This was the best $22,ooo i've ever spent. I had five other companies show me windows and nothing came close. Can't hear dogs barking or trains running and the air conditioner never seems to run anymore!!!

Window Comments

A very nicely made vinyl window with a few cosmetic features that make it look spiffier than cheaper brands. Also comes with a very good warranty. I'm very happy with this choice.

Window Comments

Love them. Clean lines. Also purchased sliding doors. Impressed with qualiaty and appearance. As for performance, this is the first summer we have been able to keep the house comfortable -- and the upstairs liveable -- when the DC temps go into the 100's. Almost did Schuco but got a bait & switch when I went to place the order. Glad I didn't spend that extra money, especially for the climate.

Installed by Sunshine Contracting Corporation of VA

No heavy sales pitch since I knew what I wanted. There was no demand to involve my husband -- the entire project was mine . 2 installers did 16 double hung, 1 slider, and 3 sliding patio doors in 2 days. Work was immaculate.

Install Grade: 5.0

Price was excellent as I dealt directly with the owner.
