Here’s Why Name-Brand Products Are Better for Your Home

As a homeowner, you might be thinking about which brand you should go for when replacing your windows or patio doors. This isn’t always easy as there are several brands. And, with all of them offering similar products, you’d probably think that it won’t matter if you choose to go for a cheaper and lesser-known brand.

The quality of windows you install in your home makes a big difference, and choosing to cut corners will only lead to more issues down the road. Here’s what our team at Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis has to say.

Why Window Brands Matter

Off-brand companies may offer warranties, but will often fail to honor them. They might even offer warranties and end up not being in business long enough to honor them. And, even if you think window brands don’t matter, other people won’t likely share the same opinion. This can become difficult if you’re planning to sell your home later on when a potential buyer finds out you’ve installed windows from unknown manufacturers.

When you choose to get your sliding patio doors and window products from well-known brands, you can be sure that what you’re getting passes a certain standard of quality. This is especially true for older and more established brands as they’ve stayed in business after weathering various economic storms.

How You can Choose a Good Window Brand

If you’re looking for a good window contractor for your replacement job, you can start by checking out the National Fenestration Rating Council® (NFRC) list of window companies and manufacturers. The non-profit NFRC is an industry group composed of members of the window manufacturing industry. This list can help you narrow down the choices to only the brands that are top rated. By choosing windows from NFRC members, you’ll get a certain level of quality that you won’t really find with lesser-known window companies.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
