Earthwise - anyone have experience?

Hello, we are building a home and our gc gave us some options as far as windows and one he mentioned was Earthwise. I can't find much about them in regards to reviews. I do know they are a group of businesses that together developed this window brand. Anyone have any experience? We are building in CT, if that helps.
Thanks in advance.

They build and okay product but nothing remotely premium in comparison to what is out there.

I am guessing that vinyl is the choice you are going with?

There are some really nice vinyl options out there today and building the home from the ground up, I would suggest that you spend a bit more on the window schedule and have a tighter and more efficient home.

RE: Earthwise - anyone have experience?

Thank you windowsonwashington. Our contract has us going with Anderson 400 but the gc also mentioned Earthwise. I am guessing you would say go with Anderson, right?

RE: Earthwise - anyone have experience?

Why andersen 400? Its basically an average window with very poor/ high air leakage numbers. The earthwise is probably better designed than the andersen.
Do you have an okna, sunrise, or quantum 2 dealer in your area?

RE: Earthwise - anyone have experience?

It depends on which Earthwise product. They are a network of around a dozen manufacturers, and there are some that are better than others. I can say that the Innovations product by HomeGuard is a very nice option.

RE: Earthwise - anyone have experience?

"Innovations" is a very solid window and the best by far when it comes to Earthwise.
