Renewal By Andersen Prices And Review Information

Renewal By Andersen prices are not cheap as you will see below. They are a franchised brand owned by Andersen windows. This confuses a lot of consumers and with good reason. As a franchise of Andersen, each Renewal location is individually owned and operated, but the windows themselves are made by Andersen under the Renewal label.

Renewal By Andersen windows use a composite frame, made from Fibrex, which is a mix of vinyl and wood (sawdust) that is combined or bonded together to create a strong and durable frame. All of the installation is handled by the individual franchise, either through an owner installer or via a trained team(s) of installers.

On the plus side, Renewal By Andersen (often referred to simply as RBA) makes quite a nice looking window that is completely customizable and can be ordered in lots of grid, glass, hardware and components options and upgrades. On the downside, the windows tend to be very expensive, rivalling the cost of some of the more expensive wood clad windows on the market. The other downside is the rather mediocre performance numbers of the RBA line (see the ratings section below for additional details.)

Consumers don't always have great things to say about the Renewal By Andersen sales approach. Some complain that they use an aggressive selling style that starts off with a very high per window price that can be reduced 20% to 25% if the customer signs the purchase order that day. Often, even with the 25% that day deal, the windows can be $1500 to $2500 fully installed, taxes etc. This is quite a hefty price tag for most homeowners.

I'd actually recommend that consumers get a bid from Renewal (assuming that the company has a franchise that services your area). I think it's a great way to compare and contrast the frame material, aesthetics, options, pricing, and contract terms. At the end of the day, the more bids and information you have, the more informed decision you're apt to make. My two cents.

Renewal By Andersen Prices

Renewal By Andersen prices are at the high end of the composite window price range. Consumers can expect RBA pricing to run $1450 to $2300 fully installed. This price is usually only after the initial price quote has been reduced down with "discounts" etc. During Covid and beyond, Renewal prices have been even higher than these price quotes -- sometimes in that $3000 per window price. Pretty steep... Comparable windows include Okna Starmark windows and the Great Lakes Ecosmart window.

Renewal By Andersen Ratings

RBA windows are made from a combination of wood and vinyl that is very similar to Andersen's Fibrex material. The windows are quite good looking and completely customizable and comes standard with a fusion welded frame.

There are a host of features, hardware and upgrade options that are available and will of course add to the bottom line. For instance, the SmartSun glass upgrade adds to the bottom line but will drop the U-factor from .30 to .24 and the SHGC from .34 to .28.

Renewal By Andersen Warranty

Renewal By Andersen offers a fully transferable warranty that covers the insulating glass unit, sash, and any door panels for a period of 20 years from the original date of purchase. There is a 10 year provision on all components and materials made of the fibrex material. All non glass and no fibrex materials are also warranted for a period of 10 years from the original date of purchase.

The company warranty includes a 2 year provision on installation, which is actually a great feature to have. There are limitations and exclusions that apply to this warranty so make sure to get a copy of the warranty and read the document in its entirety prior to your purchase.

Renewal vs Window Nation

John, we've narrowed it down to two companies - Window Nation and Renewal. The Renewal is quite a bit more expensive at $2500 per window, while the WN is more like $1500 -- these are installed prices.

Website Editor's Answer

Fred, Renewal and WN are quite a bit different in what they sell - Renewal sells just one composite window, while. WN sells a slew of vinyl options. I like Window Nation's more premium options over Renewal myself. But si it really depends on which window you are considering. I just think Renewal is too expensive for what you are getting.

Renewal By Andersen Prices

Jon, I was hoping you could tell me whether I’m crazy or not. My husband loves the Renewal By Anderson window. He thinks it looks better than all of the other final windows we’ve been shown, which is a few. Here is my issue though; the renewal bid is four times as expensive as the quote we got from a well respected company cheer in Pennsylvania. The Renewal bid was like $3200 per window while the Okna 400 was $800 per window and included triple pane glass. if I were made of money, I would go with the renewal. But we certainly aren’t ha ha. What is your opinion on this?

Phyllis - Homeowner - November, 2023

Website Editor's Answer

Phyllis, thanks for the question, it’s an important one. Since Covid, Renewal price quotes have been through the roof. They were bad before and now they are even higher. I think part of this is due to the fact that renewal is doing tons of business. Therefore they can throw out $3200 per window bids and not worry when some consumers bulk at the price tag. The interesting thing is this: Okna 400 windows is probably almost as good performance wise as the renewal by Anderson so if the installer has a good reputation, then I think you’d be crazy not to go with this bid over the renewal bid. However, I would be remiss if I didn’t say the following: the Okna 400 is the company's entry level series.

I think you would be better served going with their Okna 500 series, which is in my opinion quite a bit better in terms of its energy efficiency, and the components, hardware, and overall build of the window itself. Ask the person who gave you the bid whether they have access to the 500 series and see what the cost would be on this. If it is $100 more per window or less, then I think it’s worth it. Now, you are still paying $900 a window which is not cheap, but I do think it’s worth it. Please let me know if you have any additional questions!

John, the quote on the Simonton VantagePointe, which is what HD sells, for $13.5K is the best deal of the bunch. Just make sure you get a good installation team. Insist on it.

