Sturdy and long-lasting vinyl windows?
I am researching an article on vinyl windows for Fine Homebuilding, and am looking for feedback and help.
I am not looking for people to explain to me why vinyl is bad and why no one should ever buy a vinyl window. I already know those arguments. I have never installed a vinyl window in any home I have built, and I don’t recommend them. (I like fiberglass windows, but that’s another story.)
Here’s my question: Have any GBA readers had experience with a brand of vinyl window that is more durable, better built, or longer-lasting than other brands? If so, tell me which vinyl windows are built better than the competition.
