The back to school rush is over for most of us on Long Island and that means it’s time to start thinking about preparing your windows for the colder days ahead. Children and families are settling into a new routine filled with after school piano lessons, tutoring and athletic practice. At Renewal by Andersen of Long Island, we are already hearing from people who don’t want to face another winter without modern, energy-efficient replacement windows and patio doors. Planning ahead is a good thing!
Designing Replacement Windows is Like Any Other Home Improvement Project
You wouldn’t want to embark on planning a new garden without proper planning any more than you would want to simply ask a replacement window dealer to customize your home windows for you.
Efficient planning means you don’t have to spend copious amounts of time tending your garden rooms to have an enviable yard that will impress your neighbors and your guests. For example, shade-loving hostas intermingled with vibrant astilbe blossoms present a truly “handsome” summertime yard – and neither species requires extensive care to thrive in our area. And, choosing four-season border grasses, or ground cover, like miscanthus, purple-leaf ninebark and lilyturf with its tiny blue bells, ensures your landscaping texture doesn’t disappear as the snow begins to fall.
For the avid Long Island gardener, this time of year is delightful. Spectacular autumn colors are just a few weeks away, and many of our neighbors are anxiously waiting for the fall table crops to ripen. These are the rewards of living on Long Island – delicious fresh food and stunning views of both low-maintenance gardens and natural landscapes that awaken our senses. For inspiration, you probably spend time looking at local gardens to see what others have growing in their flower beds and greenscapes. You can find many plant varieties today that resist native pests and perennials that adapt to our Northeastern weather fluctuations. Wise choices reduce your time investment and increase your pleasure – and yield, if you are planting edibles.
Few people ever design a garden and maintain it exactly the same year after year. An aspiring master gardener always explores new varieties and diverse gardening techniques. Part of the joy of gardening is watching your outdoor spaces evolve over time as the trees mature and you introduce new textures, scents and colors.
Customizing Your Replacement Windows & Patio Doors for Your Long Island Home
Customizing replacement windows and patio doors is very much like planning your garden rooms – with one exception. Once you get your new fixtures installed, you never have to worry about tweaking the design to get more enjoyment and pleasure from your investment.
Unlike trying new planting techniques and playing around with different irrigation systems to find the most efficient, low-maintenance solution for your garden, customizing modern replacement windows and patio doors for your Long Island home should be a once-in-a-lifetime journey.
Keep in mind that landscaping does impact the glass choices you make. Different glass options work better in some settings than others. For example, if you have windows that get full sunlight for several hours during the day, you may benefit from High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ Glass which blocks up to 95% of harmful UV rays that prematurely age your artwork and fabric furniture. By the way, SmartSun™ Glass is almost 50% more efficient that traditional double pane glass during the cold weather months – a saving bonus you won’t want to miss. If you want to keep heated air indoors as the temperature drops, consider High Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ Glass with HeatLock® Technology™ designed to reflect the heat back into your living spaces similar to the rate achieved with triple pane glass without the added financial investment.
Consider your landscaping features today, and how your garden rooms will change in the future as you compare different styles, accessories and replacement window components. Whether you are looking for innovative solutions that enable seamless integration between your outdoor spaces and indoor living areas, or you are more interested in boosting energy-efficiency with windows that complement your lifestyle and let you capture those stunning fall views beyond the glass, Renewal by Andersen of Long Island has solutions to help you achieve your goal.
We offer seven replacement window styles – casement, awning, hopper, double-hung, sliding, bay/bow and fixed windows. We also have more than a dozen specialty shapes – half circles, equal-sided arch windows, triangles, trapezoids and more – that give you expanded opportunities to create a truly stunning curb appeal.
