Anderson Pricing vs Pella

Hi Dane, we have Pella coming out tomorrow and Anderson on Thursday to get quotes. We have 11 old vinyl windows, all sliders all of them are about 2 1/2 ft in with except for 4 larger windows about 4ft wide. Single level 1176 sqft home not big. Any suggestions on what I should ask or what I should look out for to see if they are trying to get over? I swear if they quote me 20k for these little jobs I will tell them to get out of my house immediately hahaa. Also how are Milgard Windows?

Daniel - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Daniel, get the bids first and do a quick online review of the actual company doing the install. Anderson is going to be the best quality of the three manufacturers you mentioned. Milgard is decent. I would say their Tuscany and Trincic series are on par with the Pella 350, but will probably be priced out a lot lower.

Anderson Windows Price Discount

Hi, I recently got a quote from Home Depot to replace my wood Anderson windows that have rotted at the bottoms. I want to replace with the same windows for aesthetics and energy efficiency. I am inquiring to see is there may be some kind of a discount from Anderson on the new windows. Thank you.

Holly - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Holly, there won't be a discount from Andersen on new windows you buy from Home Depot. (None I've ever heard of at least.) In fact, new construction and replacement windows have been quite expensive as of late. My best advise is to try to get a couple of quotes from local Andersen dealers as opposed to Home Depot. You might be surprised by the price differences between these different sources.

My other piece of advice is to consider a high end vinyl window over wood clad windows. The wood interior laminate technology has come a long ways and it's difficult to see the difference between real wood and the laminate. The energy efficiency of vinyl over wood is pretty incredible, plus they require no maintenance and they are much less expensive. Again, this is a high end vinyl window.

Here is my list of good and great windows:

Andersen Windows Cost

Hi Bill, I have been having a hard time finding decent replacement windows at a decent price locally. I live in Hamilton, Montana and it seems that I am limited to Anderson, Marvin, Milgard, Pella, Coeur d'Alene, and maybe one or two others. I have been really surprised at the prices I have been quoted.

One Anderson distributor in Missoula gave me a quote of $680 for a 6'x4.5' model 100 window. He said that it would cost around $1150 for the window and complete install. A 6' slider was $1,500.

A Coeur d'Alene distributor gave me a quote for a black on black slider for over $1,500. (Install not included.)

I'm wide open to the material for our windows. I love the look of wood, but we are trying to stay on budget. I'd be okay with vinyl if I could get it in a dark color inside and out. I've contacted many of your "Top Rated Window" companies and they don't serve our area. Do you have any suggestions for us? We just want a good window for our climate that we can afford.

Thanks for your help.

Michael - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Michael, it can be tricky business finding a good window brand and installation in certain locations of the country so I apologize for the hassle. The dark custom frame colors are expensive, adding up to 30% on to the price, so do factor that into your pricing equation. Some companies have been adding a black or dark to their normal color offerings because of the demand, but definitely not always the case.

The Milgard Trinsic is offered in a black and it’s a pretty solid window. I’d be curious to find out pricing on this window.

What about going to you local HD? They often sell an Andersen 100 window, which I believe is available in black or a dark. Home Depot is immune from price gouging for the most part, at least it is for their products. However, instead of using their install crews (which are not always cheap and can be spotty in terms of quality), you could use something like yelp to find a highly rated window installer in your local area? This route is a bit of a pain, but I have seen it work in certain cases to good affect.

Anderson 100 Price List

Forgot to ask, what about Milgard, Pella and Renewal by Andersen?

Debra - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Debra, Milgard is decent to solid.

Pella is overpriced IMO. There 350 vinyl series in the casement is pretty solid.

Renewal is a good window, but WAY over priced. The frame is a fibrex, which is what they use on the Andersen 100 series. This is often sold through Home Depot for say $350 a window. So an Andersen 100 with an upgraded glass and maybe an upgraded rail reinforcement is a pretty darn good window at a fraction of the cost that Renewal sells their windows for. Find a good installer (not HD) and you have a pretty good option here as well.

Anderson 400 Series Window Bid

Hi Tim, we have been pricing out two window types and the prices we are getting are crazy. We have gotten many quotes for the Anderson 400 series and only one quote from a dealer for Sunrise Restoration. We moved into our home in March. The home has the Sunrise Restoration windows in the home and they were installed in 2009.

We need to replace 4 windows as the previous owner had them painted from white to dark brown. It has caused leaking and bowing as these are facing west. We are in southeast Michigan. We have reached out to sunrise to see if there are more than one dealer in our area, but they have not contacted me back which makes me a bit nervous to use this company.

The quotes for the Anderson’s have been fairly close and I have nothing to compare for the Sunrise. Looking at what some have stated they paid for windows on your site, our quotes seem crazy high. Some input would be great and which window would you recommend?Thank you, Chris

2 Bedroom windows. One has a half moon at the top so that window is considered two windows making it 3 bedroom windows and a den window. We are looking at casements and a full frame replacement.

