So you let it slip at a recent family get-together that you’re going to install some new windows in your house and plan to call Renewal by Anderson to get the job done.
That’s when your cousin, Al, who hasn’t said a word for three hours since he showed up and opened his first beer, excitedly leaps out of his chair and claims he’ll do the job. Al’s mother, Aunt Sue, eagerly agrees, saying “My Al’s so handy!” (Of course, Aunt Sue would claim Al’s a chemical engineer if she thought it would get him moved out of the basement.) Al says he’ll be over next Sunday, right after the Packers game, and he’ll slap those babies in.
Suddenly, you have a dilemma: trust Cousin Al to install the windows and keep peace in the family, or go with your original inclination to bring in Renewal by Anderson and their Certified Master Installers. A tough call, we know….
To help you in your decision, we’ve devised this little checklist with likely outcomes of using Renewal by Anderson vs. Cousin Al for the window install.
Renewal by Anderson Master Installers are experienced craftsmen who have ample expertise in installing all types of windows in homes of all shapes, sizes and styles. They come to your home with their “rolling workshop” ready to take on any challenges that might crop up during installation. If there are variations in wall materials and thickness, different types of casings or sill construction, issues from the structure settling, or unexpected structural damage, our Master Installers can handle it.
Cousin Al is self-taught. Though he has never actually installed a window, he figures he’ll figure things out when he gets there.
Renewal by Anderson Master Installers take pride in working with homeowners to be sure they understand the installation process and how to get the most out of their window investment. They’ll provide tips for proper operation, care, and maintenance, and answer every question to the homeowner’s satisfaction.
Cousin Al has a robust 4-letter word vocabulary; best to hide the children.
Renewal by Anderson Master Installers follow a detailed, step-by-step procedure:
- prepare the area, placing drop cloths to clean debris, and removing and inspecting the old window;
- clean and prep the opening, and insulate and seal the frame;
- inspect and verify the work after the installation is complete; and
- clean up thoroughly (including disposing of old windows that were replaced).
Cousin Al will slap those babies in.

We hope this comparison helps in your decision-making. It’s our belief that window installation is best handled by professionals who stand by their work. Nothing against Cousin Al, but he might be better suited to assist with other projects like moving refrigerators. He’ll get over it. In fact, he’ll probably forget he volunteered to do the job in the first place.
