which is more reliable ...


ok. but i am figuring that i am going to have the same problem. as those people want to make a "complete" sale, not a diy "half" sale.

i need to find a place that will actually sell me windows.
i just called a local lumber house. they sell peachtree windows. googling showed that are junk. of course they are kinda old reviews, so maybe they are better now, i doubt it.

people on here say to find a "lumber yard". so far, i'm not having good luck with that.

As far as something being more "prone". If the engineering on the window is good and it is a name brand window, there are no worries about it being prone to breaking. Casements are great windows and are the best air & water sealing windows on the market. Sliders are also called "leakers" because they leak the most air out of all operational window designs, with single and then double hung following behind.

I think you are making a bad decision by choosing a window design (slider or casement) based on "IF" it's prone to repair. Look at the manufacturer and warranty. Some offer lifetime warranties.

You can find likes and dislikes in many windows as you search. It has been our experience that the company you purchase from is more important than the type of windows. Pella does not provide any type of customer service. Please do your homework. Keep your family from all the awful heart ache by selecting Pella. Marvin provides excellant customer service, for instance.
