Anderson 200 vs. Milgard or Jeld Wen Vinyl

Posted by aimsters (My Page) on

I am considering Jeld Wen and/or Milgard vinyl windows and Andersen vinyl clad exterior/wood interior windows (pre finished white) and will be casing all my windows. The price difference is $2400 more for Andersen, but I am not sure if it is worth it. Any thoughts would be appreciated...thanks!

I haven't used vinyl windows.

Are the Andersen 200 windows the TiltWash or the Narrowline? Both have a Flexacron painted sash that Andersen lets you think is a vinyl cladding.

Both only offer between-the-glass muntins and have low Design Pressure ratings. The 200 TiltWash doesn't have a drip at the sill and needs a sub-sill or some pretty fancy flashing.

Is there much quality difference between a vinyl Milgard window and a Jeld Wen vinyl window?

RE: Anderson 200 vs. Milgard or Jeld Wen Vinyl

you are comparing a vinyl window compared to a wood window with a vinyl cladding. their is a very big difference, hence the pricing difference. If budget is not a concern go with the Andersen. Also never heard of Milgard vinyl windows so i can't really tell you much about them, but good luck if you have a warranty issue with Jeld-wen, it will be a nightmare for you.

Do not go with the 200 series windows they are nothing but trouble. Just remember I warned you!!!
