No real benefits between a 7/8" or 1" IGU in this case. As long as they are both Double Strength glass, you are good.

Re: I need some replacement/ or full frame window advise


WonW, thank you for quick and clear guidance. One more question: one of the window guys I spoke to, seemed to indicate that Anderson SilverLine had a lot of issues in the past but they now have significantly improved their product and I should at least consider them. Is there any weight to that, I ask because from all that I have read SilverLine's biggest selling point is price, not quality. I admit it, I have not tried to look at any silverline windows during my search. Any comments?

I am not a fan of the Silverline windows, but I will confess to not having looked at them in the last several years. Even if they are better, they would have a long way to go to get into the premium class of products.

Re: I need some replacement/ or full frame window advise


Good advice from WOW. Regarding the glass thickness, among other features, I'd probably defer to the U factor for thermal comparison purposes as opposed to getting too hung up on one specific item.
