New construction windows
We have a home that needs windows replaced and were thinking of replacing them with new construction windows due to rotted window sills. I have contractor who I have known a long time and trust his construction knowledge and work. However, I do like to be knowledgeable. They had quoted us for the following numbers below including all material, labor and disposal for: one kitchen double-casement window, 2 bathroom windows, 1 large mulled unit, 10 other windows and the window above the front door that has a arch.
* $27,000 for Andersen 400 series
* $22,000 for MI vinyl windows (have insulated frames)
* $19,200 for Trust Gard vinyl windows (frames are not insulated)
Based on the pricing and we are not planning to be in our current home for another 5-10 years. We have interest in the MI windows. However, for every positive review of the MI brand, I get 2 negative ones.
I'm just unsure what to do or go with. Any advice?

[Site Editor's Answer]
Hi Tito, so if you are only going to be in your home another five to ten years, I wouldn’t pay a premium for windows. Andersen 400 windows are great wood clad windows, but not worth the price quoted. MI vinyl windows should be half the price of Andersen wood windows so the fact that they are $22K is ridiculous to me.
I don’t know anything about Trust Gard windows, but I suppose this is what I would recommend if you trust the contractor to put them in correctly. Windows should last at a minimum 10 years if installed correctly.
Normally, I refer most consumers to the following page to look at brands that we know and recommend in order to maximize long term value.
