Replacement windows any recommendations?

We are looking to replace the windows on our house. Does anyone recommend a company or person to do this?


I always start writing with a clean piece of paper and a dirty mind.

Similarly to Craig, we put in Gilkey windows throughout the house, but more recently, a year ago. We are happy with them. It is like night and day from the previous windows that were in the house.

Let me also add, that when pricing out the windows, we received estimates from a few other companies. We ended up choosing Gilkey because we felt they were of better quality, triple pane and only cost us $1000 more then the next best estimate for double pane Alside windows.

I will mention one negative, the initial quote was rediculous. I asked the guy to come back with something reasonable or quit wasting my time, he did and we were happy.

I put in Gilkey windows throughout the house 6 years ago. I'm still happy with them. No issues, and it eliminated drafts and lowered heating and cooling costs.
