Step 2: How To Price
After you choose your manufacturer, you will be taken to the next page. Choose (click on) your desired windows style. We selected Milgard Classic Vinyl Horizontal Sliding Window then XO or OX Half Vent. The image and text representing this product is shown below:
Once you've clicked on the window, you will be taken to the shopping cart for that product where you customize the desired window:
1. We named our Window Location "Master Bedroom".
2. Choose the number of windows that you want in this style.
(If you need 3 identical windows then enter 3). We've chosen "1".
3.Choose your size and options by clicking on any of the arrows or the boxed text.
4. When you're done, click add to cart and make your next window selection.
5. Your quote are stored at 1stwindows and can be accessed by selecting an account function from the menu at the right hand of the screen. This menu looks like this:
Account Name: Displayed just below Account Name and above Log Out . If you are not logged in or do not have an account New User? and register will be displayed at the top of this box.

Alter Quote will allow you to rename window locations, change quantities anddelete items you've added. Remember to click the update cart button located at the bottom of the page to save your changes to the quote.

Once created all you need to do is name it and select the state where the windows are to be delivered. Compare Prices will allow you to see what the cost is in different brands.
