Glass Sealed Securely
New Construction Windows
Our project is an 1800's era farmhouse with 24 very large windows (72 tall) plus another 11 average sized windows. Because of the uniquely tall windows, we went with the Anderson Woodwright Series windows which are 100% custom fitted double hung windows. The overall construction and quality of these windows is outstanding. Plus they very nearly match the charactor & design appearance of the original windows. The only negative is that at over $700 a pop for each of the tall windows, they are a bit pricey.<br /><br />As a real estate investor I have done a number of rehab projects, usually doing most of the work myself and installing these windows was no more difficult than any other. However, because the old windows utilized counter weights to help when raising the sashes, it was important to be certain those old voids and passages around the window opening were properly filled with insulation prior to installing the new windows (No point putting in a great window if the cold/heat just bypasses it and goes through the structure).<br /><br />Once the project was complete, we decided to keep & move into this particular home and after 2 years we remain very happy with the Anderson windows. They are great looking windows, which match the charactor of the home. The windows work smoothly and are tilt in for easy cleaning, which is important because half are installed on the second story, and my girlfriend doesn't like climbing ladders to clean windows.<br /><br />Bottom line... I will use these windows again.<br /><br />p.s. I have been fortunate enough to have not experienced a warranty issue with these windows, although in the past had a product failure with another Anderson product which required repair. Upon calling Anderson, all they wanted was some info off the lable (serial number, model number etc.) and within 24 hours I had the replacement parts in my hands, no shipping fees, no cost, no hassle what-so-ever.<br />I hope they continue to maintain that same level of quality service & warranty.
