Simonton vs PGT windows

steph9's picture

Good afternoon.  We are considering replacing some windows in our home and have been soliciting quotes from contractors.  Each claims their product is best.  Any comments on Simonton vs PGT windows?  We are looking at awning impact windows.  Thanks

Can't tell you much about Simonton except that they are sold by HD around here and the Impact windows seem awfully flimsely to me. I've used PGT for 20 years and have always been happy with them. Their aluminum  Impact windows are very heavy duty and well built.
