Installing 10 replacement windows, 36 x 50 Double Hung. Both are similar in price installed at $450/window. Anyone have an opinion on either window? PA area where the wind can be strong so I'm looking for windows that don't leak air and need to be wrapped in the winter like my current peach-tree windows. Both are reputable installers.

Can I say neither?

Where in PA are you located? There are some great pros and some much better window options for you in that state.

+1. There is an independently tested performance rating for air infiltration, and neither of those products score very well in that area. There are products as low as .01cfm, those are going to be in the range of .1-.2.
You will likely have to increase your budget a little bit though.

Thanks for the replies. I'm located in southern Pa close to the md Baltimore line.

You are in the window bread basket to be honest.

Ton of good resources and a ton of good installers.

I think "The Window Nerd" might cover your area if you want to give him a shout. He is a regular poster on this forum.
