“Builder grade” windows are a common feature in homes in the New Jersey and New York Metro area.

Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey and New York Metro sells high quality windows that present major improvements over the builder grade style windows. As you consider whether to replace your home’s windows, here’s what to consider.
Builder grade windows are the basic windows installed in a home during its construction. These windows are serviceable, at least at first, but not high quality. They’re the most basic type of windows offered by mid-grade brands, installed by home builders who want to keep their costs low and their bids competitive.
Builder grade windows can be found in new construction homes and in older homes that haven’t been updated recently. In their first years, builder grade windows may work well enough, but as the windows age, they can start to experience maintenance problems of many kinds.
Builder grade windows can develop maintenance problems over time. Here’s what to expect:
If your builder grade windows are older, these problems will only be exacerbated. After 10 or more (or less) years, you’ll likely be ready for a window replacement. You’d be amazed at the difference that high quality windows can make.
