Hi everyone, first post here.
I'm looking for replacement vinyl windows for our house in the NW suburbs of Chicago. We're looking for something of decent quality that won't break the bank because we plan to sell the house in the next couple of years and the windows are just one of many projects we need to accomplish before we can do that.
Anyway, I've gotten quotes from Pella (I know, they're not good), Feldco, Power Home Remodeling and a local contractor who uses Alside Excalibur (I know, also not great).
After reading through some threads here I was lead to believe that Soft-Lite windows are good. First, is this a correct assessment?
We got a quote from a reputable local contractor for both Soft-Lite Imperial LS and Soft-Lite Barrington. Thoughts on these two lines?
The quote is for 17 double hungs of various sizes and 1 awning with obscured glass. The Imperial LS came in at $10,673 ($592.94 avg per window) and the Barrington came in at $9,551 ($530.61 avg per window).
For comparison's sake, Pella came in at around $13K, Feldco was $11.8K, Power was really expensive at like $18K and the local contractor pushing Alside was super cheap at like $7.5K.
Thoughts and help appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
