I'm in Peoria,IL. How close is that to you? Dave is about 2 1/2 hrs away, depending on how fast he drives :)No luck finding installers on the web who use the window brands mentioned. Will have to go back to BBB for names, then let my fingers do the walking and make some phone calls.

2.5 hours is a good clip. I know we have done it before in some cases but with gas now...ouch.

Not sure if that went through to you Dave. If not let me know and we'll figure something out. Have been going to websites of installers here and haven't found any of the preferred brands as of yet.

I agree with Fighting Illini. I just had the Okna Environstars installed last year and love them. We have had a pretty decent winter in Norther NJ and they have kept the cold out all winter long. It is worth the money especially if you plan on staying there for the long term.
