Anderson 400 Series Options

There are two models available, the Tilt-Wash and the Woodwright. The Tilt-Wash has a Flexicron sash, but the sill is an improvement over the 200 series, where the Woodwright has a Fibrex sash, even though the frame and sill is exactly the same as the Tilt-Wash. The fibrex option is often seen as a better choice over the PPG Flexicron choice.

The Woodwright does have some disadvantages in that it is very limited when it comes to the color options available, though this particular series is often seen as a top choice for contractors when they have to choose an Anderson window.

Dona, the Andersen is too expensive in this case when compared to the other quotes you have. I would go with the Endure window in this case. I think this brings the most value to your project.

Anderson 400 Window vs. Sunrise

HI Bill, I am replacing windows in my home, which has 30+ year old Andersen 400 series casement and picture windows in Metro Detroit area. The best two choices I currently have are between full-frame replacement with Anderson 400 series from one dealer with two-pane SmartSun glass (vinyl clad exterior) and with full-frame replacement by a Sunrise dealer with their Ultra U Plus glass with MaxEdge spacers, and dual weather-stripping system on casements. The Sunrise dealer offers a lifetime parts and labor warranty. Andersen dealer is passing on the Andersen warranty and two years of labor. Quotes are pretty close. Sunrise dealer will leave interior trim unpainted. Andersen dealer would paint them before installing.

Which one you rate as a superior option, given equal price? Any other I should consider? Sunrise dealer also sells Andersen, but his quote for Andersen 400 series would have been significantly hire.

Thanks for your wonderful articles.

Atul - Homeowner - from 2023

[Site Editor's Answer]

Atul, the Andersen 400 series is an interior wood window -- quite beautiful with the real wood. The Sunrise is a full vinyl -- not as nice looking on the inside...however, the Sunrise beats the Andersen on energy efficiency, warranty, maintenance, and typically on cost. I would go with the Sunrise myself in a heart beat and in 20 years you'll know why -- the vinyl just holds up better -- and the warranty confirms this.

If you really like the look of wood, consider an upgrade on the Sunrise vinyl to an interior wood laminate that mimics the look of wood, but without the headaches of wood or the breakdown of the organic material over time...

Andersen 400 Series Bow Windows

Have a 96x64 opening and want to replace the old style divided light windows with an Andersen Bow 400 with casement openings. We could do 4 24 or 2 24 with a 48 picture or a 4x24 flat. We have Andersen 400 casements on the same level on a new addition. Would consider a 100 as this bow window faces Northeast.

Can you quote price of the window and install? I could also find my install as well. Thanks! Replacement Windows Price

David - Homeowner - from 2022

[Site Editor's Answer]

David, quoting out bow windows is SOOO difficult. You will have huge variations in price bids depending on the companies bidding out the work. My suggestion is to generate a bunch of bids to make sure you are getting the very best deal out there.

Andersen 400 Series Windows Price

Hello Bill, we recently redid our roof, guttering, and removed stucco and installed Hardieplank siding. During that renovation we replaced 9 windows. After the project started we decided to move forward with replacing the remaining 27.

The cost of the first set of 9 New Anderson 400 series N.C. windows was $13,500. This contract was signed September 2021.

The contract we just received for the additional 27 Anderson 400 Series windows is costing $76,000. The installation is for 1st and 2nd floor windows. We feel this is high and significantly higher then the first set of 9 windows.

Has the price of Andersen 400 N.C. windows gone up that much in last 12 months?

Total cost for 36 windows = $89,500.00.

Is this reasonable or well above market rates?

I’ve included 2 screen shots of contract. Interested in your thoughts and expertise.

Joe - Homeowner - from 2022

[Site Editor's Answer]

Joe, I'm not surprised by any quotes as of late -- yes that is how crazy prices have gotten to be. I would have thought that the slight downturn in the overall economy would have tamped down those prices as consumer demand waned a bit, but it doesn't seem to be happening. Is there another Andersen dealer in your area that you could use to find the floor price on the project? Basically use the two bids against one another. Or...I could also send you a list of recommended window brands if you wanted to change horses mid race, but I know how tough that can be...

Andersen 400 Windows Cost

We got a quote for a new twin casement Andersen 400 unit size 48x40 (with hardware and screens to replace a rotted window. $927- labor to remove old and install is $750 sound correct for Fairfield County CT?

M - Homeowner - from 2022

[Site Editor's Answer]

M, that is about the price I would expect in terms of the unit price for the twin casement -- in fact, the unit cost sounds quite fair to me. The $750 for labor on one window sounds awfully high to me, unless they are doing work to the existing frame to account for the rotten wood.

