I presently have an Anderson roof window that I planned to replace because the wood frame is rotting and it leaks when the wind and rain are blowing just right. I've had it for 20 years with no other problem. A contractor just told me that Anderson quit making roof windows because the quality was no good, but I see them listed on the internet and I'm wondering if this is true. Should I go back with a Velux? Can I even still get an Anderson replacement for the roof window or a stationary skylight?

For your own satisfaction I would suggest going around your contractor. Check with a local Andersen dealer or you also might be able to contact their customer support.
I checked at www.andersenwindows.com They have a help center
Hope this was helpful
Good luck
