Lowe's windows vs. window company?
I'm wondering if anyone can compare for me these two options: 1)buying windows from somewhere like Lowe's and hiring someone to install or 2)buying windows & installation from a window/siding company. What're the quality and cost comparisons? Although we have wood windows now, we'd most likely do vinyl for their efficiency. We need a brand that has brown or green exteriors as an option. Thanks!
