We've been quoted about eight Accuweld vinyl windows that sound super, but cost over 400 bucks each installed. The installer is local in Tennessee and is backed up by Sams Club ******* ).

Does the price sound in-line? How about quality?

I am going with the Certainteed Bryn Mawr II replacement window.

You can get some good unbiased info by going to your local library and getting the Oct 2000 issue of Consumer Reports, they did a testing on windows.

Greetings,

I noticed that my local Sam's Club has a booth set up to sell windows as well as one for cell phones and calling plans.

I have come to the conclusion that this is not a wholesale club at all. (look at the price of movies for example.)

If you read the labels and do the math, you see that the paper products are not either.

I do buy some items there because I live near one.

Tires, batteries, and OJ are pretty good.

Windows on the other hand... I don't think so. What are you going to do five years from now when you need to get service work done and the booths not there?

I think this is like alot of the big box stores and department stores that sub out the work and you pay more because they are doing the advertizing as part of the deal.

Certainteed, (Quality made certain, satisfaction guaranteed),is a good window!

Just my thoughts.
Good luck,
Jason
