new construction vs replacement windows
I need some help. My windows are only 10 years old and are single-hung. They are drafty so I have decided to replace them. First my house is on a slab and has vinyl siding. So I have been told, I cannot go with replacement windows but rather new construction windows. Also, I have wide blinds and have been told they will not work with replacement windows, that I may have to get rid of them.
Second, I am a woman and feel like I am being taken with the installation and the costs. No one wants to explain the process to me, they just want to install the windows, get paid then leave. This is a big concern to me as I am retired and on a limited income.
Please help me with the glass thickness, low e and argon etc. and how to make the right decision.
