Can anyone identify these windows?


Hello all- This is my first post here, so first off I want to say hello!

I need to replace some weather stripping and I've been told that it is specific to the window manufacture. That's hard to believe, but I've been unable to find something similar at the hardware store. Any help identifying the make/model of the pictured windows or a supplier for the weather stripping would be most appreciates.

I've looked all over the sashes and glass for some identifying information. No luck....

Thank you!!

The numbers on the sash remind me of Pella, but the sash locks don't.
What material is the exterior? If it's aluminum, is it rolled aluminum or extruded aluminum? How old are the windows?

Hi Ron-
They are about 20 years old and exterior is covered with rolled aluminum.

A clad window.

To make the wood more durable the manufacturers apply a cladding of aluminum, vinyl, or fiberglass.

Sounds like the windows you have.

Take the picture to a Pella dealer to confirm the numbers on the sash. You might show them to a Marvin dealer just in case.

The window locks suggest Kolbe&Kolbe.

Thanks for the suggestions!
I forgot to update this thread with what I know so far.

They are not Marvin, Kolbe&Kolbe, or Pella.

Take one out and take it to a glass shop where they repair windows (broken glass). They also carry different kinds of weatherstripping and are good at replacing it.

Got it. That's everyone for the help

Quote:
The product you have is Crestline 203 Double Hungs and the picture that
shows the Manufactures code tells me that your window was manufactured
in 1989. This is our product and yes Weather-strip is specific to window
manufactures. This product line has been discontinued for a number of
years.

Our entire product line for that window is no longer available through
us, but you can get the weather-strip through a company called Strybuc.
I have attached the pages from there website showing the weather-strip
they have available, please take a look at the weather-strip from your
window and match it up from the attachment.

You can contact them via website or there 800 #.

www.strybuc.com or 800-352-0800
