Is it the sills or the sashes rotting out?

Is it a vinyl clad window?

If so I'd consider a Simonton Or Wincore replacement window so you do not have to mess with the siding.

The 400 should be a vinyl clad wood window.

What do you want the window to look like on the interior? That will dictate the recommendations.

I would like pine interior to match the molding. I've never heard of Simonton Or Wincore windows, are they a good window? One I won't have to replace in 10 years.

Thanks
