They are rated number one...for having high failure rates, durability isues, etc, like you said. it's the top of the list on the consumer reports sheet I carry that I got from consumer reports.org.

Strike that comment. Those were the musings of a man who had over indulged in Holloween cheer.....

Consumer Reports only tested like how many windows? I don't remember if Schuco, Gorell, Milgard, Polybau or that window HipCat sells(Vista) was even tested. If they were then I believe all the windows they actually did test would be on their do not buy list.

Consumer Reports only rates products that are available retail.

So, who's #1 then? I'm still trying to find replacement windows. I have a question though. Is vinyl really the way to go? What about the new aluminum windows? They're all low e2, dual pane and the whole 9 yards but they're aluminum. What about super spacers? I kind of like that because that means I won't bother with the possibility of my vinyl ever yellowing. Does anyone out there know where I can buy a decent window in southern California? Man I'm dying here, HELP Please.
