thanks for the replies. A couple follow up questions for you
First, to those of you who said Marvin was better - why? is it the product quality durability, warranty, design, or what?
Also, despite saying we're going with Fiberglass/wood, we just had an Andersen Fibrex renewal salesperson in our home to prepare a proposal. So, we're now considering this product along with Fiberglass. From what I read on this site, Fibrex seems like a great product, albeit pricey, overall. I do like that they handle the installation and they seem to stand by both the product and installation should there be any issues. Seems like other companies will blame the manufacturer or installer to avoid taking responsibility.
So my follow up question for you: How would any of you compare Andersen Fibrex against Marvin Fiberglass?
Note, we have basic rectangular shaped windows -- they'll mostly be double hung and some casement. We don't need the fancy features, just a solid, dependable window that performs well and looks good inside our 1920s Spanish house. And a company that will honor their warranty.
Thanks again. Your feedback is invaluable!
