Matching Andersen "white"

elizawhyzaNovember 25, 2012

Our windows are Andersen pre-finished white. It looks a bit grey to us, but want to know if anyone here has matched that color for using on the rest of the trim. Were you pleased with the result? If anyone has a formula that matches, it would be great if you can share.

Thanks!

You are not the only people seeing gray in your white Anderson windows.

If you don't get the formula here, your options are to remove a part of the window and take to a paint store or start bringing grayish white chips home to match. Is this for inside or outside trim? From my limited experience, close-enough-good-enough is the case with matching whites outside.

Thanks, graywings! It's for the interior windows.

You can also bring a window or piece of the clad material into the paint store to have them match it (they may even have a formula there already too) or if Anderson has some brochures there may be a swatch there too you can have matched.
