Ideal windows or MI windows

#1 Post by bchawaga » Fri Nov 20, 2009 12:27 pm

I am replacing 4 double-hung windows and have recieved a couple quotes.

MI windows (Installer--Window Depot USA) U-Factor--0.30
Ideal windows (Installer--Window Wholesalers) U-Factor--0.28

Can anyone tell me about the quality of these windows as well as the installers.

Thank you for your help!!

From what I've read on this forum I would tend to agree. Can you tell me about Harvey Classic or Streamline windows? Are they a step up? I've read better things about Harvey windows than the others I've mentioned.

Thanks!

if you read some posts on this board and looked at a few of the things the Pro's have stated,you will KNOW that a good window will cost at least 500 per opening for a double pane. but here you are trying to get a Pro to agree that a window for 325 per opening is quality. WHY are you wasting your breath? you know the answer already.

Gee thanks for your concern but, luckily, I'm a very quick typer and didn't have to waste any breathes.

Of the two - only -

Ideal is the best choice by far.
