anderson 400 series to paint or not to paint

dn413May 24, 2012

We are in the process of a complete home reno and have finally decided on the Anderson 400 series double hung windows. However, now we can not decide if we should go natural wood and stain them or have them pre-painted white. Will the wood look go with white modeling? or do i have to stay with wood throughout the house. FYI the house is down to studs so we can really go with what ever we want at this point. Thanks for the help

This is just my opinion, but I cringe when people purchase wood windows just to paint them white. If you are going with white, consider a material that won't rot whether it be vinyl, fiberglass, or composite. I also prefer the interior window color to match the mouldings, but that is just me.

If you are going with white, I would recommend another option as well.
