Hopefully you all can help me bought a house a few years ago.  Now need new windows the windows were defective from the factory after 10 years and the company is out of business... Need all new ones, Wondering What peoples thoughts are on the Following: Andersen Windows Series 100, Jeld-Wen Pro-Line Window, Polaris Vinyl, Pella Vinyl.

Thank you in advance.

I figure with you all being so much older (j.k) and more experienced that it might be wise to get some input.
I have 20 30"x60" WOOD in WOOD out Casement windows looking at replacing with Vinyl, Fibrex, or Fiberglass.

I don't really know the + or - of any of them... But I have installed most of the brands listed, but Pella and Anderson are by far the most often...YMMV.

Hmmmmm, I have Andersons, they are 18 years old and they are still going going going.  Pella's always compete with Anderson, both are top of the line but pricey.  Have you looked at Peachtree or Marvin windows?

Pella and Anderson are the top drawer brands. I have Anderson casement and picture windows. They are good but their not bomb proof.
If you get a vinyl window, make sure it has internal support, like vinyl covered wood or alluminum; otherwise they will eventually sag.

+1 on Anderson and Pella, both are top shelf companies.

I suppose this is to late but, did you get low-E glass with argon filled double panes and tint for the west side windows?

Yes, I believe so all windows have the below options.  Did all Tempered, Laminate, 366.


LoĒ³-366 GLASS®

Our optional LoĒ³-366 glass provides increased performance for high sun exposure locations.  This top-performance glass is formulated to reject solar heat while letting light in.  With LoĒ³-366, light and visibility are maximized, while up to 95% of the sun's damaging UV rays are blocked.

Tempered Glass

Both Infinity's Low E II and optional LoĒ³-366 glass are offered tempered.  This option increases the glass strength to help prevent breakage.  This option is ideal for windows that are close to the floor or located in high-traffic areas.

I have installed Anderson windows before in the past and the quality was outstanding, and have stood the test of time FWIW
