Andersen’s Premier Coastal Windows and Patio Doors

Not Just for the coast!

The A Series is the Architectural Collection by Andersen® Windows and Doors and is the company’s premier window and patio door line. There are a number of unique features about this series. Regardless of the style of your home, you can achieve virtually any window style with true authenticity from a stately Queen Anne to a bold Modernist design to anything in between. And that’s only part of the story. 

We are following the remodel of a small, mid-50’s, coastal home in Pacifica, California. Click here to watch the video progress on our web site. THE OWNERS, Gianna and Peter Franco, have chosen Andersen’s "A-Series" not only because of style, but especially because these are the best performing and most energy-efficient windows Andersen has ever offered. It’s a beautiful blend of form and function. Perfect for coastal areas and any home that wants superb durability. They chose Dolan's not only because of lower prices on higher quality, but because our window and door experts really know what they are talking about and we are known throughout the Bay Area for our unequalled superb customer service and wide brand selection.

Now let's find out more about the A-Series! The exteriors are made of Fibrex®, a material invented by Andersen that combines the strength and durability of wood with the maintenance ease of vinyl. It offers builders and home owners the comfort of choosing a sustainable, green building material that is more than just environmentally responsible. It’s also extremely durable and without a doubt, beautiful.

The composition is 40 percent wood fiber by weight, mostly reclaimed from Andersen manufacturing processes, with 60 percent thermoplastic polymer by weight, some of which is also reclaimed. Fibrex material blocks thermal transfer nearly 700 times better than aluminum to help reduce heating and cooling bills. It reduces VOC emissions because no wood preservative treatments or painting is required. Fibrex retains its stability and rigidity in all climates, even harsh coastal areas. It resists rot, decay and fungal growth, and won’t flake, blister, peel, pit or corrode. Weathertight seals stay weathertight. Adding to the efficiency is the option of triple pane glass, another reason why these Andersen products are best for coastal areas and any home that wants to take advantage of this most energy-efficient windows available..
