Default Vinyl/acrylic screen porch window replacement recommendations please?

[size=10pt]Vinyl/acrylic screen porch window replacement recommendations please?
Can any of you recommend a company or person to replace these windows? Mine are old vinyl and aluminum sliders. The sun has taken its toll on them, and they're starting to crack & disintegrate. I've seen ads for Aluma-tec. Have any of you used this company, or can recommend another one?

Thanks for any recommendations.

OK, not intending to answer my own post! But I since have gotten an estimate from Aluma-tec, Quite pricy -- $2670.00 to replace the vinyl with acrylic sliders, which will slide horizontally instead of vertically as they now do.

Now I'm thinking maybe I should consider this a DIY project, where I could re-use the old frames and cut the acrylic myself. Have any of you tried this, or have suggestions? Thanks for your help.

Dear PJ

I used that company several years ago and on the day of the installation, they leaned the products against the side of my house and said they would be back in a short while. Two weeks later, I called and asked when I could expect them. They explained that I was not their only customer and furthermore....blah....blah....blah. Finally the door was installed and it has worked fine ever since.

Thanks for the warning!
I'd appreciate any recommendations of different companies from those who've had this done. Thanks
