Help decide between quotes

#1 Post by Weyerserv » Fri Dec 30, 2016 10:48 pm

I have three quotes that I'm trying to decide between, but need some guidance...

17 windows

Polaris Ultraweld (Supreme 2 glass option | double pane) - $8,900
Soft-Lite Elements (Ultra S Glass option | triple pane) - $10,200
Alside Preservation (EnergyMaxx 10 glass option | triple pane) - $9,600

All three seem like fine options, but just looking for other opinions at this point.

Option 1 or 2 are great.

Go with whichever of the two that you liked better (i.e. looks, company, etc.).

I agree with WoW. Stay away from any Alside product.

If you have the Soft-lite dealer quote double pane, the pricing would get closer.

The soft lite will have a higher structural rating as well as a slightly better ufactor; its also a nicer looking window.

I agree that the first two are the best choices.

Another vote for the first two. The Elements is probably a little better than the Ultraweld and that price delta will be narrowed by comparing apples to apples glass. The Preservation does not belong in the same conversation. The pocket sill is a deal breaker, but its also bulky and does not offer elite level performance.

I too would vote for the first two options, but the ultimate choice is always yours.There are a lot of things that you should know before settling in for a company.Make sure that they have good customer feedback for their products.
