BAYPORT, Minn. -- June 20, 2013

Andersen Windows today announced it has launched two iPad apps providing users
virtual versions of its popular Home Style Library pattern books. Available
free in the iTunes App Store, these tablet-friendly apps give homeowners,
architects, builders and remodelers easily accessible resources to understand
and discuss the elements of architectural style at any stage of the building

“For homeowners or remodelers, it’s like having an architectural library at
your fingertips,” said Jay Libby, creative services manager at Andersen
Windows. “We’ve started with two of our most popular pattern books: Craftsman
Bungalow and Georgian Federal. Each style is a separate app, so you can
download just the style you need when you need it. That accessibility in an
iTunes® app means you can have that knowledge with you anywhere you go
throughout the building process.”

The apps were designed to give users a true page-turning experience like the
print and pdf versions of the Pattern Books. More styles will be added to the
app collection in the future, including Prairie, American Farmhouse, French
Eclectic, Modern, Shingle, Queen Anne, Ranch, Spanish Colonial, Tudor styles
and more as Andersen expands the Andersen Home Style Pattern Book offering.

The apps are part of the Andersen Home Style Library. Volumes in the library
are accessible four ways: online as interactive resources; downloadable for
free; spiral-bound hard copies may be ordered through the Andersen website of
eight styles; and now the iPad apps bring the Craftsman Bungalow and Georgian
Federal styles to the convenience of tablet technology.

Each pattern book is dedicated to a single style and contains illustrations
and descriptions of the architectural elements that make up each style
including proportions, groupings, positioning, accent windows, color palettes,
combinations and grille patterns; interior and exterior trim details; entry
door, hardware and art glass options. With the Andersen Home Style Pattern
Books, professionals and homeowners will find a common language to discuss the
design of a home effectively and efficiently.

“Our intent with this collection has always been to make style accessible and
easy to dream,” Libby said. “Providing the information in a variety of formats
continues that commitment.”
