Looking for reviews/experiences with SUN windows from Kentucky
Hi folks! I'm at the stage of researching windows for our new build. (SIPS, radiant heat, good windows, etc) The "green" movement is slow to catch on in my little neck of the Midwest, but I saw in the paper an advertisement for a real estate Open House for an ICF house. Out of curiosity, we went to it and I saw the the person who built it used Sun Windows. I put my hands on the windows, and didn't feel any coldness at all, so I was very impressed. (It was about 30 degrees F outside.) A quick Google search says they are a family owned company in Kentucky, which is close to me! Just wondered if anyone had any experiences with them- good or bad.
Looks like they only offer Aluminum exterior (it's supposedly very thick) with a wood interior for new construction. I also don't see a triple pane option, but maybe that's buried somewhere that I'm not seeing? What do you think of these values for the standard double hung window?
This is one of the entry level offerings: (U-->SHGC -->VLT)
Double Strength Glass, Grilles Between the Glass
And this is one of their "upgraded" options:
Double Strength Glass, Dual Low-E, Grilles Between the Glass
Both are double glazed with 1/2" spacer.
I'm extremely overwhelmed by the window thing at this point, so I just wanted some opinions. Thanks!!
