Peachtree Fiberglass vs Crestline Aluminum Clad


We are replacing a French Patio door. Considering a Peachtree Citadel Fiberglass unit or a Crestline Aluminum Clad wood door. Which would you pros recommend?

I'm not crazy about either unit, but I'd give the nod to the Peachtree... By those choices, it sounds like you are shopping at Menards. You might consider expanding your search.

In wood or fiberglass, the usual suspects of Marvin, Pella, and Andersen have nice units. In vinyl, I like HiMark/Okna and Suunrise.

Those two would probably be considered near equivalents.

Architect is probably the better of those two in my opinion.
