Jeld-wen or Marvin?
We're preparing to do a two-story addition to our home in Chicago. It will be relatively modern and will involve a lot of windows. We had planned to use Marvin Ultimate Casements, but due to cost, our contractor suggested we check out Jeld-wen Siteline EX. These would cost about 30% less. My understanding is that Marvin is regarded as superior. But I'm wondering what people think of Jeld-wen, especially in this climate. Is it worth considering or should we bite the bullet and go with Marvin? I'm also wondering if Jeld-wen will have the same architectural look on the exterior. Thanks for all input.
