Recycling Prompts for Your Old Windows

No matter how well they’re taken care of, even the best kinds of windows are bound to show signs of wear and tear. There’s simply no way around it — windows will reach the end of their service life and would eventually need to be replaced. After years of keeping you protected from the elements, is the landfill really the only option as your windows’ disposal site?

Recycling Prompts for Your Old Windows

In this article, home replacement windows company Renewal by Andersen® of Rapid City shares a few ideas regarding new uses for your old windows.

Hanging Garden

Show off what your green thumb can do by growing a vertical garden using your old window frame. Succulents are ideal for this project, but you can choose other types of plants (depending on how advanced your gardening skills are).

Window-to-Door Treatment

Getting a casement window replacement project soon? Repurpose window frames and turn them into cabinet doors. All you need are table legs (pro tip: these can be bought from thrift stores) and you’ve got yourself a conversation piece.

Fine Fabric

After removing the window frames, you can replace the glass panes with fabric and hang it on your wall as an alternative art piece. This way, your windows can still be part of your home. The only difference now is that you’ll be looking at them, not through them. You can go the rustic route by choosing to display a homemade quilt. You can even use an heirloom quilt and put it up on display so future generations can appreciate it.

"We recently replaced all of the windows in our home. I was most impressed with the friendly staff who knew what I wanted before I did. They seemed to be able to find the perfect window for each one we replaced. We are very pleased with the result. From beginning to end they were professional and helpful. I would highly recommend Renewal by Anderson."
