Hello again all, I am confused about which windows to put in the new home I will be building soon, in the Houston Tx area.Consumer Reports recommends Anderson and Pella wood and vinyl clad windows,but I am unsure about either because 1) termites are a problem here 2) moisture is also a problem, and 3) I have seen vinyl deteriorate over time d/t UV exposure. Most window sites are currently recommending some form of vinyl or vinyl clad windows these days,and I understand that aluminum will, to some degree, act as a thermal bridge. All things being considered,I still think aluminum sash is the way to go if only because it will hold up to the above mentioned elements indefinitely. Am I totally off base here? What do some of you tradesmen think? Again, thanks in advance for constructive input.
