An Introduction to Andersen 100 Series Windows

The Andersen 100 Series is an innovative alternative to vinyl windows. Andersen has created Fibrex material that is as strong as wood and twice as strong as vinyl. They also offer easy maintenance and color options found in vinyl windows.

These windows are highly customizable and come in a large variety of styles. The Andersen 100 Series allows for different types of glass options that are energy efficient in all climates.

This type of window opens from a single lower sash that slides up and down.

They are an energy-efficient replacement option that works very well with historic homes in which maintaining the traditional style is essential.

Casement Window

You may have heard this type of window called a crank window. Casement windows are opened with a handle. They have a hinge on the side and can be designed to open to the left or right.

Customers who purchase casement windows like them because they open wide to offer unobstructed views and are easy to clean from the inside of the home.
