Vinyl window quote
I live in South Texas and will be replacing 12 windows of various shapes and sizes with vinyl (can't afford fiberglass). Anyway, I've narrowed it down to two well known brands. I'm not going to say which ones because I'm hoping to avoid any bias comments (don't laugh). I've examined both windows in detail and they seem well constructed using Lowe3 366 glass and have similar warranties. The one difference is that one brand has reinforced vinyl clad aluminum sashes and the other doesn't. This seems like a plus to me since that should help prevent any possible sagging in the hot Texas sun. However, their use of aluminum raises the U value to .32 which disqualifies them from the tax rebate. But that's not a big deal because they cost $1000 less than the pure vinyl ones making them cost neutral. In addition, I can still qualify for the tax rebate when I make other home improvements later on. Is my reasoning sound? Please discuss.
