How Our Windows Can Prevent the Fading Effects of UV Rays

June 08, 2018

One of the main purposes of windows is to admit daylight into your home. Old windows, however, do not have anti-UV features, which means your furnishings are not protected. Fortunately, Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee’s replacement windows come with advanced glass packages that can help prevent the fading effects of UV rays. Read on to find out how our products can benefit you.

Effects of UV Rays

Preventing the Fading Effects of UV Rays

Many people tend to use window treatments, such as drapes and blinds, to cover their windows. This is a good way to control the amount of sunlight coming in through your windows, but it isn’t the best option. Using curtains and other window coverings can block the outdoor view and make your home dark. Plus, bulky drapes can compromise the aesthetics of your interior space.

As an alternative, invest in high-quality specialty windows that can help protect your furniture from the fading effects of UV rays. Doing so will help safeguard your belongings without compromising your home’s thermal efficiency and visual appeal.

Our Most Advanced Glass Option

At Renewal by Andersen, we offer innovative glass packages to help shield your home. For instance, High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass, our most advanced glass option, can block up to 95% of UV rays. It also has the same thermal control as tinted glass, but it has the visible light transmittance of clear glass. Moreover, this glass option minimizes noise pollution by reducing sound penetration into your home.

Other Features of Our Replacement Windows

In addition to their exclusive glass packages, our line of replacement windows come with our unique Fibrex® frames that resist fading. This composite material also combines the insulating property of wood and the low-maintenance feature of vinyl, which allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds. Additionally, our Fibrex window frames come in a variety of colors to match your interior and exterior design.

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.
