Is a name-brand window worth every cent? What can it offer that a lesser-known brand or generic window can’t? These are just some of the questions homeowners encounter while shopping for windows.
It’s always a good idea to have a home fire escape plan. Windows are an important aspect of the plan, as they can serve as a means of escape for you and your family during emergencies. As such, you need to be careful not to unintentionally block access to them.
Cleaning windows is one of those tasks that’s easier said than done. You need to use the right cleaning solution and procedure to avoid the risk of damaging your windows. In today’s post, Renewal by Andersen® of Dallas and Fort Worth, your replacement windows specialist, lists down the do’s and don’ts of window cleaning.
Design and energy efficiency should be top considerations when investing in new windows. But there is another important factor that many homeowners tend to overlook: noise reduction. Windows that block ambient noise from outside provide immense value, given the numerous health benefits a relaxing and quiet home environment provides.
Whether you already have them or are currently thinking about investing in French doors, this post by Renewal by Andersen® of Dallas and Fort Worth will help you. Here are a few notes on the history of French doors, the best materials for these doors, and the benefits you can expect to enjoy when you make this investment for your home.
French doors became popular in the 17th Century, during the French Renaissance period. Commonly installed on balconies, French doors provided a way for as much light and air to enter a home as possible, in as stylish a manner as that period could command. To this day, French doors serve as a great interior as well as exterior design focal point for homes in almost any architectural style.
When it comes to doors and windows, your choice of material is critical. The right products can improve your home’s energy efficiency and weather protection, while the wrong ones can invite a host of problems into your home.

Installing French doors will not only increase your home’s curb appeal but can help you create a more energy-efficient home too.

You can expect better ventilation at home too as you can simply open French doors to improve air circulation on particularly humid days.
