Renewing Existing Housing In Richmond

Did you know? The average home uses significantly more energy and is responsible for more carbon emissions than the average automobile.* It’s on us to reduce those emissions and start making our communities safer by making our homes greener. Boosting your home’s energy efficiency has countless benefits, including increased property values, enhanced neighborhood livability, and longer lives for older homes. Choosing to replace your inefficient windows and doors with eco-friendly Renewal by Andersen products is a great place to start.

When Andersen Corporation founded RbA, they knew that they had to break the mold in order to succeed. Andersen set out to make RbA the premier start-to-finish replacement window service by focusing on science. We built our business on the latest energy and material technology, and it shows in our products. Today, RbA provides homeowners across the country with high-quality windows and doors that make your home safe, comfortable, and energy-efficient.

Improving Indoor Air Quality

Renewal by Andersen® and its parent company, Andersen Corporation, are the only window companies to receive the Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) IndoorAdvantage Gold™ certification. This certification is the strictest indoor air emission standard in the United States*.

Most of us spend 90% of our lives indoors, where toxins can enter the air through off-gassing: a process where toxins are released through evaporation from building materials. Some products continue this evaporation for years after their installation, which means you continue to breathe these chemicals night and day. Choosing responsibly manufactured products is good for everyone. With Renewal by Andersen® windows and doors, all you’ll breathe is fresh air.

Fibrex® Material Frames

Renewal by Andersen® windows have achieved the highest SCS certified recycled content of any window replacement company.

Our Fibrex® material frames and sash contain 40% reclaimed wood fiber by weight. Fibrex® material offers the strength and insulating value of wood with the low maintenance features of vinyl. It never requires painting and will not crack, pit, corrode, or rot.**

We reclaim much of our wood fiber from Andersen Corporation’s wood window manufacturing facilities.

High-Performance Low-E4® Glass

High-Performance Low-E4® glass is made from a minimum of 12% reclaimed glass by weight.

Standard on all Renewal by Andersen® windows, High-Performance Low-E4® glass features an innovative coating that, when activated by sunlight, can help reduce water spots. The result: a better view and easier cleaning. What’s more, our glass helps block harmful UV rays entering your home and cuts down on noise pollution by reducing sound penetration.

Long Product
Life Cycles Reduce Waste

Construction waste is a major source of landfill waste in the United States. Every day, Renewal by Andersen replaces windows in homes that are less than 10 years old. Choosing products that are built to last is one of the most important ways to limit landfill waste. Renewal by Andersen products have a long life cycle, backed up by one of the strongest warranties**** in the industry.

Saving a few dollars now could mean another replacement project just a few years down the road. When you invest in Renewal by Andersen® windows and doors, you’ll have confidence your new windows will provide many years***** of comfort and security.

Renewal by Andersen® window replacement can help you save money on your energy bills. Our newest glass option, SmartSun™ glass, is our most energy efficient glass ever. SmartSun™ glass is 70% more efficient in summer and 45% more energy efficient in winter than ordinary dual pane glass.***

Smart Use of Energy with Energy Efficient Windows

In August 2008, the Energy Information Agency (EIA) predicted a dramatic 36% increase in home heating oil and a 23% increase in natural gas prices. Windows can play a large role in your home’s annual heating budget. In fact, the U.S. Department of Energy estimates that windows can account for as much as 40% of your annual heating and cooling costs.
