Choose the Right Door with Our Reliable Visualizer Tool

Having the right patio doors in Champaign, IL, will add a level of design and character to your home. Just like with windows, today’s doors are now available with various design options to match the exterior. That said, it can be challenging to select the right one to complement your home.

Fortunately, you can count on Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois to provide you with an efficient way of having your ideal door. The Visualizer is an online tool available on our website that will help you select the perfect door for your home through virtual customization options. Here’s how it works:

Upload a Photo

Take a photo of your home and upload it in our Visualizer, then personalize your doors the way you want them. It will accept both interior and exterior photos. If you don’t have one, you can check our sample gallery to serve as a substitute. Just select an architectural style close to your home’s style before you start redesigning it.

Choose Your Door

The Visualizer will then ask you to set the picture scale. This means setting the actual size of your home in relation to the picture. Just stretch the line over an area based on a measurement, such as the width of your entry doors in Bloomington, IL. The tool will then give you an approximate estimate of your home’s size in relation to your door. Afterwards, the tool will ask you if the photo you have is an exterior or interior part of your home. Lastly, drag the doors you like into the orange box.

"I would recommend RBA of Central Illinois for QUALITY windows and doors. Compared to our old cheap, thin vinyl windows, Andersen blows them away. You can easily tell by how well the sliding doors fit and close, and how heavy duty they are. We also cannot hear the wind rushing through the house in inclement weather anymore! And the black window frames we went with are amazing to look at. Aaron, Al, Darrell, and Cory all were professional and went all out to finish the job, given the weather they had to deal with. I would definitely recommend. They were also on top of communicating with me given the weather delays, and what I could expect for them coming out. Five stars!"
