Is It Time to Replace Your Windows or Doors?
If you answer ‘yes’ to any of the questions below, it may be time to replace your windows or doors.

1. Is your home more than 15 years old?
Window and patio door technology has come a long way over the last 15 years. If you’re noticing that your windows are no longer performing as they should it may be time to replace your windows or doors. Andersen® windows and patio doors can help improve the look of the home, lower utility bills, reduce noise transmission and improve overall energy efficiency.

2. Do your windows or doors leak water or let in drafts?
If your windows and patio doors are no longer keeping the outside elements outside, it is time to replace. Many homeowners are surprised to find that the cost of replacing failing windows can be offset over time by overall household energy cost savings.

3. Are your windows or doors difficult to operate?
If your windows refuse to open or get stuck in the up or down position, it can cause a major headache and keep you from fully enjoying your home. Andersen replacement windows feature high-quality, durable and sustainable materials designed to stand the test of time.*

4. Are your windows or doors rotting, blistering or peeling?
Frequent maintenance, repairs and paint touch-ups required by old wood windows can be time-consuming and costly. If a window is rotting or falling apart, you should replace it right away. Andersen replacement products withstand nature’s elements, made from materials that won’t fade, flake, blister, chalk or peel.

5. Do your windows or doors look drab, outdated or out of place?
High-quality replacement windows that match the style of your home can make a big impact. Andersen has perfected the art of creating windows, doors and exterior trim options that work in harmony, not only with each other, but also with your home’s architecture.
