well. i have single hung windows now. but i think i would like sliders. the problem is "the tax man". they could notice the sliders(idk, but maybe) and make me "rent" them. but if i put in single hungs, i have a much better chance of avoiding that.

Changing a twin SH to a slider should not be a problem, as it is not a structural alteration.
Many vinyl windows do offer factory exterior paint options. Interiors can be painted, but it will void most warranties.

Most manufacturers will have "standard options" (ie: extrusions) in white, almond and brown. Anything beyond that would require a "custom" option. If you are talking interior, there are various woodgrain and color options available, as well as some stainable/paintable options.

Have you searched for "Window4U" yet? He is in Chicago and could supply you with the best windows that money can buy. They also have a brown and almond version.
