Things to Consider When Shopping for a Door Handle

A door handle adds a unique touch to your patio or entry door. The right style can make the door’s design look great, which is why you need to carefully assess the hardware to make sure you are getting the right one. Renewal by Andersen® of Southwest Missouri, your local source of entry doors and double hung replacement windows, shares the things you need to consider when shopping for a door handle.

The Look

Even with its small size, a door handle impacts the overall look of your home both inside and out. It can be overwhelming knowing that there are so many of them in the market in terms of style and profile. For this, consider the overall look of your home. A vintage-looking brass handle, for instance, is a great fit for homes with traditional architecture.

The Feel

Comfort and ease of use are also important when selecting your door handle. After all, you are to use this countless times so you want to make sure it feels good in your hand. Don’t buy one that is tricky to use or causes discomfort. Also, consider who will be using the door, taking into account any physical limitations they might have.

The Cost

Take note that, when purchasing a new door, it does not come with a handle as well as latches and hinges. These are sold separately, which means you have to decide on the hardware style that not only fits your style, but also your budget.

"Excellent service and product! They checked in with me every few weeks while we were waiting for the order. I was impressed with Sam, who measured my windows and headed the installation crew. He was respectful and patient with his team. They cleaned up after themselves. Before the new windows I had huge windows that didn’t open. Now I feel much safer and get better temperatures in those rooms."

"My experience with Anderson Renewal was amazing! From the first meeting with Miranda to choose my windows and doors to the installation provided by Tim and his crew was a pleasure! I just bought a home built in the 1960's that needed new windows and a new double front door with sidelights. As everyone knows Anderson Windows are great, but it was the people I interacted with from Anderson that made it such a great experience. It took three days for the windows and door to be installed and they "worked" every minute they were here. My huge front door took most of the day to install because they had to put in a new header and other improvements to make it fit! They even put up new drywall on the inside. Many people in the neighborhood have stopped by to comment on my beautiful front door! I think the crew left my house cleaner than it was before they started! Constantly cleaning up after themselves. I am thrilled with my windows and feel lucky to have met the team at Anderson."

"Very professional staff . No pressure sales. The job they do is neat and clean, no cleanup left for the owner. Communication is great. Always informed on the status of of your product, AND the tin of cookies you receive afterwards is a pleasant plus."
