Andersen is committed to constant innovations as well as rigorous testing of performance and quality to ensure we continue setting the highest bar possible. That’s why peace of mind comes standard on all Andersen® window and door products.
So take a closer look at Andersen windows and patio doors for your replacement project, and take comfort in your decision to choose Andersen. It’s one choice that’s perfectly clear.
There are many reasons to replace your old windows, and just as many advantages. Whether you want to increase energy efficiency, update the style of your home or simply replace windows that just don’t operate like they should, Andersen has replacement solutions that are perfect for your project. When replacing windows, you want windows that are energy efficient, have high-quality materials, allow multiple design choices and deliver long-term beauty and durability.
Double-Hung Replacement Windows
Andersen has a large selection of windows that are ideal for replacement projects, including insert windows that are made specifically for replacement. If you have double-hung windows with frames still in good condition, one of the easiest ways to replace is to remove old sashes and insert a replacement window into the old existing frame.
Insert replacement windows are specially designed to save you time and money. They fit into your existing wood window frame without removing interior or exterior trim, so there’s less disruption to your home, and its original character is preserved. You simply remove your old window and install the new insert window in the existing opening. Another advantage: You can do it from inside your home, which makes a big difference if you’re replacing windows on the second level. All Andersen insert windows come with screws, shims and flexible foam backer rod to make installation easier. Learn more about insert replacement windows.
Narroline Sash Conversion Kits

Our quick conversion kit can turn them into convenient, tilt-wash double-hung windows with high-performance Low-E4® glass. It installs easily with less mess than ordinary window replacement. Plus, it matches your existing window inside and out and is backed by our full Owner-2-Owner limited warranty.
All of our replacement windows, like our new replacement casement window and tilt-wash double-hung insert window, are available in custom sizes for a precise fit. You’ll enjoy instant comfort with virtually no maintenance, plus energy savings and long-lasting beauty. Learn more about Narroline Conversion Kits.
Casement Replacement Windows
When replacing windows, you should know that building codes often require egress windows—ones that can be used as an emergency exit. Casement windows are often your best choice for egress, because they provide a larger passageway than double-hung or gliding windows. And here’s another Andersen advantage: If the other windows in your home are double-hungs, our 2¼-inch-width grille running across the center of a casement window simulates the look of a double-hung.
If you’re replacing old casement or awning windows, Andersen makes replacement windows specifically for the job. They come full prepped for easy installation with the nailing flange removed, holes predrilled, and a convenient installation kit including screws, shims and flexible foam backer rod to help you install like a pro.
If you’re planning to replace a group of windows, consider replacing them with a bay or bow window to provide a beautiful interior cove that can make a room appear larger. A wide range of double-hung, casement and picture window combinations is possible.
Just like with windows, you want patio doors that are energy efficient, have high-quality materials, allow multiple design options and display long-term beauty and durability. But there are other considerations you should take into account when you’re replacing your patio doors.
If you’re replacing a gliding patio door in your home, you may want to consider an Andersen hinged patio door instead. It gives you the option of having two doors that can open. No matter what size your current gliding patio door is, Andersen has a hinged patio door that will give you a perfect fit.
Patio doors can add more to your home than a convenient way to come and go. The right patio doors enhance the beauty of your home as well. Andersen offers patio door handle sets in eight styles and twelve finishes, including multiple varieties of brass, bronze, chrome and nickel. That makes it easy to coordinate your door hardware with other features in your home, such as lighting, cabinetry hardware and other decorative fixtures. Our Frenchwood® inswing doors even let you match your hinge finish to your handle set, for a fully integrated look. Learn more about patio door installation.
Selecting windows and doors with options and accessories that make a statement
When choosing replacement products, look at the materials used to make them. Andersen replacement windows and doors have rich wood interiors that add value to your home. So you’re not just replacing, you’re upgrading.
Replacement doesn’t mean you have to put in the same type of window as your old one. For example, put a new, convenient casement window in place of your old and hard-to-operate double-hung. If you’re changing window type, however, be sure to verify that the new window meets codes in your area.
No matter what type of project you’re doing, choosing your glass is key. Andersen high-performance Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass blocks unwanted solar heat while allowing light to stream through. The result is lower energy costs and protection for furniture, carpets and drapes by blocking out 95% of the damaging ultraviolet rays that can cause fading.
All Andersen windows and doors are available with a low maintenance white interior factory finish. It not only saves you the time and the trouble of painting, it also creates a smoother, more uniform surface that you just can’t achieve with a brush.
Grilles influence style, and the choices at Andersen are endless. You can use grilles to make your casement windows look like double-hung windows. Or you can match existing grille patterns. If you want to match existing windows, it’s a good idea to take a picture of your current windows before seeing your contractor or Andersen dealer.
With Andersen, you have a beautiful array of hardware styles and finishes to enhance your home’s décor. If you’re replacing or remodeling, it’s important to choose finishes that best complement the hardware you already have. Look at your lighting, plumbing, cabinetry and other areas for guidance.
If you’re replacing a three-panel door, you can add a stationary panel to any Andersen two-panel gliding door. They all come in custom sizes, so you’re sure to get a perfect fit.
Walls of patio doors can dramatically change the appearance of your home, both inside and out. They have the ability to bring the outside indoors by making the most of a beautiful view, as well as allowing natural light and fresh air to flow deep into the room.
