seeking advice on fiberglass windows

sarayaleSeptember 15, 2009

I am building a new home in NJ which will have about 80 double hung fiberglass windows. As it is difficult to see the windows in person, as many are from Canada or non-local dealers, if anyone has any experience with the following brands, please let me know. Following are the brands under consideration (some are new companies):

Accurate Dorwin

Comfortline Fiberframe

Cascadia

Fibertec

Inline

Milgard

Owens Corning Armaclad

Robert windows

Serious Windows

These windows are all true fiberglass (unlike Pella Impervia) and all have double hung with a true simulated divided light (I do think this list is complete with no other companies offering such a product in the US market, in case anyone is looking for the same) If anyone has gotten any of these, info about your experience is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Go to greenbuildingtalk dot com, website is primarily about fiberglass windows, lots of good info there.

There are 3 on the list I would stay away from due to what I read, hear and know. Fibertec(quality and service), Comfortline(similar problems, cannot go direct), Robert(I heard somewhere they keep changing their name).

OC is supposedly manufactured by someone else and is relatively new. I haven't seen it yet.

The others have pluses and minuses. Let me know when you narrow it down and I'll give you my opinion. Go to the website above..
