Wincore Windows vs Andersen

Wincore Windows vs Andersen - how do these two companies stack up against one another? Let's take a closer look.

Wincore and Andersen don't actually share all that much in common with one another. Wincore is a West Virginia based company founded in 2007 (so a young pup basically). Andersen Windows is Minnesota based and has been at it for 100 years (making them a grizzled veteran). Wincore is not a household name and sells four vinyl window series and doors, while Andersen is a household name and sells three wood-clad series and the 100 composite series.

About the only similarities between these two is the fact that they each sell four window and door series. Also, each company enjoys good reputations for making quality products, although I would give the nod to Andersen in the reputation department."

Wincore Windows vs Andersen

Company Information

Wincore is a West Virginia based company that started in 2007. They were founded by several Simonton Window executives that were dissatisfied with how this much larger company operated. (I actually don't know the specific gripes they had, but it was enough to push them to start an entirely new company) Today, Wincore Windows And Doors enjoys a good reputation in the industry. Let's give them a 7.5 out of 10.

Andersen is known throughout the United States with an extensive dealer network in all 50 states. They are based in Minnesota and employ some 12,000 employees. They are a MUCH larger operation than Wincore and have been around for over 100 years. Let's give them a 8.5 out of 10.

What They Sell

In terms of what they sell, there isn't much cross over when it comes to Wincore Windows vs Andersen. WC sells all vinyl windows, with the 7700 and 8800 impact series being their most popular. They also sell an 8800 impact window, as well as two new construction models. What to find out more, read all of our Wincore Windows reviews.

Andersen, on the other hand, sells wood clad windows in the 200 and 400 series, as well as a fibrex composite 100 series. They also sell an A Series -- or Architectural series -- which is super high end.

Renewal By Andersen (also owned by the Anderson Corporation) sells a fibrex composite window that is beefier and better upgraded (glass, components, hardware) than the Andersen 100 -- but uses the exact same materials in the frame.

How They Market

Wincore sells their windows & doors using various dealers spread across much of the eastern half of the United States. This is a pretty standard approach in the industry.

Andersen sells in the big box stores such as Home Depot, through contractors, and through a wide array of window installation companies. They sort fire on all cylinders if you will.

Renewal sells only through their exclusive network of franchised dealers, which spend lots of advertising and promotion in their local markets.

Cost Comparison

Wincore is comparable to Simonton Window costs -- somewhere in that mid range vinyl price range. Andersen is toward the top of the wood clad window cost range, although the 100 series is more in that mid range composite window price range. Wincore Windows Price List

Renewal By Andersen prices are at the very top of that composite price range - think $1600 to $2600 each - which includes the window installation cost. However, I don't think their fibrex series is as good as other composites, namely the Okna Starmark window.

Andersen Windows Cost are near the top of the wood-clad space. They share this high price point with rival companies such as Pella and Kolbe. Andersen pricing is, I would say, worth it as they make high quality products.

Wincore vs Anderson 100 Series

Dane, we’ve been looking at a couple different brands and would love to get your take on whether the Wincore 7700 series is better than the Anderson 100 series. They’re roughly the same with the Anderson being a little more expensive. Also, the Anderson installation would be through Home Depot, which it looks like you don’t necessarily endorse.

[Site Editor's Answer]

Buzz, I think I would say that the Wincore 7700 series is about on par with the Anderson 100 series. I like the look of the Anderson better, but I’m pretty sure that Wincore is gonna be the more energy efficient windows of the two. I think for me it would come down to who is doing the install work. This is going to be the bigger factor in terms of the overall quality and longevity of the windows. So make sure thoroughly compare the installation companies, online ratings and reviews.
