Go to the Simonton website where you can enter your zip code and a list of mostly distributors will appear and they should be able to direct you to a dealer

I did... One placed I called in Toledo told me the guy hasn't worked there for a couple of years... They sell wholesale only.

Not sure how you should proceed on finding a Simonton dealer, but some other top tier choices that should be available to you are Softlite and Gorell. They have locator functions as well, and will more than likely put you directly in touch with a dealer.

Thank you. I did call Simonton and asked if the installers for Simonton Windows still need to go through some sort of certification on their windows... They really did me a yes or a no, but did email me 3 recommended installers in the area.

Softlite and Gorell? I will do some more research...

Pay no attention to "factory certifications". Manufacturers hand those out like candy to their dealers with no training required.
Generally, the most highly regarded vinyl windows available are the top offerings of Sunrise, Softlite, HiMark/Okna, and Gorell. Simonton and Great Lakes/PlyGem are very solid choices as well. The only products that you won't be able to get are HiMark and Okna.

Softlite is about 50 miles away, Gorell is even farther.

I regularly go on sales calls at that distance.
