seeking advice on fiberglass windows

Posted by sarayale (My Page) on

I am building a new home in NJ which will have about 80 double hung fiberglass windows. As it is difficult to see the windows in person, as many are from Canada or non-local dealers, if anyone has any experience with the following brands, please let me know. Following are the brands under consideration (some are new companies):

Accurate Dorwin
Comfortline Fiberframe
Owens Corning Armaclad
Robert windows
Serious Windows

These windows are all true fiberglass (unlike Pella Impervia) and all have double hung with a true simulated divided light (I do think this list is complete with no other companies offering such a product in the US market, in case anyone is looking for the same) If anyone has gotten any of these, info about your experience is greatly appreciated.

RE: seeking advice on fiberglass windows

Go to greenbuildingtalk dot com, website is primarily about fiberglass windows, lots of good info there.

There are 3 on the list I would stay away from due to what I read, hear and know. Fibertec(quality and service), Comfortline(similar problems, cannot go direct), Robert(I heard somewhere they keep changing their name).

OC is supposedly manufactured by someone else and is relatively new. I haven't seen it yet.

The others have pluses and minuses. Let me know when you narrow it down and I'll give you my opinion. Go to the website above..
