3 Window Features That Are Ideal for Aging in Place

Your needs as a homeowner change as time goes by. You may eventually find that your current home no longer suits your activities, and this is especially normal for people aging in place. That said, it’s very important to remodel your home and come up with a design that better fits your needs as you get older.

3 Window Features That Are Ideal for Aging in Place


Finding windows that are ideal for homeowners aging in place is pretty easy nowadays. In this post, Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis, a window and door replacement specialist, lists three window features that are essential to homeowners aging in place. If you’re switching to new windows, you should definitely consider these window options.

Easy to Operate

Opening and closing your window shouldn’t require so much effort from you. That’s why sliding windows are often perfect for those aging in place. Another great option are windows with simple, smooth cranks.

Offers Privacy

Fortunately, there are several options on how you can add privacy to your windows. These include patterned acrylic blocks, decorative windows or clings or film that create a frosted or patterned look on window glass. You can also opt for smart glass technology, which allows you to lighten or darken the tint of your replacement windows using a remote or smartphone app.

Minimal Upkeep

Window frames made of wood usually require sanding and repainting, and they’re susceptible to rot. Renewal by Andersen windows, however, are made from Fibrex® composite material that’s known for being low-maintenance. They’re very easy to clean, and they come with zero to little hassle.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
