I live in Ohio, all of the windows are 100" or less in United Inches, have grids in top 1/2 and have 1/2 screens. I plan to sell this house in 3 years so Schuco is not in the equation. (sorry Schuco fans...not to mention the salesman never called me back)
All are for double pane low e argon. 18 windows total.
Reliabilt (Lowes) $5300
Alside Excalibur $5800 (also gives me a $300 Sams Club card)
Alside Sheffield Or Ultramaxx $6300 (also gives me a $300 Sams Club card)
Gilkey Premium window $7700
Champion (haha) $10,600 and they want to put a sign in my yard for 4 months
I'm leaning towards the Alside Sheffield or Gilkey. Champion and Reliabilt are out. Wondering if there really is a difference between Excalibur and Sheffield in the real world and not just in some lab tests.
I see people getting quotes MUCH higher for fewer windows. NEGOTIATE!
