New Andersen® Exterior Trim System: Fast Install, Free of Water Management System and Made of Fibrex® Material Too

Bayport, Minn. (January 2011) — Andersen introduces a new trim system that installs in about 5 minutes and comes in a wide range of styles from contemporary to traditional.

The Andersen® Exterior Trim System works with Andersen A-Series, 400 Series and 200 Series product lines. Trim is available in 11 colors and a wide range of architectural styles to meet the needs of the most discerning contractors and homeowners.

“We’re very excited about this product, especially how quick and easy it is to install,” said Mark Pominville, marketing manager at Andersen. “Our revolutionary snap-on feature lets you trim out an average house in about half a day, compared to two days using traditional trim.”

How quick is quick? Pominville says an average window can be trimmed out in about 5 minutes. The design eliminates measuring, cutting, mitering, nailing and filling nail holes while providing an exceptional fit and finish. Homeowners will find that Andersen trim adds a long-lasting* decorative element to their home that never needs painting.

Water management is always a concern when building any structure. The Andersen Trim System works completely independent of the water management system of a window or patio door. “You just install the window or door per the installation instructions,“ Pominville says. “There’s no modification to accommodate for installation of the trim because it works completely separate from the window or door.”

Andersen trim is made of Fibrex® material, a revolutionary composite combining the strength and stability of wood with the low-maintenance features of vinyl. Fibrex material has twice the stiffness of vinyl, withstands temperature changes better than vinyl and can be made in dark colors.
