 Re: Use Renewal By Andersen

Author: Michael (---.dsl.pltn13.pacbell.net)
Date:   

We are looking to replace some or all of the windows including 2 sliders in our 10 year old house in San Jose, CA. An Anderson Renewal guy came by last night and talked and measured and quoted. He spent most of the time selling the windows and saying that the fibrex frames are the future of windows, stronger, more efficient and cost more because they are better and custom made for the house.

Here is the quote:

For 9 windows, 2 doors (1 french oak slider, 1 french swing), 1 garden window for the kitchen = $33,341

But if we order in Jan we get 20% off and if we are more flexible on scheduling (something called job share?) we get an additional 10% off. This takes the cost down to $23K. He also said if we do a partial order, like buy just 1 window or door, we would lock in the 20% discount for as long as we own the home...

The rep is obviously on commission so I asked him how he was compensated and he told me he is on 100% commission based compensation.

In our previous house in San Jose we replaced all the windows (10 windows) and 1 slider for $11k just 2 years ago. We did Milgard windows and Anderson french oak slider. The company did 'new construction' I think because I saw them take the old windows down to the house frame. The renewal guy said that doing new construction installs is illegal now in CA and has been for years and that the window companies would not honor the warranty for new construction windows installed as replacements.

What gives??
