• Andersen® Head Flashing and Installation Flanges DO NOT take the place of standard window and door flashing. Unit
must be properly flashed and sealed with silicone for protection against water and air infiltration. Use non-reflective
flashings. Highly reflective flashing tapes can raise the surface temperature of the vinyl to the point where vinyl
deformation and product damage may occur.
• Do not apply any type of film to glass. Thermal stress conditions resulting in glass damage could occur.
• Use of movable insulating materials such as window coverings, shutters, and other shading devices may damage
glass and/or vinyl. In addition, excessive condensation may result causing deterioration of windows and doors.

Masonry/Concrete Installations Only


• Acid solutions used to wash masonry/concrete will damage glass, fasteners, hardware, and metal flashing.
Follow the acid solution manufacturer's instructions carefully. Protect and/or cover Andersen® products
during cleaning process to prevent acid contact. If acid does come in contact with unit, immediately wash all
surfaces with clean water.
• DO NOT install unit directly on masonry/concrete surface. Place a full length barrier (i.e. treated wood, tar paper,
ice/water membrane) between unit sill and masonry/concrete surface. Failure to use barrier and sealing it to
masonry/concrete surface and unit sill may result in product and/or property damage. Entire barrier must be
sealed to masonry/concrete surface to help prevent water infiltration. Barrier thickness must not exceed 1/4”.

• Frames are manufactured for left or right hand operation (L or R) or stationary sidelights. Door operation is as
viewed from the outside.
• Provide a large work area when assembling patio door frame. Cover work area with cardboard to protect
frame parts.
• Following frame assembly, attach screw pack envelope, with remaining screws, to frame for use when
installing unit frame and door panels on the job site.
