New House Windows

We lived in our last house for five years, and told ourselves several times
that someday we'd replace the old single-pane windows. Rather than do that again, and waste some huge amount of money in heat going through the single-pane windows in our new house, we called in the experts and had ten of our windows replaced. That's somewhere around half of the windows in the house, we did all of the third-floor windows and the bedrooms on the second floor.

We chose NewPro windows, which are made locally and seem top-notch. The best part of it is that we paid one price to have the windows sized, manufactured, and installed (including removal and disposal of old windows). The installers were finished within 6 hours.

Interested to see how the windows hold up over time . . . yes they have a 50-year warrantee but the sales guy didn't have any evidence on how long they would actually last (wouldn't a customer testimonial after 20 years be good?). Hopefully I'll write in another 5 or 10 years with a report on the duration of NewPro satisfaction.

The photo is a snapshot I took once all of the windows were removed. Kind of strange to see the house with the gaping holes.
