Painting Andersen Fibrex exterior
I'm looking to replace our single-pane wood windows with insert/replacement windows. The catch is that the exterior of our current windows is painted a sort of crimson/maroon that I'd like to match. The Marvin Ultimates offer a aluminum shade that would probably work, but estimates I got have them running close to 50% more than the Andersen Woodwrights (~$650 vs ~$950 for a 28x42" double hung with simulated divided light). From what I've read, Andersen will allow painting of the terratone finish, but I found a post on here mentioning problems with paint flaking off. So, has anyone on here done it, and can you share your experience?
