Anderson A or Integrity wood/Ultrex??

zeitgastDecember 19, 2012

What would you reccommend for a costal New England location?

Redoing a whole house-- some replacements and some new. Got a quote on the Anderson's and awaiting the Marvin quote.

The Integrity wood/ultrex is a very nice choice, particularly if you want a real wood interior.

Not sure I understand your comment HomeSealed. The Anderson A-series windows come in oak, pine and maple. Are you thinking of another series or are you saying their wood finishes are fake? Thx

I think the A-Series are a composite.

I did not mean to insinuate that the Andersen does not have a wood interior, just that the Integrity is a nice option that DOES have a wood interior considering other choices comparatively. Andersen recently changed their nomenclature (ie: Eagle windows are now E-series, etc). In the Andersen line, that (e-series) is the choice that I prefer. I do like higher end vinyl windows, but I'm not a huge fan of wood-vinyl combos. I believe that fiberglass-wood, or extruded aluminum (clad) wood are superior options.

Although there are some differences in how the units are constructed, like the standard Integrity, A series are fiberglass exterior with wood interior.

I was waiting for you to post up on the subject.

For some reason, I have a mental block on remembering what the A Series is like that.
