When it comes to replacing windows in your home, there are many options to consider. Two popular brands that you may come across in Southern California are American Vision Windows and Renewal by Andersen windows.

American Vision Windows was founded in 1999 by Bill and Kathleen Herren, a husband-and-wife team who started the company with the goal of providing homeowners with high-quality, energy-efficient windows and exceptional customer service.

Before starting American Vision Windows, Bill Herren worked in the window and door industry for over 15 years, where he gained extensive knowledge and experience in window manufacturing and installation. He saw an opportunity to start his own company that would focus on providing homeowners with a better window replacement experience, with a focus on quality, affordability, and customer service.

Renewal by Andersen was founded in 1995 as a subsidiary of Andersen Corporation, a leading window and door manufacturer that has been in business for over 100 years. Renewal by Andersen was established as a separate division to focus exclusively on replacement windows and doors, with a goal to provide homeowners with a hassle-free way to upgrade their homes with high-quality, custom-fit replacement windows and doors.

While both brands offer quality products, there are some differences between the two that may influence your decision. In this blog, we will explore some of the key differences between American Vision Windows and Renewal by Andersen windows.

  1. Materials

Renewal by Andersen windows are made from Fibrex, which is a composite material that consists of wood fibers and thermoplastic polymer. This material is known for its durability and energy efficiency. American Vision Windows, on the other hand, offers a variety of window materials, including vinyl, wood, and fiberglass.

  1. Installation

Renewal by Andersen windows are installed exclusively by their certified installers. This ensures that the installation is done correctly and up to the brand’s standards. American Vision Windows, on the other hand, offers professional installation, but it is not mandatory to use their installation services.

  1. Warranty

Renewal by Andersen offers a comprehensive 20-year limited warranty on their products, which covers both the materials and the installation. American Vision Windows offers a limited lifetime warranty on their products, but the specifics of the warranty can vary depending on the product.

  1. Price

Renewal by Andersen windows are generally more expensive than American Vision Windows. This is due to the high-quality materials used and the exclusive installation process. American Vision Windows, on the other hand, offers a range of price points to fit different budgets.

  1. Customization

Renewal by Andersen offers a wide range of customization options, allowing homeowners to choose the perfect window style, color, and hardware to fit their home’s aesthetic. American Vision Windows also offers some customization options, but they may not have the same level of variety as Renewal by Andersen.

Overall, both American Vision Windows and Renewal by Andersen offer quality window products, but they differ in terms of materials, installation, warranty, price, and customization. When choosing between the two brands, it is important to consider your specific needs and budget to determine which option is the best fit for your home.
