I've recently purchased a 1939 colonial. We have 12 windows that I plan on replacing myself. I’m replacing, for both energy efficiency and cosmetic reasons (They’re old). I'm not interested in new construction because my frames still seem to be in good condition with no rot and are still square. From the limited info. I was able to obtain about replacement windows, I've narrowed my selections to two brands. Marvin Tilt-Pacs and Jeld-wen Pozzi. I like Marvin, because of the name, but my wife is not all that crazy about the way the tilt feature works. It works by compressing the vinyl side jambs to release the sash’s. We like the way the Jeld-wen Pozzi tilt-in feature works. It works with finger latch’s that release the sash from the jamb. I’ve never heard of Pozzi before though. Does anyone have any insight on either of these windows or others that I’m not aware of? We aren’t interested in vinyl replacements. Also, are there any websites out there that cover window reviews? Consumer reports has nothing and I can’t find too much with Google. So strange, I thought this would be a hot topic, but I’m having trouble acquiring knowledge and info.
