Know the Founding of Renewal by Andersen® Replacement Window

July 17, 2014

Andersen Corporation manufactures over 6 million wood windows and doors each year in its 3 million square foot facility in Bayport, Minnesota and has revolutionized the window and door business for more than 110 years.

It was founded on the 25th of July, 1903 by Danish Immigrant Hans Andersen. Together with his family in Hudson, Wisconsin, they tended to logs that arrived via the St. Croix River and started the Andersen Lumber Company. In 1929, it was changed to Andersen Frame Company before finally being renamed in 1937 to what is now known as Andersen Corporation.

Today, the company is as an international enterprise headquartered in Bayport, Minnesota and employs more than 9,000 at more than 20 locations across North America. Available in 100 markets including Milwaukee, it easily is one of the largest replacement window and door companies in the country.

To cater to homeowners who want simple, reliable window solutions, the Renewal® by Andersen brand was launched in 1995 in Minnesota, with a promise to provide replacement windows with low-maintenance, energy-efficient and custom-made features.

Renewal by Andersen® offers hung, transom, awning, casement and picture models in 100, 200, 400, and A-Series windows. Bow/bay designs are only available in 400 Series. The 100 Series products are made of Fibrex™ – a highly durable composite material made of 60% thermoplastic polymer and 40% wood fiber, while the 200, 400, and A-Series are wood with vinyl cladding on the outside.

In 2000, the Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee was founded. We understand that the city, which lies along the shores and bluffs of Michigan River, experiences rapidly changing weather.

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!!!

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.

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.
