I've been reading the posts for other parts of the country, but which windows should I consider for central texas? Many of the brands I've read about do not seem to be available down here. I do like the positive posts for Simonton 5500 and 9800 and Don Young thermally broken aluminum windows. Which is more important for this climate : u-factor, shgc, air leakage or visisble transmission? I have not gotten any bids yet but is $400-600 per window in the ballpark? Also, am I crazy to think Randy in Houston has a better handle on the t exas market?
Thanks for the input