Sunrise Restorations- 11,500

Anderson 400 series- 13,200

Tim and Chris - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Hi Tim and Chris, so those quotes are very high. I'm assuming there is some work to be done to shore up those leaky windows. I would continue to get bids to see what others window companies say about the project. This is really the only way to drill down to the fair market price of the work involved. Here are my two lists of good and great windows. So far, you have two windows that I would put in the great list (although I don't list any wood clad windows, just vinyl).

Recommendations For Coastal Maine

I am looking to replace some andersen patio doors and windows that have failed in about 20 years. The doors and windows are south and west facing and have direct rain and sun exposure. The windows and doors are located approximately 300 ft from the ocean in mid coast maine.

The doors have and frames have rotted and the windows have fogge. The doors have clear evidence of water intrusion. The doors are Andersen and the windows are Bonneville.

What type of windows and doors would you recommend? Vinyl vs Fiberex vs wood vs wood clad vinyl or fiberex, vs aluminum? Does one type or series of doors have a better water disposal system?

John - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

John, since you are so close to the coast, I would recommend a high quality vinyl window. These will hold up well against the elements and provide lots of energy efficiency. In terms of water disposal, the thing you want to avoid is a window with a capture sill that drains water through the frame itself. Instead, you want a vinyl window with a true sloped sill. Top tier vinyl windows use this system, while many lower end windows use the cheaper capture sill.

Anderson Prefinished Basement Window

These basement windows were apparently manufactured by Anderson from 1934 to 2004 and then discontinued. I have 2 basement windows that need to be replaced and cannot find a suitable replacement. The outside frame dimensions were 32 1/4" x 23 1/4”. I remove the window from the frame when loading firewood in from the outside and need to easily remove the window from the frame several times a week. The hinges on the old windows easily accommodated removal. I can only find “hopper” windows that do not accommodate removal of the window from the window frame.

Did Anderson ever make a similar replacement basement window to the discontinued model.

Robert - Homeowner - from 20120

Site Editor's Reply

Robert, great question. I actually don't know the answer to this question. I would refer you to this page of Andersen Window dealers in your state. If this assemblage of Andersen reps doesn't know, then you're in real trouble :) Here is the link. https://www.andersenwindows.com/dealers/vt/

Anderson 1000 Series Cost Options

We don’t live near a city. I think Home Depot sells Simonton. Closest Home Depot is 70 miles away. However I just found out that the company my husband works for sells Andersen, and perhaps some other brands. He is going to find out. It’s a farmer’s co-op lumberyard. I have tried to find Okna, Sunrise, and Soft-Lite in this area and so far have had no luck. A lot of the company websites don’t give a list of dealers. They want me to call to find out. I’m not keen on that, as I don’t want to be inundated with sales calls. Still, we have to have windows before winter. The co-op may give us an employee’s discount so there’s that, even tho’ our only choice there might be Andersen.

Edie - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

If the local Andersen dealer sells the composite 100 series, this is a pretty solid non-wood window that is often well priced. Given quality installation, the Andersen 100 series is a product I would recommend.

Anderson 100 Cost Estimates

I have to replace 5 windows in my Atlanta, Georgia home. They are all in bedrooms, and four are double hungs while one has an arched brow I guess you call it. I have three quotes from companies and was wondering which if the three you thought sounded like the best deal.

There are 3 brands/series I've been researching; Andersen 100 series, Simonton 6500 series, and VinylMax Newton series. Below is cost info from the bids I've received.

Simonton 6500 Option: $3.8K

Andersen 100 Option: $5.1K

VinylMax Newton Option: $3.5K

Kendra - Homeowner - from 2019

Site Editor's Reply

Kendra, the Andersen 100 quote is the one I would actually toss out. I would say the Vinylmax Newton at $3.5K is the best window at the best price. The Simonton 6500 is a decent option, but the Vinylmax looks like the sweeter deal to me.

Anderson 100 Windows or Jen Weld V2500

We live out in the desert in Phoenix. We have just over 40 windows that need to be replaced and our contractor said that he has access to the Jen Weld Builders V2500 or the Andersen 100 model.

Would either of these windows be a good fit for our situation? Thanks so much for your wonderful website and your help with my issue.

Tandy - Homeowner - from 2018

Site Editor's Reply

Tandy, of the two choices you have, the Anderson 100 is the far superior window. The Jen Weld Builders V2500 series is not a very high quality window in my estimation. I'd be curious to find out how much more expensive the Andersen 100 is than the Jen Weld V2500.