Pulling out the window and installing a new one is relatively easy, but repair work to secure the frame and make sure everything is water tight can be a time consuming. I would ask "him" to explain what he's doing and get a time breakdown to make sure his "hourly rate" isn't $250 an hour :)

Andersen 400 Series vs Simonton Impressions 9800

I'm a higher end quality General Contractor in need of advice. I always use Andersen 400 Series in all my client projects including my own home additions, yes plural, we call them "wings". After 35 years I haven't had one call back on Andersen. But now my main house needs the windows replaced. At retirement age, but still working, we plan to stay in our home to the end. After pricing out the Andersen windows and the cost attached to them, I decided it's more practical to go on a budget considering our scenario. My problem is it's harder for me to make a decision on my own home then that of my client's. I tend to go over board for my clients and I double that on my own projects. So going budget is difficult for me.

After researching and advice from my supplier I recently installed, for the first time, Simonton Brickmold 600 series on a rental unit. Not a bad window for the application except for the screen insert/removal. Nothing to grab onto. I read many of your reviews on Simonton and Viwinco. Viwinco is manufactured about an hour away from me. But it seems you favor Simonton. After searching deeper into Simonton products, I only became confused by their many Series and Name Labels. Unfortunately today, suppliers are limited in their knowledge of all the brands they represent. I'm not concerned mixing a vinyl replacement with my Andersen's. None are visible together on the front of the home.

I find your reviews/comments candid and straight forward. So here's my question(s).

If you were me, which of the Simonton (or another manufacturer) replacement window would you use in your home? I want a quality window that will last about 20-25 years with no maintenance problems. Fullest view narrow frame, tilt, optional grill in lower pane only, and in white. I don't think I want the highest quality Simonton because the cost will then get close to an Andersen and therefore I'd get the Andersen. I'm thinking a window that's about 25-30% less than an Andersen. So if I were to guess, it would be between Reflections 5500 or Impressions 9800 or Azure.

What say you?

Jim - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Jim, the Impressions 9800 would be my pick -- it is Simonton's best and I describe it as a 5500 with a face lift. It uses the same main frame as the Simonton 5500 series but with a more attractive sash design and better performing glass system. The 9800 also comes with an upgraded weather-stripping package that I like.

However, if you are looking for a high end vinyl window that is narrow, the Simonton options would not be my pick. The window I like for this is the Sunrise Restorations -- narrow, nice looking, and great numbers.

In fact, there are lots of window series I would prefer to the higher end Simontons that you may want to take a look at -- and all should be 30% less than the Andersen 400 series (although I have no idea what you can buy your windows for, so...)

Here is my list --

Andersen 400 Cost vs. Simonton 6500

Hello Bill, I am on the Potomac river in Virginia and am pricing some Windows for replacement. The 5 picture Windows facing the water are 72”x 82” and the wind an be a factor. I have quotes from Anderson and Simonton that are similar and can be installed (400 series Anderson vs 6500 Simonton) for about $9,000.00. The glass is about the same but what about the frame? Can you recommend a better similarity priced window for water frontage?

Bruce - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Hi Bruce, so the Simonton 6500 series is a vinyl frame inside and out, while the Andersen 400 uses a vinyl exterior and a real wood interior. The Simonton option is decent, but certainly not at that price in my opinion.

The Andersen 400 is an excellent series and is one of my favorite “affordable” wood frame windows. $900 for five large picture windows is not exactly affordable though.

The good news is that you should have lots of options in your area. Here is my list of good and great windows in case you want to continue your search:

Anderson 400 Series Cost

Hi Bill, my wife and I are building and have selected Anderson 400 series double hung windows. We have 9’ ceilings with 8’ doors on the first floor and our builder wants to install the windows at 8’ header. The windows themselves are approx 3’ wide and 5’9” long on the front and 5’1” long on the back. We feel there is too much space between the floor and window sill. Is there a transom size you could recommend that we could place above the double hung windows to resolve this issue? Thanks.

Jeff - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Jeff, I would find your local Andersen rep to get the most up-to-date information available on windows, sizes, options, etc. While I know the products, my knowledge should pale in comparison to the Andersen reps who work day in and day out with the products. To find a local rep/company, do a google search for "Andersen windows in [your city, state]". This should bring up local companies who carry the brand. Call them up and get the info directly from the source.

Anderson 400 Series Windows Price

Dear Bill, We live on the Barnegat and get hammered by wind and salt air. We need really good windows.Three contractors told us we need new construction windows installed. We got a quote for 26 Anderson 400 series double hung and a slider for $32,000 not including installation. Was wondering if there is a Soft-lite equivalent.

