vinyl windows - what is Home Depot 6500?


D

Doug Lassiter

I was told that the Home Depot 6500 series vinyl windows are actually
some lower grade of Simonton windows rebranded by Home Depot. Does
anyone have details -- in particular what Simonton product line most
closely corresponds? Also, I seem to be unable to find on the web any
thermal data for the 6500 series.

I have a few 6500 windows, and am in the market for comparables.

Thx

a thought: the freight and warranty when the glass gets moisture inside
would be best handled locally.

Hmm, The vinyl windows at the Home Depots in my area are made by American
Craftsman http://www.americancraftsmanwin.com/ and their numbering scheme is
similar (7500, 8500, 9500, etc among many others) but there is no 6500 series.
I have the catalog in front of me and nothing on the web site. Are you sure of
the series number?

Confusing but the windows STOCKED and sold in the stores are American
Crapsman.
The windows sold INSTALLED are the Simonton's. I don't know what model they
correspond to (don't have my book right here) but there were few changes
made.

Calhoun is right. I should have specified that these "6500 Series Vinyl
Windows" are the installed windows, which are clearly much better than
those AC ones that are stocked in the stores.

Now the installer said that these were Simonton, but that since they
were rebranded by Home Depot, they weren't allowed to advertise that.
But some people tell me that these are a lower grade Simonton
contractor windows, while others say that they are something like
Simonton 5100s or so.

They are fine windows, and I'm happy with them, but before I get more
directly from Simonton, I'd kinda like to know what my first batch was.
Simonton is obviously not going to help me figure it out, and Home
Depot is probably contractually barred from doing so.
