Read the article below to learn about the types of windows Renewal by Andersen of Greater WI offers, with pictures and descriptions! Keep in mind that all replacement windows by Renewal by Anderson® are crafted from Fibrex® – a material that is twice as strong as vinyl.

Double-Hung Windows

The double-hung windows at RBA of Greater Wisconsin open from both the top and the bottom. Because of this, a double-hung window can improve the airflow in your home and reduce the amount of maintenance. With these windows, you can clean the outside and inside panels from the interior of your home. Additionally, these windows perform great in the winter, with improved insulation and exceptional energy efficiency ratings. Double-hung windows offer great ventilation because of their ability to be opened from the top and bottom. And as always, our windows are durable, engineered from Fibrex®.

Casement Windows

Renewal by Andersen of Greater WI customers enjoy casement windows because of the views that they offer! There is no distraction of strips of wood or metal that separate panes of glass in these windows. The side mounted hinges help to maximize airflow within your home and can potentially reduce the cost of monthly energy bills! Because of the side hinges, casement windows are easy to clean, durable as always, and very simple to operate due to the crank handles featured in this style. These windows can also be customized, which make them a perfect option for home renovation.

Bay Windows

Bay windows extend away from your home, making them a unique option. This can help with ventilation and provide a style feature in your home—a comfy seating area, shelving, or storage. Other advantages to bay windows are the increased natural light that they bring into your home due to the slightly curved design. These windows also enhance the value of your home, providing a timeless and aesthetic design to your space.


Bow Windows

Bow windows are very similar to bay windows, but with a small difference, that bow windows are larger and contain additional panes of glass to create more of a gentle arch away from your home. As a result, this window brings lots of additional light into your space and gives an illusion of a larger room. These windows are popular because of their low-maintenance warranty, the beauty and range of customization of the product, and as always, the Fibrex® construction.


Sliding/Gliding Windows

Sliding windows are often called gliding windows because of the effortless way that they glide along the frame. These windows can slide open from the right side, the left side, or both. There is minimal maintenance on these windows because they contain fewer parts than other windows. They are energy efficient, customizable, and made using our Fibrex® material, which is twice as strong as vinyl and known for its durability.

Picture Windows

These windows are the perfect focal point for your space. They cannot be opened or closed, but they allow you to have an uninterrupted view of what is beyond the pane of glass. Renewal by Andersen of Greater WI picture windows are durable and withstand the change in seasons. Picture windows offer easy maintenance, with a seamless design and fewer window parts. They are energy efficient, boasting an ENERGY STAR® certification and easily customizable with a timeless design.

Awning Windows

These windows swing outward, perfect for ventilation, privacy (especially in a bathroom) and rain protection! Awning windows are also popular for basements because of the design that makes it difficult for potential break-ins. As always, these Renewal by Andersen of Greater WI windows are made using the Fibrex® material, which is extremely durable.
