'Interstate' Replacement Windows?

Has anyone heard of Interstate Windows? Apart from the fact that they seem to be out of P.A., I can't find any discussion about them on the internet. We've been pricing some expensive replacement windows, and along came a quote from one company with Interstate (for their CompositeWood collection - composite wood)They're 1/2 the price installed of the better windows we've researched. They are Energy Star qualified and NFRC rated very well, so why can't I find a darn thing about them?

We had 10 Interstate Windows installed 2 years ago this fall. We love them! I also could not find alot of information on them. Had prices for Andersen and Simonton, and although relatively comparable, we chose Insterstae b/c of the NFRC ratings and the super-spacer. We have a few more windows to replace as well and will use Interstate. Our old windows were/are typical builders grade and in the winters with a portable humidifier (on low) and very cold nights, we would have frost on the windows. No more on those rooms, but occasionally on the two rooms we have not replaced yet. I also liked the brickmould on the outside. It gives the window a very nice look.

I do have to say that our installer was very good too. He used the sprayfoam to seal any gaps b/c we get high wind over the winters. Such a huge improvement!

GL!

I have had a sample sitting in my office for a year now. Every customer I showed it to did not care for the thick frame and odd upper rail. It seems like a decent product but it is a different look. I think the Okna has a better design. It should be in the same price range and has a similar construction.

I researched them, and the energy ratings are better than an Andersen composite window. The frame is a little thicker, but a real wood window does not have a thin frame. It dependns on your taste. If you are looking for very thin frame, you may want to consider casements. I see a mixture of them sometimes...casement and double hung...depends on how your house is set up. They are great windows!!!! Love Them

Good Luck!
