Deciding on Windows
We decided recently that we wanted to replace windows. It started with , we have to replace patio doors and then went on to windows. We moved from Chicago, but our current home in Marietta,GA feels lot colder than the one we have in Chicago, at the same indoor temperature. So figured we blame the huge, oversized windows and patio doors. The current ones we have are made by peachtree doors, and are mostly sliding, and was installed I think in 1986.
After reading some of the forums here, I decided to get quotes for Sunrise, SOft-lite, and a couple other vendors my realtor suggested.
We have a total of 18 oversized windows (if they did DH, they said they will have to put 2 windows for most of them, as they are more than 48 inches in length). 2 patio doors.
For Slocomb windows + Alside patio doors I got a quote of about 11500$
When I showed the Slocomb product that I was promised to other vendors, they said a U of .22 seems like a scam.
For Vytex-Georgetown I have got a quote of about 11700$ - offerred upgrade of 3 E coating, and a U of .26
I am in the process of getting quotes for Sunrise and Soft-lite, will update the forum as I get all of them by Monday.
Any thoughts on what might be better product. Also if you have previously used a vendor in Marietta/Atlanta area and have found them to be good, please do not hesitate to suggest
