Is it good or not when it comes to windows?
Jeld-Wen makes it a big selling point that all their wood windows are pressure-treated and won't rot.
A friend of mine just installed one, w/o any exterior cladding (aluminum, fiberglass, or vinyl) b/c she believed the dealer.
I talked to a Marvin dealer a few hours ago and they said that Marvin wood windows are NOT pressure-treated.
IDK what to think of it. Will they NOT rot faster than Jeld-Wen's then?
I could see that Marvin's aluminum cladding is extruded, unlike Jeld-Wen's which is rolled. Supposedly, extruded is better.
But if the wood is untreated, I am not sure that better cladding will help all that much.
And how on earth would a "mere mortal" know what to believe???
Could you explain which is better?