Renewal By Andersen Windows Cost

'm replacing 12 double-hungs in Chicago and currently have Climate-Guard. I'm looking for higher-quality vinyl or fiberglass replacements. Do you have any recommendations?

I've been reading your commentary on Marvin Infinity vs Integrity. Here are the quotes we have so far, which include installation. The first three quotes are for 15 double-hungs, while the last quote is for only 12:

Renewal By Andersen Windows Cost - $35k
Marvin Elevate Windows Cost - $28k
Marvin Essential Cost - $22k
Soft-Lite Imperial LS Series - $18k (available from Scientific Home Services, rated 5 stars)
Advanced 6300 Series - $14k (available from Semco, rated 5 stars)

Janie - Homeowner - August, 2023

Website Editor's Answer

Janie, the choice I would make is the Soft-Lite Imperial LS Series for $18K -- especially because the installer has five stars! That's sort of the no brainer for me.

Renewal By Andersen Window Cost

Hello John, I am reaching out to see if I can get a comparison on alpen vs RBA. Basically the cost in a jist. Alpen is made of fiberglass versus Andersons patented "Fibrex" material. So I can imagine they are more expensive. Based on the material used. For example a window thats 71.5 x 47.5. Just a standard glider. Full frame. Thank you and have a great day!

Erick - Homeowner - January, 2023

Website Editor's Answer

Erick, Alpen is the much better window for sure over the RBA. I would actually imagine that RBA would be more expensive but that is more based on what Renewal By Andersen window cost out their projects at -- often fairly inflated prices in my opinion. When you get both bids shoot them over my way and I'm happy than happy to take a look and give you my two cents. The actual price you can expect from RBA is $2K per window. Alpen I'm not so sure -- I don't have a good bead on what they bid out their projects to collect the bid and go from there.

Renewal by Anderson Cost Quote

Hi John, my wife and I are about to embark on a remodel. We ran across your website and are interested in finding out about your recommendations. We’re looking for a decent quality option with an SDL option. We don’t want to spend a fortune (Renewal by Anderson prices were over $100,000 which seemed awfully high), but would like something that is not a low end product.

Thanks in advance,

Todd - Homeowner - May, 2022

Todd, that is a hefty bill, even for Renewal. I will send you my recommended list.

Renewal by Andersen vs ProVia Endure

How does the Privia Endure EN600 series compare to the Andersen 400 series, sold by Renewal by Andersen in product quality and warranty. Thank you!

I have 19 windows in my home I need to replace. I am partial to the
Andersen 400 series sold by Renewal by Andersen. My Hardie Siding contractor (I am also getting Hardie siding) suggested the Provia Endure EN600 series as an option. Installed price if I contract in 7 days is $19311.00, w/in 30days $20708 and w/in the year $22708.

Anderson quoted price is $33,105 for 19 windows. What do you suggest?

Krystal - Homeowner - June, 2020

Website Editor's Answer

Krystal, the ProVia Endure is a vinyl window, while the Renewal By Andersen window is a composite frame made from a fibrex material. The ProVia Endure is going to have the better quality and energy efficiency numbers. The warranties should be roughly the same, I'm not quite sure how they measure up. If I were debating between these two, I would choose the ProVia Windows myself. Typically these will also be MUCH less expensive over the Renewal.

Renewal By Andersen Prices

John, I received another quote and would like to get your opinion on it. A summary for 14 replacement windows in Central VA:

Renewal by Anderson: $20,000

Home Depot (Simonton 6500): $10,400

Lowes (Reliabilt 3500): $5,200

Skyline Windows (OKNA 600): $7,000

Okna seems to be the better window at a reasonable price. They also install windows with their own (W2)employees rather than subcontractors which I think is good.

I am looking for trouble free windows that hopefully will last 20+ years and am willing to pay more to achieve that. Not sure if any of these would accomplish that. Your thoughts would be appreciated.

Scott - Homeowner - February, 2018

Website Editor's Answer

Scott, this is a no brainer -- the Renewal! No, I'm totally kidding. $20K for 14 windows, that is a whole boat load of cash. Honestly, the Okna 600 is the clear winner; the 600 series is a way better window than the Simonton 6500 and the Reliabilt 3500, and probably just as well made as the Renewal. You should probably get a quote from the Okna dealer on their 500 or 800 series, both of which are slightly better windows -- certainly this is true of the 800 series. The 600 series is still a good vinyl window that should absolutely last 20 years with good installation. Window Replacement Pricing

Renwal By Anderson Prices

I got a Renewal replacement quote on 21 openings - $28,0000. Then I got a Wincore replacement window quote - $9,000. Am I missing something?

Mark - Homeowner - June, 2016

Website Editor's Answer

Mark, you aren't missing anything. Renewal By Andersen prices are often the most expensive quotes out there, by a lot. I know friends who have them and they love their windows, but honestly I don't think they are worth the cost.

Personally, I think Wincore makes a good vinyl window, although I would go with the upgraded 7700 series over the Wincore 5400 series myself. I feel like there is quite a bit of value in this product. Of course, I would hope that you like the look and feel of the Wincore window.

Installation (or I should say proper and thorough installation) makes a big difference, so as long as you feel comfortable with the quality of the install from the company offering the Wincore, I would do the Wincore 7700 series and save yourself a whole boatload of money over the RBA.
