Advice on windows with built-in blinds:

AmberC813July 30, 2011

We just closed on our first home. It is a 1965 ranch brick house with the smaller metal framed windows. I would swear that the existing windows are original to the house. My husband and I would love to replace all the windows, and we saw a french door that had built-in blinds between the glass panes. We liked this feature so much because we have two large dogs who enjoy messing with the blinds when people approach the doors and windows.

I was wondering if anyone could give us their opinion on a good company/brand of windows that offers this feature. I have looked at some of the other postings and I saw some negative comments about Pella Windows. I noticed they had the option of built-in blinds.

We would love to hear what you all have to say.

Are you looking for wood, vinyl or fiberglass?

Quite a few companies have this option.

+1 on Sky's advice to narrow the materials search first.
