...I see billboards around here that do it for $179
Them words make me cringe. That's an abbreviation for "the going broke rate".the going rate
Their Behr paint is also top rated on Consumer Reports. Just to put that in perspective....Their high end window, the American Craftsman 9500 looks like a decent window and is a best buy on Consumers Reports, but doesn't compare to the Simonton.
I noticed home depot is charging $350 per replacement window, however that is their low end window and only includes a half screen. (probably the stupidest thing I've ever heard of on a double hung). On their advertisement it says something about "up to $100 value" which I'm guessing is the value of the window, so they are getting $250 for everything else, plus an upcharge for wrapping.

Simonton Reflections for $200-300? Where are you getting them from? You might want to shop that around first. I always installed them, and recently installed Viwinco and completely changed my mind.I've put new windows in about 20 houses, and I think only one of them was replacements, the rest I put new ones in. The homeowner has requested the replacements and so I've been doing a lot of research. Right now the Reflections by simonton is way out on top (for the 200-300 price range) The Simonton Prizm doesn't appear to be near as good of a window, although it is $60 cheaper.
