Re: triple pane vs double pane

Not necessarily. The Andersen storm is in replacement of the exterior screen. That additional air/insulation barrier should make the interior surfaces warmer and therefore more resistant to condensation formation.

Re: triple pane vs double pane

Andersen makes an exterior storm for their windows.

You are well advised to look for an airtight, insulated, triple pane unit when it comes to your replacement choices.

Re: Wood frame replacement windows

E-Series by Andersen. Doesn't get too much nicer looking than those.

If you can live with welded corners on a cellular PVC window, you could do a product from Interstate or the Starmark from OKNA which would have a stainable interior laminate.

Re: Okna versus Preservation

Do any of the major outfits such as Pella or Andersen use super spacers in their glass or are they all metal spacers? I believe the Integrity is a super spacer, right?
