First time member and I'm torn between the Anderson 400 Tilt Wash windows and their subsidiary American Craftsman ( a vinyl replacement ) - that is also sold at Home Depot.
My issue is that there are a few windows in the house that have box air conditioners, and being that the Anderson is a wood frame window, I'm afraid that the weather elements - rain, etc. will then ruin the inside of the window when it's open. I'm sure that I can fashion a support to hold the bottom of the A/C when it's placed in the window.
Is there any means to protect the inside side jambs and bottom of the window when the unit is in place?
Should I coat the wood with a sealer?
Otherwise the vinyl replacement appears to be the alternate choice.
By the way, this is a cool site.
