I would post this in the window forum. You will need to post more information to get any direction or advice but it will be a better resource for you.

Vinyl windows have always been viewed as an inexpensive solution to replacing deteriorating, drafty-old wood windows.Property owners need to be aware that if you ask a vinyl window salesman if he thinks your windows are in bad shape and should be replaced, he of course, will tell you that they do. He sells vinyl windows for a living. He probably doesn't know how to repair wood windows, therefore, in his mind, they must be replaced.
therefore be careful and think before you Roofers Manchester

I have just posted on the Windows Forum. Thanks for the advice.
Here is a more information.
Thanks so much for any help.

We are building a new brick home in NC. We will be using double-hung windows. Our trim will be white and the interior will be white.(So we do not need to paint the windows inside or out.)
We are looking for the best trade-off between quality and value.( we do not want to use wood windows, our current house has wood windows that mostly stick.)
Any advice for brand and model of new home vinyl windows looking for best mix of quality and good value?
Likewise, what about fiberglass windows (such as Marvin ultrex integrity)? How do they compare to vinyl windows? Do thay have a long track record? What are the problems with fiberglass? Is any one using them or has used them and would you recommend them?
We really appreciate any help or advice.
Thanks so much!
