Vinyl replacement windows

I am getting quotes for vinyl replacement windows. I have looked at two window companies and have two more window people coming. I want a good Vinyl window. I have looked at a company called Midway and really like them. I also looked at Pella too, Midway seemed a little sturdier than the Pella. Does anyone know anything about Midway Windows & Doors? I would appreciate any input on good vinyl windows for a Midwest home.

Pella vinyl windows are junk. I'm not familiar with Midway. I'd get at least 2 more estimates before deciding.

I have narrowed my vinyl choice down to the following: Alside Sheffield, Midway (Alliance), Simonton and Soft-Lite Imperial LS. Any feedback on quality of these windows would be appreciated.

I'd toss out the Sheffield. Softlite and Simonton are probably the 2 best of that grouping depending on what model Simonton you are looking at.

+1

Soft-Lite and Simonton are two of the best.

Gorell, Sunrise, and Okna are the last 3 on my short list.

SKYDAWGGY--Which Simonton should I put in? I want a good solid window. I appreciate your help, I never thought there were so many window companies!!!!!!!

My first choice would be the Prism Platinum, followed by the Reflections 5500. Basically the same window but the Platinum comes with double strength glass and a 25 year glass breakage as standard. The Reflections comes standard with single strength glass. If you upgrade it to double strength, the glass warranty is only 3 years.

If you're on a very tight budget, you should look at the Prism Bronze or the Reflections 5500. Just make sure you get the right glass for your area.

I also recently started carrying the PGT Spectraguard. I like them very much too. If they are available to you, I'd check them out.

Sorry I miss typed. If you are on a tight budget look at the Reflections 5050.

I love my Simonton 5500 Reflections, mainly because my DW likes them and they were far from being budget breakers.
