Replacing Windows in Sunroom

Posted by mark9245 (My Page) on

I am helping my parents replace Pella (wood) windows that are 18 years old and they have rotted pretty bad. They need to be replaced, but my question is with what type and brand. This is a sunroom where we keep plants during the winter months, so I know that moisture is a problem. We would like to keep this room as a sunroom for plants, but what type of windows should we use to replace the old ones with? Based on what I have learned, vinyl windows might be an option. Any suggestions?

RE: glass or screen enclosed porch?

Porch is 12 x 20, on the west side, and is 8 ft off the ground. Is screen enclosure
better than glass w/ windows?
