I put Amerimax windows in my house and couldn't be happier. Money well spent. I looked at alot of different brands but settled on Amerimax because it had all the things I wanted in a window and was in my price range. The Amerimiax window has made my home more energy efficient and much quieter.

Shopping for vinyl windows is hard. Salesman lie and promise the world but then you check out the company and they have tons of bad reviews or complaints with the Better Business Bureau. All vinyl windows seem to have pros and cons. Energy savings is low compared to what you hear. The words "UP TO" come up a lot. References don't answer the phone or don't call back. Guess they weren't that happy with the job. Fake reviews are everywhere. Multiple company names when you search on contractors board. I believe most companies sub-contract out the labor. They say they don't but they do. Working under someone's license is still subcontracting the labor. A owner told me 99% of companies do this. So If they don't they probably don't have insurance at all. He told me a lien release is something to ask for. I don't have a clue who to trust. So I am holding off on doing my windows.

Anlin triple paned argon gas windows are pretty quiet. I live by the airport and needed a little bit more sleep since I started working graveyard again. They price was a litkke marked up( a little pricey) but I figured I could always sue if I didnt like it since my job offers free prepaid legal. The windows were cool and the quality was good but the price could hamve been cheaper but the again I figured American Vision Windows gas to pay for there constant radio ads.

I have gotten quotes from four vinyl replacement window companies/contractors. Two of them are saying that plastic wheels/rollers are better and the other two are saying to get brass wheels/rollers. Which is better, plastic or brass?
Brass rollers are a vinyl window's worst enemy. Over time the brass digs into the vinyl track and the window becomes very difficult to operate.

Triple pane is for energy efficiency, not sound control. You should always get STC ratings and compare them side by side for sound control.

Now a days most window and door companies sell vinyl windows rather than wooden windows of old. Aluminium windows are also in the market, but itís expensive price helps vinyl windows. Compared to wooden windows vinyl replacement windows ( http://www.windowchoice.ca/window-tips/why-do... ) are cheap, durable, low maintenance cost and energy efficient, which means it saves your hard earned money. A lot of people consider vinyl because of of itís low maintenance cost and durability. But one should consider weather factors of his location before deciding on which kind of frame to choose.
