Are you planning to get new windows to replace your old and worn-out ones? Are you wondering how to select the right windows for your home? As a professional that can provide you with top quality replacement windows in Waukesha, our team would like to give you a brief orientation about windows to help you with your replacement project.

One of the lessons you need to learn is knowing the different parts of your windows and their respective functions. Learning how your windows work is the key to selecting the right ones for your home. These are the parts that you need to know about:

• Frame – This enclosure supports the major parts of your window. The material used for the frame can affect how the windows perform.
• Spacer – This part of a double- or triple-pane window separates the glazing. It provides structural integrity and helps improve the thermal performance of a window.
• Glass – This allows the entry of light into your home. It often comes with coatings, such as low-emissivity coating. This type of coating helps improve energy efficiency by regulating heat transfer and blocking harmful UV rays, which can damage your furniture and other home fixtures.

Now that you know about these parts, you will be able to choose windows with the right features for your home. Our windows, for instance, are equipped with frames made of Fibrex® and High Performance™ Low-E4® glass. With a superior framing material and a top quality glazing, your new windows will surely offer the best performance. Fibrex will ensure that your windows are strong and durable while our High Performance Low-E4 glass will help regulate heat, keeping your home comfortable and energy-efficient.

When replacing windows, don’t just focus on style. With superior components and features, our windows are great home improvement investments.

For various window styles like double hung windows in Waukesha, Renewal by Andersen uses advanced technology like Fibrex and High Performance Low-E4 glass. For more information on window components or our products, feel free to give Renewal by Andersen of Milwaukee a call today.

Hear From Our Customers

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.

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.
