These are the 2 options in front of me (at the moment) for 7 DH near Boston. The Simonton is about $500 more. The installer on the Accu Weld has been around for 20 years, installed my neighbor's windows, I spoke to her and she couldn't be happier. The installer on the Simonton has much less experience/track record, but seems to know his stuff (he is 1 course away from being certified to teach window replacement).
I'm guessing from a quick search on this forum that Accu Weld is an inferior window, but some of the complaints I saw were a couple years old, and I don't know if they might have improved their product. Given what you know from my limited info, which is the better value?
The Accu Weld guy said he would use Harvey windows if I preferred those, for about the same price as the Simonton. How would Harvey do in this mix?
Thanks for your time
