Using The Right Materials In The Right Places

Every day we have a team of engineers hard at work determining how to improve our windows and doors. Every aspect of our products are scrutinized so that each product that goes into your home will provide years of faithful service. 

Materials are one way that we've led the industry in innovation. We've concluded that it takes a carefully orchestrated use of materials to achieve superior performance, low-maintenance exteriors and long-lasting durability our customers deserve.

Wood Windows and Doors

Wood

It’s been at the core of our products for over 100 years. We use wood for strength and rigidity in our frames and sash, beauty on our interiors and its overall thermal performance is hard to beat.

Vinyl Windows and Doors

Vinyl

Vinyl on its own provides an excellent low-maintenance exterior for any window.  Where Andersen has innovated with vinyl is by using it as a protective cladding for its wood core windows.

Composite Windows and Doors

Composite (Fibrex® Material)

We've developed a material that is 2x as strong as vinyl, performs better when exposed to extreme temperatures and delivers exteriors that won’t fade, flake, blister or peel.

Aluminum Andersen Windows

Aluminum

We use aluminum to provide a virtually maintenance-free exterior that resists the elements.
Fiberglass Windows and Doors

Fiberglass

Fiberglass is a tough, weather-resistant material. We use it to keep the exteriors maintenance-free and combine it with beautiful wood interiors.
