Vinyl Windows-different colors on each side
Hello--I'll give a little background before I get to my question. We live in southern Indiana. We built our house in 1989-90. In our old house we had installed J J Grundy vinyl replacement windows & they were a dream compared to the ones I had before with storm windows & numerous trips in & out to wash. Anyway, I @ least wanted windows that would tilt in for me to wash. The lumber yard/home center where our builder bought his items only had Caradco with that option. Even tho everyone advised me to get Pella or Andersen, I held out for Caradco. Big mistake. The aluminum discolored, moisture got in between the glass, my husband had to put dowel rods to hold up the top sash up, the wood inside cracked, the windows were too heavy for me to tilt in by myself, the grids broke, etc. I did contact the company about the aluminum discoloring & was told I was supposed to go out every six months & wax the aluminum with car wax.
Fast forward to this month & hail is causing us to get one window replaced by insurance. (They offered us $139 for an aluminum clad window with wood inside--full replacement value--another story.) We have decided this is a good reason to replace all the windows. I sorta wanted to go back to vinyl. My husband is wanting to stick with the aluminum clad wood window & paint the inside again to match the woodwork.
Ah, the question. Does anyone know a company that makes good vinyl windows that are white on the outside & tan/sand/beige on the inside? All our woodwork is painted a camel/tan/sand/beige color. We also wants grids in the glass with a different color on each side-white out & the tan inside. We have tried Soft-Lite & Wincore. No luck. Soft-Lite did say they could paint the outside. Of a vinyl window? I think Simonton may offer two colors too, but we are finding that lots of companies who offer two different colors only have white on the inside & a different color outside & we need the opposite. I can't find the Simonton brand around here.
If we have to go with aluminum clad with wood inside to paint, we are considering Hurd or Marvin. Any thoughts? We saw so many company with class action law suits against them. These seemed relatively safe. My husband thought for sure he wanted Pella this time. I didn't care for the lady selling them & then we found the lawsuit info, so we ruled them out.
And then there is the fiberglass/composite windows. I can't find much info & haven't researched colors there.
I'm sure my post is too long, but this is all twirling around in my head. We sorta are on a time restraint too as we have to get insurance a price on the window they are replacing.
I appreciate any info anyone could offer. Thanks so much.
