Gerkin Windows

My husband and I are getting ready to start building our new home. We live in North Central Kansas better known as the middle of no where. We are struggling to find a quality window within our budget that has a dealer in our area. We have lots of Pella and Anderson options but everything that I have read in this forum says to stay away. Our local lumber yard carries Gerkin. Does anyone have any feedback on them?

Thanks so much!

You can do allot better and allot worse than Andersen. If you look into going with Andersen I personally would suggest the 400 series as I still feel this is the bread and butter line of what they offer. It is a solid window and would serve you well. That being said I would still investigate other options in better performing windows (ie: Integrity, and premium vinyl etc), but I cannot offer an opinion on Gerkin although I would assume being as it is a vinyl line available thru a lumberyard it would not be considered anything resembling a premium vinyl.

RE: Gerkin Windows


What are you needing the interior of the window to look like? The Marvin Integrity is usually a great new construction option.

RE: Gerkin Windows

Thank you for the feedback. I found a local place that carries Softlite and one that carries Marvin so they are working on a bid for us too!
