Construction waste is a major source of landfill waste in the United States. Every day, Renewal by Andersen replaces windows in homes that are less than 10 years old. Choosing products that are built to last is one of the most important ways to limit landfill waste. Renewal by Andersen products have a long life cycle, backed up by one of the strongest warranties you will ever find.
Innovation has been a hallmark of Andersen Corporation since its founding in 1903. From implementing “mass production” techniques in 1904 (nine years before Henry Ford), to producing the first completely assembled window unit in the industry (1926), to becoming the world’s largest specialized window frame factory in 1929, our guiding principle has always been to “make a product that is different and better.” Each step of the way we have incorporated the latest technologies, fine precision and high standards in our quest to be better.
In August 2008, the Energy Information Agency (EIA) predicted a dramatic 36% increase in home heating oil and a 23% increase in natural gas prices. Windows and doors can play a large role in a home’s annual heating budget. In fact, the U.S. Department of Energy estimates that windows can account for as much as 40% of your annual heating and cooling costs.
Renewal by Andersen windows have achieved the highest SCS certified recycled content of any window replacement company. Our Fibrex material frames and sash contain 40% reclaimed wood fiber by weight. Fibrex material offers the strength and insulating value of wood with the low maintenance features of vinyl that never requires painting and will not crack, pit, corrode or rot. We reclaim much of our wood fiber from Andersen Corporation’s wood window manufacturing facilities.
Renewal by Andersen has replaced over two million windows in over 300,000 homes. From an energy and environmental perspective, this is a significant accomplishment.
A little known, but alarming fact is that the average home uses significantly more energy and is responsible for more carbon emissions that the average automobile. Making homes more energy efficient benefits property values, neighborhood livability, and keeps older homes relevant longer. Replacing inefficient windows and doors is beneficial in lowering your energy cost and consumption, and gives you more control of your comfort and pocketbook.
Certified to meet the strictest indoor air emission standard in the United States.
Renewal by Andersen and its parent company, Andersen Corporation, are the only window companies to receive the Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) Indoor Advantage Gold certification. This certification is the strictest indoor air emission standard in the United States and meets the California Section 01350 Specifications.
