Andersen Windows & Doors - Rotting of Anderson windows

We built our brick home in 1996. My husband was a finish carpenter out of the union. He bought only the best because it always pays off. Right, wrong not with Anderson windows.

We have the casement windows. 8 double, two with 4 units,one with 3 a a single. It was a lot of money then and now to replace these units with the new "better" windows since they realize their mistakes is only $65,000. That was given to us last week. We called numerous times when we were seeing damage. Never a rep then when they did come they would get an answer. 15 years of back and forth while the warranty ran out. In my opinion that is why they have started the Anderson Restoration company. Even though their window is for superior now what else can they possibly say. We purchased screens for all windows, wood dividers (tabs broke), and they were the tinted glass more money. Boy were we stupid. I am joining all of those with law suits and complaints. I think at 65,000 for replacement they should pay for ignoring the problem when it could have been warranted. Good luck to all.

Desired outcome: Reimbursement of some kind

Andersen Windows & Doors - Anderson Windows mold/mildew no warranty

Built home in 2008 and purchased high quality Anderson Windows. After moving in, we experienced condensation on many of the windows. After contacting the builder and Anderson rep., they assured me that it was the house drying out and it will stop. After two winters of wiping windows, we tried to contact or builder but was told he retired. We contacted the supplier of the windows and was told they would get back to us. After many calls and no response, we began to be disappointed in Anderson Windows. We began to live with the mold and mildew growing on the windows. Every year, I tried to contact a rep. but no response. Started reading how mold is dangerous, contacted Anderson Corporate. Went through video conferencing and after two hours was told “Sorry”, no warranty. Not all of my windows have mold on them, some are in perfect condition. Corporate could not explain why but placed blame on poor house keeping. Poor service, poor customer service and good luck with that manufacturer warranty.

Desired outcome: Replace molded windows

The door may need to be adjusted to make a better seal. However, adjustments, inspections or water tests are not covered by the Andersen warranty.

If you need a new door gasket then I can get that for you but replacement labor is not covered by AW.

You may want to hire the local AW service provider to make adjustments or an inspection. If there are any warranty parts needed then he can get them or if adjustments need to be made then he may be able to do that as well.

Hi Tom,

Thanks for getting back to me. I am concerned the seal at the

top of the door is not seated correctly. I used the same hose and

rinsed the 12 yo. Anderson door and no water entered.

Importantly I kept the hose moving at all times and did not put

a jet on a small location for any duration.

I am concerned about what would occur in hurricane when the

rain is blowing sideways at 75 mph and there is high pressure

outside the window and low pressure inside.

Since the door is under warranty, I thought could have someone

check the top seal or do a water test to see if it meets specifications.

Thanks

Bill :)y

If the water came over the top of the door panel then that is not uncommon. It can happen naturally if wind drives the water up the panel and over or the hose could of squirted it over the panel. Since the door slides there is very little seal at the top or bottom of the door that is why there is a sill tank on the room side to allow water to drain out ( all sliders not just AW )

If water came between the glass and the wood stop then that could be an issue but I didn't see that in the video

I did not get the video.

Do you have a couple of pictures?

There may not be a problem. Water can be on the inside of the door, panel, sill, etc. It would depend on where it is

Hi Jeff, Tom

The Anderson patio door that was installed (approx. June 2021)

leaks. Yesterday I used a hose to wash off the door and noticed

there was water on the inside glass of the slider door. I have a video

demonstrating this but it is too large to email with AOL. I did

have success sending it from my gmail account. Looking forward

to both of you working together to solve this problem.

Thanks

Andersen Windows & Doors - Screen door 2500 series

I purchased my screen door from Home Depot. I had a contractor install it. One week after the hinge snapped and came off. I contacted customer service to send me the part and they told me that it wasn't part of the warranty. It's been hung for one week. I live in a condominium

and in a corner where there is no intense excessive winds - I live in southern Florida. Now I have paid over 450$ for a door that is hung and broken. I will try Home Depot for some support as Andersen was/ is no help. I warn you all please do not buy their products which are made poorly and to top it off you wait for hours on hold for Customer service which are not helpful at all .

