Choosing Windows

I never thought having windows replaced in a house would be such a process! Wow...I think I might be a window expect now! After spending 3 hours last Saturday at our new place while 5 different companies came to get measurements, we finally got all of our estimates back. We met with a few companies for a couple hours back at my current house over the last couple days to see samples, go over options, get the quotes, etc and finally chose one.

We decided to go with Boulder Valley Siding. It's a local company that was very highly recommended with prices almost 40% lower than everyone else. The owner himself came over and gave us a 90min tutorial on everything and anything regarding windows and glass and brought tons of samples to look at and play with. We were really happy with his professionalism, his products, and his prices fit the budget. We also learned that buying windows from a manufacture that produces windows at altitude is key in Boulder and the windows he uses are made right in Loveland, CO - Amerimax. All in all, we will be having 6 single sliders, 2 double hungs and 2 patio doors replaced. After another quick measurement this week, the windows should be ordered and ready to be installed the weekend of January 8th! Woooohooooo.
