Vinyl replacement in Shoreline Home, Connecticut

#1 Post by arnieplc » Fri Oct 29, 2010 7:29 pm

35 windows double hung in 1933 built home. Need advice as to best of the following to install by pro.
Alside Excalibur @ $11,650: Okna Insul-Tec 500 Deluxe (foam filled) @$12,250; There are two others and foolishly I don't have the brand names but they are said to be 500 Deluxe for $14,910 and $14,600.

But as to the irst two, I'm leaning towards the Okna from what I've read and posts here.

Your thoughts are appreciated.

WoW.

Not even a comparison. The Excalibur vs. the Okna is like bringing a butter knife to a gun fight.

As long as you have checked out the company and they are doing everything they need to do in terms of lead safe work, you got an killer deal.

Major understatement. The Okna would easily go for $600 pc here in NY.

Thanks. It seemed from other posts that Alside wasn't a great window and I'm leaning towrds Okna. If anyone else has input I'd appreciate it.

My input would be to go with the Okna.
