Newpro is good window but overpriced.
Champion is your basic cookie cutter window- for the price they normally sell, you can do better.
I used to install Thermal Industries years ago and am not crazy about their frames. They seemed too flimsy. They have lots of options available to the consumer, but in my opinion putting any of these options in a weak frame makes no sense.
In fairness to them, I have not seen one of their windows in a couple of years, but I have not heard of them making any major changes to it.
I would suggest Soft-Lite, Simonton or Shuco.
Unfortunately the Schuco dealer you would have to deal with is unethical and I would stay away.

The Thermal Industries 530 in triple pane is a very good window with a
U value of 0.21.The frame is fully welded.I have used this window for
7 years very few problems.Thermal INDUSTRIES has local service here
in mass. you cannot go wrong with the 530.

GOOD LUCK

Guest,
Out of curiosity, is the 530 the same thing as their older DGT 53?
Are they using costant force balances?
Have they added any foam spacers yet or do they still only offer intercept?
Do they still offer the Dreamwood?
I appreciate your help- I am always interested in keeping educated with other windows in my market.
