Hello, everyone!
This may be the more appropriate place to post. I am looking at the following window:

Sugarcreek 300-series w/ComforTech DLA
double strength glass available
Low e/Argon
double glazed
Super Spacer

I was quoted $2000 for 2 large double-hung and 2 2-lite sliders (on very large, one medium-sized), grids. Compared to other estimates I have had, this is good price-wise, but how are these windows considered? Does anyone have experience with them? Do you recommend the double-strength glass?

Sugarcreek are owned by Prescion, a pretty large Door company. They are low-medium grade windows. Which other windows did you get quotes on?

Low-medium grade? Hmmm... I started looking at these because they were highly recommended to me. Why do you consider them low-med?

The other quotes I have received are for Soft-Lite Imperial LS ($2500) and Alside Excalibur ($2200). I also received a quote from a local company that manufactures its own windows.

Either of the two competitive windows are better choices. Many companies say they manufacture thier own. Ask to see thier plant before you believe them. It's often a ploy to make themselves seem bigger.

Good luck!!

The 300 series is Sugarceek's best vinyl window. Standard glazing is with Super Spacer. We have a sample in our showroom. Pretty nice product, but pricey. I've never sold or installed them. The tilt latches and the balances seem a little goofy from the other high points of the design and quality of the window. I would tend to migrate towards the Imperial LS unless the budget was real tight, then the Sugarceek . I've never been real impressed with the Alside products.
