Re: Vinylmax - anyone have experience or opinions?

Yup, just a genuine consumer. We got the windows from New Windows For America. I was savvy enough to know that the rebate might not actually come through 5 years down the road. We researched the program and it was legitimate. People were getting their rebates. It just got mismanaged (yes, possibly m...

Re: Vinylmax - anyone have experience or opinions?

I will ignore the slight condescending tone of some of your remarks (I did not want to go into a long explanation) and answer about the rebate. The rebate was real. Some people did get it. The people I bought the windows from admitted to me on the phone that they were very sad and frustrated with ho...

Re: Vinylmax - anyone have experience or opinions?

FWIW it has been 6 years for us and we are still happy. The windows keep out the cold and are holding up just fine so far. They also still open and close easily.

Re: Vinylmax - anyone have experience or opinions?

Yes we did go with them. So far we are very happy. I mean, compared to our previous windows anything would have been better, but we have noticed a dramatic difference in comfort and in heating costs during the winter. They open and close easily. There have been no broken seals. We have nothing to c...

WinDoze, Thank you very much for your post. It was calm and not condescending. I also appreciate that you are from the same area as I am. I am really having second thoughts about this job, mostly from all of the input from you guys. I can relate to your mom's advice. What I really would like is more...

some of you are beyond hope. Is that me? I am utterly hopeless, adrift in the void of the universe? Dammit. I hate when that happens. That page you linked is pretty misleading. I don't like the way they present the prices like that. Even if the rebate does not work at all, the quality of windows we...

I wouldn't be as concerned with the R values of triplepane windows from certain suppliers and their slight differences...........INSTALLATION IS # UNO. With their super high rating from many consumers in the Metro area on Angie's List, I have to think that they know what they are doing. Also, the a...

You have raised some good questions about this rebate. I had never heard of such a thing and it did sound almost too good to be true. Someone requested the details and I have scanned in the sample copy of the details we have been provided. donosborn.com/rebate_details.jpg I see a couple problems alr...

Infosponge, thanks for your reply. We have been advised that we DO need to pay attention to the details. I appreciate the advice about not entering into the contract depending on getting the rebate back. We hope to, but even if we do not, the price for the triple pane Krypton windows is the same as ...

Vinylmax - anyone have experience or opinions?

This is my first post so please forgive any breech of etiquette. We have received a few quotes from people selling Gorell, Simonton, and Vinylmax windows. We are really interested in the Vinylmax (Easton 100 series) not only for the quality and price, but also because of this National Energy Rebate ...
