I live in north Orange County within 2 miles of the coast and have a 30 year old condo in need of replacement sliding windows and a sliding door replacement. What brands, quality would you suggest? What details I need to watch for and what can I do to become an informed consumer.
I am tired of the road noise and conduction of cold from our old windows of the 70's, not to mention the heating bills during our cold snaps!
A close friend has suggested Ply Gem but not a specific "model" or "line". My brother replaced his windows in the past few years with Certainteed and has been very satisfied. I understand Ply Gem bought Certainteed out several years ago.
Thank you for your time and suggestions.
