We’re proud to install the full range of standard and custom-built Renewal by Andersen® patio doors in Raleigh, Greensboro, Fayetteville, and throughout central North Carolina.

Old world craftsmanship meets 21st-century engineering in each one of our Frenchwood® gliding patio doors. Here traditional mortise-and-tenon joinery teams up with energy-efficient SmartSun™ glass that manages heat, visible light, and even blocks 95% of UV rays.

High Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ Glass

Renewal by Andersen® introduces the next generation of low-maintenance, energy efficient glass with High Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™, furthering the Andersen® advantage.

Easier Cleaning and Fewer Water Spots

Andersen® High Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass employs a revolutionary titanium dioxide (TiO²) exterior coating, making it easier to clean. Upon activation, sunlight loosens any dirt adhered to the surface which can then be washed off by natural rain water. The coating also enables the glass to dry more quickly with as much as 99% fewer water spots. *

Increased Thermal Protection

Our Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass features an airtight seal, impervious to the entry of outside air around the panes, for maximum insulation from heat and sound transfer. In addition, the panes are optimally separated with a patented low conductivity spacer and filled with a blend of argon gas to further reduce thermal transfer. These features make High Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass 70% more efficient than ordinary dual-pane glass in the summer and 45% more efficient than its counterpart during the winter. This can cut your energy spending by up to 25% depending on where you live. **

**A study comparing Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass to ordinary dual pane glass revealed a 25% savings on cooling bills and 10% savings on heating in identical homes. Savings may vary.

Keeps UV Rays Outside

High Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass works much like sun block lotion to reflect ultraviolet (UV) rays that can fade fabric coloration and damage furniture. Ordinary dual-pane glass lets as much as 63% of UV rays enter the room. High Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass is comprised of 11 microscopic layered coatings that cut UV transmission down to just 5%, while retaining the clarity or color of the light that enters your house.

Reduces Sound Penetration

Sound penetration is also significantly reduced when compared to single and double pane glass of other makers.

Standard Feature

Every single Renewal by Andersen of Central NC® window selection comes standard with our Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass, and the technology is exclusive to Andersen® windows and doors.

*On exterior surface when activated by sunlight.

Each one of our unique glass options offer a varying degree of benefits within the categories of heating, cooling, ultra violet (UV protection) and visible light transmittance.

Compared to ordinary dual-pane glass still performs 45% more efficiently during the winter and 56% more efficiently in the summer. ** You can decrease your energy bills by up to 25% and block 84% of all harmful ultra violet rays, depending on where you live.
