Window Replacement Companies | A

Andersen vs Pella

Andersen and Pella are arguable the most popular window brands in the fenestration industry. Both are known as high end manufacturer of wood-clad window and doors. Each of these companies has been around for over 100 years and they are pretty much direct competitors. They each enjoy a brand score of 8.5, which is pretty tough to beat.

Anlin Windows vs Milgard

Compare Anlin vs Milgard window brands and see which is the winner in our head-to-head match ups.

Milgard is a much bigger company than Anlin, although I would say that Milgard's overall reputation isn’t as strong amongst industry insiders.

Fibrex vs Vinyl Windows

When it comes to fibrex vs vinyl windows, there are a number of factors to consider. First off, fibrex is the proprietary frame material used by Renewal by Andersen and the Andersen 100 series. Vinyl is a pretty generic term for the uPVC material that is used to some extent in all vinyl window frames. Let's see how these two materials compare on strength, cost, etc.

Jeld Wen vs Andersen

Jeld Wen has a pretty so-so reputation for their vinyl windows, while their doors often get plenty of kudos. Andersen enjoys a very good reputation in the industry; one of the best as far as I’m concerned. They deserve the reputation, but you will pay a pretty penny for their high end windows and doors.

Marvin vs Andersen

Marvin is less well known than Andersen, however, from an overall quality perspective, I would say these two are very close. (I might even give Marvin the nod in overall industry reputation) Marvin is best known for their high quality fiberglass windows, while Andersen is best known for their wood-clad series.

Milgard vs Andersen

Milgard is a West Coast based company that manufactures 6 to 7 separate window models or series. Their two most popular series are the Tuscany and the Trinsic, both mid range vinyl windows. Andersen is a Minnesota based company that does not make all that many window and door series - 4 in total, although they also have a franchise called Renewal by Anderson. The company is best known for making premium wood windows and doors. While both of these companies enjoy good reputations in general, Andersen has the better overal reputation I would say.

Milgard vs Renewal By Andersen

Milgard is a west coast based manufacture that specializes in vinyl, fiberglass, and aluminum clad series, while Renewal is a franchise of Anderson and is available in all 50 states. The company makes a composite window series that gets decent, but not great, performance numbers. While Milgard enjoys a pretty good reputation in the industry, Renewal probably has the overall better reputation - although I would probably personally disagree with this assessment.

Ply Gem vs Milgard

Ply Gem is a relatively large home product manufacturer (siding, windows, etc.) that is based in Cary, North Carolina.

Milgard is a medium sized manufacturer with nine factories located across the western half of the United States.
