Exterior View of all ultrex vs wood-utrex window?

Central79December 8, 2012

If we use one all-ultrex window on front elevation will the exterior of this window look the same as wood-ultrex Marvin Integrity window? Will the window stand-out or be noticeable on the front elevation when the other windows will be Integrity Wood/Ultrex double hing windows?

Our front elevation is all brick with all the windows being 6' 2" in height and with GBGs, ( Marvin integrity Wood-ultrex double-hung windows)(painted white interior and stone white exterior)

One of these windows will be in a guest bathroom in the front of the house, so it is integral to the front elevation look.

We would like to use an all-ultrex window in this bathroom so as not to worry about water/condensation issues.

This window will be 2'8" wide x 6'2" high with GBG.(white interior and exterior)

Will the All-ultrex double hung window exterior look the same as the wood/ultrex double hung exterior when viewing the the front elevation from the driveway or street?

You need to go see both windows side by side in a showroom.

The wood/fiberglass window looks like a modern clad wood window and the all fiberglass window looks like a vinyl window, i.e., the elements are all flatter and narrower which results in interior extension jambs and stools that are about twice as deep.

We have used both, all ultrex in the basement, wood/ultrex above, I can't tell them apart (but then I haven't inspected minutely)

The units are virtually identical from the outside the only difference is Ultrex interior as opposed to the wooden interior.

Thanks. Everyone.
We are keeping the window a wood/ultrex double-hungto make sure it matches the other windows on the front elevation.

(RO and frame size varied between the two)

Good choice; these two window models couldn't be more different and still operate in the same manner.
