Window World is a broker. They can sell you product at a decent cost, but if you are looking for consultation throughout the process then they may not be your best option.

They sell installed windows that cost less than I pay for a window as a contractor, that should tell you what kind of window you are getting. Can't speak for their installers.

I got some 'back room mis-measured' windows from them.
Certainly not the worst windows I've ever seen, but not top quality either.
But then again, I only paid about $40.00 each too..... sooooo.....

Take a serious look at Anderson--That is the brand I install and have had in my own home for 23 years.

Marvin makes a fine window---no doubt. Like you say--"a little expensive".

Marvins aluminum exterior makes the install just a bit more time consuming--I am always concerned with scratching the paint---extra care--extra time.
