New Construction Simonton, Atrium, Silverline
We are set to frame a new home and need to make a decision regarding vinyl windows.
We've priced several and are narrowing it down to Simonton ProFinish, Atrium and Silverline 3900.
From other posts, it appears Simonton is the best of the three. I don't see much on Atrium and Silverline appears to be on the lower end.
We have a lot of openings (43 windows if we go by the blueprint). Simonton came in about 25% higher (8k vs. 6K). Are they worth the difference? The U and SHGC ratings are close.
A friend (contractor who is not doing this job for us) recommends Silverline, he just installed them in his home. But the posts on the board have me wondering.
Any advice, thoughts, opinions would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
