Ranch-style homes have their roots in the Spanish colonial architecture of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. This usually meant single-story buildings with low, simple roof lines and wide eaves, which helped shade windows. These windows often came with a large glass area, some of which were decorated with non-functional shutters while others came with thin profiles and metal frames. This home style also featured sliding patio doors and simple, open floor plans.
That said, replacing some of these components, especially the doors and windows, is always pretty straightforward. To help you make an informed decision, Renewal by Andersen® of Arkansas provides the following handy tips:
Ranch-style homes depend on a lot of natural lighting since they usually follow an open-concept interior. As such, the window glass should be as large as possible to distribute abundant light inside the home. As your trusted window and door replacement contractor, we offer a wide array of window types that can perfectly suit your ranch-style home – from picture and sliding to elegant lineups of specialty windows all custom designed to fit the style.

Instead, we use our exclusive material Fibrex®, a composite that combines the strength, beauty and insulation of both wood and vinyl. Our glass packages are designed for maximum efficiency.
Although ranch-style ramblers appear in many different variations, there are certain hallmarks that give them the classic appeal we’ve come to know. One of those hallmarks is the color selection.
