    Hey Window Dog!

    I got a quote for 13 PGT 5500 windows. 3 picture windows, 1 twin single hung, and rest are single hung for just under $20k installed.

    How does this sound up front? I know now is a strange time to be buying any type of building materials.

      Hi JW, are they impact windows? For regular windows that seems a little pricy to me. Impact windows can be a bit more expensive so that might be more reasonable. There have been a lot of complaints from folks here about PGT windows over the last couple years. It’s always hard to tell from this side of the screen if that’s a manufacturing issue or installation or just a disgruntled customer, but something to be aware of.

        There are way too many complaint posts to be just “disgruntled customer” based. PGT is also buying up other South Florida hurricane resistant window companies. What will happen to the quality of their products over time?

          You’re right that there are a lot of them, that’s why I was bringing it up. It’s hard to say what will happen down the road. You’d think the customer complaints to impact their business to the point that they’d fix it, but that’s sometimes easier said than done for a building products company.
