Inline Windows Reviews
I'm planning on replacing 12 casements in NE Ohio plus a sliding glass door and 2 pictures. We're doing a tear out down to the studs, taking out the Pellas that were installed in '73. There are a lot more to choose from than when we had those put in way back then. I want good windows but I also need a fair price and I was hoping for wood clad in vinyl or fiberglass. I know Inline and Marvin have a fiberglass model, are they good?
The Marvin Infinity is a good casement, and I think the fiberglass is a good choice. I think Inline just came out with a new design for their fiberglass casements, and it's supposed to have great engineering. If it isn't out yet it will be soon. Sunrise has a good one, also, with a lot of different material options. If it were me, I'd look at the Sunrise before making a decision, as they are generally one of the best windows out there. I don't like buying a new line, or at least one that's had major changes, so the Inline makes me nervous. I like to wait until they've had time to work out the kinks.

Best Fiberglass Window
Vinyl is a good material for windows, but if you don't like it for some reason fiberglass is good too. I'm not a fan of Renewals By Andersen, they are made with vinyl resins, so if you don't like vinyl what's the point? And they are just a mediocre window. You can't do much better with the Marvin Infinity, but I think the best fiberglass is the Inline. They have been making them a while and have a good, solid product.
Finding A Good Installer
I think the Inline fiberglass is great. Finding an installer can be harder than choosing a window. If the frames are still good and you just need inserts, that's one thing, a full tear out is something else. For some reason, it can be hard to find a window contractor that is good at both, they tend to favor one or the other. You might talk to the manufacturer and see if they can recommend someone, a lot of companies like Pella have certification programs that will give accreditation for installers of their products. These guys usually know what they're doing.
Inline has a new line of Euro-style Tilt and Turns that are really neat. They're a popular style in Europe but I haven't seen them a lot here. They open in two different directions, which makes it easier to get optimal ventilation. They are also really good as emergency exits. I don't know of anyone but Inline who has something like these here.
Inline vs Serious & Thermotech
I think Serious makes a good window, and I also like Thermotech and Inline. Serious makes a really good product with suspended film glass, the lighter weight makes the moving parts last a lot longer and you get more light coming through. Serious has been used in a lot of famous buildings, including the Empire State Building, plus they come with a lifetime guarantee. Thermotech is also great, they are more expensive but they have really great service, and I recommend them especially if you don't know anything about what you want or need. Inline is my third choice but still good.
Inline vs Serious
I'm looking at Inline fiberglass windows, but they look a lot like Serious. What's the difference? I live in Ontario, Canada, and we have long cold winters. We're replacing south facing windows, with no trees blocking the sunlight. I really want the most energy efficient window I can find, we have to heat the home a large part of the year.
I think you'd be happy with the Inline. They make a good window and stand behind their products. They have a good SHGC glass to maximize passive solar energy, too.
A lot of people are confused about Inline and Serious windows. The Serious windows are made from Inlines, they basically put on suspended film and call it a new window. Inline is just as good, has more styles to choose from, and cost less. Get a true triple pane if you're looking for energy savings and skip the gimmicks.
