 Opinions on these windows?

Author: derek (

Hi all,

I really do not know much about windows so I was hoping to get some opinions before I buy. The only reaon I want to replace is because I want my house to be warmer. I met with a company in NY - Long Island named tri-state window factory

I was impressed by the window, it was triple pane and according to the website has the best nfrc rating.

for 16 windows plus a large window that is

we were quoted 10,000. They install themselves and do not use subcontracters.

I then found a place selling a window from a brand called Ideal. It was a double pane window and the details were as follows.

fully installed for $289 per window:
full capping in any color
full caulking
new stop molding
7/8 insulated double thermal glass
fully welded with double locks
energy star titanium low e glass, argon gas, foam filled.

Any thoughts?
