milgard fiberglass/monticetto vinyl vs wood clad
New house started and ready to finalize windows. Originally we had spec'd out Jeld wyn clad in the budget for casements with some round tops on the front of the house. Was reading that some clads in the future will lose their seal and get wood rot. Decided to go with fiberglass, either Marvin or Milgard. Marvin priced way out of the budget. Milgard not as much but there fiberglass was still over budget. Others have recommended there Monticetto vinyl as being one of the best and this window is a little below budget.
The house is custom french country and in 800K rande for central va. I definitely need to start staying with budget on items at this time, should I cut the budget in other areas and go fiberglass, or go with the monticetto vinyl. Apparently, they dont make a round top in fiberglass, so the round will be either clad or vinyl anyway.
