I live in south central Wisconsin and have been getting quotes from a number of installers for:
6 - 40" x 54" Double Hung Windows
3 - 36" x 46" Double Hung Windows
All are for replacement windows white interior and exterior.
The SchÃ¼co dealer came up with a price of $7682 for Corona 4000s. Roughly $850 per opening. This seems a little high from what I have been seeing on this site. I'm impressed with the specs I see for the SchÃ¼cos, but I'm not sure they are worth the price. What do folks here think a reasonable counter offer might be? $700, $750, $800 per window?
The Lindsay dealer came up with a price of $4911. Roughly $545 per opening. This is for double-pane, argon filled, low-e glass with silcone warm edge sealed spacers. The Lindsays seem to be well constructed and come with a good warranty. Does anyone have any comments on this brand?
Obviously there is a difference between the two besides the $300; U-factor is .31 for Lindsay, .22 for SchÃ¼co. SHGC is .30 for the Lindsay, .29 for the SchÃ¼co. VT is .50 for the Lindsay and .38 for the SchÃ¼co.
The triple-pane seems to be the big factor for improving the U-factor and decreasing the VT. Is this correct? What other things should I be looking for.
Installation and warranties seem to be comparable for the two.
Any help or advice would be appreciated.
