 Solaris windows?

Author: Jeff K (---.proxy.aol.com)
Date:   

I'm shopping for replacement windows and am having a tremendously hard time trying to compare windows without having any of them available locally to see. This board is a great source of knowledge and frustration since 75% of the window brands discussed don't have dealer representation here in Vermont.

I've been in contact with Solaris out of Canada for a few days now and they have been very helpfull but I can't find any info about their windows here or elsewhere online. In an email they claim to be high end vinyl windows and then they go on to compare themselves to Anderson 200 (low end) and Jeld Wenn Summit which I see are rated lowly on this board. It's hard to evaluate the price they gave me without knowing what it really compares to.

Is anybody else interested in giving me a quote on windows drop shipped to me in Vermont? I'm interested in all Vinyl or Clad Wood casement windows. The issue is they need to be a dark gray/green color. Solaris offers colors as do the Milgards I've seen mentioned here (also not available in Vermont). I'm waiting for a local quote on Anderson 400's that are close in color. I also saw "Eagle" windows locally that offered a nice range of colors....anybody ever heard of them? Got an estimate on Marvins last year that seemed nice......$14,500 for 10 windows...OUCH. No thanks, I'd build a new house first.

Any and all help would be appreciated
