I've been trying to research windows and have been going around in circles over manufactures and material.
I am looking to replace about 30 casement style windows. four of this are picture style with no moving components. Also a nine are double casements about 55x57.
We currently have 24 year old aluminum clad wrap wood casements. The outside metal has faded bad and the plastic covers protecting the corners are fried due to sun damage.
My initial research has led me to the Marvin Ultrex product in either the Integrity or the Infinity. I like the thought of the window not swelling or water damage from a window being left open in the rain.
The Ufactor and SHGC seem good and I also like the idea that if later on in years if the ultrex fades, it can be easily painted.
However I read also that the premium vinyl windows like Verde have better Ufactor and SHGC values. Also they have a better warrenty.
Any help which way I should lean to, Ultrex or Premium vinyl?
