A Better Option for Window Replacement on Stucco Exteriors

BAYPORT, Minn., April 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Andersen Windows is expanding its fastest growing 100 Series product line to include a new, Flush Fin replacement frame option. The Flush Fin frame option is designed to simplify the installation process for contractors in southwest market areas. The Flush Fin frame option is available in California, Arizona, Nevada and Utah.

The 100 Series Flush Fin product features an integrated fin that allows for easy installation of a unit over an existing aluminum window frame in stucco application without disturbing the stucco exterior.* With the exterior fin covering both the old frame and stucco, the window provides a clean exterior finish in addition to performance.
