repairing aluminum windows

Hi all! I'm new to the window forum. We need to replace/repair our 25 yr old double pane bronze aluminum windows. My brain is in vinyl window overload. We have been quoted a price of $280 (uninstalled) each for Viewpoint series 6000 & $483 (uninstalled) each for Simonton Prism Platinum. Both windows are double hung. What are your thoughts on these 2 windows? From everything I read, in 20-25 years we may be having to replace windows again. Someone told us there is a process of defogging & resealing aluminum windows at $100 each window. Does anyone have any input about this? Thanks for any help you can provide!!

RE: repairing aluminum windows

The best way to repair the seal failures in your windows is to replace the insulated glass. If your aluminum windows have a thermal break then repair may be a more cost effective option then replacing the entire window.

The cheapest repair route would be to drill holes in the IGU and wash them out.

I have used this company before for a customer and they might have a similar technology out in your area.
