Barb, I can't really recommend going with Window World, their windows are not typically going to provide the long term value that consumers should be looking for in my opinion. I honestly think you will spend more money in the long run going with a sub par window.
Wasco Windows vs Sunrise
We are looking at replacing windows in our home and came across your site. We are looking at two different companies, Sunrise, which we have learned more about through your site, thank you!, and a local company here in SE Wisconsin called Wasco. Do you have any recommendations between the two? We are not sure of the series being recommended by Sunrise and intend to find out. (More on Sunrise window prices.) By our initial research it seems the Wasco window may be a step above the Sunrise series. We are looking at double hung, sliders if that helps. Thanks for any opinion you may be able to offer. If it helps we are replacing windows that are original (think 1960's!), so really any replacement will be a step up, we just want to investigate all options.

I would say Sunrise windows are better than Wasco, in general, but of course it depends on the actual model window, glass package and upgrades you opt for. Both of these brands make solid vinyl windows, so I think you would be well served by either window brand - just don't go with their entry level model, upgrade to their mid range model.
Wasco Window Review
Wasco is a Milwaukee based window company that sells 3 types or levels of vinyl windows (Legacy, Premium and European tilt and turn style) within their regional market(s). The company uses quality parts and components, including REHAU vinyl mainframes, double strength Cardinal LoE180 glass, heavy duty hardware, argon fills, full aluminum screens and a non metallic SuperSpacer. The company delivers their Premium and European windows up to 200 miles (minimum purchase is required.
Wasco Windows vs Champion
I now have three window bids for my nearly 30-year-old ranch house that has single pane windows but I believe that they're all double hungs. It's unclear whether I simply need a sash replacement or whether I need to get the full window replacement. Because we are thinking of staying in our home, I'm leaning towards going with complete replacements. One company in the area Wasco windows give us a bid and I would love to hear any opinions on the quality and price. The other companies that have given us bids include Feldco and Champion.
I'll tell you why I really don't like Wasco windows, they use a snap in sill and I just feel like it's a major design problem. But I'll say this, the Wasco is much better than Feldco which uses MI windows which are bottom of the barrel. You may want to consider getting some additional bids there should be some pretty good brands available in Wisconsin, I would think Okna or HiMark would have a dealer in your area and I think they're worth getting a bid.
Wasco Windows Cost
I live in the Milwaukee area and just bought my first home and really need to replace these old single pane windows with something much more energy-efficient. So far, I have a few bids that include Wasco, which bid the project out at $8300, Feldco that bid it out at $7620 and Champion that bid it out at $11,200. Right now, I am leaving towards the Feldco simply because they're cheaper, the Champion Windows are simply too expensive. I do like the Wasco go however, because they are built less than 30 minutes from my house and I went and took a tour and they seem to be a pretty quality window.
Here is my take on what you have so far, three pretty decent products, not the best but you could do a lot worse. I would actually rate the Champion window as the worst of the lot. I have not heard many good reviews on Feldco. I would say that the Wasco go is going to be the best of the bunch they make a very solid window and that price you got quoted doesn't seem to be unreasonable.
Wasco Vinyl Windows
I just got a quote for Wasco vinyl double hung replacement windows that came out to approximately $700 per window and I wondered what anyone thought about that price.
$700 per window for a standard vinyl replacement is probably not the best deal you can get but it is an out of the norm. I would definitely try to get that price down, I would like to see the breakdown of the window and installation costs to see where that $700 is going. They might charge this more premium price because they make their own windows, when all they really do is put all the parts together within their factory. I would suggest getting a few more bids from some other vinyl companies in your area and just see how that per window price compares. Four instance I'd like to see what a comparable companies like Stanek Windows would charge for the same basic window.
Wasco vs Pella
I'm trying to decide between four different beds and they all seem pretty different thing clued Anderson, Simonton, Wasco and Pella. I live right here in Wisconsin so the idea of using and more local company sounds pretty good. My other question centers around installation, should I just get a handyman to come in or should I pay the window company itself to come out and do the installation.

In terms of vinyl windows, both Pella and Anderson make a very poor quality window. Anderson is going to either be American Craftsman or their Silver line brand, both of which are considered a shoddy product. I have heard okay things about the Wasco, but honestly, I know very little about them. My pick would be the Simonton, they make good windows and typically in a pretty competitive price point. (Read more on Simonton window pricing.) I would say you would want to go with their 5500 series or something better if you want to get a very good vinyl window.
