Our Renewal by Andersen of Long Island inspiration gallery has dozens of examples that show homeowners how creativity and replacement window designs work together to present a truly unique, stunning curb appeal for your home. From time to time we like to showcase past projects in our area, with permission from our satisfied homeowners, of course. We hope these photos of local homes will inspire you to set your own creativity in motion.
Mixing Replacement Window Shapes & Styles
It’s rare for us to install one single style of window throughout a home. Most homeowners prefer a mix of operable and fixed windows of different styles, depending upon the room and use. And, while some architectural styles naturally look better with similar shapes, combining clean, straight lines with curves and arches is perfectly acceptable in most situations.
A circle-top specialty window installed above a beautiful double-hung window adds a splash of interest and expands your opportunities to bring in more natural light. One of the advantages of designing custom replacement windows is that you control how much detail you want to add. If you have a spectacular view in your living room, you may prefer to use a large picture window or add a bay or bow window. Want to draw attention to a special feature of your home? Consider installing grilles.
The two links below take you to examples of circle-top windows mounted over double-hung styles, one with grilles and one without. By the way, circle-top replacement windows aren’t just for those gorgeous double-hung styles, we also install specialty windows above contemporary sliding doors and all of our popular window styles.
Check out this photo of a circle top over a sliding window in a home we helped remodel on the east end of Long Island.
As you can see in this photo of a home we remodeled in East Moriches, circle-top windows look great over a single window, or spanning the full width of side-by-side double-hung windows to create an oversized view.
Bay window designs are flexible enough to replace a patio door or a row of casement windows positioned higher off the ground. By comparing the two bay configurations below, you can see how color and trim width impact the tone and mood in your rooms.
In this first example, four double-hung windows create a large viewing area with an ample ledge suitable for creating extra seating, a sunny place for indoor plants or extra storage.
By choosing a light-colored painted surface over the warm wood finish in the first example, the homeowner who designed this bay window created a serene mood and opted for extra floor space over more seating or storage. You’ll also notice the homeowner chose a three panel design. The design features a fixed center window flanked by two double-hung replacement windows. Installing the same grille pattern on all panels gives the room a polished, pulled together look and feel.
Sometimes picture windows aren’t picture windows at all. Thinking outside the box can lead to beautiful spaces. When someone says they’ve installed a picture window, most of us get an image of a large fixed window in a den or living room. Here, a creative application transforms an entryway with a large picture window transom on a home in St. James. You could choose to create this window with beautiful pattern glass, one of the five Low-E ENERGY STAR certified glass choices in our portfolio, for your picture window, which allows ample sunlight to come in without compromising your privacy. Patterned glass serves as a decorative element, increases overall energy-efficiency in the home and brightens the entrance naturally.
Creating a wall of windows is one of the most impressive replacement window designs you’ll see that fits well in diverse environments. Whether your view overlooks the water or you have a home in the suburbs, a wall of glass looks grand and inviting. Below are links to two window walls, one design teams up the elegance of traditional hinged French patio doors with easy-slide Frenchwood Gliding patio doors and the other one demonstrates how to showcase a spectacular view with a row of casement replacement windows.

Homeowner Couldn’t Be Happier with Her New Replacement Windows …
Or Renewal by Andersen of Long Island
Renewal by Andersen of Long Island recently completed one of its largest replacement window installations in Suffolk County, NY and we’re thrilled to be able to share it with you. We installed over 60 windows over four days in this beautiful house on the water in Shoreham.
This was a challenging job not just because of the sheer number of windows, but because the extremely windy location right on the Long Island Sound. The December installation during extremely cold temperatures, and even a snow storm, proved the value of Renewal by Andersen’s Winter Installation Method which minimizes opening the home to the outside climate.
While the entire 60+ window installation took just four days, you can watch a time lapse video of the installation in just four minutes below. Notice how the snow “magically” appears on the roof and ground as the video progresses through time.
