Aluminum: Strength, Beauty And Design Freedom


We use aluminum to provide a virtually maintenance-free exterior that resists the elements. Its high-definition details and versatility gives us the ability to provide any color you can imagine in practically any shape. Our pioneering process of extruding the aluminum gives you a thicker, stronger cladding than many of our competitors.

Interested in windows featuring aluminum? Check out the Andersen E-Series line of products.

E-Series

E-Series products are made of wood with an aluminum exterior to resist water and seal out the elements.
