No, nothing has been verified yet. When I next speak to the contractor I'll have mucho questions....I know these are tough economic times for contractors....but they're tough for the consumer too:-(

If they are custom made... well, etc. etc. there are a lot of variables here.


If they are the wood replacement windows,$570/unit would be closer to actual costs,less the markup.

Lets not confuse Energy Star and the tax credit. Not all Energy Star compliant windows and doors meet the criteria. What you need to look for is the U value and the Solar Heat Gain coefficient of .30 or lower.

Thanks for your imput fenestrationman (nice e-mail address:-)) I've decided to kill the project for the present time. I'm aware of the difference between energy star and tax credits and the requirements therein. I know it can get confusing but the stimulus package is interesting and there are lots of positives with it....I was hoping to take advantage of a tax credit this year and also, at the same time, put a few replacement windows in....but I have time as the tax credit advantage
is good through 2010....Dec. 31st.
