I'm trying to decide between norco and pella casement windows. I know their in different leagues but the pella as with most pull the casement window near the center of the opening when fully opened and Norco does not.
Without getting people into a debate over the issue of consumer reports readers being nerds (see previous norco question by other) I would like to know if someone has current experience with norco windows and what their opinion is.
Thanks.

I've installed both Norco and Pella Doublehung windows but neither in the casement type. IMO, You are right. They are not ion the same league as one another.
I have had numberous problems with the Pella's, some of which were never corrected, and only one problem with a Norco which was immediately corrected. It was a bad seal in the glass when it was delivered and might have been from shipping problems.
I consider the Norco superior to the Pella in design and in finer milwork of the wood.
