Rating 2
"I have a ten year old house in North Texas with GA 1900 series aluminum frame windows installed by the builder and at least 50% have broken their seals. When the outside temperature was 10 F this past winter, we hung a blanket over the window and the room temperature went up 10 F in 20 minutes." -Millersville
