Why You Don’t Want to Buy Replacement Windows From a Big Box Store

Working with a Renewal by Andersen or other affiliate means that your windows will exactly fit your current opening.

Replacement window and patio doors are set sizes at a big box store

When you work with a big box like Home Depot, the replacement windows and patio doors are available in predetermined height and widths. When you order your windows on the big box website, you’ll find yourself selecting the window size from a dropdown. Working with a Renewal by Andersen or other affiliate means that your windows will exactly fit your current opening. During remodels and restorations, you can save a lot of time and hassle by purchasing windows that fit your home exactly rather than forcing your home to fit the window or door.

Choosing the way your door or window opens

There you are in the store looking at the most beautiful, energy efficient patio door and you’re ready to buy it. That’s when you realize, it opens from the left and that won’t work. The only way to guarantee a patio door or window will open exactly the way you need it to open is to avoid big box stores. Working with a dealer ensures your specific situation will be considered.

Limited choices for details like locking options

Patio doors have increased options for security like foot bolts developed by Andersen windows to protect your family. Also, there’s possibly an upcharge for something like a foot bolt that are not part of the big box package. The Renewal by Andersen affiliates have more options available so that you don’t have to settle for something that isn’t what you want or need. There are more hardware options, color selections, and functionality through an official Andersen dealer than a big box store.

The glass is standard glass which is good but…

Renewal by Andersen Windows have a great performance grade for their glass. No matter if you buy your replacement windows at a place like Home Depot or directly from a Renewal by Andersen dealer, you’re getting high quality, energy efficient windows. What you won’t get from a big box is options like SmartSun Glass or other options that would be considered a special order.
