Exploring window alternatives
Have you been waiting to update your jalousie, wood frame or aluminum windows because you didn’t think there was an alternative to a vinyl window? Wait no longer. Renewal by Andersen, the replacement window division of Andersen Windows, has a new option for you.
Andersen Windows is a 115-year-old, family-owned company, highly regarded for quality and excellent customer satisfaction. The company set out more than 25 years ago to create a long-lasting, beautiful option to vinyl. The Andersen Company actually created vinyl windows in 1959, yet let the patent expire due to vinyl’s susceptibility to thermal expansion. Then, Andersen went back to the drawing board, invested $20 million in research and development, and the country’s only true composite window was born.
Andersen named the composite material Fibrex, which is made of 40 percent reclaimed wood fiber and 60 percent high carbon co-polymer. It is twice as strong as vinyl, won’t warp in the hot Hawaiian sun, and comes in nine beautiful colors. There is also the option of a real wood veneer for the interior of your home, in maple, pine or oak.
Renewal by Andersen offers every type of window made, including picture, casement, gliding, double-hung, bay and bow windows. Renewal by Andersen can even create trapezoid and specialty shaped windows. Andersen also offers the most durable and beautiful patio door systems on the market.
Replacing your home with new windows is one of the few improvements that truly change both the inside and the outside of your home at the same time. Energy efficiency, comfort and long-lasting beauty are just some of the benefits you will receive.
Barb and Hadji Mohammed finished their project last summer and were amazed at how the Smart-Sun glass changed the ambient inside temperature of their living room in Honolulu. Hadji commented that he now uses his air conditioning about half as often ever since they replaced the windows. All of the infrared heat is deflected back outside and the windows also stop 95 percent of the harmful ultraviolet rays from entering the home, thereby protecting their furniture and carpet.
Renewal by Andersen is proud to have the highest rating in customer satisfaction with J.D. Power three years in a row and was also awarded Energy Star Partner of the year for the same three years (2017-2019). With more than 3 million windows installed, in more than 300,000 homes, Renewal’s annual sales will exceed $2 billion in 2019. It is currently America’s top-selling replacement window.
