sealants. Direct sunlight can also weaken the seals. Detecting leaks involves taking a close look at all areas designed to stay in place. Look for missing sections or globs of sealant that indicate your seal is broken or may have been poorly patched at some point.

  1. Window and Door Glass

When you spray your windows, you may notice leaks around the glass, but it’s also important to look for chips or cracks near the edges. Broken panes should be replaced, whether there is an unsightly hole that obstructs your view, or a tiny crack near the perimeter that allows air and moisture leaking. Keep in mind, even a tiny hole allows the gas-fill to escape, which dramatically reduces the energy-efficiency of an insulated window.

  1. Window and Door Tracks

Clean out loose dirt and debris that may damage mechanical rollers and weather stripping and keep your patio doors and sliding windows from operating smoothly. Anything that interferes with smooth operation, whether it is a missing screw designed to stabilize the unit or damaged roller balls, these should be fixed or replaced because these problems often lead to more damage and reduce overall performance.

Tips on Improving Comfort and Seasonal Readiness

Once you’ve inspected your windows and patio doors and corrected any problems you find, you’ll want to look at ways to help your windows perform better as the temperature rises. The glass in Renewal by Andersen replacement windows and patio doors have special coatings applied during the manufacturing process that allow you to control light levels and block UV rays that tend to be stronger during summer months.

Even high-quality replacement windows can benefit from additional help during the most extreme temperatures. To help you get the most from the built-in features, you might want to update your window treatments. Curtains and drapes can play an integral role in managing your indoor comfort by blocking direct sunlight and providing an extra layer of insulation. Honeycomb shades, insulated curtains and blinds with reflective backing allow you to express your style while enhancing overall window performance.

Most of us shut our windows tight and turn our AC thermostats down to keep our indoor spaces cooler as the weather heats up. But on those more temperate days or when the temperature is more moderate, opening a couple of windows slightly to encourage ventilation and flush out airborne germs and allergens can’t hurt. Test airflow patterns by opening different windows to see which combination works best for cross ventilation in your home. And, don’t forget to check your window screens. Who wants to open a window and find out too late a swarm of mosquitos or no-see-ums came in with the healthy breeze?

Need More Tips on Creating A Summer-Weatherization Plan With Replacement Windows & Patio Doors for Your Long Island Home?

Preparing your home for summer is important if you want to stay comfortable without busting your budget. Whether you’re interested in more tips on conducting your own home inspection, or you found some major issues and are thinking about updating your home with new replacement windows or patio doors, we can help. Just give us a quick all at 1-877-313-9052 to and schedule a free home inspection or fill in the short form on this page. Summer is coming – we’ll help you get ready.
