Our local supplier carries these two brands. We are getting vinyl. The Milgard will be about $500 more in price. But I have never heard of Alpine and I have heard Milgard is good. Any thoughts???

By the way, that is only a total of $500 more for new construction, all the windows house

I would like to read what has been written but I haven't figured out how. There is a letter comparing Milgard and Alpine windows, but I can only see the first sentences.

I am also looking at Jeld Wen. All vinyl.

Also, does anyone know if tan color is the same for all three?

Jeld Wen excludes warranty for condensation. Do the others?

Greetings:

Milgard is the best vinyl window on the market. Not only because of the quality of their window, but their warranty and service as well. To pay $500 more for that peace of mind is well worth it. If you think about it, windows go into the holes in our otherwise complete walls of our homes. Yet everyone seems to want to "save money" in this area. I would get the best windows for the holes in my walls and a good company behind them. As far as condensation warranties, no company will warranty against condensation as this is a natural occuance based on one of two factors, (A) the level of humidity inside your home or (B) the difference in air temperature from outside and inside in relation to the dew point.

I hope this helps.
