What They Are

Picture windows are fixed; they can’t be opened or closed. They have one distinct use for your home—provide you with the perfect view of the outdoors. However, there are several other notable features you can benefit from when you opt to install this window style for your home.

  • Low Maintenance. Because picture windows are fixed, they need no moveable mechanical parts that could easily get damaged from constant use. That can help you cut back on upkeep and repair costs. What’s more, newer picture units these days are made from the best yet lowest maintenance materials. Renewal by Andersen®’s replacements, for example, feature Fibrex® frames. This composite material is so durable that your windows can stay in shape for years to come even with minimal effort on your end.
  • Energy Efficiency. Picture windows are known to let an abundance of sunlight enter the home. You’d think, perhaps they can make you feel uncomfortable indoors during summer. The trick is to pick a unit that features highly-efficient glass. Renewal by Andersen’s picture units come with High-Performance™ glass packages. These are covered with energy-efficient low-emissivity coatings that help keep heat where it should. They help you maintain cool temperatures even during the hottest days and keep your utility spending in check.
  • Visibility. Natural lighting isn’t just about reducing your energy consumption. With strategically positioned windows, you can brighten up your living spaces and make them look more spacious and comfortable. A key element in the design of contemporary homes, natural light can give the visual appeal of your interiors a much-needed boost. When you install picture windows, you can impress guests with sunshine-lit rooms and perfect views at the same time.

Hear From Our Customers

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.

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!!!
