Pella 850 or Andersen Woodwright
I plan on replacing my 48 year old single pane windows. I have narrowed my choice to either the Pella 850 sold at Lowes and currently on sale with a 20% discount or the Andersen Woodwright sold at Home Depot with a 10% discount. The windows look similar with the main difference the 850 is aluminum clad over wood, and the Andersen is vinyl over wood. In two Home Depot stores the vinyl was cracked or broken on the display models. I have read a lot of horror stories here today regarding the Pella 850 window. I live in the northeast in RI. Can someone who knows about windows and doesn't have an agenda tell me what is a superior product and why for my area? Thank you.
