Does anyone have any good advice or a good link to assist me with my choice on repacement windows. I have a 30 year old home with about 28 double hung windows that need to be replaced. My preference is vinyl and something thats very maintenance free. HELP! This is very overwhelming.

I agree, "there is nothing like a house full of quality windows." I just did mine this Feb.

However, there is where I start to disagree.

It has been my experance that the "Big Box" stores carry the least expensive products they can.

The prices are not relitive to the type of windows a "quality" replacement company may provide.

Just as with any major purchase, please do your homework, check U values, SHGC numbers, and most importantly the reputation of the company installing the windows, and that of the company who makes them.

Lastly, make sure the company doing the work has all the correct insurance, and check their references.

This is not a easy choice, but once you have it done, you should be much more happy with your house.

good Luck!!

PS. with that being said, I installed the best window I know, which you can see @

Anyone hear of the company Castle the window people. The ad says they are one of America's Top window companies.

They seem to have a good product and it has a lifetime warranty on everything.

Yes, I am aware of this. My friend said that Modern Glass Design Company provides the best of these services from last 15 years in the US.
