vinyl windows

I am having a new house built and my building plans call for andersen windows. I would like vinyl windows instead of the wood andersens. What window manufactures are comparable in cost and quality to andersens. We have been budgeted for andersens. The andersen windows on our plans are the 200 series.

RE: vinyl windows

How much have you budgeted for windows and how many do you have?

RE: vinyl windows

Our contract with the builder was for the the house to be built per plans. The plans list andersen windows. We need 6 windows, we were able to recycle 6 windows from original home.

RE: vinyl windows

I'm asking how much you have budgeted because you asked for recommendations on similar quality and price in vinyl windows. Vinyl windows range from approx. $189 up to approx $850.

RE: vinyl windows

Post of up specs and budget for the windows and the pros on the board can give you some material recommendations.

RE: vinyl windows

The windows on the building plans are as follows:

wdh 3046 #6
a21 #2
a31 #3
fw66068 r/l #1
wdh210210 #1

All of the windows are energy star (low e double pane)

I am not sure what the contractor had budgeted for windows. Our building contract states that he will build house per plans, thus he will provide the above windows unless we request a change. We are able to make changes to these plans although we pay an upcharge. Thanks for the help.
