Windows Replacement Recommendations in Philadelphia area

#1 Post by PhillyWally »

Hi all,

Looking for recommendations on Windows Brands for replacing 20+ Vinyl windows in Philadelphia suburbs. I am retired and don't plan to live in this house for more than 6-8 years, so price would be a key factor for me.

I have got quotes from Sunrise, Home Depot (Simonton 6100 series(, Lowe's (Pella) and Marvellite thus far. I am looking for recommendations for windows in the mid price range.

Okna, Soft-Lite, Polaris Thermalweld seem to be brands that are mentioned in this forum. I would like to get recommendations on brands that are readily available in PA, NJ area and why? Thanks

I would skip big Orange and the other brands in the first list.

Several good window contractors on this forum that cover the Philly area.

Thanks. You suggested skipping Home depot and others, however Simonton, Pella and Sunrise are all rated high by Consumer Reports and also many consumer websites.

Any other brands you recommend?
