How to buy windows?


Do vendors generally allow you to install their windows yourself? I'm thinking of having a company to produce the windows by giving them the dimensions of the window and have them deliver it or ship it and then install it myself.

Or are there any good online retailers that let you do that?

Thanks!

Most of the manufacturers around here do, but almost all will limit or not warranty the product if done this way.

Check e-bay.

Think about what Slakker said, you can run into issues with your warranty if the windows are not installed correctly.
