Andersen® vs. Renewal by Andersen®: What’s the Difference?

The Andersen® name has been synonymous with quality replacement windows for decades. However, there may be a bit of confusion between the Andersen Corporation and Renewal by Andersen®. While you can count on the two for dependable window replacement work, they are actually two different entities.

The Andersen® Corporation: A Quick Look

The Andersen Corporation was founded in 1903 in Wisconsin by Hans Andersen, a Danish immigrant. Today, it is a privately held company with over 8,000 employees across manufacturing locations in North America and Europe. It is the parent company for the brands Andersen Windows, Renewal by Andersen, Weiland, Heritage, MQ and EMCO®.

Andersen is also proud to be named as an ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year for 2020 in recognition of the company’s sustainability efforts, boasting a range of certified replacement windows that truly represent for what ENERGY STAR stands.

What Is Renewal by Andersen®?

Renewal by Andersen was established to be the Andersen Corporation’s window replacement subsidiary. This has allowed the brand to draw on more than 100 years of craftsmanship, innovation and quality that Andersen has fostered, guaranteeing top-notch window replacement products. For its proprietary framing material Fibrex®, Renewal by Andersen also counts on wood fibers reclaimed from Andersen’s wood window production facilities.

Since its first store opened in 1995 in Minnesota, Renewal by Andersen has grown to become one of the biggest window replacement companies in the U.S., installing nearly 3 million windows since then.
