Integrity Wood Ultrex - Unsolicited Review
Last week I got Wood Ultrex casement windows and patio doors for the new house. Just wanted to pass on few first impressions.
Windows are very solid, seem well built. We currently have Andersen casements in our house.
Integrity windows seem little bit heavier - more solidly built. Definitely better looking.
Couple of problems -
Screens are worse than what I got on a $40 vinyl window for my shed 15 years ago. They are worse looking and badly built. Plastic buttons to remove them fell apart in multiple ways as soon as I tried to remove the screen.
Secondly, 9 ft windows are so heavy that it is impossible to carry them - three delivery persons couldn't handle it - dragged them mercilessly. Packaging had partially disappeared before they arrived. As a result, 2-3 windows came with scratch marks on the exterior. My dealer is ordering touch up. Marvin should spend few pennies and attach carrying straps or such.
Opening mechanism operates much better than Andersen.
Overall, I am very happy I chose these windows.
