In -Service Andersen Woodwright Windows
I'm seriously considering purchasing two Andersen Woodwright double hung windows for a basement remodel. I really like the look of the Woodwright with maple on the interior. I've looked at two of them on display, with maple, at two different Home Depot stores and a third in oak at a lumber yard. Overall I don't see any problems with them. I want a window with a natural wood finish on the inside, with a preference for a hardwood, and a maintenance-free exterior finish that will last.
I've read speculation here and on other forums about the fibrex exterior breaking down, paint chalking, expanding and contracting but haven't found any reports from people who have been using these windows for a few years. All of what I've read is speculation, no actual reports from people who have installed these windows and can let me know how they are doing after several years of service. If you have these what do you like best and least about the windows? Why did you choose them and have they lived up to your expectations?
