While we’re getting started around here we’ll be posting in depth window reviews on a wide range of replacement windows. We’ll be covering a range of manufacturers and we’ll focus on concrete quantitative information rather than more qualitative fluff you’ll find on most sites.
We’ll also provide feedback on marketing and sales strategies used by some of these companies where we think it will be useful information.
It will probably take a little time to get to all of the window reviews, but here are the products we’ll be focusing on first in no particular order:
- American Craftsman by Ply Gem – Formerly by Andersen
- Andersen Windows
- BF Rich
- Great Lakes
- Harvey Building Products
- Infinity From Marvin
- Kensington Windows
- Kensington HPP
- Kolbe & Kolbe
- MI Windows
- MW Windows
- Northeast Building Products
- Ply Gem
- Renewal by Andersen
- Revere Building Products
- Silver Line Formerly by Andersen
- Thermal Industries
- ThermaStar by Pella from Lowes
- Thompson Creek
- Tri-State Window Factory
- Vista Window Co
- Vinyl Kraft
- West Window Corporation
- Window World
Many of these manufacturers offer several models so we’ll try to get to as many of them as we can. We hope you’ll find this info to be useful and please do let us know if there are any other models you’d like to see reviewed.
If you think we missed anything or didn’t give a particular product a fair shake just post a comment, be sure to mention the specific window reviews you’re concerned with and we’ll respond asap.
As you’re sorting through all of this it’s also important to remember that selecting great windows is only half the battle. Finding a reputable installation company is just as important to the overall success of the project. For some inside info on that front see our post on Angie’s List From a Contractor’s Perspective.
If you’re looking for a window company right now, the best advice we have is to join Angie’s List. For just a couple bucks you can get a 1-month membership and it’ll be worth much more than a caramel macchiato in the long run. You can find the best pricing for Angie’s List on the internet right here.
If you’re already a member of Angie’s List or if you’re just not going to join (despite my ringing endorsement), you can find our suggestions for the best companies in your area right here.
