May 31, 2022

A luxury home with striking new windowsIf you’re in the market for replacement windows for your home in the Colorado Springs, Colorado, area, you likely have a few priorities that will dictate your purchase decision. There are plenty of options available for you to choose from, and you’d be surprised by the variations in the quality level that you’ll find in today’s replacement window market. Two of the manufacturers that are widely recognized for providing high-performance replacement windows are Simonton and Andersen. Both companies have earned excellent reputations based on the superior quality of windows they manufacture, so how do you decide which option is right for your home? Here are some comparisons that might help you make the right choice:


Simonton was founded in 1946 and has spent the past 30+ years developing vinyl windows that look great, require little upkeep, and are durable enough to stand up to extreme weather conditions. Andersen spreads itself a little thin in terms of materials, offering windows made from older standards like wood, aluminum, and fiberglass, as well as newer materials like vinyl.

Energy Efficiency

Simonton has invested an impressive amount of time and money into developing windows that can help homeowners get a handle on their rising energy costs. Featuring premium vinyl frames and sashes, laminated multi-pane glass packages, and argon gas fills between the glass panes, Simonton replacement windows greatly reduce the heat transfer that can cause your home’s HVAC system to work overtime to maintain a comfortable temperature. They also come with special glass coatings that help reduce the amount of UV sunlight that enters (and heats) your home.

Warranty Protection

This is an area where Simonton truly stands out. While Andersen offers limited warranties of up to 20 years, Simonton backs its windows with a double-lifetime warranty covering the glass, vinyl, screens, and hardware. This means that your new windows are not only covered for as long as you own your home, but whoever buys your home from you is also covered. The warranty is fully transferable whether you sell the house or leave it to a child as their inheritance.
