New Construction Jeld Wen, Pella, Eagle?
First let me know say that I do not know a lot about windows, but am learning. This forum has a lot of great information. We are building a new house and are deciding between Jeld Wen, Pella, and Eagle double-hung windows. In our neighborhood, we cannot have vinyl, fiberglass, or composite materials. We are pretty much set on Black exteriors, which rules out Anderson 200's and 400's, which we would have probably chosen otherwise. Marvin Integrity is also out because I guess they are viewed as composite by the association. In our old house, we had Marvin Casements and loved them, but can't afford them this time around.
Our builder usually uses the Jeld Wen builders wood, but I was not overly impressed with them so we're looking at:
Pella Proline: I do know there were some issues with these windows with rot and there's a lawsuite brewing, but has anyone puchased these windows lately and had a good experience?
Eagle: These seem like a great window, but are quite a bit more expensive
Jeld Wen: Maybe we move to a Premium line of Jeldwen like the Tradition or Siteline.
Any thoughts on any of these products would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
