My Experience Getting Replacement Windows in Pittsburgh Jun 1

Posted in Pittsburgh

This year I decided to get 7 of my windows replaced with double-hung vinyl replacements. I was going to do my due diligence and scope out the best replacement window companies in Pittsburgh that were going to do my windows for the best price possible. I had 6 businesses give me quotes. Some were bad, some were good. All were from Pittsburgh.

I decided on vinyl windows because while we value our house, I do not plan on living there for the rest of my life. There isn’t much yard, and I am only 26. I will have a lot of moving around in my lifetime – but for now – we are living in Bellevue – and we NEED new windows. We currently have the 100 year old wooden single-pane windows that are like a sieve when it comes to air and noise. They have no screens, and some won’t even open at all. It was time for new windows.

Places to eat where you can only find food or places in Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas

Iron City

  • Eat n’ Park - An area neighborhood restaurant that got its start as the first drive-up carhop eatery in 1949. Today there are over 8 locations within 100 miles of downtown Pittsburgh, and you would be hard pressed to find any true Pittsburgher that hasn’t enjoyed a late-night meal there before. Visit Eat n’ Park’s Website.
  • Primanti Brothers - ‘A Pittsburgh Tradition for over 70 years’ says Primanti’s slogan, and their "Almost Famous Sandwich" is truly a Pittsburgh best. Since 1949 they have single handedly recreated the sandwich with coleslaw, french fries, tomato and lettuce piled high between two fresh slices of Italian bread. You have to try it to believe it. Visit Primanti Brother’s Website.
  • Sheetz - The Pittsburgh convenience store. You will not find better food at any other 24 hour gas station turned destination. Visit Sheetz’s Website.
