I would rather use Fiberglass with a wood interior if it were my home.

That is what I have....

Milgard....fiberglass on the outside....wood clad on the inside...on some windows....

The remaining windows (like bedrooms) are fiberglass outside and vinyl inside.

The fiberglass can be painted. So while everyone else in the neighborhood has those white vinyl windows that will always remain white....mine are green. But if I want to change the color next year...I can paint them.

What part of the country are you in Bob?
