Simonton 5500 patio door vs Pella/Andersen
We will be getting a new 6ft patio door as part of a remodel. The contractor is recommending Pella Proline, as they have had very good experiences with this door, as well as good customer service from their local dealer. I have read just the opposite on Pella, pretty much all over the internet on different forums.
I'm wondering whether I should choose a different door. I've read good reviews on the Simonton 5500, which would save me around $550 vs. Proline.
Andersen 200 series would only save $100, while the 400 series would cost around $500 more.
Any thoughts on these doors? Would like something that isn't drafty, as we live in Wisconsin, but this particular door will not be used much to enter or exit the house.
