The Andersen 100 series is the most economical window series from Andersen. Similar to other collections in this post, the 100 series is also a popular window option for Minnesota homeowners that are seeking an ultra-modern look, improved insulation or overall cost reduction.  Surprisingly, the 100 series, although cheaper in cost, far outperforms the other Andersen window series in both durability and thermal transfer.  The 100 series window frames are constructed completely of Fibrex, an Andersen-manufactured composite material that actually performs better than wood and aluminum across all climates.  It is available in five colors, allowing for flexibility in design.
