These are the ugliest windows I have ever seen. Look and feel like gray metal. I feel like I'm living in a trailer.

Very nice...just like everyone at Anderson...until you have a problem. Installers should have shown me the windows before removing my existing windows. Once I had a hole in my house, I was stuck.

Used galvanized nails, which are rusting now, for the flashing around the new windows. Excellent windows matching the interior trim. No drafts.

Very flexible to work with our schedule. I only wish they used non-rusting nails to nail in the flashing around the window.

We truly LOVE these windows. We had 17 windows replaced in March 2006. We lived through two summers and one winter with them and are not regretting anything. The mortise and tenon look is right on! So much better than any welded vinyl look you can buy.
