I have installed 4 of these windows in my house so far. I was originally looking at a lot more expense windows and having them installed but decided to try and install these myself and save big buck, it worked! Installing these windows was easy! It took about 1 to 1 ½ hours to install each window and I am very pleased with the results. If you are a do it yourself kind then you should have no problem, it seem intimidating, but it's really easy.
The windows are nice well-made windows. I replaced the original 60 year old wood single pain windows and immediately noticed a difference. Not only in temperature but in noise. These windows really block a lot of sound too.
When I first started the project I went and got one of the 1200 series window’s only because they were on the shelf at the store. I am thinking about replacing it with one of the 8500 window like the others and taking this one back. The 8500 series just seems to be a little more beefy all around, with nice little touches like better laches screen laches and a lot smother window operation.
The 3 that I order online ship to my house very quickly and were packed very well. I did have one that arrived with a broken latch for the tilt feature on top of the window. I went back to the store a told them what happen gave them my name and number and they had them ordered for me the same day. They are getting shipped to my home(easy!).
Over all I am very pleased! Bang for the BUCK is HUGE!

I purchased 3 of these windows last year and was able to replace all three in one day. Installation was very easy and not messy at all. The quality is good and not drafty at all. I am about to purchase 2 more of them and replace the old windows in my son's bedroom. I love them and my wife is happy with them too.

A very satisfactory product. Accurate measurement a must. This senior has now installed four without help by removing sashes, installing frames, then reinstalling sashes. All trued, caulked, insulated, working smoothly. Will be installing nine more 8500s.
