Alside Excalibur or Okna?
We are looking to put in 4-5 replacement windows. I have a local company coming out to give me a quote. I understand that they install the Alside Excalibur, and for a typical, double hung window, it will be $496/installed. (this is a discounted group rate, so I have the rate but I have not seen the window yet).
I started googling and found recommendations (here and on replacementwindows.com) recommending Okna Windows. I found an installer in my area and will have them come out to give me a quote this weekend. The Sales Guy told me that the Okna's are $600 - $800/window, depending on options.
I am also working with a contractor on my kitchen - who could install windows as well - but I think I would rather go with a more typical window installation company.
So, my questions are Excalibur or Okna (and why?) - and do these rates sound reasonable to you? (I will not be making a decision solely on price - the Okna and Excalibur are close enough on price, I am really looking to distinguish between the products).
Thanks for any / all help!
