silverline windows 8500/8700 is good quality?


We got quote from local windows installation company. They sell silverline 8700/8500 windows. I'm not sure this window is good or not. The total 11 windows material cost is $2500. Installation cost is $2500. Total $5000. I feel they are really cheap windows compared to the other quotes. So a little bit curious about the window quality.

Anyone has experience with silverline windows 8500/8700?

Thanks a lot!

Lou

I use mostly Viwinco windows(east of Mississippi), mostly Northeast US, and I can't even buy a good DH, Lo-e/argon window for what they are charging. I know the Silverline name, but not well enough to offer judgement.

I’ve never heard of them but that doesn’t mean anything because lots of window companies localized to just a region.

If you can’t get the info you want here then get a customer list from the contractor and go talk to some of them and look at their installed windows. Get as many names as you can. They all can’t be his family.

More times than not, low bid is not the way to go.
