Re: Best Windows for the Price

Unfortunately, the Okna dealer in my area canceled on me the day of the appointment and they won’t return my calls to reschedule. The Soft-Lite dealer in my area has a terrible reputation as a company. So, I think the Sunrise and Polaris windows are my only options for better windows. After posting ...

Re: Best Windows for the Price

I agree that the “free” energy audit is pricey compared to what I was quoted for the other windows (double the price). But, I honestly don’t know what is a fair price. What would a good price be for those Polaris windows if I didn’t have the “free” energy audit?

Re: Best Windows for the Price

The ratings I gave you are the ratings for their double hung windows. The windows I’m getting are one casement and 3 double hung windows (for a total of 4 windows), but I only used the double hung ratings so they would be comparable to each other. Most of these are triple pane. The only double pane ...

Best Windows for the Price

For an idea of my climate and what I’m looking for: I live in Southwest Michigan and winters get very cold and summers get very hot. I’ve gotten a lot of window bids. Here’s what I’ve gotten with brands, NFRC ratings, and cost. This is my first time buying windows and I want a good deal along with a...

Re: Vista (Jacks Wholesale Windows) vs. Alside (Hansons)

I was just quoted $2,489 for Pella 250 series windows as another option. I’ve heard of Pella before and never Alside or Vista. But, I’m not sure if that’s a good deal and a good window. Thoughts?

Re: Vista (Jacks Wholesale Windows) vs. Alside (Hansons)

As for which model of Alside they offer, I asked and they say it’s custom made for their company. So, I’m not actually sure about that.

Re: Vista (Jacks Wholesale Windows) vs. Alside (Hansons)

Those are the two main window companies in the area. I don’t know of any other competitors offering any of the options you listed. I just want to make sure I get the better window for the price I’ll be paying.
