Low End Anderson Windows Prices

By low end Anderson windows, we are referring specifically to American Craftsman and Silverline. Anderson purchased both of these companies some time ago in order to "break into" the vinyl window market, which makes up a considerable portion of the overall replacement and new construction window market.

The common wisdom is that Anderson bought the companies, but didn't want them competing with their own brand, so they bought low end vinyl windows. Neither American Craftsman nor Silverline is considered a very good vinyl window. They are inexpensive, but unfortunately most consumers shouldn't be looking for a poorly made vinyl window.

Both American Craftsman and Silverline are sold through the big box stores and offer very little in terms of long term value for most consumers. A standard sized double hung from either American Craftsman or Silverline should run $200 to $325 fully installed.

Price Range: $200 to $325 Installed


Entry Anderson Windows Prices

This is an installed price and would be on their 100 composite fibrex frame. This product is not vinyl, although it is made to compete with the vinyl offerings from other manufacturers. The product looks nice, better than a vinyl, but will have lower performance numbers than a comparable vinyl.

Price Range: $325 to $450 Installed


Standard Anderson Windows Prices

This is an installed price and will encompass the 200 and 400 Series, wood and wood clad products that get high marks for their overall look. The 200 is Anderson's entry level wood windows, often termed their builder grade window. The 400 Series is their middle of the road wood window that gets good marks from many contractors and installers.

Price Range: $500 to $725 Installed


High End Anderson Windows Prices

This is an installed price and will encompass their Eagle and Architectural Series. The Architectural series are custom wood windows that can be used as focal point windows due to their high quality materials and hardware. We should have put the price higher, the Anderson list their Architecutural double hung at over $2000 just for the window itself.

Price Range: $725 to $1200 Installed

Anderson Windows Bid vs. Sunrise And Simonton

I have three bids on my replacement windows and I was surprised that the Andersen 400 window came in $2500 lower (for full project) than the sunrise or Simonton. They also included the nicest looking window grids and it covered several little installation tweaks that were going to cost a bit more from the others. They have a local dealer here in Mississippi and I like having someone local.

Steve, it sounds like you have a great deal in front of you. The Anderson 400 window is a very good one and I would say better than either the Sunrise or the Simonton 5500. I agree with you on using local dealers as it gives you another option in case something does wrong in the future. Good luck to you!

Anderson 100 Series vs. Renewal by Anderson

An Anderson salesman told me the Renewal by Anderson and Anderson 100 window use the exact same glass thickness. I'm trying to figure if this is true?

Doug - Homeowner - from 2017

Site Editor's Reply

Doug, both of these windows come standard with a double strength glass, either a 1/2 inch or 3/4 inch glass thickness, I can't remember which one. This is pretty typical of well made windows and the difference between them will be quite small. As long as you aren't buying a window with a single strength glass, you will be fine.

You do bring up a good point though, the 100 Series uses a frame that is the same fiber material as the RBA, similar glass and some similar components. The 100 series lacks some of the nicer bells and whistles of the RBA, but it is at the core very similar. The difference however is that you can get the 100 series at a fraction of the cost of the RBA. There are lots of reasons for this that I won't go into right now, but the 100 series offers lots of value when compared to the Renewal composite window in my opinion.

Anderson Window Quality

Where would you put Anderson windows in terms of quality as it relates to the whole window industry?

Nick - Homeowner - from July, 2017

Site Editor's Reply

Nick, thanks for the question. In terms of quality I would put Anderson very near the top. This is for their 200, 400, 100 series, as well as their Architectural Windows. I am not referring to their Silverline or American craftsman line. These two are inferior window brands that won't offer much long-term value.

Anderson has a good reputation for making a quality window and vinyl door with their 200 and 400 series. I think for any homeowner that is interested in a wood clad window or door, they should definitely take a look at the 400 series, which in my opinion is the best Anderson product out there.

Anderson Silverline Differences

I'm trying to understand what the difference between Anderson and Silver line is? The Silver line has Anderson on it but from what I can tell it's a lower quality window, is this correct? They are found in Home Depot and they seem very affordable are they any good?

James, thanks for the question, it is a sometimes confusing one for consumers. Anderson windows purchased Silverline windows some time ago.The reason they did so was to find a low-cost vinyl window it wouldn't compete with their wood clad windows and would give them entrance into the vinyl window market.

Unfortunately, Silverline windows are not high-quality windows. Anderson windows particularly the 400 series and the architectural series are very good windows but they're also very expensive. The Silverline vinyl window is considered a low end of vinyl window that I would not recommend for long-term value for most homeowners.

If you are going to go with an Anderson window that is available in Home Depot or one of the other big box stores, I would suggest buying the Anderson 100 series, which is a composite or fibers frame. This is going to be a much better window than anything that Silverline manufactures.

If you do decide to go with the Silverline window, I would suggest go with the 9500 series, which is their top-of-the-line vinyl window

Anderson 100 Windows or Simonton or Vytex

I can't decide what to go with, but here are my three bids for 36 windows. There is lots of custom work that needs to be done, that's why the per window cost is so expensive. It looks like the bids are all in the same basic ballpark, I'm trying to figure out which quote is going to be the best one for my house. I want these windows to last a long time.

Contractor 1: Andersen 100 casements - $49,000
Contractor 2: Simonton 5500 casements - $43,000
Contractor 3: Vytex Fortis casements - $37,00

Fern - Homeowner - from June, 2016

Fern, you have three good options here so that's the good news.

Bid 1, Andersen 100 casements. The 100 series is a good window and looks good and performs decent, but not great. I'm not sure it's worth $12K more than the Vytex.

Bid 2, Simonton 5500 casements. I like the 5500 series and think it's probably pretty close to the 100 series at a lower cost. I think it doesn't quite measure up to the 100 series in terms of look, but it's equal in everything else.

Bid 3, Vytex 3300 casements. Based on the price, I think I'd go with this one. The Fortis offers some nice performance - with a dual pane glass and argon fills you should be able to expect a U factor of .26, air infiltration of .05, SHGC of .29, and a design pressure rating of 50. These numbers would probably beat out the 5500 and the 100 series.

I think you should save yourself some money and go with the Vytex Fortis. Make sure the installation quality is top notch because they will make a huge difference in longevity and life span of window.
