Re: triple pane vs double pane

Andersen makes an exterior storm for their windows.

I wonder if Pella has that option as well. The windows aren't that old, but I fully appreciate your issues and frustration.

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.
