Cascade Windows Costs
Cascade vs. Milgard Styleline
A bit of background: Three windows in the front of our house get a lot of hot sun (we're in Phoenix, AZ), and the Atrium windows that came with the house are failing. While Atrium is willing to replace the glass in the failing windows, the warranty claim guy said the glass in them is not low-e, which not helping us during the hot summers. That said, we decided to see what it might cost to simply replace all the windows in our home. Two do not match what is in the front of the house, they're not under warranty, and they're very drafty, so we were wanting to replace these anyway.
Right now we're looking into replacing seven windows in our home. We've gotten quotes on Cascade and Milgard Styleline that seem to fit our budget. Three windows are 47.5"x47.5", two are about 72"x47.5", and one is about 35"x23". We're leaning toward the Styleline quote which includes the "comfort upgrade" (glass breakage, pull rail screens, weep hole covers).
We're waiting on hearing back from another company that offers Amsco Studio and Milgard Styleline series windows. We're not at all sure where the Amsco quote might fall within the quotes we've already received, and this company just seems like they're going to charge more than the first company we had out that quoted the Milgard Styleline. Right now we're wondering if we should even consider Amsco Studio or just move on the Milgard or Cascade bids.
Milgard Styleline w/ comfort package included $3900
Amsco Studio $????

Karen, Milgard Style Line is a decent vinyl window, although I'd prefer to see you stretch your budget a bit and go with the Milgard Tuscany vinyl window. (Should run 15% to 20% more in cost.)
Amsco is not well known for manufacturing a high quality vinyl window and neither is Cascade. I would advise you to spend a little bit more now, although I understand this is easy advice from afar.
You may want to see if there is a Simonton dealer in the area who carries the Reflections series. This is a nice vinyl window and it should run in the same basic range as the Tuscany.
Other brands you could consider include Anlin and Amerimax, although these may run you a bit more as well. At the end of the day, spending an extra $500 will be worth it come year 12...

Cascade WinPro vs Jeld Wen Sierra
I live in Northern California and need to replace 1 slider patio door and 15 windows. I received one bid on the Sierra window from Jeld Wen that came to $9,300 out the door. The other bid was on the Cascade WinPro $11,000. Both bids come with low-e glass, but no argon fills. It looks like I could add the fills for around $25 a window if I want to go that route, not sure I need it.

I'm not the biggest fan of Cascade Windows, they seem to change quite a bit with a revolving line up of windows (and warranties) and I'm not sure that I can recommend them for this reason (talk to the many many individuals who have no recourse over faulty windows -- not necessarily Cascade per se -- after the recession brought down the window company they purchase from). They don't make a bad window, but they are a bit bare bones for my liking.
While I'm typically not a proponent of Jeld Wen, I actually like the Sierra model, which uses a 16 gauge steel reinforcement for the sash and frame interlock. It also uses a tin-plated steel spacer and a dual coating of low-e glass.
I think between the two, I would go with the Jeld Wen Sierra, although I would find my own installer, preferably someone who does a lot of Jeld Wen windows. Finally, it's probably a toss up whether you need the argon gas fill or not so if you swing the money great, if not I wouldn't worry that much.
