Best thing I have done is Renewal by Anderson windows and a back sliding door. So much more sound proof as well as temperature control. And Quality windows bring 65% of their cost back in the sale of the house. 20 year warranty on the Argon gas inside the glass pack. No other window company does this.
Just got em before winter and my heating was night and day. I'm curious to see summer results.
A tiny tax break on them also but that was not a factor for me.
I hate to tell you but you over paid for those windows.
The windows are great, Andersen 100 series fibrex, seriously some very good windows.
But Renewal charges 2-3 times what the windows actually costs.
I sell windows, a lot of windows, a lady I used to work with came in the store one day and she came over to say hello, in our chat she mentioned she was having new windows installed of course I had to ask who was doing the work and what kind, and how much.
She said renewal and andersen and $55,000. I said please tell me you have not paid them, she said she was paying the the next day,
I said here let me quote you the same windows, connected her with a great contractor to install them, all total windows and install $18,000.
Like I said they are great windows, ordered them for my neighbor across the road from me, but renewal over charges folks by a lot.
