I am planning to replace out wood patio doors with Vinyl ones. I
have whittled the choices to Crestline or Traco (I am not looking for
a pricey door). I have never heard of Traco, but am familiar with
Crestline that I see at our local Menards store. Both the windows say
they use tempered Low-E Argon filled glasses.
Any advice on which is a better brand to go with ?
Also check out Pella at Lowes and Andersen at Home Depot. They both have
cheap lines of those brands. Installation quality (proper flashing) is at
least as important as the quality of the door itself. If one of the brands
has built in nailing/flashing wings, I would favor that brand. Also I would
use the Pella tape sold at Lowes to tape the edges of any door frame to the
studs. Apply 2 sides first and then the top piece of tape so the water
drips out correctly and not under the side tapes. Visit Pella site and
download instructions to see how to do a quality install.

Look at certified ratings for performance, air infiltration, U and R
value, SHG, CDF are a few you need to know. Once you understand them
you will see why Andersons and Pellas etc are a good buy. You loose
