Looking for New Vinyl Windows-Need Advice


Can anyone give me advice on what to look for as far as new home vinyl windows? There are soo many out there with a multitude of styles, prices, brands etc. Of course all of the box stores carry their own brands as well. Are they just as good as the Andersen, Champion, Thermal King etc? Are they all made by a few mfg's under different names? Brands to stay away from? I live in a climate that gets very hot in the summer and very cold in the winter so this needs to be taken into account. Please help educate me and help me narrow down my choices so I don't totally blow my money. Thanks!

If you're close to Columbus, OH. I would suggest giving Improve it a call. I went through them and I'm very satisfied with the product and the service. They also offer a lifetime free in home replacement on the glass ,the frame, and the screens, as long as you get them in once a year to inspect them.

After looking at several, I opted for windows from Milgard - value of moderate price and good quality.
