Tilt and turn windows (Intus)
What are people's experience with tilt and turn style windows? I have not really seen any except for the Marvin one in person. I am looking more specifically into the Intus Upvc vinyl window. I would prefer fiberglass, but the ratings of these windows and the cost appear much better then Inline and other similar windows.
I am a little apprehensive of the turning part coming into the room, being in the way and such. Also are they fairly stiff and stay in place or do they tend to swing more freely like a door?
The other option is fiberglass casements/fixed combinations from Integrity or Pella. Running RESfen, it puts the Intus (and even the new Pella 350 triple pane) at about a $75 a year savings over the double pane fiberglass using their high solar gain glass option (Natural Sun).
