Andersen Windows Weather the Storm
Whether your winters are harsh or your part of the country experiences harsh weather from hurricanes, it’s time to make your home air-tight and secure. Storm windows are one way to accomplish this. A good-quality storm window should provide durable protection without sacrificing appearance. The Andersen Window & Door Company has developed a beautiful line of coastal windows that offer just that.
Structure and Design
Structurally, the solid wood frame has a Perma-Shield® vinyl cladding designed to resist the corrosive effects of salt water and sea air. The already sturdy hardware is provided with extra fasteners. The frame, sash, and panel reinforcements are created with stability enhancers to defend against high winds and pressure shifts.
Impact-Resistant Glass Options
There are three different impact-resistant glass options to shield against high winds and flying debris.
- The LOW-E4 High-Performance Glass Option can be up to 40% more energy efficient than standard duel-paned windows.
- Storm windows come with the option of installing LOW-E4 High Performance Impact-Resistant Glass that is energy efficient, along with resisting impact, forced entry, sun damage, and noise.
- Monolithic Impact Resistant Glass has all of the durability qualities, but doesn’t have the extra energy efficiency of the LOW E4 lines.
Andersen categorizes their products into three general lines, the 200-series, the 400-series, and the Architectural line. The company offers the benefits of the storm windows in the 400 and Architectural lines. These include stationary windows, casement windows, awning, double-hung varieties.
Storm windows in general tend to be a bit more expensive than standard windows, which is understandable. You are paying for added security and peace of mind that will allow you to kick back and enjoy the storm from a warm, secure location. Request free estimates from prescreened window installers to ensure your windows are installed correctly for maximum effectiveness.
