Help with new build window selection, Eastern North Carolina
Full disclosure: I'm using my wife's gardenweb login.
Lots of great information from this website guided us to quote a Restorations Window package (Ultra U VSS glass) for our custom build (22 window openings using about 45 windows). It includes casements, DH, and fixed. Also, we'll have to pick the windows up as a local dealer isn't available in our area. Builder wants to look at other options for budget savings and has mentioned Pella Proline, Anderson 200/400, and Marvin Integrity. No quotes yet, but wanted to get some opinions from this forum on a "next best" window with minimum U value of 0.33, minimum SQHC 0.28 and air infiltration less than 0.05. Will anything available in this part of the country beat the Sunrise Restoration?
Interestingly, minimal cost savings in the Sunrise or Vanguard windows vs Restorations.
