We orginally looked at Integrity because they were offered in dark colors. We ended up choosing Integrity because, in theory, they can be refinished easier than Vinyl or Aluminum. My wife liked black. After much thought, we (I), decided against doing anything trendy in our new home and went with a more conventional color.

Those look great! We are definitely going with dark frames; it's the way our house was designed. I'm going to have to make a choice soon. Did you think the ebony was an attractive color? I know to some people black paint is just black paint, but I see differences for sure.

This is the look we were originally going for. If you search google for dark window trim (-widow), you get a good sampling without microsoft products or black widows. See link below

I should ask you for one now. Our youngest daughter is now working on the Hill. Lives about 6 blocks from the capitol. We plan on moving some of her stuff up the first week in August. Anytime you are headed south, come on by. Always a cold one in the frig.

I went to see two live installations today and decided to go with the bronze.... Then my husband talked me into the ebony- LOL.

Thanks for chiming in, guys!

Congrats on the move and tell her welcome to the capital of corruption.

We need all the good people we can get up here to right the ship.

Do you think it would look strange for our casements to be bronze on the outside but painted a soft black on the inside?
