I've had very good results with Therma-Tru doors & Milgard windows.

Marvin makes a great fiberglass window. The Integrity line.

Also had good luck with Therma Tru.

That assumes you want to stay out of the super high end products.

We just installed about 50 Marvin Ultrex, really sharp windows.

Re: Window And Door Recommendations


Celtics #1 fan, is it safe to assume that you are located in the NE region? Okna, Softlite, Sunrise, and Polaris are top vinyl choices. Marvin's fiberglass is very nice, but not worth the premium unless you go with the wood interior IMO. You may have somebody selling one or two of the Canadian fg lines up there too, Inline has some really impressive performance numbers.
On doors, Provia and HMI are excellent, Polaris and Homeguard are very good as well. Thermatru can be somewhat of a mixed bag because they don't finish the doors in-house so it depends on the quality level of that third party company.
