Nuweld II replacement windows by West Window Corporation

The company is located in Martinsville, VA and has been established for a long time. Is anyone familiar with the quality of their replacement windows? In particular, I am looking for comments on the Nuweld II from homeowners and contractors alike.

Thanks

Thanks for the comments

I will ask not only for samples, but, if he has done jobs in my area with these windows- will seek references. He also told me that they use superspacer as well.

thanks again

Earthwise windows-RJT Industries

Skydawggy wrote: RJT Earthwise window is junk IMO. I'd rate it below the Alside Excalibur. I haven't seen one for a few years but they used spiral balance iirc and the sashes didn't fit the frame very well, lots of play between them. I didn't care much for the overall appearance of the window either...

Re: Schuco in Richmond VA

Window Novice, [quote="window novice"]Anyone had any dealings with Kemp Windows & Siding in Richmond VA. They are the only Schuco dealer here in Richmond. I really liked the Schuco window but am a little leary of Kemp. I don't believe they've been in business over 3-4 years. I've checked the BBB and...

Atrium Windows made in NC- any opinions on quality

I am probably beating an old thread somewhere..sorry about that.
However, I am looking for opinions on Atrium 8700, 8500 and 8300 series.
My installer deals only with one particular distributor and they sell these windows under the private label of Windjammer.

Thanks

KColney, I am researching right now also. I have 20 windows and I think you are on the money unless you are getting triple pane glass in which case you are doing even better in my opinion. My contractor is asking for $50 a window to remove single pane and install new replacement pocket window. I am ...
