Reliabilt 5600 or 3201

#1 Post by gmgallo » Mon Oct 17, 2011 8:28 pm

I have read the Consumer Reports rating of the Reliabilt 5600 vinyl windows available from Lowes. Unfortunately the 5600 is not longer available. Can anyone tell me which model has replaced the 5600 or is the closest to the quality of the 5600 window? I was told by Lowes that the 3201 is the replacement but I want to be sure.

I'd suggest disregarding Consumer Reports and almost any window that can be purchased at a box store. A quick search of this site will yield several superior product choices, whether you are looking for an "installed" product, or for diy.

CR is not a valuable resource in this application. You will find 10X as much useful information on this site without having to pay a subscription....hmmmmm....business idea :lol:
