Choosing the best Vinyl & Wood Manufacturer

#1 Post by l00king4gr8windows » Fri Apr 29, 2005 11:10 pm

Hello All,

Please only those who will provide an educated un-biased opinion:

I am looking at the following manufacturers and want to know who is best?

Vinyl: Certainteed, International, LBL, Milgard,Anlin, Simonton, Pella, or Atrium

Wood: Superior, Marvin, Windsor, Weathershield, or Hurd

Also looking at a product called Prism Grid. Any thoughts?

Finally What are the most important selection factors when selcting a Window manu other than: Spacer type, Gas type, NFRC rating?

Thanks for all the info! :D

Alan

vinyl
1 anlin

3. Milgard
4. Simonton
Toss the rest in the trash

Wood
1. Marvin
2. Weathershield
The others, wont take them

Prism grid is a stcker type of product applied to the inside of the glass panes. Is looks like v-groove glass and is a fraction of the cost. A cool concept. I know Certainteed in Sacramento has a new prism grid machine and it is pretty slick to see.

EarWax...Where are you located? Do you install windows or have you had them installed on your home? Will you contact me to discuss. If you email me @ quaizy1@aol.com, I'll email you back with my phone number.

Thanks!

Alan
