Best Wood for Window Sills
I just installed new Marvin clad casement windows in my 1931 tudor house. I am trying to maintain the look of this house (we kept the cladding black, the original color). The frames are totally rotted. A friend advised me to use ipe, but I heard it could not paint well and is not really used on sills (more for decks). Very hard to install. Is this true? Also advised Azek, but heard it could not be painted a dark color---and we need brown. Any advice on what's the best wood to use? We live in the Northeast. Thanks!
