Window Options

We're replacing some of the old wood casement windows in our 1982 built home. The company doing our re-siding and shingle job also deal the two windown companies. Has anyone dealt with or have Caradon (CWD) or All Weather Windows? Caradon has been in business since 1958, All Weather since 1978.
Opinions would be great. Thanks!

Are you doing a complete window installation, or replacement windows. Replacements fit into the existing window frame. Considerable less expensive, but you lose some glass area. Total replacement of the frame involves more labor, and thus is more expensive.

Not familiar with either company, where are you located?? Those companies seem to have long track records, but i can't say what their quality is like. For complete window replacement, consider Andersen 400 series, quality product and the company stands behind them.
