During this time of year when windows are likely opened to let in fresh air, Andersen Corporation is encouraging homeowners to familiarize themselves with ways to help prevent window-related accidents.

Windows and doors do more than provide views, sunlight and breezes; they can provide an important path to escaping a fire or emergency. Yet left open, windows can be a potential fall hazard. We believe that companies making products for the home should help increase safety awareness in the home.

Andersen offers the following dos and don’ts:

DO:

  • Close and lock windows and doors
  • Position beds and other furniture away from windows
  • Consider installing window opening control devices or window guards
  • Make an emergency escape plan, and include a window as one of the escape routes

DON’T

  • Leach young children unsupervised
  • Depend on insect screens and keep children from falling out of windows
  • Paint, nail or seal windows shut
  • Forget about window and door safety when making repairs to your home

As part of its LookOut For Kids® window safety program, Andersen is introducing updated materials and tips to help educate consumers and caregivers. To learn more about window and door safety, download our free Look Out for Kids brochure.

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.
