Replacement window for self install suggestions?
My father in law (who I trust has the experience) has offered to install new windows in our home to replace 1950s aluminum. We are also studding out the interior walls to add insulation. Any suggestions on the best and most economical (not buying something cheap but getting a good deal) way to directly purchase replacement windows? They will be mostly casement, with some sliders and some picture windows. We have been looking at vinyl products but could be pointed in a different direction also.
I had folks come out to do quotes on Simonton, SoftLite and Vanguard (before we decided to install ourselves). Still waiting to talk to them and see if they will let me order directly. A window installer that sells Alliance said he would hook me up with his distributor directly. But doesn't look like that is the best brand. We are in the central Midwest.
