Mixing windows

Posted by mel71 (My Page) on

My home has the original 1930's wood windows. In the living room and the dining room, the wood is stained and looks beautiful. In the bedrooms, the wood is painted white. I would like to replace the windows and feel double hung vinyl windows are the most cost effective for the bedrooms, but I would like to keep a stained wood interior in the living and dining rooms. I was thinking of doing Anderson in those rooms with a white vinyl exterior to match the vinyl bedroom windows on the exterior elevation, but I don't like the white rubber seals that appear against the wood in Anderson double hung windows. Does anyone have any suggestions of other window lines that may achieve my goal?

Look at Marvin Infinity with the Everwood interior. Fiberglass framed. Can be stained any color, or it also comes in white, is also paintable, and there are exterior color options. One of the best alternatives on the market, in my opinion.
I recommend avoiding 'fibrex' products like Renewal as high end vinyl would be much better than that, if you like vinyl.
My 2cents.

Marvin Infinity with Everwood, Starmark composite with stainable interior, or Inline fiberglass with wood interior.
