An open concept works with both traditional and modern home styles, and is a home design trend that’s here to stay. As one of the leading window companies in Colorado Springs, Renewal by Andersen® of Denver shares the reasons why sliding doors are the best patio doors that go with this design trend.
Dormer windows are windows found on the sloped side of a roof, bringing natural light into the space with a vaulted ceiling. Dormer windows first appeared in residential roofs in sixteenth Century Britain. The word dormer comes from the French dormeor, which suggests “sleeping space.” This type of window has a vertical orientation and is placed on a wall protruding from the roof. Dormer windows usually have their own little roof above them.
Mosquitoes are insects that feed on the blood of humans and animals. They are most active from dusk until the early hours of the morning, however, some species are also day feeders. Regardless of their traits, mosquitoes find hosts by tracking heat, scent and exhaled carbon dioxide.
Experts use a rating system called Sound Transmission Class, or STC, to rate how well a structure reduces the amount of sound entering the space. In the United States, this integer rating is widely used for ceilings, floors, partitions, walls and windows.
Fibrex® is a composite material patented by our parent company, Andersen® Corporation, that consists of 40% recycled pine wood fibers and 60% vinyl. Fibrex has many benefits that other window materials don’t offer. For example, wood has a low thermal expansion rate, so our Fibrex replacement windows are less likely to expand when exposed to heat versus other materials like 100% vinyl.
