Replacement Window Installation methods?

I am told they use the pull in method (where possible). Is this good? What other methods are used?

Though I made my decision on the Energex, why do you say Vinwinco is not a good window?

Re: Capping Question

Thanks. I will make sure I tell them how I want it done. A relative of mine recently had Window World replace the windows all I can see when I look at them, are these big semi white nails on the face of the window. :shock:

The Cambridge has a single lock, turn and tilt system and a locking screen. The Energex Elite frame is a bit bigger and has a duo lock system that tilts and turns...
