I need Help to replace Drk Bronze Aluminum Windows

belindaheadApril 10, 2010

I have a townhome in SoCal. I am looking for a dealer that will upgrade my sliders and windows to the HOA spec dark bronze. I want to receive the tax credit and need dual pane. Any suggestions on who to call? I have found some vendors in the area but most can only do tan vinyl.

There are bronze painted vinyl windows in the market. However, I think in Southern California (because of the heat) you should look at a bronze fiberglass (less expansion than vinyl) or wood clad window. Marvin Integrity is one brand that comes to mind. Good luck.

If you are referring to the energy tax credit of .30 u value and .30 solar heat gain coefficient, I think you may have to look at materials other than aluminum in dual pane. Even triple might be a stretch to qualify.

Here in the Northeast,the color aluminum you are referring to is mostly made by commercial window makers as they used in buildings. They'll be the ones who'll have what your looking for.
All the best,
