New Construction Windows - On Ocean - Hawaii
We are in the foundation stage of our new home construction phase. The home is on the ocean, on the windward side in Hawaii. It gets battered by salt 50% of the time.
The house will be stucco exterior. It has (7) large sliders throughout the house that are spec'd out by the deisigners to be "Fleetwod" Bronze Anodized Aluminum.
The windows were spec'd out to be wood constucted on site -fixed panel with some "Breezway" jalousies.
We have since changed from wood constructed on site windows, to possibly Fiberglass, or some other material (maybe bronze aluminum) to match the slider doors, and prevent future maintenace nightmares with exposed wood.
Have looked at Milgard/Anderson/Marvin/. Need to have final product be durable in this environment, and be able to be built either with fixed panel with jalousie...or fixed panel with opening to install "Breezway" brand strip hardware for jalousie.
Framers are ready to start...but we are holding off until we figure out this very important component.
Looked at Vinyl, but really not excited about using Vinyl on high end house.
Any suggestions would be great !
