Looking for narrow frame windows in Bay Area

#1 Post by baltik »

My new to me home is full of original, aluminum, single pane windows. I am in the process of installing a new slider and 2 new windows but eventually will need to update the rest of the house. I’d love to mimic the existing look best I can in terms of style and color but having a hard time finding the right compromise

So far I’ve seen:
Fleetwood/Arcadia - beautiful and almost a dead on match but very expensive

Marvin signature modern (bronze)
Marvin essential (bronze)
Milgard style-line (espresso)

Are any of the above choices superior? Any other lines I should be considering?

You will not find anything that narrow.
I would start with the Marvin Essential, with the proper GBG or SDL you can mimic the design.

Good advice above and Marvin should be able to hit that aesthetic with one of their fiberglass products. While we don't get Milgard out here on the East Coast, that would also be a product that I would consider as well.
