Anderson’s history is not just about doing things right and delivering unparalleled quality windows, but it is very specific to place.

Hans Anderson put his stake down on the bank of the St. Croix River just downstream from Stillwater, MN. Initially, it was the best transportation route for getting logs to the mill, but over time, the river became a symbol for the sustainable mission of Anderson. As part of the National Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 1968, the St. Croix River was selected and listed as a Wild and Scenic River.

Since that time, Anderson has been a major supporter of the preservation efforts of the river.



We partnered with Anderson to bring you unique replacement window options from all of Anderson’s line of top-performing windows, but don’t take our word for it. Here’s what Consumer’s Digest says about Anderson 400 Series Replacement Windows winning the Consumer Digest Best Buy Award.
