Hi guys, thanks for the response so far.
Yes, I am indeed all over the place because there are so many good/bad reviews on different products. That's why i'm trying to narrow it down to the ones that suck the least.
I actually have only looked at 3 windows & patio door brands so far, all at Home Depot.
Anderson, Jeld-Wen, and that new one they carry (Craft... something?)
Didn't get any quotes yet, they were bizzy, just wanted to check them out as a starting point.
I thought Andersons did vinyl replacement? I like their 400 series maple patio door, but i noticed it didn't open/close very easy.. prolly the demo there isn't in good shape? Any comments on that?
Todd, my budget is around $5k for a patio door, and five windows, each about 4' square. I *think* i want vinyl replacements, as i don't see a reason to do otherwise. White is fine for color, except for the patio door, where the wood is preferred, but not mandatory.
A construction friend of mine suggested Mill-Gard, said he's installed them before and they seem like fine windows. Any comments on Millgard?
As for Simonton, you are right, thanks, i didn't see the "where to buy" link there. Funny, the 1st option that pops up IS home depot!
They offer the following:
6200 by Simonton
6400 by Simonton
6500 by Simonton
ClearValue by Simonton
Other local dealers offer these:
Simonton DaylightMax (7300)
Simonton Madeira (7500)
Verona by Simonton
Any comments on these options?
Thanks for the time guys!