Bill - Site Editor - from 2018

Andersen 400 Bid vs. Okna 500

Bill, a couple of local companies recently gave us bids on replacing 17 Okna 500 Deluxe windows. There's a lot to the project, including removing the existing siding around the windows, install the new construction windows, and then replace the siding. The price quote was $13,000.

The second bid was from another company for the Anderson 400 window and that bid was $17,5000. The last one was from a Sunrise window rep and their price was $13,800.

Jobe - Homeowner - from 2018

Site Editor's Reply

Jobe, all very good bids. I think you have to decide what type of window you want. If you do want a wood clad window, then the Andersen 400 is a great option and the price sounds fair. If you want a vinyl window, then I'd go with the less expensive Okna. The Okna and Sunrise are more or less on par with one another.

Bill - Site Editor - from 2018

Andersen 400 Window Costs

We are replacing all of our windows and have some widely varying bids.

Andersen 400 Woodrite Window: $33,000

BFRich Cabernet Window: $13,000

Okna Enviro Star Window: $12,000

Andersen by Renewal Window: $36,000

Joe - Homeowner - from 2016

Site Editor's Reply

Joe, the best bid there is the Okna bid. I like the Andersen 400 Woodrite Window, but the Envirostar is going to get you better performance, better warranty, and easier maintenance. Plus save you $20,000. Ask to see their interior woodgrains, which looks like wood but without the cost and maintenance headaches.

Andersen 400 Window Costs

I need to get 13 replacement windows for my house built in the 90s. I have three bids and would love to hear what I should do about these different offers.

Anderson 400 Series: $13400

Okna 500 Series: $8450

Alside Mezzo Series: $6700

Josh - Homeowner - from 2018

Site Editor's Reply

Josh, The Anderson 400 series is a very good wood window, but it's obviously much more expensive than the other two. The Okna 500 is probably your best bet, unless you need to have wood windows in your home. If this is the case I would see if the Anderson dealer is willing to come down on his price at all.

Andersen Windows Cost Calculator

How exactly do you come up with the pricing on your calculator?

Cinder - Homeowner - from 2018

Site Editor's Reply

Cinder, thanks for the question. We start out with the type of Anderson window you've selected. So for instance, a casement window gets a baseline cost of $140, while a double hung gets a baseline of $150, and a single hung window gets a baseline of $125. Then we look at the series you've chosen. So the 200 series gets a baseline of $300 and a 400 series gets a baseline of $500. So a 200 double hung gets a price of $450. If you want some upgrades, there is a small multiplier and if you want lots of upgrades there is a larger multiplier.

We then add in the cost of installation; pocket replacement adds $85 per window, while full frame replacement adds a cost of $285 per window. Then we simple multiply this cost by the number of windows you have selected. It's not perfect by any means, but we've tested the Anderson window price calculator for nearly 200 examples and have found that it generally brings up accurate results (within a range of course.)

Anderson Window Cost Estimates

How do Andersen window costs compare to Pella? How does the quality compare?

Brady - Homeowner - from 2018

Site Editor's Reply

Brady, I would say that Pella's premium wood windows and Andersen's premium wood windows are roughly equal in terms of quality and cost. You are probably looking at $1000 a window for a mid range wood window with installation.

I like Andersen's mid range and lower range wood windows better than Pella's. Neither one makes a very good vinyl window, although Pella has actually stepped up a bit with the 250 and 350 series.

The Andersen 100 composite window is one place where Anderson shines over Pella, who doesn't offer a composite frame at all.

Anderson Picture Window Prices

We have 2 picture windows which are 70 X 46 and 2 which are 70 by 23 which need to be replaced due to fading. Your cost estimator did not include picture windows. We have already been through a long sales presentation which was well described on your website. I would like to avoid a repeat. We have an upcoming presentation with RBA. I would appreciate information about reasonable cost for replacing these windows.

I would like high quality, efficient replacements that don’t dramatically change the configuration of our existing windows. The last replacements would require an external flange that would change the exterior of the house significantly. I would appreciate your advise. Our current Windows were by Anderson as well and were installed when the house was built.

Tim - Homeowner - from 2018

Site Editor's Reply

Tim, RBA will probably be a worse presentation than your first one. They typically start out with a really high price for the project and then they get down to about half of what they started with. However, RBA is IMO quite overpriced for what you are getting.

Retrofit windows won't have the nailing flange and they are easier to install. However, you will often lose a small portion of glass area with the retrofit method. Andersen makes a good window and I'd say go with the 400 series if you want to stick with aluminum clad exterior and wood interior. Go with the 100 series if you want a composite like RBA, but don't want to pay the Renewal price tag.

There are also some very good vinyl window options, many of the top tier have interior laminate options. These brands would include Okna, Soft-Lite, Sunrise, and Polaris.

Large picture windows are hard to price out with a calculator, you are better off getting bids to find out the fair market price. Most quality organizations don't do the hard sell, they come out, measure your windows and give you the bid.
