Since hurricane Sandy we have been having water leaking from the windows in several rooms, Whenever it rains. Looking to get the windows replaced.
Have researched a bit, and noticed a wide range in price from $1500 a window to $400 a window. I know that I prefer full replacement vs. an insert window.
Has anyone done this., and any recommendations.
I used to sell replacement windows for Pella. Ask me anything I'm happy to help.
By the way, this is a great time of year to replace windows. It is slow as shit for those guys so you'll be able to swing a great deal because they want some sales.

Where do you live?
Pella is expensive as balls. Quoted us 20K for our doors + windows in a one story ranch. No chance I'm paying that, so we are looking around for someplace more affordable.
So far got a quote from Renewal by Andersen. Pretty expensive, but I do like the full replacement aspect, not a fan of the insert. What are your thoughts on fibrex vs vinyl.
I've never heard of any of these OS's, try switching to Linux, its free.

agree with gunner...I actually went with Thompson Creek. I cannot remember what they originally quoted me, but when it was all said and done, and I agreed, it was about 25-30% of original cost.
All the window companies were more than willing to negotiate.

I thought I posted another reply, but I guess not.
I always preferred the fiberglass window to vinyl, but that is due to the fact that Pella's vinyl product is total crap. They have been a wood window company for decades, and are the best in the business at that.
They jumped on the vinyl business to expand but their product just isn't very good. I would suggest Thompson Creek and Renewal over them by a mile.
Pella's doors are also crap-they just bought out a 3rd party and uses that infrastructure to make doors. The best time to buy is in the winter, and at the end of the month due to sales people wanting to hit their quotas.
I would suggest pulling the trigger this month, because Spring is coming and they'll get busier.
