Window Shopping

March 18th, 2012 at 07:59 pm

DD got all excited yesterday when I said we were going window shopping. Little did she know we were shopping for windows!

Our 1960 house has windows in need of replacing. They're rotting, the hardware sinks right through, even with wood putty, and they leak a lot. We've spent eight years with 3M plastic, caulk, and trying to hold off buying windows, but I think we have to start now. Since the house trim has to be painted this year, it seem like we should buy windows in anticipation of that.

Saturday we went to three window showrooms, but I need to spend some internet and library time figuring out what's best. I have estimators coming out this week, but I anticipate a month or so before we make a decision.

Any one have experience with window replacement that can advise me?

    You will love the way your home looks with new windows.
    Smile We have a 1955 house and we've replaced all but one giant window. We did the replacement window type. This is where the glass gets removed, but the frame stays and then the new vinyl window goes over the top. Our old windows were single pane in aluminum frame.
    If your windows are wood I would guess you would have to replace the whole thing. Vinyl is very nice. Easy to clean and won't rot.

    I would reccommend anderson windows. That is all we use.

    Thanks Ima and LF. We were at an Anderson showroom, and I used to live right down the road from where they're made. I was impressed by their styles and quality.
