None of this would have been possible without our parent company’s dedication to sustainable principles. For more than 100 years, the Andersen Corporation has exemplified environmental responsibility in its manufacturing process and choice of materials and sources. Because of this, more and more homeowners are now benefiting from greener windows, including picture windows in Waukesha.

Andersen’s First Environmental Product Declaration

Recently, Andersen Corporation has released its first Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for a Renewal by Andersen® double-hung window. This accompanies the release of its Product Category Rule (PRC), a joint effort with other leaders in the window industry.

PRC aims to increase transparency about the manufacturer’s efforts to reduce the environmental impact of a product. It also defines the scope in which life cycle assessments and EPDs are done. Certification systems in green building, including the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design rating system acknowledge and award the use of products with published EPD.

Andersen’s first EPD focuses on the cradle-to-gate lifecycle impacts of its Renewal by Andersen® double-hung window. This uses exclusive Fibrex® material for frames and insulated glass units. Fibrex consists of 40 percent clean, reclaimed wood fiber by weight. For its double-pane, insulated glass, Renewal by Andersen® uses an argon gas blend in the airspace and Low-E coatings for superior thermal efficiency.

“Publishing our first EPD is an important step in Andersen’s sustainability journey,” states Jim Weglewski, Vice-President of Sustainability. “Increasing product transparency supports our ongoing efforts to produce durable, energy-efficient products that help customers reduce energy consumption, lower utility costs and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”

Hear From Our Customers

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.
