Aging-in-place refers to a home design concept that helps accommodate people of all ages and abilities. As you enter your golden years, you’ll want to be able to live at home safely and comfortably for as long as possible. That’s why it’s a good idea to start incorporating aging-in-place features when investing in home improvement. One way to do this is through door and window replacement.
Renewal by Andersen® of San Francisco, your top door and window company, shares how these projects make this possible.
- Allows Greater Access to Natural Light. You probably already know that exposure to pure sunlight is highly beneficial to health. Some of these advantages include a boost to vitamin D and improved mood and sleep patterns. Investing in newer, better windows or doors provides increased access to natural light. You should check out the top-quality picture windows and sliding contemporary doors offered by Renewal by Andersen of San Francisco. They come with sleek frames and expansive glass that allows more light to stream into your home, making it easier for you to see what you’re doing—all while helping you stay healthy.
- Takes into Account Mobility Issues. When planning a doors or windows replacement, make sure to choose units that are effortless to operate. For instance, you can get casement windows that open and close by turning a crank, making them especially handy for those with mobility and postural issues. You can also invest in sliding windows. They glide via a track so operating these windows doesn’t use much strength—all you need to do is push one pane to the side.
- Reduces Constant Door and Window Maintenance. You should be able to relax and focus more on your hobbies when you’re older. This means getting doors and windows that won’t have you sanding, repainting, or repairing every other month. Just turn to Renewal by Andersen of San Francisco for this. Our replacement windows use exclusive Fibrex® material, a composite that offers the strength and insulating value of wood and blends them with the low-maintenance performance of vinyl. This allows for windows that won’t crack, chip, or corrode no matter what the weather throws at them.
You can also enjoy a thermally comfortable and energy-efficient home when you choose us for your window replacement. We use advanced High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass in our Fibrex® windows. Together, they keep an airtight seal that prevents energy loss, and reduces heat transfer into your home, keeping it cool and comfortable all year round.
