Again this is not correct. A sash cord is part of the window mechanism; they are not blinds or shutters or any kind of window treatment. I appreciate you guys looking but it's insulting when you say at the end that i could do it myself, which i have tried and come up with only only one company who when contacted doesn't have any availability for the next 6 weeks. Hence, my plea for other names......

Looks like Al personnel do not know the difference between sash cords and blind cords.

Your vendor would be a Handyman with direct experience replacing sash cords for that brand - else a Windows installation contractor or vendor - some distributors who sell windows also do installations and this type of repair.

Clearly I am not familiar with all of Anderson (or any other brand) sash cords - but you can find a lot of diagrams and Youtube videos likethis one on the web -

If you are somewhat brave as a DIY'er you can probably do it yourself, especially if you know how to remove your sashes (assuming that are removeable without disassembling any of the outer frame). Google a search phrase like this for articles and videos - Anderson sash cord replacement - and also check on the Anderson website for detailed diagrams of how the sash pocket is built and how the cover pieces are installed.

Otherwise you will likely have to wait for an opening by a window installer - and might be on fairly short notice when they have an hour or two opening unexpectantly, like at the end of a day when they finished early installing new windows on a nearby job.
