Replacement Windows

Looking to replace all of the old single pane aluminum windows with new. Looking at vinyl options for a multitude of reasons. Anyone especially in the south done this recently? What brand did you use? Happy with the results? Anyone specifically have any experience with Window Mart or Wincore?

We bought a foreclosure 6 years ago and replaced all the windows with Andersen 100 series. I like that I could custom order them with nailing fins so I could do a full tear out installation with new PVC trim for low maintenance exterior. Very happy with the results, *NO WOOD.
Since you're going from single pane to IG, you'll notice a big difference in your energy costs and comfort. What most people tell me after I've installed them is that they don't hear as much outside noise with the new windows.
I just put 16 of these Andersen 100 windows in my folks house and they love them. Full tear out - you remove the whole window down to the rough opening of your house. I do full tear out because I can remove all the old window technology, install a quality energy efficient window correctly with foam insulation to gain the most long term efficiency. Use PVC brickmould or PVC trim to complete the exterior. Then to satisfy my House OCD I refinish all interior casings for a freshy-fresh upgrade.

When we bought this place - We promised that we would not skimp. Glad we didn't, one Andersen awning casement broke last month. I had a new window pane in less than 2 weeks - NO CHARGE, NO QUESTIONS ASKED.

I did Anderson 80 series I think (Home depot mid grade level)

Very happy with the windows. Did 14 in my house after we moved in and glad I did. Worth the money and they do a great job keeping the noise out.

Covi is pretty knowledgeable and helped me out a few years ago. I think he sells Marvin windows...

Can't get hurt with a Marvin either. Good product.

While Marvin is an excellent product their cost is out of the budget not just for my wallet but for the house itself.. Wood and Wood/Fiberglass is not justifiable. The neighborhood has nice homes but around here unless you are in a very high end house the finish level is that of aluminum or vinyl.

Not sure if they have Milgard windows where you live. We have them in both of our homes. They are reasonably priced and have a lifetime warranty to the original owner. We have had a few replaced under warranty.
