well either you're a moron that didn't really realize it was too high and genuinely wanted to know if it was, or you made a thread for no reason.

either way i'm betting you give up installing your own windows after the 3rd one and call a contractor to finish it for you.

No, I asked Genmay if I'd get at least 90% of my money back on resale of the house... If I would get 90% of my money back when I resold the house, the PITA I'd avoid by having the contractor do it would have been worth it, including the energy savings in the meantime.

I had two other quotes given to me on equivalent windows after posting the thread... one was 10K, one was 13K. I declined them all, since discussions with several real estate agents said that it wouldn't make a big difference in the speed or sale price of the house.

I want the new windows, so after I do the roof and siding next summer, I'll replace the windows the following summer.
