 Re: Use Renewal By Andersen

Author: Pete (---.dsl.snfc21.pacbell.net)
Date:   

i used to install for Renewal By Andersen in the s.f bay area and i have to agree some of you.In my opinion Renewal should not charge more than a vinyl window because it is not a better window. Fibrex is wood mixed with vinyl, if vinyl is that bad why does their windows get trimed on the interior with "vinyl flat trim? if its so bad why do their patio doors specially the permashield has a vinyl clad??
Why does the renewal's double hung leaks air into the house tru the screw caps on the jamb? And oh yeah Andersen has a service sheet for just this and what is the magic solution? Caulk the screw cap before snaping it into the hole.
If fibrex does not expands why the double gliders move loose after locked. Try them if you own them. If you want the veneer why do the miters bulg up with extra material and it if you want to shave it you see the fibrex. Look at your miters on the windows and you will see all the splints from their saw have just been painted over. If you have Renewal in your house go now! and see them.Are these 1500.00 dlls windows? NOT
If you are going to spend that kind of money go with a new construction Andersen 400 series or 200 Series, or a Milgard Wood Clad is an excellent alternative.
Vinyl Windows are not for every home some require high end windows, but Renewal is an expensive retrofit window.
