Marvin, Integrity, Anderson - who to choose?

I am trying to decide on replacement windows. I like the idea of the non-wood low maintenance but want to be able to paint if I want or get tired of the existing colors. I have an older house with all wood windows now.

I do not want vinyl or aluminum for sure. Has to be fiberglass or fibrex or whatever else might be out there now days.

I had a sales rep. from Anderson come out and they were very prompt & professional without twisting my arm or anything like that which I like.

The Marvin salesmen on the other hand have been very UN-professional about getting me a quote, showing up, etc. Not even calling to tell me what's up! My contractor said if I'm having problems like that in the beginning - I should stay away from them because they will be unreliable when/if things go wrong later.

Would appreciate advice.

I prefer the Integrity over the Andersen. Perhaps you can try a different dealer...
If you want the flexibility to change the color down the road without the maintenance of wood, I'd say that you are on the right track.

In that comparison, I think the Integrity is the best of the choices.
