Re: Best place to find Cheap Windows?

I had broken some of my Lodekka windows, the best deal was to get them made from manufacturer, costs about 100 each in Germany.
BUT: 2 times I ordered from 2 different dealers, 2 times they made crap because of the round edges, none of them was capable to do them right.
First one gave my money back, I had to throw the windows away.
Second one had about 1cm more on the bottom edge, I realized that only after killing the first window when trying to put it in.
When I ordered the new windows to be made I had an original with me to take the mesures, the cretin who received me was surely drunk or I don't know how this could be happened...
After I told them they proposed to come over to me and to fit them, cutted up my new rubbers and shot on each window rubber about 3 or 4 cartouches of sealant.
It's still NOT tight when heavy raining, I could just kill them idiots. Not only the rubbers are not cheap, shipping from UK to Germany is almost expensive... I think it was half the price of the rubbers!
Another guy told me after that it had been cheaper to do the windows with another kind of glass they can cut but thicker and to seal them like on new buses without rubbers, only sealant, problem is the original aluminum frame with the openers what cannot be fitted anymore so you can't open the window.
I'm pretty sure the guys from Carglass have some ideas about making new windows which you can open, but no idea about the price...
The only one they got right was the first one on the right side, round everywher, they made template from the other original window and sent this plastic template to the glass manufacturer.