The owners of this beautiful home had put off replacing their windows because they had some serious concerns regarding the size of the project (60+ windows!), the extensive custom decorating they had previously completed, the timing right before the holidays (note the holiday decorations in the photos in the link below), the climate, and a number of other things.
Check out some of the photos of the completed job here.
One Very Satisfied Customer
While we’re always proud of our crews and the hard work they put in on every job, but what’s most rewarding is when our satisfied customers tell us how happy they are with our products and our entire replacement window sales and installation system. Of course, in a project this large (it’s really like multiple jobs in one), the potential for dissatisfaction is large. This customer was so happy with Renewal by Andersen of Long Island’s performance that she agreed to be recorded talking about her experience. Here’s what she had to say…
Why did you replace your windows?
“We replaced our windows and doors because we had some problems with many of the mechanisms. We had many of them that the seals were broken, but I think one of the biggest issues is that we had a lot of mold that had gotten into the wood and we were concerned about that.
“We chose Renewal by Andersen because I had done some research about the windows that we had in the past and Renewal by Andersen was the only [replacement window] company that I found that had the process of coming and looking and the purchasing and installation of the windows and I felt like it was a whole complete package and I felt very comfortable, my husband and I both felt very comfortable that that would be a good option for us since there were so many windows to be replaced.”
What Convinced You to Replace Your Windows Now?
“We’ve been planning to do our windows for a very long time and along the way we knew that some were in more need than others but to be honest the thought of destroying the window frames and the wallpaper that I very much loved and all of the things that went along with it was almost too much to contemplate so we kept putting it off as long as we could knowing that maybe we would find a solution, which is what we found, that would accommodate all of the things that we were thinking about. And Renewal by Andersen actually did that because in the process of doing the windows nothing truly was disturbed. The exterior frames of the windows … I should say on the inside of the house, there was nothing that was damaged or disturbed in any way. The wallpaper is more than intact. Some of the rooms had new decorating done to them so that was an important consideration from our standpoint. It was the perfect scenario.”
How was your experience with Renewal by Andersen of Long Island?
“It was the perfect experience actually. I can’t say enough about them. From Brian Webb coming and doing the first initial sales experience and explaining the windows and the process of doing the windows and so on. He made us some promises that were truly kept. The house was not disturbed, the workers were organized, unbelievably fast, respectful, cleaned up. The house really was perfectly fine after they left. I had visions of being concerned about cleanup, especially because it was done before the holidays and up until the very last window was replaced the other day I can’t say enough. Everyone called … there were many people that checked on what was going on in the process. I can’t say enough about it. I wouldn’t say I would want to do it again, but if I did, they would definitely be the people I would call, because they have a very organized organization. We’re very pleased with the outcome.”
How was the installation process?
“The installation process was amazing! The staff that came, Manny being the head, were unbelievably organized and efficient. I was amazed at what they did. We had an instance here on the porch where there was a lot more water damage and they attended to the whole thing having to replace some things that they didn’t anticipate. I can’t say enough about the installers. They were absolutely wonderful. Manny gets a star from me because not only is he knowledgeable but he’s an amazing person so I appreciated all of his experience and it certainly showed here at our home.
Anything you would like to add?
“We live in an area that’s very windy. We live by the water and the air moving through the house and the temperature of the house in the wintertime was an important factor I guess, when you look back, in changing the windows. Since the windows have all been changed, it is amazingly warm in this house even on a windy day. You can’t even detect that it’s windy because it’s very quiet and peaceful, but we definitely feel that it’s going to be a savings when it comes to our energy because the house definitely keeps its temperature, which it didn’t prior to the installation of the windows. It’s just another reason to be happy.”
Would you recommend Renewal by Andersen of Long Island?
“Absolutely. In a heartbeat. I would say if you have to replace the windows, and you know that it’s something that your concerned about I would recommend in a heartbeat that you call and everybody responds to you quickly, I mean we had somebody here in two days and I think that’s another consideration. They are knowledgeable, they explain everything to you and what they said we would experience and what they said we would get we have certainly gotten. We’re totally pleased and we’re thrilled. We love the windows. Absolutely Love the Windows.”
