Who Makes A Better Remoldeling Double Hung ? Anderson, Mercury ?


Hi !
I just installed a few Mercury brand remolding Dbl hungs, they were nice. But they are $250 @ ! I need a couple for my own house. I see that the Blue Box store sells Pella replacements for about $160. The Orange place sells an Anderson 8500 series for about the same. Is the Mercury really that much better ???I have a link to Mercury below. I'm in MAss.
Thanks !!! Ted

Stay out of the box stores for windows and shop around at some of the professional window/siding supply houses. You will probably get a better window for less money, and for sure get better service with less mistakes.

Re: Who Makes A Better Remoldeling Double Hung ? Anderson, Mercury ?


i am being honest when i say this. i would not want pella vinyl or andersen vinyl in a dog house, let alone my home. they make some of the lowest quality vinyl windows available. look at gorell,okna,or sunrise and you will see what quality is all about. cheaper is ALWAYS more expensive !
