Thanks, everybody, for your suggestions. I had a long talk with the founder and CEO of the company - and who did my quote for the Wincore windows. I have a better understanding of the value of the windows and what we'll be getting for our money. After recalculating for 13 windows instead of 9 (I was not counting the twin hung windows as 2), the numbers make better sense. $475 per window falls in the middle of the averages I've found online. These are their best/upgraded windows of their 5400 series. I have a good gut feeling about the company the people I've dealt with so far and we're going to go with them. I've been assured that we will be 110% satisfied... so we'll see. I'll be very anxious to see how the new windows will affect our cooling bill this summer here in the frying pan that is Houston!! Thanks again, everybody. I'll be sure to post here after the job is done.

I just wanted to say one more thing, then I'll shut up. :-) ... Check with BBB and see if there have been any complaints against this company, and ask the company to give you a couple of references you can call. If everything still looks good, then you need to decide if it is worth it to you to invest that much money in windows. You will not recoup $13,000 on the sale of the house.

A couple of you have kept missing the fact that I'm NOT paying $13000 for these windows! LOL Good grief, no. That's what they said RETAIL would've been. It's only going to be about $6000.
