  1. I’ve embarked on the Window buying journey in the Raleigh area. I’ve gotten two quotes, one of whom (LEI) tried the model home scheme. I didn’t bite, and I’d actually arrived days later at a price I was happy with (in comparison to the other quote I got – which did not use high pressure tactics but was selling windows with a not as good R-value).

    I’ve used this site to discover that the Revelation windows sold by LEI are in fact Alside Ultramaxx windows and they are run of the mill windows. (The extent to which the R-value was superior to the second quote had me thinking they were the best ever.) Given that there is less glass surface area on these (found from the review here) , I think I’ll opt for an additional quote. I’ll update with more info as I progress, though right now I’m in the “trying to find the best choice” phase.

    Note: This site is awesome and appreciated. My only suggestion for improvement would be to make it easier to find the best windows at various price points. Right now the only mechanism (I’m aware of) would be to read through the extensive reviews of each (without knowing in advance which price point I’d be reviewing). Maybe a star rating or a ordered list of suggestions for each price point? I do value the extent to which this site tries to be unbiased, but that’s actually working me here as I try to search for which direction I should go.

    1. Hi Brian, glad to hear you’re enjoying the site and we appreciate the feedback. It might get a little tricky as the cost difference between windows typically has more to do with the options chosen and the company offering them than it does with the actual cost of the windows themselves. For example, those Alside windows get good ratings with upgraded glass options, but most windows have upgraded glass options available. The company quoting them may or may not have included specific options and that part can be difficult for folks to sort through.

      We may be expanding our company to Raleigh in the near future, but we’ll probably be too late for you. Good luck out there and feel free to pass on any additional feedback!

  2. Great site!! I just started looking through it. My story so far:

    I just received a quote from LEI. They went from $15402 for 16 windows down to $11652. Fourteen are double hung standard sized windows, one is a big picture window, about 5′ by 5′, and one window is a big 10′ by 5′. The sales person says that I should “think of that big window as 3 windows”. He calls them Revelation Mezzo, Triple Pane, Argon filled with some special Low-E coating that lets in more light?? He says that standard Low-E will “bubble off” in time. I’m pretty sure they are actually Alside. That comes out to 728.25 per window (assuming 16 windows) or 647.3 per window if we think of it as 18 windows. All numbers are after tax. I have 3 days to cancel sale, I think I am leaning towards cancellation right now. What are your thoughts @thewindowdog?

    1. Hi Nic, are you in the Raleigh/Durham area? We may be able to help out with specifics. Let me know and we’ll be happy to help if we can. In my experience those guys don’t tend to have the best prices around. Saying that other companies will use low-e glass that bubbles off is a red flag. Certainly not true. We have some new YouTube videos in the works about funny window sales claims. That one might make the list.

      1. Yup, I live in Raleigh. I would appreciate your help. I have sent my info to Window Universe, the company suggested by you guys on this site. Waiting to hear back from them, thanks for the reply!

        1. Got it, I see your request. Will send you an email with additional info, might not be able to get it to you until tomorrow.

  3. Which companies are near Asheville? We’re looking to replace windows and doors and are having a rough time finding a company, other than the Pella or Renew by Anderson.

    1. Hi Eric, I don’t know any great window companies near Asheville to recommend. If you find someone great let us know. I’m sure you’re not the only one looking.

  4. I just got quote from Pella, Impervia windows for $1450 installed each, which is alot higher than what I’ve read online. Should I pursue or try Anderson, Marvin? Very difficult business, wish it were more transparent, starting to feel like dealing with used car dealers with some of the salespeople.

    1. I wouldn’t go with Pella or Andersen or Marvin. What’s your zip code? We might be able to recommend a much better option.

    2. We just had Renewal By Andersen come to our home and quoted windows only after two separate sales visits lasting over two hours each. Quote was $33,000 for 11 windows.

      They would not give me the numbers until we let him come back for that second visit even after I said after the first visit, “get me the quote and then we’ll decide if you can come back again.” During the first visit he measured, I told him what color I wanted, and the number of windows. Still, they said he had to show me the samples before giving me the cost.

      Look, Renewal By Andersen only offers their patented Fibrex, double hung- yet, they said he had to come out again to show me samples before getting me the price. Now I know why….. When he came the second time, he spent a disproportionate amount of time (2 hours) going over in detail- vinyl, wood, aluminum etc. and asking us periodically,”now, how does that look? Would you put this in your home?” I asked him to just give me the cost for what THEY offer for OUR windows and he said, “Well I could, but you would have no way of knowing what you are getting unless I show you what it compares to.”

      And to top it off when he finally gave us the numbers (at the end off listening to 2 hours of gobble-dee-gook) I was exhausted. He showed us a 20% discount he said he got special permission to extend (it had ended the day before), plus a 5% sales cost savings program that only applied if we bought today. I was so tired I just wanted him out of my house!!

      I knew his whole sales pitch was leading up to a disgustingly high price, but I didn’t think it would be THAT high! Of course we wanted to shop around more and get more quotes from other companies and of course he wanted to object and he wanted to know which companies. etc.

      He even went so far as to tell us what the OTHER companies would do in terms of the warranty and if we had a problem, how tough it would be to get any resolution. How does he know that since we wouldn’t tell him which companies we were considering?? He still in the end wouldn’t get me the numbers in writing, he just wanted to show it to me on his tablet. I made him snap a picture of it and email to me.

      He might have earned a sale on the spot if he had spent his time showing me THEIR product/warranty/install skills, etc. specific to THEIR company rather than talking so much about the OTHER guys.

      We are shopping around. I don’t expect the 5% discount to apply if we call him back because he said he would have to get “special permission, etc.”. I don’t really care. This probably isn’t the company for us. We don’t really operate this way at all.
