Just bought 11 new vinyl windows for the house, a new front door and a new storm door.

American Craftsman vinal replacement windows 9500 series, LoE rating of .32, argon filled, 7/8 glass thickness, with a half screen. Bought the 8500 series, but they gave me a free upgrade to the 9500 series. They are tilt in's with the dividing grate on the inside of the glass.

New fiberglass door, with half circle window and a new aluminum storm door.

All for $2850. Had a 10% coupon from Lowes that I used a Home Depot that saved me over $300!

No interest or payments for one year. We will budget payments over the next 12 months.

Looks like I am going to be busy this summer. Anyone replace their windows before? Any advice?

Looking to make everthing low maintenance in the home -

Vinyl windows (purchased)
Vinyl siding (done)
Recycled composite plastic decking for back deck and front and rear steps (next spring)
Any other suggestions.

How much would they charge to install those windows?

I didn't realize they were so cheap, maybe I should replace my old windows.

Check your IM for my number. I have several questions and would be glad to help you out. I have several years experience in manufacture and service of windows.

If you have the old type double hung wood windows with the rope and counter weight then the replacement will be easy. If not, then not so easy.

Hire somebody good to show you how to do the first one.
