TOM: Hi. I’m Tom Kraeutler from the Money Pit. And if you have old, drafty windows that are hard to open or need frequent scraping and painting, now is a great time to think about replacing them with beautiful, energy efficient windows from Andersen.
Now, this 400 Series Tilt-Wash Double-Hung Window is custom sized to fit inside an existing window frame, so there’s minimal disruption to your home, which saves you time and money. All you do is remove the top and the bottom sash, keep the existing frame and interior and exterior trim in place, and insert the new window.
Now, the Andersen 400 Series window features energy efficient high performance low-E4 glass, and a tilt to clean function for easy care.
It’s a great DIY project. Let me show you how it works. You simply tilt in the window. You clean it. Pop it back in, and you’re good to go.
So it’s a great DIY project. It requires only basic skills and no special tools, and it, also, installs from inside your home, so even the windows on the second story are easier to replace.
The 400 Series Tilt-Wash Double-Hung Window Insert is traditionally styled with a rich wood interior, and has a low maintenance exterior that eliminates the need for paint, and it can be fitted with a range of available hardware styles to match any decor.
The accompanying installation kit includes step-by-step instructions and screws. It’s got the shims, and even a flexible foam backer rod to help seal the perimeter gaps, and provide a stable surface for sealant and a weather tight seal.
