Replacement window questions
I am so happy I found this site. Here is my situation. House is 10 years old and the Weathervane windows are crumbling before my eyes. Rot, leaks, breaking seals, you name it. Of course, they went bankrupt years ago so I have to start replacing a LOT of windows. I want some quality, so currently am considering Anderson or Marvin, although open to others. Have read a lot of horror stories regarding Pella so why bother.
Wood vs. Vinyl - I like the idea of low maintenance. A lot. Are there other advantages or disadvantages?
Reputable company in SE Michigan - please share if you have had a good or bad experience
My neighbor claims he purchased aluminum windows from Renewal by Anderson last year and he raved about them. I know nothing about them, but I did hear that the local Renewal franchise was just seized by Anderson due to questionable business practices. Hmmm.
I contacted one company to come out and discuss options. They carry most of the major brands, but I heard the scariest words I have ever heard from a contractor. "Don't worry, I will educate you". HELP!
Appreciate any help you folks can send my way, Any websites that may steer me in the right direction? Needless to say, I don't know much but I need to learn a lot fast. Thanks.