Andersen Windows & Doors - Andersen Windows 400 series twin casement

In July of 2010 we hired a certified Andersen contractor to replace 11 older Andersen windows and doors with new ones. 1 awning casement, 4 twin casements, 2 panel gliders, 2 double hung, a picture window, an outswing French door and a sliding doorwall. ($21, 644) Andersen warranties the glass for 20 years, but the rest of the window structure is only warrantied for 10 years. This October we discovered that all 3 twin casement windows on the back of the house have a split in the outside cladding in the EXACT same location on each window. Additionally our custom picture window has had a separation in the inside of the wood frame, it's slid over almost a inch in the last 10 years time. In 2011 the French door had one panel of glass spontaneously shatter in a bizarre way (Andersen replaced that glass, no charge).
Although we made the discovery of the casement windows outside of the warranty time, this failure may have happened before then, since the windows are well above eye level. We feel that there is a clear manufacturing flaw going on because of the way the three windows have split in the same spot. Because they can hide behind their warranty date, Andersen has no reason to step up and replace these windows, so this is a 'buyer beware' posting. Pricey windows from a reputable company are still no guarantee of quality. They may look beautiful for a time, but they aren't really any better than other companies.

Andersen Windows & Doors - Poor customer support

I purchased an Andersen 400 Series Patio Door and the locking mechanism did not work properly since day 1. I called customer service today and they told me the following:

1) I will need to review videos that they provided to debug the problem and the associated parts that need to be replaced.

2) I will then have to call back, provide my diagnostics, and then they will send me replacement parts for free but I will need to pay someone to install the parts.

My problem is two-fold: 1) I am not a door mechanic nor do I want to be responsible for the diagnosis. 2) They sold me a lemon and now I have to pay for someone to fix it?

Spent $4k on the door because I thought Andersen was a name you could count on. Evidently I was wrong. Never again!

Desired outcome: Send someone to my house and fix the door!!!!

My latch on the storm door has no striker plate, and Anderson people told me there is no need for one. The door is so sloppy that this morning after a snow fall the inside handle had snow on it. I am going to have to purchase a new door, but you can bet your next pay check, it won't be an Anderson. They told me when I purchased it, it was top of the line.

Andersen Windows & Doors - Back door

The door was installed incorrectly from day one. It was shown to be the completely wrong door once someone other than installation looked at it. Andersen had been here over 10 times. Each time bringing an incorrect part or provided a fix that only lasted a matter of hours. The handle fell off the door within 48 hours of it being installed. The seal has been compromised since installation. It is not water tight or animal tight for that matter. We have had TWO lizards get in under the door while the door has been fully locked! Both deadbolt and 3point locked. They have replaced the door itself when the entire door and frame were supposed to be taken out and redone. Mind you, we have only had this door since October. I also have it in writing that water damage caused by their product would be corrected and they will no longer respond to me. Nothing has been done to correct the water damage. We were also made to start paying prior to the installation of the door even though we were told the first payment wouldn't be due until after installation. I have requested a refund and was told that would happen once they got the door back. I can't get a door installed until September but apparently I have to keep paying on this door anyways.

Desired outcome: Refund

Andersen Windows & Doors - Service

I was referred to one of your representatives Michael Yannotti ( (516) 779-9676) to get an estimate on replacing my bay window. Mr Yannotti said it would be about $10K to $20K to replace - as it's a big job where he has to replace framing & molding. I said ok, I would like an estimate so I know how to move forward. He said would I be financing as most of his customers finance as it doesn't matter the area where you live. I listened. He proceeded to ask if I had $10K-$15K to replace the window. I explained again, I would like an estimate to replace the existing window. Are you asking me for $10K-15K before you come out to look at my window? He said ahhh yeah, these windows are expensive. He said I can go with a less expensive company but they won't give me a 10 yr warranty. I said if you are asking for money before looking at the job, no thank you! He was direct but his questioning about money was rude! Assuming I didn't have money to replace my window. I won't be making any purchase with your company because of him! He gives your company a BAD name.

