Choosing the Right Door Hardware for Your Home

Sometimes, it’s the small details that can create the biggest impact. This is especially true for door hardware, which helps define the overall appearance of your entry or patio door. But how exactly do you choose the right one for your home?

Choosing the Right Door Hardware for Your Home

  1. Consider a door handle or latch. Knobs may be the familiar and traditional option for most exterior doors, but you’ll find that handles or latches are the more attractive option. A door latch for your hinged entry or patio door, for instance, is easier to operate than a knob, making it extremely practical when you’re living with a senior parent or family member with mobility issues. If you have a gliding patio door, the staple option is a door handle you can use to smoothly slide the unit to the side.

  2. Pick a metallic hardware finish. The simple fact is that metallic finishes in hardware remains an exceptional choice. The door hardware offered by Renewal by Andersen® of Southwest Missouri comes in a wide selection of metallic finishes, including brass, chrome, bronze and nickel. These add an elegant and timeless look to your entry or patio door, making it an instant focal point. We also offer the same metallic finishes for our replacement windows through our Estate™ Hardware Collection.

  3. Get a durable locking system. Aside from design and functionality, security should also be taken into account when choosing door hardware for your home. Renewal by Andersen of Southwest Missouri can help you with this. Our gliding patio doors come with a unique Andersen® reach-out locking system that pulls the door snugly into the jamb for increased weather resistance and security. You also have the choice to add an auxiliary foot lock. Our hinged door options, on the other hand, are available with a five-point locking system. Plus, all of our patio doors come with an exterior keyed lock to ensure they remain secure.

"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."
