Window hardware is a small yet essential part of replacement windows. The right window hardware can make the difference in terms of durability, beauty, and ease of operation. Renewal by Andersen® is proud to offer the Estate™ Hardware Collection, in addition to our standard hardware options for our replacement windows. In this blog, we share its features and benefits.
Estate™ Hardware Collection: Features and Benefits
Secure and Reliable
It goes without saying that you need window hardware that’s strong and reliable. Where most window hardware is stamped and rolled from sheets of brass, Estate hardware is forged from solid blocks of brass. This makes it several times more durable, ideal for extended use over the years. Estate hardware is ideal for more than just handles and hinges. Its inherent strength makes it the perfect window and patio door lock. With Estate hardware, you can rest easy knowing that your home is secure.
Beautiful and Long-Lasting Finishes
All Estate hardware options are protected from tarnishing and corrosion, thanks to a special and natural-looking coating that seals the finish in. This hard-wearing coating applies to all rigid and moving hardware options. So whether it’s the crank for the casement windows or the handles on sliding windows, you can count on Estate hardware to stay beautiful for a long time.
Estate hardware comes in a wide selection of hardware finishes: brushed or polished chrome, satin or distressed nickel, bright or antique brass, and distressed or oil-rubbed bronze. The bronze options grow a green patina that turns even more beautiful over time. The sheer number of finishes give you more latitude in choosing the hardware finish that you want, without compromising on its other features.
Low maintenance is a quality that our replacement windows are known for, and this extends to the hardware options that we offer. The coating on Estate hardware finishes does not require steel brushes or jets of water to clean. It requires the same care needed by our Fibrex® material frames, perhaps a soft brush for those hard-to-reach details – no chemicals or special tools needed.
