I've never heard of them, and I've been around the construction industry since day one, look into they make great windows and are actually reasonable priced, they can be found at a local wholesale supply store you probably wont find them retail.

Well, my contractor installs all Certainteed products (siding, shingles) and has decided for whatever reasons to standardize on Reynolds windows instead. Hopefully that's a sign of good experience with those windows and not from him hearing a great sales pitch from the local dealer. =)

yeah I see what you mean, hopefully whatever decision you make turns out to be the right one and you arent the guinea pig on the "standarization" process of reynolds windows. make sure you take a look at the windows first and see if they feel cheap. I have seen some that could be used for a tree house and nothing more they just have that cheap feeling. Good luck

I have sold and installed both the Certainteed and the Alside replacement windows.

Given the choise between the two, I would use the Certainteed vinyl replacement windows. They have a better ballance system.

I installed vinyl replacement windows in my new home made by Harvey Industries. They are located in New England so, they might not available to you.

Good luck,

I have to agree with Bill. I have seen most of the products offered from the major vinyl window companys over the years, and Alside not only has a wide offering of great windows, but they have been around for a while and do stand behind their product.

I had (28) Reynolds vinyl replacement windows installed in my house (9) years ago. Went with low E glass. They are absolutely awesome. Work perfectly, easy to clean, lowered energy cost significantly. Like them so much I am here looking for an installer to put them in the house in the country I just bought. Ken

Buyer Beware. We had 10 installed about 10 years ago. 20 YR full replacement warranty, seals going bad 2 so far, but where is Reynolds! Not in North Carolina as warranty states. Sent the letter, will hope for the best. Will update.
