Bayport, Minn. (January 2011) — The Andersen® casement window that set the standard for performance and durability is now available prepped for replacement jobs with quick, easy installation and custom sizing to 1/8 inch.
“We’ve been making casement windows since 1932 and began making this particular window in the mid-1960s. It’s improved steadily over the years as we’ve introduced glass technologies, new materials and other energy efficiency features, but it’s still the casement window that has set the standard in the industry,” said Craig Blomker, marketing manager for Andersen. “Bringing together these new replacement features along with custom sizing and the materials needed to get the job done is just another step for us in giving our customers just what they said they wanted.”
The Andersen 400 Series Replacement Casement Window comes pre-drilled with through-the-jamb installation holes allowing for installation from inside or outside the home. Special replacement extension jambs preserve original alignment of trim and paint lines. It also comes without the nailing flange which is useful in brick, siding or other applications.
An install kit with each window includes screws, shims, backer rods and full instructions. Innovative, self-hanging shims are supplied with each unit for consistent quality installation. Backer rod provides appropriate backing for sealants and increases the durability of sealant joints.
The Andersen® 400 Series Replacement Casement Window is available for ordering through Intelligent Quote (iQ) software version 10.2. Available styles include operating and stationary units, and awning style windows.
