I’ve spoken to two companies now about windows (Sela and Builders&Remodelers). Sela came two weeks ago and I still don’t have a quote from them. I finally emailed them and was told I’ll have it in a couple days. It’s weird given that they talked to us for 5 minutes and then left about 20 minutes of measurements they took without us

Builders and Remodelers have us a very in depth walk through of what they sell and different things we should know when looking. It was geared to “this is why our product is better” but you need to expect that. It was longer than I wanted it to be but mostly informative and I have a much better idea of what I should be asking others.

What I didn’t really like was that we got a quote from them and then a semi hard sell about buying today. I was pretty clear when I called them we are looking and thinking about buying but wouldn’t make decisions on. It’s also pretty amazing they would drop the price 20% right on the spot and then have the audacity to tel us that price may not be available even in a few weeks. It’s stuff like that which makes me really hate dealing with contractors even though I think the quote isn’t terrible

There’s a reason they don’t want to to have time to research.

If you ever go for a time share presentation, check out the prices of those bailing on their timeshare vs what you were presented. LOL

I don’t ever want to sit in a timeshare presentation. We have no interest in a second house unless we buy a place purely as a rental.

The biggest challenge I’m finding is that we have brown exterior trim and 80s oak everywhere. We could repaint the trim of the house to make white windows work on the exterior but we will have to swallow the cost of an upgraded internal option I guess if we decide to do it
