Both bottom line contractor grade windows.
Look into Wincor or Simonton windows.
Keep in mind most window companys carry differant grades of windows, your going to get what you pay for.

What they said. Where are you located?? I have had a long relationship with Viwinco, quality product with excellent customer service, if needed which is rare. East if Miss, and generally in northeast, home base is southeast Pa.

Agreed, neither. Look for a dealer or local supply house that will sell to you for DIY. HiMark, Softlite, and Sunrise are excellent vinyl choices. PlyGem and Simonton are a couple decent mid-range options that are widely available.
