Wondering which company manufactures the best windows

I'd like to replace the windows in my 1976 home. We built a house in 2001 that had wonderful Hurd vinyl windows that the builder liked to use. Just wondering if there is a company that stands out as the BEST window manufacturer.

First of all you need to see what companies will supply windows in your area and then narrow down your choices. In Ontario, Canada there are HUNDREDS of window manufacturing companies! You need to educate yourself as to what features you need and determine a price range for what you want to spend. Then start visiting showrooms and talk to the sales people about the differences.

When we replaced our windows, I spent a lot of time doing this, so when I finally made my decision (Ostaco) I was confident they were the best I could afford.

I have a nephew who works for a major high end window company. At a recent family gathering he was asked "What windows are the best?"

"Whichever window best suits your needs" was his very truthful and tactful reply!

The answer really depends on where you are located. The key is to purchase the best quality windows for your budget and market condition in your neighborhood.

Agree with Dytecture. There are many and availability varies by location. Some that we like are Pella architect series clad, Jeld-Wen clad (not builder grade) and Marvin.

We used Marvin windows in our sunroom addition because we needed custom sizes, and we have been extremely happy with them. We were told by our architect and contractor that they were one of the most reliable companies for the kind of windows we were looking for. But as the rest of the windows in our house are original from the 1920's, I don't have anything to compare them to.
