Replacement windows by Andersen

Posted by windowscostmoney (My Page) on

I just received a quote of $12.5k by Renewal by Andersen to replace 11 awning windows (39" by 26"). These are fiberglass replacements but I have no idea if this is a reasonable price. I intensely dislike the "if you buy now I will cut the proce" routine. Gives me a feeing like you are being rushed because there is a better deal out there and they don't want you to know about it. I am doing some price checking tomorrow but my question is does this price sound reasonable? Thxs

They are not fiberglass. They are Fibrex. Big difference. The Fibrex material is a wood and resin matrix that carries a ten (10) year warranty with it.

Well regarded fiberglass manufacturers (Marvin) offer a lifetime warranty on their product.

I would suggest that you keep looking around if you did not like their push or tactics.

At $1,135 an opening for a small awning window, you can put whatever you want in that application.

RE: Replacement windows by Andersen

Could never understand why anyone would get windows from Renewal by Andersen. Even their commercials are terribly annoying.

Go to an Andersen distributor (not Home Depot) and ask them to recommend some installation contractors. They'll likely carry other brands (eg. Marvin) and can help you compare features/quality.

I had Andersen Renewal give me a quote a few years ago. They were double the price of the company I went with. get a few more estimates from replacement window companies. I didn't like them running down all their competitors.
