I am looking to replace my single pane windows that need to be reglazed, are impossible to open, and would otherwise need to be painted. Seems like a good time to replace them to me.
I have been looking at all the posts, and I get the impression that each installer has a preferred window. Many are no doubt presented due to the fact that they happen to be what they are selling. Many, I am sure, are honest-to-goodness opinions in terms of which window they feel is the "best".
I am looking for a lower-end window that will reasonbly hold up over time, provide better energy efficiency (not hard to do coming from the windows I currently have), and won't break the bank. We live in Atlanta and need to replace 26 windows.
Today, I was quoted $270 for a double-hung Jeld Wen Caradco. The window looks great, and has the profile (raised) grid inside the two panes, low-e coating, and argon filled. They are also wooden with aluminum clad and painted white on the inside.
A good choice?
Thanks in advance,
