Replacing your entrance door can bring new life and excitement to your home, as it did for this recent All American Window & Door customer.

There are many things to keep in mind when replacing your entrance door. Appearance is one of the top considerations when selecting a new entrance door and there are so many options today … color, paint or stain finishes; glass placement; and style. At All American Window and Door, we offer our entry doors in more than 80 paint and 8 stain colors, with thousands of decorative glass combination.

The durability, maintenance and insulation are important considerations when selecting a new entrance door. Steel and fiberglass entrance doors offer all of the style options you want as well as extreme durability and replicate the look and texture of a real wood appearance. Timbergrain entrance doors offers the variety of different species. You have the option to pick from cherry, mahogany, fir, oak and knotty alder.  Your door should not crack, rot or swell and needs to withstand Wisconsin’s weather extremes.  Another benefit is that steel and fiberglass entrance doors need very little maintenance. These entrance doors have long-lasting performance and beauty for years to come

You can truly find your dream entrance door at All American Window and Door!






It’s a bright, cold, winter day in mid-February in Wisconsin which means it’s the perfect time to install a new window, right? And here you are on the job site, putting your tool belt on and carrying a heavy triple pane window into a customer’s house when WHOOPS… your feet go flying out from under you because the walkway hasn’t been properly salted. There goes the window. There goes the job. Here comes expensive doctor’s visits and unnecessary time off. [Read more…]

Soft Lite Elements Windows ReviewAs you might imagine, we at All American Window and Door love the Elements window by Soft-Lite. As one of our signature products in Milwaukee, we feel it is quite simply the best vinyl window on the market today. We do realize that sometimes, when trying to convey our excitement, we might get a little… overly enthusiastic. Luckily for us, we’ll break down and describe many of the Elements window’s features in a nice, clear manner… But because we just can’t help ourselves, here are some of the details:

12-point fusion welded joints No fasteners! No construction! This means no pesky seams for weather to exploit.

Cove moulding with a handcrafted bevel instead of a boring, flat box that looks like it’s been glued into the opening. This gives great ‘curb appeal’. [Read more…]

What do you think of when you think of Christmas? Is it a guy in a big red suit cramming himself into your chimney? Is it a wee bairn laying in a manger? Is it your Uncle Ole’s lutefisk that remains untouched on the platter for the 25th year in a row? Or is it windows and doors? It’s totally windows and doors, isn’t it?

Well it should be.

How are you going to gaze out upon the freshly fallen snow through old, drafty windows? Where are you going to hang your Christmas wreath if not on a nice, new steel door? However are you going to be blinded by your neighbor’s light display if not through brand new, high-efficiency windows?

We here at All American Window and Door LOVE the holidays. Some of us, maybe, just a little too much as we tend to start singing Christmas tunes in the office about mid-June. And we want you to appreciate the holidays and all the binge eating, present unwrapping, and numerous other family traditions you can enjoy from the comfort of a home that knows how to keep the weather out and the Christmas spirit in.

Call now to set up a free estimate. Our gift to you for Christmas. Then you can start looking forward to your brand new windows to hang the lights from NEXT Christmas. Just imagine how your tree will look standing next to one of our wonderful bay windows, or how your lights will look reflecting off the glass of one of our quad casements. Let our high efficiency windows put a little more presents money in your pocket over the next year and every year after.

After all, ‘tis the season to think about windows and doors!

The crisp fall air has descended upon us, turning our thoughts to the upcoming season and all it brings.  Leaves turning darker hues as they fall from their trees, the crispness in the air, home-carved jack-o-lanterns, caramel apples, neighborhoods full of Halloween trick-or-treaters, Thanksgiving turkey dinners, and the soon-to-follow Christmas season…sweater weather is definitely on the horizon!

It seems that we here at AAWD are an office full of autumn-loving people.  Just for grins, I asked around and found out what sorts of things specifically that we all love best about the season.  [Read more…]
