I can't compare them to anything but our older aluminum windows(never again). They are vinyl clad wood, double pane, double hung windows. They are 25 years old. A new coat of paint inside and you'd say they were new.

I have 20 year old double hung and never had a problem. In my area they are the most popular window installed in new or renovation builds.

The higher end of Anderson’s product line is absolutely worth the money.

I’ve been equally satisfied with the higher end Marvin and Pella windows.

The last time I checked, Marvin had a shorter leadtime on custom orders.

If you want the top end of high-performance custom windows take a look at Woodstone

I would think that the answer depends on where you live. Here in Florida, close to the ocean, windows don't seem to last that long before they get some fogging. A less aggressive climate might be gentler on windows. There are also zoning requirements.

Be without fear in the face of your enemies. Be brave and upright, that God may love thee. Speak the truth always, even if it leads to your death. Safeguard the helpless and do no wrong;

X 2. They are constantly advertising on the radio. I have never bought their product so I can't say. They do claim to be the best thing since sliced bread. Thermal dbl. panes are a great savings in utility bills.

Never mistake motion for action.
