Help ID'ing window manufacturer
 
Hi,

I need help identifying the manufacturer of a window. If I had to guess, I'd say it's 15-20 years old. There is only one identifying mark I could find, which I think is the model number, A02687X36B1

I've Googled it and checked a number of window manufacturer websites to no avail.

Can anyone help me identify this window?

TIA

Pictures of it, along with the mechanism that holds it up when raised. Picture of the manufacturer label or markings.

It's missing the storm window and I'd like to replace it with OEM if I can. It looks like the storm window was custom to the window itself, judging by the rest of the window/storm windows on the house.

I've got storms on my 1968 home, and some of the window frames have cracked and are deteriorating. In our town there is a hardware store (a do-it-best) that stocks dozens of standard frame materials and they can build new windows if necessary. Unfortunately it won't be a perfect match, but it is better than nothing.

Probably the most effective way to find out about the windows would be to look up the original title information and contact the builder of the home when new, or if they are replacements try to reach the previous owner to learn the contractor name.

If a different storm window fits take it to a window shop and tell what you need. If it's a different size they can still help but ask them how they want you to size it.

You can order Storms for any window, just need the dimensions, and a glass shop can manufacture.
