 Re: Champion Windows

Alex.. for once we agree. You cannot buy Schuco windows direct from the factory or at Home Depot for those reasons. Home Depot or Sears use sub-contractors for all of their installations. It is solely profit based for them and void of product integrity and consumer-benefit concerns. Schuco works with exclusive dealerships only to prevent poor installations. They will address misrepresentation or handling on a corporate level. They are the largest window manufacturer in the world but new to North America (bigger than Anderson, Pella and Marvin combined.. for many reasons). Their window warranty is lifetime and non-pro-rated. Twenty-seven years without a TPS seal failure instead of filling metal glass spacers with a dessicant to hide it. For the record, I don't work for Schuco... and the most common problem for people buying windows is lack of up-to-date window information. Low-E/Argon is outdated 1982 technology. Would you buy a 1982 car for efficiency? PPG Intercept Low-E/Argon is 1983 and only fractionally better (as varified on their own website). As for the double hung window comparison.. Champion is a .30 and Schuco is a .21 (the Schuco fixed picture is a .15). That is an overall R-value difference of 1.4. That R-Value (resistance to heat) is the eqivalent of a single-pane window with a storm verses an open hole in the wall. Did you remove your doors completely to allow your guests to enter with ease?
