It Starts with the Etched Logo
Unlike most windows today, once the sticker is removed from the glass there is no brand identification left on the window. Every Andersen® window has the AW logo etched into the bottom right corner of every piece of glass and a sticker with a unique ID number and a toll free number. The ID number tells Andersen® everything from style and size to color and type of glass. No guessing if your window should ever need any parts replaced. Hmm… why would a window manufacturer not put their name somewhere on their window? Could it be that they don’t want to service their own windows?
Andersen® employs a Nationwide Network of specially trained Service Providers to promptly handle your issues. In many cases there will be no charge if the service is performed within the specified warranty period. Andersen’s ® 20 year non-prorated glass warranty and 10 year frame, components and hardware are fully transferable. No “original owner only” limitations. This could be a major selling point when it comes time to sell your home. Go to www.andersenwindows.com/support/warranty for all the details.
There are two installation methods for replacing the windows in your home. The comparison below shows the major difference between the two methods. Each installation is different so the information is meant as a general guideline. The style and materials your current windows are made of, may dictate the proper installation method as well.
- A good choice if the exterior frame is in good condition
- Most common type of replacement
- Interior trim remains intact. No paint line concerns
- Most appropriate if you have custom window treatments
- Slight loss of glass due to “window within a window” concept
Full Frame Installation
- Usually necessary when the frame of the old windows is rotted
- All interior trim is new
- Maximizes amount of light through new window
- More expensive than insert method due to increased labor and materials.
- More insulation between new frame and rough opening
