Anderson Complaint - What Happened To Anderson
They used to be known for good stuff. I bought an Anderson screen/storm door from Home Depot. The one where the screen rolls out as you lower the window. Screen got derailed, stuck and damaged within the first week. The the closer thing got stuck in the open position and I had to remove it and throw it away. Total Junk. This was the most expensive screen door I could buy at home depot. Should have learned my lesson but did not. Bought an Anderson permashield sliding patio door at Home depot. It is a poor design that leaks air in several places. It is installed square an plumb within 1/32 inch. They said over the phone that it is an installation problem. (wrong) its just a bad design. Seals are cheap, small and leaky. They don't overlap much so any normal variation is multiplied and magnified.
I have installed others, Eagle, Pella etc... no problems. I wish they would get back to making quality products by design. Until then I will try others. I regret buying these Anderson doors. And I spent a lot of money on them.
