Atrium Reliabilt Connection
I have never had problems with the Atrium / Reliabilt products which are manufactured in their NC plant. The quality has always been good, the customer service is excellent and delivery has always been on time. While their glass options are limited, they are more than enough here in the south east. I am not sure if they do qualify for tax credit which you may want to find out about if you are thinking of using these windows, but for a middle line window they are good quality at an affordable price.
Reliabilt Survivor 7100 Review
I spend a lot of time researching window companies and chose the Reliabilt Survivor 7100 windows. I ordered them last weekend for my entire house because the Reliabilt 5600 were compared the best vinyl windows on the consumer reports. When compared to Pella Thermastar for example, Pella had a forty four rating and Reliabilt had a seventy three. I think the consumer reports are a great place to find the information you need.
I wouldn't reply on the consumer reports for window replacements, they can be misleading. Often consumer report only tests the products you can purchase in retail store and with over one thousand great windows available on the market, this doesn't leave you much choice.
Reliabilt Windows from Lowes
My experience with Reliabilt hasn't been the best - three of the twelve windows I purchased had torn screens and bent grids. I also got a patio door where the frame isn't square. I would love to hear anyone else's experiences with Lowes as my windows are already installed and the patio door is just being finished off now. I am wondering in Lowes stand behind the products they sell and if anyone will come to see and fix the problem I am having.
Complaint On Reliabilt Windows
My double construction grade window in my bedroom needed replacing so I chose the Reliabilt 3200 with low-e glass package and argon fill. I was so happy when it was installed it really filtered the heat, but now that we are in winter the window isn't doing what it is meant to, in fact the whistling noise it makes keeps us awake at night. The insulation is horrific and you can feel the cold air coming through. It's been three weeks of trying to get an agent from Lowes to come and have a look without any success. My next step is to video tape it and place it on YouTube. I am wondering if I should demand a refund and put that towards a new window as desperate times demand desperate measures.
5600 Vinyl Windows
I am in the process of replacing my vinyl windows and was happy with the consumer reports on the Reliabilt 5600 windows which I could get at Lowes. I have been told these windows are no longer available and the 3201 is the alternative. I would like to know which is the closest match to the 5600 in terms of quality.
I would take any consumer reports with a pinch of salt on any boxed windows. Read through this site to find much better quality windows, there are great options available which can offer you superior quality and great warranties whether it's for DIY or installed.
Reliabilt, Ply Gem or Simontons
There are no local lumberyards where I live in California so I intend heading to our local glass business to see the Milgard windows they have on display for my window project. I also intend finding out if they do offer Ply Gem, Reliabilt and Simontons while I am there.
The Simontons Asure line is new but is much better than the Reliabilt windows. You won't be disappointed with Milgard or Ply Gem which are both a better option over Reliability. These windows all offer good warranties and if you want prices why not ask at Lowes on the Ply Gem ranges, they are often very competitive. When it comes to vinyl windows you wouldn't find them at the lumberyard anyway, you may find them at a siding company if there are any in your area.
Issues With Installation
I just spend $1,300 on a Reliabilt entry door that comes with a sidelight from Lowes. The price was affordable which made it a good choice. I wish I had listened to the contractor recommendations who suggested I steer clear of Reliabilt and go with Milgard instead. The problems started during installation when the hinge side leg was a different length to the strike side, this left a gap in the molding and that needed to be caulked. At the time I thought it looked good enough though for $1,300 I did expect better quality, so I called Reliabilt and advised them of the problem and they claimed it was my problem as we should have noticed it when we collected the door. I wouldn't recommend Reliabilt because they do not stand by their product in any way.
