Need Replacement Windows
Posted in the Winston Forum
#1 Jan 7, 2013
We have live in a house that was a mostly finished foreclosure when we bought it 4 years ago. One thing the original builder did as he was running out of money was to install windows. They are complete crap. Out of most of the houses in our neighborhood, the builder cheapened on just our windows. They are a no name vinyl window.
Hard to open/close…some of them need a ton of pressure just to get the last 2 inches shut
Have tiny lift rails…can barely get my fingers on them to open
Must not be straight…they are difficult to lock shut
Pretty thin…probably single pane
Just complete crap. Our ‘old’ home we left, now about 8 years old, was about 60% the price of this one and had great windows. These suck!
So, just looking for recommendations for any window companies in the Douglasville area – has anyone had windows installed recently? How was your experience?

You maybe missed the "mostly finished" part...we contracted to buy, and as part of the contract it was finished to our specs, better than my old house for a huge discount to the market rate. All-in-all a good deal except for the windows. Thanks for the suggestion on plywood, I'll give it a shot...

Champion windows are like $700 a piece aren't they?

I know someone who will do replacement windows for less than $200 per window standard sizes. If interested get back to me
