Apr 03, 2018

With so many  windows to choose from, it is hard to know which window brand is right for your home. From Marvin to Anderson Renewal Windows, the question we get most is “What is the difference between the brands?”

The most well-known window brands you will hear are Marvin, Pella, Anderson Renewal, and Sunrise. So how can you tell if which brand is right for you?


Sunrise Windows
Sunrise windows are a premium brand of vinyl that is usually used for replacement installations. They are great for air infiltration, high energy efficiency, and lifetime warranty. If those qualities are important to you, then Sunrise Window is the brand you want to choose.

Anderson Renewal Windows
Anderson offers a wood window with an exterior plastic covered frame. Anderson Renewal Windows are often used for a replacement window. The frames are made of a mixture of wood sawdust and powdered vinyl. Unfortunately, this type of mixture for a window is not the strongest and will not hold up with time.

Pella Windows
Pella offers wood, fiberglass and vinyl windows. Each has their own style and usage. Pella windows have been said to have cladding problems, seal failures, rotting wood and spotted glass. They are similar to Marvin and Anderson windows except for price point. They offer windows at a higher price then Marvin Integrity windows for less ROI and quality value.