Cindy - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Cindy, if you live on or near the coast, you may want to reconsider using a wood clad window. They don't hold up all that well long terms compared to a high end vinyl or fiberglass window. Having said that, the 400 series is probably the wood clad I would go with if you are committed to wood clad and you understand the disadvantages that real wood carries.

The Soft-Lite equivalent is the Elements series or the Imperial LS series. They can both be ordered in an interior wood laminate that does a decent job of recreating the look of wood. In NJ, I would concentrate on Soft-Lite, Ideal, and Okna. All of these brands should have dealers who service your zip code. I have also included my good and great list below. Hopefully your contractor can purchase from one of them.

Anderson 400 Window Replacement

We had our bay window replaced a year and a half ago with an Alside Mezzo. It has leaked numerous times since then so our contractor will be replacing it. He gave us following choices, another Alside Mezzo, a Slocomb 677 or Wincore 7700 for no additional cost or Andersen 400 for the extra $1350 that was quoted us at the time of contract. Can you please advise which is the better product of the first three. Thank you.

Ken - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Ken, so I wouldn’t stick another Alside Mezzo in there. The Slocomb 677 is a good window, but I might give the nod to the Wincore 7700. Not by much, and perhaps because I’m more familiar with that window. Either of these would be my choice over the Mezzo, which always feels a bit flimsy to me.

I tend to be very reticent about recommending wood clad windows like the Andersen 400. A good window to be sure, but wood clad is not going to be as energy efficient or long lasting as the vinyl options. If you like wood though...the 400 series is a nice wood window. I probably wouldn’t spend the extra $1350, unless you like the look of the Andersen and that’s worth the money to you.

Andersen Woodwright 400 Series vs. Okna 600

Hello Tim, I reside in New England and need/want to replace fifteen twenty four year old windows and as you can imagine it is quite an undertaking.

I have received quotes for replacement windows from Andersen Woodwright 400 series, Renewal by Andersen and Okna 600.

I am leaning toward the non-wood option as I prefer a more maintenance free window.

Price is certainly top of mind as is a quality Window. How would you compare Okna 600 to the Renewal by Andersen?

Thank you in advance for your time.

Mike - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

I would absolutely go with the Okna 600 over the Renewal by Andersen: better made, better energy efficiency, and less expensive--by a lot. The Okna 600 is an awesome window. The Renewal is quite good as well, but so overpriced because of the name and the extensive marketing money they spend.

Anderson 400 Series Pricing Question

Hi there, we have a 200 year old home in very good shape that has really old windows and needs to be replaced ASAP. We had a few quotes with different sales guys and they were a bit outrageous to replace all our 28 windows.

Pella 250 series was one of the best quotes we ever gotten so far for 31k installation included For the quality. However, I’m not sure if that is the right route to spend all this money in vinyl windows. If we can go lower with a great window I will take it!

Home Depot has sumenton for 21k

Andersen was 50k for fiber style forgot the name

We do need to replace our wood windows because they are drafty and old but should we really go with Pella? I read some of your reviews and it seems you would not recommend Pella but if is Pella is not a good options - what are other companies we should look for? We plan in spending somewhere on low 20s if possible.

One more questions - since we have wood windows and wants to stay in a good budge what other type of windows should we look at besides vinyl that is good quality and ok budge? Or vinyl should be okay in a 200 year old home?

Thank you so much

Natalia - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Natalia, the Pella 250 vinyl window is a decent mid range window. Pella has a good reputation for wood clad windows, but their vinyl windows are just okay. Paying over $1000 a window is not worth it for a mid range vinyl window. The Simonton 6500 series is equal to the Pella 250 so that's a much better deal.

The Andersen 400 series is probably worth $1000 a window, but obviously they are charging you much more than this. That's a lot of money to pay for a window.

I think you can do better, although I have no idea how much additional work is involved with the project. If this were mine, I would collect two or three more bids to see what else is out there. Here are my good and great lists.

Anderson 400 Conversion Kit Cost

I'm replacing 27 windows outside of Philly. I currently have Anderson Narrowlines, but they need to be replaced. I know that Anderson makes a conversion kit for these. To replace I'm looking at $25K and the conversions would run around $25K. Any opinions on what I should do?

Monty - Homeowner - from 2017

Site Editor's Reply

Monty, I think there are two critical issues here. The first is how good or bad your window frames. If they are in decent shape and haven't sifted too much over time, then the conversion is an option.

The second factor is if the installer has significant experience doing conversions. They can be tricky and if the installer doesn't have the experience, I wouldn't take the chance.
