Hi All,

Looking at some different quotes that I have received.

My specs are as follows, all windows have colonial flat grids

1- 48x60 Double or Single Hung
1- 24x60 Double or Single Hung
1- 47x24 Slider - Tempered and obscured for a 2nd floor bathroom
1 - Fixed 72x36

I have received a $2300 bid from Window World for their 4000 series (Alside Mezzo looks like)

FAS windows quotes $3500 for 2 Distinctions (Laminated Simonton Impression 9800) for double hung and Foundations (Simonton 5050) for the other two

One local company gave me a rough estimate of $3200 over the phone for 2 PGT Hurricane 5500 single hung and 5400 series for the slider and fixed.

The fixed window currently leaks from the bottom of the frame up when their is a hard sideways directional rain, and I am looking for sound suppression in the double hung/single hung windows. I currently have single pane aluminum windows so I know any vinyl double pane should be an upgrade.

Are the Mezzo that bad for $1000 less?

Of those units, I like the PGT. Are they quoting you laminated glass?

Yes, the rough quote over the phone included laminated on the 5500 windows.

I agree on the PGT being the best of the choices presented, and yes, the Mezzo that bad, even for half the price of the others.

Its a slam dunk at that point with the laminated glass.

If you are open to other options, I believe that Okna and Softlite (maybe Sunrise?) have some availability in NC as well. I'd definitely check into that if you have not already moved forward.
