Looking for a New View

This early 2000’s home in Maple Grove was the perfect project for a before/after comparison.

The homeowners wanted to replace inefficient vinyl windows with a higher-performing, longer lasting option from Andersen. Naturally, we suggest Andersen A-Series due to the variety of options and stand-out architectural beauty. They also wanted to lighten up the interior of the home for a more updated look with wider, white trim.

In addition to creating a cleaner look in the home, A-Series windows and doors a designed with architectural style and alignment in mind. This house has 5 different types of windows – double hung, transom, arch, casement, and a Frenchwood patio door – and with colonial grille patterns, it was important that the windows have the same reveals and same look throughout the home. They share features such as sight lines, glass setback, interfaces and size grid, so they’re easy to work with and easy to specify. Additionally, these are the best-performing, most energy-efficient windows and doors Andersen has ever offered.

Take a look at the work from one our installation crews and scroll through the before and after window gallery. For more information about Andersen A-Series, click here.
