Thanks so much to all that reply with advice. I appreciate you sharing your expertise!
I live in Central Virginia and am replacing 7 windows in an old 1920's farmhouse. Looking at vinyl clad double-hung, low-e glass/argon filled. I'm looking for a reasonably priced, good quality window.
I'd appreciate advice also about:
-single vs double-strength glass
-does low e/argon tint the glass noticeably?
-foam filling in frame, needed?
Are you familiar with these brands?
It looks like there would be tax deductions 10% beginning in 2009 for energy star windows. Unless someone knows otherwise, looks like all these types of windows would qualify? Maybe I should wait a few months.
