Okna or Sunrise versus Andersen or Marvin
I am assembling proposals for 16 windows in a belvedere (a room above our kitchen like a "widows walk"). So initially I am looking at Andersen or Marvin. However, many recent comments in this forum extol the quality of Okna or Sunrise windows which apparently can well match good wood interiors. We currently have 12 stationary windows and four awning windows in the belvedere with a 3x2 grid with wide muntins. We have a Marvin Ultimate proposal that apparently can well match the windows at $700/window before install. We do not have the install price yet.
The fancy trim around the windows is long leaf Tennessee valley yellow pine which cannot be replaced. If Okna or Sunrise can decently match the look of the interior wood, why are they not a viable option? There may be other considerations of good vinyl versus good wood windows that I am not familiar with. Also, we are in Franklin County Kansas just at the SW edge of the metro-Kansas City area, so there may be an issue with Okna or Sunrise dealers/installers in our area.
I really would appreciate your comments. Thank you.
