Replacing wood windows
My house was built in 1929 and has 3 over 1 double hung windows which need to be replaced or repaired when I do a renovation. I want to replace or repair the 16 windows on the first floor.
I have a quote (from last year so it might be a bit low) from Marvin for $300 a window with another $125 to install. I don't want to go vinyl so I am looking at wood. The present windows are original with the house and have wooden storms and screens that are changed out twice a year. I can't even find anyone to repair the original windows, and I am afraid that if I went this route that broken screens or storms would have to be custom made.
The replacement cost would take a big chunk out of the remodel budget.
Any comments, suggestions, or recommendations would be much appreciated.
