new construction window comparison needed

#1 Post by Out SW » Sun Apr 19, 2015 5:35 pm

We live at 6500 feet in NM and are building a small house. I love the wood Pella windows but we want to keep cost down. That said, we still want good windows and decided to go with vinyl. Lots of sun, will be doing white trim but have looked at blog on Pella 350 series (a bit outdated) and wonder if they got any better with the product. Another alternative is MI energy core vs. MI HomeMaker 3 series. Anyone know about these and/or recommend someone out our way. We are doing our own building and will put windows in ourselves.

Type of units, number or units, and operator style?

What is your budget number you are trying to stay near? Are you specifying triple pane glass?
