Do all vinyl replacement windows look bad?
My house was build in 1959 and I still have the original windows (double hung and awning). My double hung windows have a horizontal separation on both the upper and lower so it looks like the window is divided into 4 sections. I also have storm windows on the double hung windows.
Most vinyl replacement windows I've looked at (Harvy, Simonton, and others I can't remember) don't seem to open and close easily and look rather cheap to me. Should I go with the wood aluminum clad instead? I live in New England so we do have cold winters.
Am I crazy for liking the look of my original wood windows? Should I be looking at new construction windows instead?
