Andersen Windows: A Key to Green Building

Our parent company, Andersen Corporation, is the largest manufacturer of doors and windows in North America. They have always prioritized safety and the environment in doing business—in fact, Andersen has always aimed for advancements in green building. This commitment is evident with all Andersen brands, including Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois.

As your premier contractor for high-end replacement windows in Peoria, IL, we’ll make sure that your home maximizes its beauty, comfort, and energy efficiency. We make this possible through our:

1. Durable Frame Material — We use our exclusive Fibrex® material for our windows’ sashes and frames. This composite combines the strength and insulating properties of wood with the low maintenance features of vinyl. Fibrex keeps an airtight seal around your windows to prevent significant energy loss. It also doesn’t crack, pit, or corrode. It won’t expand or contract when exposed to thermal changes, as well.

2. Advanced Glass Systems — Combine Fibrex® with our state-of-the-art glass and you can expect a comfortable and more energy-efficient home. Our options include High-Performance Low-E4® glass which reduces interior heat gain from damaging sunlight, keeping your rooms more comfortable while also lowering your energy bills.

Andersen Corporation continues its effort to provide homeowners with greener options for home improvement. The recent Greenbuild 2015 finds Andersen proudly exhibiting on the trade show floor, and our CEO, Jay Lund participating in one of the conference’s formal education sessions. In our “Bringing Net Zero to the 99%” session, we discussed our focus on advancing net zero performance in affordable housing. This highlights our efforts in St. Croix Valley Habitat for Humanity’s Eco Village project.

Andersen knows that the green building industry has hit its stride, with many homeowners choosing more sustainable solutions to enhance the look and feel of their living spaces. Rather than add to the challenges in our global environment, we’re working hard toward implementing more comprehensive green building practices and developments. In our own way, Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois contributes to this aim with our quality and efficient windows in Peoria, IL.
