I needed new windows and called Andersen Windows first for a bid. I live in a small 1150 sq ft house that has 6 windows and one slider.
He came to my house and gave me an estimate of $24000.00 for 5 windows and a slider. I called my son and he came by. My son said it was way too expensive. I still wanted the windows but took my son's advice.
One year later I got 6 new windows and a slider put in for about $2900.00. Sure the Andersen windows are probably a little better but not $21100.00 better. A friend of my sons installed the windows and I paid him to do it. I am 65 years old.
I also had another window company do a bid and it was $5400.00. I feel like I was going to be ripped off royally.
I'm sure glad I listened to my sons advice. I'm very happy with my windows.
