Choosing the right window does not only mean choosing the right material, color, and design. You also need to pay close attention to the hardware such as handles, hinges, friction stays, locks, and rollers. These parts of replacement windows are as visible as the glass and frame and so homeowners are advised to choose wisely among the options provided by their contractor.
In today’s post, Renewal by Andersen of New Mexico discusses the Estate™ Collection for our window units.
Apart from visibility, the safety and protection of your home also depend on the hardware. It should be able to serve you well by securely locking and opening the window. For instance, some hardware pieces are designed to be used or accessed only by adults to prevent children from easily opening the windows without supervision, such as casement windows. Should you have this kind of concern, you can always discuss it with your contractor prior to installation.
At Renewal by Andersen, we believe in educating our clients in almost everything related to their window options. Our standard hardware options include stone, white, and canvas. If you are looking for more distinct appearance, you may try our high-quality Estate collection.
The Height of Sophistication
Available in all window styles, our Estate hardware pieces are forged from solid brass. This kind of metal may require you to pay a little bit more upfront, but it will actually help you save in the long run as it requires zero maintenance and won’t require periodic replacement. Unlike other window hardware in the market, ours are not stamped and will surely withstand the test of time with proper installation.
You can also choose from eight hardware finishes, such as Bright Brass, Antique Brass, Polished Chrome, Brushed Chrome, Satin Nickel, Distressed Nickel, Oil Rubbed Bronze, and Distressed Bronze. Brass, Chrome, and Nickel finishes are made with a special coating to preserve the look and prevent tarnish and corrosion. Bronze, on the other hand, has a patina that grows more beautiful over time through its “living” finish.
Matching Customization With Style
For your double hung windows, we recommend choosing the hardware finish that matches other finishes in each of your rooms. You may choose Polished or Brushed chrome for the kitchen and Antique Brass in the living room. Combinations of window hardware and home finishes are basically endless. Part of our service is letting your creativity soar in customizing your windows with these hardware options.
