As a “baby boomer” myself, I can totally understand the trend that is happening where senior citizens are staying in their homes longer and longer. It is true that we are all living longer but, many of us are also working longer as well. I think the combination of wanting or needing to work longer along with the high cost of alternative retirement facilities has encouraged many seniors to prepare their existing home to be their “retirement home”.
- How can I make it maintenance free? (Or, almost maintenance free.)
- How can I make it more energy efficient?
- How can I make it more comfortable?
- How can I make it safer?
I know after having four total hip replacements, getting up on a ladder to re-glaze or paint windows is not on my to-do list. So, replacing windows (and doors) that will eliminate re-glazing and painting is a high priority.
This is a home improvement project where quality does count. You should only have to replace your windows once. That is why choosing a product that give you performance – great appearance – and lasting durability is important. Renewal by Andersen windows provide all three. Renewal by Andersen windows are made from Fibrex. Fibrex is a composite material that will not rot, split, crack, warp, or peel. It never needs to be painted. Combine that with Andersen’s High Performance Low E4, SmartSun insulating glass and you have a great window.
Renewal by Andersen has different products for different applications. Whether your home is 9 years old or 109 years old, they will have a solution that will maintain your home’s architectural integrity.
If you are a senior citizen (like me), and want to protect the investment in your home — quality windows and doors is a step in the right direction. No more scraping and painting, no re-glazing, no more putting up and taking down storm windows – but, most importantly, no more ladders.
Remember, for over 100 years, Andersen has been producing quality windows and doors for homes just like yours.
