I have narrowed my search for fiberglass triple-glazed windows to Fibertec and Thermotech — seeking comments about these two
I am building an Energy Star certified home with fiberglass, triple glazed, low e casement windows and slider/patio doors in Connecticut. I prefer using a Canadian company because of their expertise with fiberglass, triple glazed windows and sliders. I must have window specifications for the Energy Star certification, preferably NFRC ratings or at least independent U, SHGC and VT value ratings. Window ratings do not seem to be diificult to acquire but slider/patio door ratings can not be provided by some manufactures for fiberglass triple glazed sliders and French doors.
I have narrowed my search to two Canadian companies, Fibertec and Thermotech, who can furnish me with this data if not NFRC. Does anyone have any experience or recommendations about these two companies? Also, can anyone recommend European companies who are cost competiitive with the Canadians and can furnish this data? Thank You.
