replacement windows in Phoenix
I live in extreme heat, sun and wind storms. I need relatively inexpensive replacement vinyl windows that will not warp or fade and I have been trying to purchase such a thing for nearly a year!
I understand that warranties for cheap windows are usually kind of a scam, correct? However,I hope to not stay in the house more than a couple years. On the other hand, I refuse to install total crap and set myself up for potential headaches. (It's bad enough that these things are made of petroleum and never decompose, but are just manufactured to deteriorate and loose function). Can anyone give me some good advice on brands?
I had an attractive quote for Alside, but have found a lot of negative feedback about them online. The same company installs Armstrong and Jeldwen. Another company we've talked to sells Weathershield and Peachtree. Another installer gave me a decent quote for Cascade, but I can't find much information about any of these online. I have heard good things about Milgard, Simonton and Andersen. Other suggestions? The problem is that even if these companies make quality windows and I decide I can afford them, our climatic conditions are exceptional.
I could really use some professional advice or anecdotes from people in the Southwest who have had reliable windows installed for a long period of time.
