Frequently Asked Questions

Do you carry vinyl replacement windows?

Do composite windows hold up better than wood?
Yes, composite windows made of Fibrex material from Andersen will never flake, blister, peel, pit or corrode.

Do you have your own installers?
Yes, all window installations are done by our own professional installers and subcontractors, and all labor warranties are backed by Architect’s Choice, a division of Overhead Inc. of Toledo.

What is lead time on special order windows?
Typically special orders require a 5-7 week lead time. Some lead times may vary based on the size of the order and whether it’s a custom or standard window options.

Does Andersen provide replacement windows or are they just for new construction? 
Both Architect’s Choice and Andersen Windows have products for both replacement and new construction windows. We explain all the parts of replacement and new construction windows.

Why are fiberglass entry doors better that steel? 
Fiberglass has a lifetime warranty and will not rust or dent like a steel door. In addition, fiberglass entry doors are more energy efficient.

Are fiberglass entry doors maintenance free? 
No door is maintenance free. Fiberglass doors should be washed occasionally or when dirty, much like you would do for your car. Wood grain stained doors, like a real wood door, may need refinishing or a coat of polyurethane as they are exposed to weather over the years. Also, like a real wood door, a wood grain fiberglass door can be stripped and re-stained to another color if desired.

How can I understand all the parts to my entry door?

Our “anatomy of an entry door” guide explains all the parts to your entry door. If you need any further help, our sales team can answer any of your entry door questions.

Can I get a Lifestyle screen on any size garage door?  
The smallest Lifestyle screen is 6’ wide x 7’ tall and the largest is 18’ wide by 10’ tall. Any size in between can be customized for your specific garage or screen system project.
