Replacements in GA- Heinzmann, GL ComfortSmart, Simonton 5500

#1 Post by karyatissa » Mon Jun 01, 2020 6:03 pm

A total of 20 windows that need to be replaced in a 1950's brick home. I do not plan to sell etc. for at least 20 years so I am hoping for some mid/higher end windows for a home that is in a very stable, desirable neighborhood. As a practical sort that doesn't plan to replace/renovate soon, I would prefer to spend a bit extra now for the investment if warranted.

I have gotten estimates for Simonton Reflections 5500, Great Lakes Comfort Smart, Restorations, and Heinzmann vinyl windows and Marvin Elevate composite windows.
While I like the German tilt/turn windows with a lifetime warrantee, the 33% increase in cost implies I can replace a problematic window and still have an overall lower cost compared with other vinyl windows. Similar story with the composite windows.
Are there others I need to consider? TIA!
