Jeld Wen or ?
I have done some remodelling where I had installed Jeld Wen Al Clad wood windows that I had purchased from the local HD. I've had these for about 3 years with no issues.
Now, I'm getting ready to start a major remodel where I'll need a lot of new windows (30). As I already have about $6K invested in the recent Jeld Wen Bronze colored doors and windows I don't want to throw out the recent to bring in all new.
I'm starting to get nervous about the Jeld Wen from some of the comments here: lots of 'junk', 'I wouldn't', 'mid-range', etc in reasons. But, as I've found with window comments - no specifics on why, how they're not fit for use.
I checked out Marvin Ultimate. They look nice enough and will match the exterior color of the Jeld Wen well. But, they're 30% more than the Jeld Wen.
Does anyone have any suggestions for alternatives in central TX? Again, I want bronze exterior - so Anderson doesn't seem to be an option.
If the suggestion is to go with Marvin - can you quantify the value relative to the cost? Please, don't say 'they're just better.' If they really are - tell me exactly in what way they are superior.
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
