Patio doors are replaced for a variety of reasons. From enhancing your home’s design to improving energy efficiency, any reason you have for swapping out an old patio door is valid.
Given how windows are one of your home’s most visible design elements, it pays to keep them looking good all year round. One effective way to do this is by dressing them up with a trim, or window casing. These are a decorative element that creates a frame around your window opening, helping cover the gap between the jamb and adjacent wall. But how do you make sure your window trim can match your home’s interior?

Condensation is one of the most common window issues, but seeing it form on your windows is not always something you should worry about. What’s serious and what isn’t will actually depend on the current season. Renewal by Andersen® of Denver, your premier window installation expert, discusses the main differences between window condensation in summer and winter.
What makes condensation in the summer different?
Condensation in windows can happen in both hot and cold weather. In summer, condensation usually occurs when hot outdoor air is exposed to the cold surface of your window glass. While this looks unsightly, it’s not actually worrisome. This doesn’t mean your windows are already failing and will require replacement. In fact, the large difference between outdoor and interior temperatures means your existing windows are still keeping airtight seals.
Is window condensation in winter harmful?
It actually is. What occurs is the inverse of what happens during summer. Window condensation in winter, when overlooked, may lead to mold growth. Aside from adverse health effects, this can cause structural damage to your windows and significant energy loss in your home. You can reduce or even prevent this, however, by lowering humidity levels in your living spaces through proper ventilation. For a more permanent solution, you can invest in high-quality window replacement instead.
Why should you upgrade your windows?
