Please help me decide

So...we have a 1950 home that has original Andersen wood windows....AND one of the windows is bad enough it HAS to be replaced before winter here in Michigan.

That said, we are going to replace all of the windows upstairs first...which is one set that is 2 stationary and 2 awning style windows below those...And the other two are gigantic awning style hung side by side.

I do not want to replace with wood. Close to the lake, and too much moisture and upkeep up on second story.

Eventually will replace other windows in house, little by little. Prefer solid vinyl or fiberglass. Want earthtone exterior color and white interior.

Had Renewal by Andersen out...are those people crazy? Price is a consideration, but we do not want to go cheap.

Please help us decide which line to go with!

A two tone option is very much and option in vinyl these days.

Most window sales people could probably be called crazy but RBA does charge a mint for their product.

Going with a good quality vinyl window will not be going cheap and will likely yield you a better performing and warranted unit than the RBA window.

Being in Michigan, i would contact Sunrise windows. they make a great product and are known for long term durability and efficiency.

Great window out there in the Sunrise offering.

+2. Premium vinyl is a good choice, and Sunrise is in that category along with Softlite and Okna/Himark among others.
