Subject: RE: Home Depot Simonton 6500 vs Sears Alside Ultramaxx

I think you should cjeck things out a little more. Sears sells ONLY Simenton Windows marketed under the name of Weather Beater. They sell a Weatherbeater Max (formerly Sears 7000) with LoE/Argon, the same window with clear glass (formally Series 5000) and a Series 2000 window that is marketed in some makets as the Good window. Sears uses Good, Better, and Best in many products. It is no secret that Sears is not a manufacturer. Sears is a retailer. However, Sears attempts to use a high qulaity product at a fair price. Since profit is not a dirty word, Sears tries to stay in business <where many have failed> so it must charge more in order to offer lifetime warranties, show a decent return for stockholders, provide excellent products and services. It is almost ALWAYS easy to find a cheaper price. Allgood (and many others) offer a window for $149 installed. Let me ask you a simple question, do you think you would want that window in your home? I certainly don't think you would. Their (Allgood) PROMAX window is a decent window but it is $500 a pop. I would liken window prices to car prices. You can buy a new Kia for $12,000 and you can buy a Mercedes for over $100,000. They are both cars but why the big difference? They both will get you where you want to go. But try to pull a boat with either of them and you might find that a Ford will do a much better job. Windows, prices, and companies are diverse. I like to think about it like this. The old axiom "you get what you pay for has some merit".
