Since the Perma-Shield cladding system was first introduced in 1966, window and door performance has been on a steady track of continuous innovation and improvement. Perma-Shield is now a key feature of our 400 Series product line. In our pursuit to offer the best solutions to meet our customer’s needs, we thought we’d share the newest features we’ve added to the 400 Series offering over the past couple of years:
Andersen® Exterior Trim System – Why use low maintenance windows, doors and siding, then choose wood trim that needs painting every few years? The Andersen Exterior Trim System installs in as little as 5 minutes and comes in a range of styles from contemporary to traditional. Not only is it fast to install, but ordering it with the windows consolidates a step in calculating and purchasing building materials too. Andersen trim is made of Fibrex® material, a time-tested 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. Color matched options coordinate with Andersen A-Series, 400 Series and 200 Series windows and doors.
Tilt-Wash Double-Hung Insert Window – We now make an insert version of our popular 400 Series tilt-wash double-hung window prepped for fast, easy replacement. The product features a 3 ¼” jamb depth for convenient replacement, and each window comes with an install kit containing key materials needed to complete the job: instructions, screws, shims and backer rod. In addition, each unit comes with its own exterior stop covers for a clean, finished look when the job is done.
Replacement Casement – The Replacement Casement, prepped for quick, easy installation and available without an installation flange, is 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. An installation kit comes with each window and includes innovative, self-hanging shims for consistent accuracy in installation, backer rod to increase the durability of sealant joints, fasteners and instructions.
