Alweather is an Andersen “Circle of Excellence” dealer. Andersen is the largest manufacturer of windows in the U.S.A. Their wood window product offering is deep and we have the knowledgeable team that can respond to any need.
A number of factors contribute to a window or door's performance — from UV protection and solid wood construction to low maintenance longevity. See below to learn more about Andersen's unique combination of essential elements.

Fine craftsmanship, elegant styling and precise detailing make the view of your windows as impressive as the view from them
Andersen window & doors are covered by our exclusive Owner-to-Owner® limited warranty. Most other window warranties end when a home is sold, but our coverage- 20 years on glass, ten on non-glass parts- is completely transferable from each owner to the next. And, because it is not prorated, the coverage offers full benefits, year after year, owner after owner, so it can add real value when you decide to sell your home. Plus, we have one of the largest service networks in the industry, so help is always there if you need it.
All Andersen® windows and doors feature the Perma-Shield® system, which protects the window’s exterior beautifully for decades.* It also eliminates the need to paintand repaint. The material used to make a frame determines a window’s thickness, weight, and durability, and it also has a major impact on its thermal characteristics. The frame is also used in determining a window’s U-Factor. Since the sash and frame represent from 10 to 30 percent of the total area of the window unit, the frame material will definitely influence the window performance.
We believe windows and patio doors should be made of wood, but exterior facings should be protected from the elements. That’s why we manufacture wood-clad windows and patio doors with vinyl exteriors. They offer beauty, luxury and natural appeal while maintaining high standards of weather resistance with an extra surface that lowers their maintenance requirements. The interior wood allows you to retain an attractive paint or stain finish indoors.
At Andersen, we take energy efficient windows very seriously

Take comfort in superior, efficient windows and doors though weather resistance Andersen patio doors and casement windows feature unique locking systems that pull the window or door panel snugly tight. The result is an enhanced weather seal, plus improved security. Our weather-resistant construction seals out drafts, winds and water so well, you can relax in comfort whatever the weather. We carefully select weatherstripping to match each style of window and door to make sure you enjoy superior comfort and reliability.
We expect our products to live well past their warranty period. But kids still throw baseballs and even the most durable materials can wear out eventually. That’s why we can provide replacement parts for our windows and doors, even some that were discontinued 50 years ago.
Window and Door Testing
To make sure that our windows and doors last* we put them through testing in the lab and the field that few other windows endure. Some are exposed to wind speeds up to 249 KPH. Others face sudden temperature changes from -29°C to 82°C.
