There are a lot of window and door companies to choose from in the Kansas City area. Obviously, not all of them are the same. At All-Weather Window, Doors and Siding, we go out of our way to make sure our customers are satisfied. That means we do things that our competitors simply don’t. That’s one reason we have so many repeat customers. We believe personal service is what sets us apart from our competition. Here are eight ways we provide personal service that make all the difference to our customers:
We Custom Match Window Paint/Stain Color
When you get new replacement windows, most window companies offer only three or four colors to paint or stain your windows. These colors rarely match your interior trim. With All-Weather, we can take a sample of your existing trim and match the color exactly for a professional and seamless look. We even use color matched wood putty so your door and trim looks flawless!
We Paint/Stain Your Door before Installation, In Our Shop, Not in Your Home
When you buy a new replacement door, did you think to ask if it comes painted or not? Most people don’t. An unpainted door, installed in your home requires you to paint it yourself or hire a painter. Either solution involves days of sanding, sealing, painting, top coat, drying time, etc. not to mention the mess and inconvenience of not being able to close the door until the finish dries.
At All-Weather, we let you select the stain color ahead of time, we finish it our shop with paint you provide, and install it in your home ready to use – no odor, sanding, painting or mess. We spray our doors instead of using brushes for a perfect finish. We even cut all the trim outside to eliminate sawdust in your home.
We Match Door & Window Trim Styles
There are dozens of different trim styles available. We take the time to match your new trim to your existing trim so your doors and windows fit seamlessly into your décor. We even have access to companies who specialize in old trim. They have the original knives used to create trim decades ago so they can match trim styles from the turn of the century! You can even get specific species of wood that aren’t popular today. If you have an older home in Brookside, for instance, we can most likely still match the trim.
We Use Schlage Hardware on All Entry Doors
In industry tests, the part of your door that gives way to let intruders in is often the hardware. Even a deadbolt can be bent if enough pressure is applied. That’s why we use Schlage hardware, the most stylish and secure brand. Schlage has been in business for over 90 years and is one of the most trusted brands in the industry.
All of our doors are installed with Schlage strike plates, deadbolts, knobs and locks, and can usually be keyed alike to minimize the number of keys you need to keep on your key ring. For you minimalists out there, Schlage also offers a keyless entry deadbolt that just needs a number that you enter on a keypad to unlock the door.
We Install a Jamb Brace with Exterior Doors
The entry door is only as strong as its weakest point. Usually the first thing to give way when an intruder tries to kick down your door is the wooden jamb surrounding your door itself. Your door and hardware may stay intact, but it will swing open when the wooden jamb is broken. Wood is much softer than metal. That’s why almost all of our exterior replacement doors are installed with a Jamb Brace. Jamb Brace is a strong metal plate that reinforces your door’s deadbolt with something much sturdier than wood. Simply put, your door cannot be kicked down with a Jamb Brace installed. We recommend a Jamb Brace on every exterior door we install, and many cities require it by code.
Our Employees Have Years of Experience
Experience is a quality that you can’t appreciate until you’ve worked with someone and they ask you the right questions – questions you wouldn’t have even thought to ask because you had no idea they were important. The All-Weather team has over 200 years of collective window, door and siding experience. Our service manager, production manager, and general manager have all been around Andersen windows and doors for over 20 years each. Add our other employees, sales reps and installation crews, and you’ve got a team of smart, savvy, experts on your side.
Running Down Old Window and Door Parts
Andersen windows have been around for 110 years and because they are quality windows, they last. So if you have an older home with older Andersen windows, you may need to replace a part occasionally. All-Weather is the company to call. We once helped a lady find a replacement crank from a 1939 Andersen window! We stock many of the most common replacement parts, and even some not-so-common parts for many different brands as well.
The Only Andersen Showroom in KC Designed for Homeowners
We are proud to be Kansas City’s premier Andersen Circle of Excellence showroom displaying the finest Andersen windows and patio doors.
