Re: Big project - quotes all over the place

The alliance hawthorne does NOT belong on the same list as the others. The other options are much better windows.

Re: Help with new windows

You need to be an authorized dealer in order to access vytex. Also, you could reach out to Windows on Washington. The owner is Eric and a very good guy. They have some very nice products. They do serve Annaplois and offer Okna.

Re: Patio door and basement windows questions

HomeSealed You explained that perfectly. You are right about high pressure sales guys that offer good products and charge high prices. Although they sometimes charge outrageous prices, they still usually do good work and in the end their prices usually wind up less than the family friend who uses an...

Re: Comparing ClimateGaurd, Simonton, and Window World 40

At first glance, the climateguard “Thermal Force” looks pretty decent. The other one’s dont look too good.
As far as virgin vinyl, you do want virgin vinyl over recycled vinyl. That said, even with virgin vinyl, there are different grades of it.

Re: Ideal Platinum 3000 and Majestic; which is better

Re: Sliding Patio Door with mini blinds recommendation?

If you get blinds between the glass, your only option is Hard coat LowE. You cannot get soft coat with blinds, it can be scratched.
