Sears 400 Series Windows

I purchased Sears 400 windows in 2003 . The rubber in some of the windows are starting to buckle. I have original receipt and paperwork that shows lifetime guarantee. How do I go about getting replacements or repair for them? Than You.

Charlene, take few photos of the windows and then call up Sears and ask to speak with their window department. Or just go down there and show them your receipt and the photos. They should be able to tell you if its covered under the warranty or not.

Sears Home Improvement Bid

Hi Guys, we are in Slidell, LA. We have gotten quotes from Sears Home Improvements for +$50,000 wencore windows and for 6 windows from Southern Home Improvement for $3000 using Burris Windows. Yikes! How do I find a window company that is reliable, cost effective, has lifetime warranty and a good product? Can you help me? Thanks from the South, B.

Barbara, the South can be tricky to find good and reliable dealers. Not to say there aren't great companies there, just that many of the top brands I recommend tend not to have dealers in some of the southern states. There was a Sunrise dealer out of New Orleans, but I must admit I don't know if he's around anymore. I would definitely give Sunrise Windows a call and enquire about this.

There should always be a Simonton dealer in your area (google Simonton windows in slidell, louisiana and see what local comapnies carry them) -- their top end windows are usually in the mid range vinyl window range.

I think your best bet would be to use yelp and angies list to find some well reviewed window companies. Angies list is free now and they do a pretty good job of showing you some good companies. Yelp is nice and easy to use as well. You can also use our online form and see what companies they have in the area. Basically, the more bids use get the better -- they're free and although they can be a pain to get, they can help you find the right fit for your project.

Collect a few bids, send them my way and I'm happy to weigh in on the best option(s) based on what I see. We have no affiliation to any window companies so at least its unbiased advice!

Sears Bid vs. HD

Tim, I think your estimate on 13 mid grade double hung windows with standard installation. My question is I’ve had Home Depot and Sears out to price my windows and there price was double. Home Depot was just changing the sashes.

[Site Editor's Answer]

The cost calculator on the site is pretty generic -- there are 20 + factors that go into pricing on every project: window size, glass, upgrades, spacers, foam fills, work to existing frames and sills, exterior capping, type of installation, and many more. That's why we suggest getting the three to four bids. Sears and HD can bid projects out quite a bit higher than local companies -- it all depends on who is pricing it out.

Look at it this way, I can walk into a HD and buy one of their top of the line double hungs for $350 out the door. If my installation is $150 per window (which is relatively high for normal installation) I'm at $500 per window.

If your bid is higher than this, than obviously something about the project is driving up that cost.

Get a couple more bids and tell the companies coming out that you want their best price up front as this is an important, but certainly not the only, factor you will be considering.

Sears vs Anlin And Ply Gem Windows

Here are 3 bids from 3 window replacement dealers.

Bid #1: Sears brand - $6,250 for (3)-6' wide & (1)-8' wide sliding window low-e.
Bid #2: PlyGem brand low-e3 - $3,000 for (5)-6' wide, (1)-8', & (1)-4' wide obscure/tempered bathroom window.
Bid #3: Anlin Catalina brand - $4,600 for (3)-6', (1)-8', & (1)-4' tempered/obscure - all sliding low-e.

Any opinions on what the best option is?

[Site Editor's Response]

I'm not going to recommend the Sears Brand because I don't know what it is exactly. Sears typically sells a relabeled Simonton window. I would doubt whether the Simonton is a better offering than Anlin. The Ply Gem is cheap, I would imagine that's it's the contractor option, which is not all that impressive. I like the Anlin bid. The Anlin Catalina window is a good window. Seems kind of expensive though, make sure you negotiate the price to get it as low as possible.
