window specialist needed?

I have a brick sided home. I want to change out our current windows with a different design and color.

Spoke with two window installers, who only quoted me the same color and type of windows I already have. The most I got out of the first guy was something about them only dealing with replacement windows. The other guy turned out to be a 'trained sales specialist' who mentioned their installers are only trained to 'install replacement windows'.

What am I missing?  am I not wanting a 'replacement window' ?    what other windows are there?

I saw on some home improvement shows where they removed the brick around the window in order to replace the window, the new windows they put in where different style and color. I suspect this is what I want done, but how do I shop for someone who can and will do this?  Are their window trademens that know this stuff?

School me please!

Don't call window companies call a builder or contractor.