Desired outcome: Definitely a Reprimand, worse case—>fired!

Andersen Windows & Doors - 90748 andersen 3000 series ventilating storm d/36x80

We purchased this storm door and had it installed in May of 2019. The middle bar in the door (where the two glass panels meet) is all bent and looks awful. Plus, there is a piece of rubber on the bottom of the door that has come loose and is hanging there. We are very disappointed in the quality of this storm door, since it is just my husband and i that use it. I wasn't sure what your policy was for fixing this issue. Please let me know, so i can continue from here. Thank you.

Andersen Windows & Doors - Bay windows and double Hung Units

The windows were order on 3/5/21, via Home Depot order No. H1245-165832. The windows were wrong. One of the window was not a Bay and the other window supposed to be one unit, but somehow Anderson separated the window (s). Home Depot decided to re-order on 5/24/21. The wait time for this new order is until 6/28/21.
Called Home Depot and was told to call Anderson. Called Anderson on 6/14/21, to expedite the order, since the windows were order since March 5, 2021. The call was handover to a senior customer service rep. Phillip Mueller, was said that the production is the same even Anderson made and error or not. This gentleman, did not want to listen to the customer need. He insist that, he cannot help me and did not care to understand the issue.
I asked to speak to his supervisor and he said that he is the most senior person in the Company. Please help me expedite this order.

Andersen Windows & Doors - French patio door

My husband and I purchased a Andersen patio door from Home Depot in Levittown NY. The paint on the interior of the door is defective . You can take it off with your finger. We started by calling Andersen and were told the issue needed to be resolved by Home Depot because that's where it was ordered from. The customer service at Home Depot is awful. No one wants to help you with anything. They don't even pick the phone up. Finally after weeks of calling someone called us back saying that if we are willing to keep the doors Andersen will give us replacement panels. We agreed
A few days later the same person called us back from Home Depot and told us that Andersen now says they will replace only one panel. This makes no sense because it is a 2 panel door and both are defective. I requested a full refund and was told by Home Depot that I can't get that even though I'm with in my 1 year warranty period. Very frustrating
The door is an eyesore and and embarrassment.
We have had Andersen products before and we're happy with them
That's why we ordered this door but it is a disaster.

Desired outcome: 2 new door panels

Andersen Windows & Doors - Sales quotation

We had a sales rep to our home, to quote for 6 windows in our kitchen. The rep was at our home for 2 hours. Granted, the product looked good but the price was an absolute insult. We did our homework before the consultation, so we knew our budget. The cost quoted was $24, 000 for SIX WINDOWS! We were offered a ‘buy now' discounted price of $18, 000, if we purchased there and then. We decided this was completely over priced and advised the sales rep we were not going ahead.
Andersen called the following evening, at 8.30pm. I answered the questions. The caller constantly asked why I wasn't going ahead, and found my answer unacceptable. I had to politely inform the caller I wasn't interested and didn't care for the tone used.
This is not how you win business of a new customer, who has not fully exercised their quotation process. I will for sure, never purchase Andersen Windows based on this level of intrusion and over pricing!

Andersen Windows & Doors - Storm screen door

Bought Andersen door going on three years ago. Had a professional install and almost immediately had problems with the pull down screen. Andersen sent a replacement and put that in only to have the replacement rip as had the original. However, that was only part of the problem as the door would only slam or not close efficiently. Despite many attempts the problem continued and have had a new heavy-duty door closer installed but with no relief.

So the door has to be replaced I fear and I fear I have received a lemon and have to start over without Andersen - would love to have an Andersen professional inspect and give me a review.

Desired outcome: Arrange to have Andersen professional visit and inspect!
