We checked all vinyls out and Certainteed and Ellison we got from Astro Alum were better rated we had used the ellison replacement, certainteed New construction and geeting them from the local alum place was a lot easier
we don't get good service at all from Lowe's or home depo the ones here the people don't want to work can't get any answers
Make sure who ever install your windows caulks and insulates. we did moms & dads and
they are great no air infiltration no condensation on windows inside We had simonton vinyl in our new house and they are horrible and we had the builder back and no insulation they are better but still gettin a lot of air infiltration so to avoid headache
make sure they are installed proper good luck clax

if you are going to fill a new home with windows buy the best you can afford do not go cheap you will regret it later. A good window like certainteed will not cost you much more than a second rate home depot window, and it will save you tons is future repairs and your gas bill. check out certainteed for sure they are among the best and they have loads of stylings and configurations www.certainteed.com

Greetings,

Be very carefull!

You mentioned "All Single Hungs", You may not be able to meet the egress requirements and end up owning a lot of useless windows.

Bedrooms require 5.7 sq feet of clear opening area, That makes for a pretty big single hung.

I agree with the rest and say, stay away from cheap lumber yard windows.

Good luck,
Jason
