Just wondering other peoples thoughts on Renewal windows and their prices. I live in San Jose, CA and I am looking to replace 2 sliding glass doors and 3 windows. Any good/bad reviews of these windows? Pricing with installation was around 13k.

Give me your thoughts?

I think anderson is over rated & overpriced. Their are many other brands on the market that are just as good and or less $$. I think Pella has a pretty good product and you can get those at ***** . Lincoln Doors & Windows are also good.

andersons I think are overpriced and overrated as well, check out local wholesale companies in your area and look for say certainteed or eve weathershield are a good window, they offer a great buy and a hell of a solid window.

We had Renewal windows put in about 2 years ago and we are very happy. Although the windows were more expensive, they are not aluminum or vinyl clad but instead are made of a fiber material that shouldn't fade over time. Also, the windows are trimmed on the exterior (e.g. brickmold) with fiber moldings, so you don't have to worry about aluminum clad trim. If you plan on staying in your house for a while, I wouldn't discount Renewal as a window replacement option.

I just had an estimate done by my local Renewal by Andersen rep and they quoted me nearly $20k for 10 windows and three sliding glass doors. One of the bigger local vinyl guys (Uniframe windows) quoted the same install for $13k. Needless to say, I'm still shopping around and getting more quotes.

I know that Andersen's the only game in town for their Fibrex composite frames, so unfortunately, there's no real comparison, but it still sounds high to me.
