Sorry if this is redundent but I can't seem to find an answer. I'm researching replacement windows for a house built in the 1930's in Michigan. I've been looking at vinyl windows but some tell me they can't take the cold and to go with vinyl clad wood. Any opinions?

Also, the vinyl ones I've looked at and like are North Star and Quaker. Does anyone have experience with these brands, good, bad or otherwise?

Thanks, a very confused wife stuck with doing research!

Vinyl windows can take the climate changes without issue. I would be more concerned about a clad product failing due to the different expansion rates.

Spend some time on this link and you will get a good education.
