I was at my brothers house when he got a window quote.

I'm wearing just my underwear if I ever get a windows and siding quote, maybe they won't stay as long. Did they break out the heat lamp to show you heat loss?

1st guy complied when I asked him not to. 2nd guy was super pushy and did the heat lamp act even after I asked him not to. 3rd guy complied.

Roofing is just as bad. Just measure and give me a price. I know what I can afford, don't give that line about how I will save by spending more.

Heat lamp presentations are a joke. Easily manipulated. All windows have to meet .27 these days by fed law.

On the flip side I would not just come measure and give a price either. If that's what you tell me you want then I will just give you the cheapest price for the cheapest window we carry. There are differences in windows. My manufacture makes 8 different lines with different quality.

Pm me the price and windows you looked at. I will tell you if its a decent deal or not.

Pella. Had 13 windows and 2 doorwalls installed 20 years ago and they still look great with the exception of the 3 double hung.

I used window world. Guy walked in measured all the windows. They give you a break if you do the whole house. Told me a price, I agreed and a couple weeks later they installed. That was almost 5 years ago and still love the windows

Vinyl. They measure and custom order every window. Opt for the heavy duty frame. Few dollars more and the installers like them better. Every window was the same price installed. Tiny kitchen window was same price as living room picture window. All double hung windows. All sales pitch stuff they claim the gas in the windows is better than competitors and thicker glass. 100% UV block........ Blah blah. Anyway I had a good experience with them
