New Contruction Window Advice
I will be building a new home this year in the bay area - we are doing a modern style home and are interested in putting in good quality windows that don't cost too much.
I originally wanted to do vinyl windows and looked at Milgard Style Line (thin framed).
I was trying to stay away from Aluminum since I thought it cost more that vinyl plus I would like as good of efficiency as I can get.
So my questions are:
If you were doing a modern home design, wanted windows with as small a frame as possible, didn't want wood (due to upkeep), what type would you choose - Vinyl or Aluminum with a thermal break?
And then after that answer what brand?
I am staying away from Pella, don't really want to do Blomberg (we have these in our office building and I don't like them).
Have looked at Marvin, Anderson, Milgard, Soundproof, Weathershield so far...
