The bigger problem with them is the screens. They are not durable. They have plastic tabs on the sides that are always breaking, and they do not sit tight along the edges, providing little protection against smaller insects.
We have since found out that our model of window is no longer manufactured, which makes getting replacement screens and windows impossible.
We would really like to get more durable screens for these windows, but not the same brand. Are there such things as generic screens that can fit windows? Is it possible to get screens specially made for windows? The other option we have talked about is replacing all of the windows to go to a better brand.
Any recommendations on how to choose the less expensive option: replacing the screens entirely? Or should we just invest in better windows?
