I am looking for replacement windows for my 10 yr old house. I have a few windows where the seals are broken and there is condensation between the glass. I received an estimate for the 'Preservation' window from a local window company that has A+ ratings with the BBB. Are the Preservation windows a good window for the OK area? I have read that Preservation windows are also know as Alside windows, not sure why the different name.
I am looking at the white vinyl double hung windows with grids, E2 and argon gas. These are not the top of the line but next to the top. I have 15 windows to replace and several of them are approx. 36 width by 72 height. I received an estimate of $9,400, is that too much? They started out at $9,900 and told me that $9,400 is the best they can do. They also said vinyl is going up so the window prices will be going up this spring, does anyone know if that is a selling tactic or the truth?
Another company suggested Simonton windows and the cost would be approx. $5,000 but this company is not as reliable and employees are not trained window installers.
I have Sears coming out tomorrow to give me an estimate.
I'm so confused and don't want to pay too much for windows. Can anyone give this Okie some advice?
Thank you so much.
