aluminum window replace help advice crystal or champion (nyc-based not ohio)
 
I have to replace 8-10 windows - need aluminum for my bldg - i'm in a nyc pre-war high rise. All of the companies that come to measure and will be giving bids recommend either Champion or Crystal - both local NY-based manufacturers. I don't have a huge budget and these seem to be within my range. One company favors crystal and said he had lawsuit with Champion - another says he only uses Crystal for cheaper rental units! I've seen some bad reviews on this site for Crystal - but not sure if that's for the vinyl product. Any thoughts would be most appreciated. I have to replace immediately and I'm so confused. Don't know who to believe - these people who measured seem to have lots of integrity. Thanks in advance.

How does one come up with this observation?
"these people who measured seem to have lots of integrity."
Seems like wishful thinking.
