Painting interior of fiberglass windows?
Hi all, long time lurker, first time caller! :) I've narrowed down the window choice for a new home build to Marvin Integrity or Milgard Ultra fiberglass for various reasons, not the least of which is they both come in black (not so for vinyl).
Unfortunately, the Marvins only give you the option of a white interior. Milgard gives you the option of a black interior, but the only quote I've received is literally almost double (???) that of the Marvins. I'm having a hard time getting quotes back from other dealers. I think black on black windows in this market (Utah) just confuses them. :(
I'm not about to pay an extra $8k just to get black on the inside of my windows. I really like the Marvins, but the exterior of my home will have no white or beige and the Marvins might look funny when open. I know fiberglass is said to be "paintable," but has anyone had any success painting a fiberglass window? Is it difficult? There seem to be a lot of nooks and crannies to worry about on the window's interior frame. Are the results acceptable? How's the durability?
Any experience out there would be most helpful. Thanks!
