    :D I am looking to replace my windows with vinyl replacements. Anyone know of a good, inexpensive manufacturer in OC or Los Angeles. I have replaced a small bathroom window and ordered it from HD. I like the window but was someone more expensive than I hoped. Anyone have any recommendations?

    If you have the right tools you could do it yourself. You probably don't want to invest in the right tools to do it if you only have one window and if there is tile around the window. You could look up a cheap auto glass or inexpensive glass replacement place and ask for a referral. That guy may be cheaper than the HD/Lowes referrals.

    I've attached a picture of our first replacement window. The next replacement will be in brick, which I'll post when it's done.

    If you do decide to do it yourself and invest in tools, here are the links I reviewed before tackling my first window:
