new doors and windows craigslist- good idea or bad idea?
In an effort to salvage my proposed addition (estimates came back too migh), I was looking on craigslist for materials. There are quite a few never-installed Andersen and Pella doors for sale by people wh changed their minds. Does anyone know if the warranty starts at purchase or at install of these items? If I buy from a private seller, do I lose the warranty? Also, can I claim the tax credit if the door meet the published energy requirements?
