Wood interiors--do any look nice?
Still window shopping and appreciate all the assistance. :)
It turns out we want stained wood window interiors on most of our new windows and sliding doors. Some are replacement windows and most are new construction. (I think the replacements will have the hole gutted out enough to go with the same type of installation though.)
Looking at windows in a showroom, it seems like the wood interiors are sort of, well, not furniture quality. I suspect I need to lower my expectations.
Are there nicer ones? We want a cherry interior which apparently knocks out many of the lines we'd been considering. We looked at Andersen Eagle, Marvin Ultimate, and some sort of JeldWen (because those were the ones that particular showroom had that were available in cherry).
I admit I have no experience with modern windows, but they all looked so darn cheap, inside and out. Ugly seams, sloppy woodwork. And of course they aren't.
In the interest of frugality (as much as can be had at this point), can something like a Marvin Ultimate be placed next to a Marvin Integrity and look the same on the exterior? (Interiors would be different rooms.)
The house is a one story and many of the windows open onto patios and so the exteriors will be highly visible. They will also be shaded and protected from weather and we have a mild climate anyway.
Do any wood-interior windows look nice, both sides? Did I just see bad ones on display? Any suggestions? Thanks!
