Anyone familiar with Diamond replacement windows?

I'm looking to replace a 4 old double hung and extremely drafty old windows in my home. They're all slightly oversized so off the shelf ones at Home Improvement stores will not fit. I have however found a local installer who installs these for $250/each, installed. They also meet the federal tax credit.

Any insight, opinions, advice? The factory is literally 15minutes away so they're made in the USA, local, and look good. Plus i could have them installed within a week or two.

Diamond Windows - 3000 Series Windows - New England windows, vinyl replacement windows boston

HEAVY DUTY, FUSION WELDED SASH AND FRAME.

7/8 INCH INSULATED, DOUBLE STRENGTH LOW E GLASS WITH ARGON GAS.

INTERLOCK AT MEETING RAIL AND LIMIT LATCHES.....

DOUBLE WEATHERSTRIPPING ALL AROUND.

ENERGY STAR AND FEDERAL TAX CREDIT QUALIFIED.

Diamond windows

Hello--

We're looking at the same windows and probably the same installer--C. from Braintree?--what was your experience like? Were you happy?

I've been looking at unable to find much on Diamond. They have a so-so record with the Better Bus Bureau--rated A+ but actually have more complaints than most in class and have only resolved 25% of those complaints.

Would be really grateful for your response.

Thanks.

No I never did end up going with them as I couldn't find any more information. The windows I was thinking about replacing have still yet to be replaced. If you do go with them please post up some feedback for the rest of us!

in my experience, it is always better to go with one of the well known brands; anderson, pella, marvin, regency...

i went with another new england produced line, atrium, and had months of problems with every window (about 20 replaced). the contractor had already cashed my check and was therefore unresponsive. i went directly to the company and after multiple complaints, which i could prove and was right about, they told me 'my house wasn't straight and there was nothing they could do.'

just my 2c...
