Re: Brennan Windows

Have you considered getting another quote on NT? Contacting NT and asking for another quality dealer in your area might be helpful.

Re: Window Suggestion Help - Vinyl vs ? - Have Quotes

Windows on Washington is not only an excellent source of quality products, they also provide a wealth of experience and that can save you money, while not compromising the overall job. I’d highly recommend them.

Re: Brennan Windows

I assume you’re in the DFW area. Sounds like they are offering the NT Traditions window, and if so, that’s a really good price on a good solid window. The only premium window brand that is widely offered in your area is Sunrise, so there aren’t a lot of good alternatives. NT is one of the better opt...

Re: Thoughts on Replacement Quotes Central Ohio

Sunrise does make a very nice casement window. Marvin’s Elevate series is a great choice when wood interiors are desired.

Re: Solace patio door is it the same as sunrise restorations?

Marvin products are great, but they're not top of the line when it comes to efficiency or air/water tightness. Sunrise's patio door would outperform Marvin in these areas.

Re: Vinyl vs Aluminum

A good thermally-broken aluminum window will hold up better than vinyl, long-term. They will also provide you with narrower frames and maximum glass space. The downsides are higher U-Values and cost.

Re: Recommendations for modern style picture windows in Austin, TX?

Andersen’s 100 series is not a low-profile window, but it’s a good product.
Marvin’s Essential is the best of the bunch by a wide margin, if it’s in the budget.
Sunrise has dealers in the Austin area, I believe. You might try contacting them as they make a nice vinyl window.

Is the exterior cladding siding, brick, rock or stucco?

Re: Help with Austin TX Window Replacement Quotes /Suggestions

NT’s Presidential, Energy Master or Executive lines - any of them will be better than what you’ve seen so far. I’d get two quotes from different contractors. Keep in mind, this is not a premium product, it’s a mid-grade IMO.

Re: So many choices in DFW

Yeah, that’s a really large window. After reviewing the website and info provided, it’s looks like an average window. The Structural and Thermal Performance doesn’t provide much info. For instance, under U-Factor/Air, it only lists the U-Factor. You might ask them what the Air Leakage rating is. If ...

Re: So many choices in DFW

Sure thing, wish I could offer more. I just haven’t done much research into what window Brennon’s and Clarity are rebranding. Best wishes with the project.

Re: So many choices in DFW

Of course I would avoid RBA, and I’m not a fan of Thermal Windows or Conservation Construction either either. I’ve heard good things about Brennon’s, although I can’t vouch for them personally. I know nothing about Clarity, other than they advertise on the radio in the DFW market like crazy. Sunrise...

Re: DFW windows, lost in the options

I’m not a fan of thick vinyl windows either, but they have to be fairly beefy if you want them to endure. Thin framed vinyl windows are flimsy and will warp and bow in the heat in no time. Best brand you have access to in DFW is Sunrise. Wouldn’t recommend Reliabilt at all. Thermally-broken aluminum...

Re: Don Young Aluminum Windows for DFW

I agree with everything WoW said, and will add that U-Value isn’t the be-all end-all on efficiency. For instance, Don Young’s 8200 series has an Air Leakage rating of .03 and that’s far superior to 90% of the vinyl windows sold in this state that leak like a sieve. Additionally, because Texas homeow...
