need window help...
Hello, I need 6 new windows in a 15 year old house. many have started to get hazy or condensation in them.
Baby on the way and I know you typically get what you pay for but money is really tight. I also know the installation is key, a very expensive high quality window poorly installed is probably no better if not worse then a mid grade window installed properly.
I had WW and a big box come out and measure and give me estimates.
WW was 2566.00 for 6 - "4000" series windows
HD was 3414.00 for 6 - "6100" series windows
I almost had a company call Castle Windows come out to give estimate but the reviews on line scared me to death. I know all companies will have some install goes a little off but they seemed to have a lot.
I realized i do not even know enough to make sure the installer does the job right if i watch the install. i have heard horror stories of windows only being held in by caulk? no screws or nails etc.. scares me.
Should replacement windows be installed from side house or outside? Vinyl siding house. i just never did or even helped with windows so could some one give me a primer.
a little guidance or help would be appreciated.
