The Elite comes standard with the Ashland integrated tilt plungers built into the locks. The Advantage has more traditional top mounted sweep locks. The Element is more of the entry series. All three series have the same frame and sash extrusions. We will see how the QC is over time and if the manufacturer keeps the factory up to date with the latest equipment.

I really appreciate your input. I have done a ton of research, asked questions, got referrals, used the window coeffiecient website, etc. I really have alot of respect for the jobs that you guys do. This has been quite an education and even now, I am still a novice. Let's hope they do a good installation and capping. :mrgreen:
Hey Jzone,
How are the windows so far? I am looking at the same Elite line. How many did you get installed and how much did you pay? Thanks!
