Re: Peachtree Windows or Milguard or Pella

Check out Consumer Reports of their review of various types and manufacturers of windows.

I found it very helpful before I ordered my Survivor 7100 Reliabilts.

I hope this helps.

Re: Best Window

Check out window ratings at Consumer Reports.com

They rate most of the top brands.

I wanted to go vinyl so I recently bought Survivor 7100 Reliabilts that are an grade up from the 5600 Reliabilts that were rated the best vinyl window
overall by Consumer Reports.

I hope this helps.
