Sourcing High-Performance Windows in the Northeast
Zone 5-Coastal CT.
My GC got a quote for some PVC Marvin Elevate double glazed, double hung windows. I got quotes from Shuco and KLAR, both triple glazed and both tilt and turn European types. These are approximately 30% more expensive than the Marvin double glazed. I don’t want double hung.
I’m trying to get the best energy efficient building I can muster in a 150 year old renovation, within reason. I understand there’s little to no sensible ROI on these more expensive windows, at least in my lifetime, but they sure are nice.
Are there better choices here in the Northeast or US that build high quality, triple glazed windows and can deliver product with a reasonable amount of lead time? I’m willing to splurge on high quality windows, but how much is enough?
