Marvin Ultimate

The Marvin Ultimate is a top end line of custom wood frames. Many installers would say it's one of the best wood windows available. Wood choices include white oak, mahogany, douglas pine, fir, and cherry. which offers easy customization for a unique but classic look. With a lot of upgrades and custom options offered, thia Marvin replacement wood option can easily go over $1000 per window, but a U-factor of 0.31 and a DP50 rating make it more than worth it to many contractors and homeowners.

Installed DH Pricing: $1000

Andersen 400 Series

Andersen's 400 Series is similar to the 200 but with several upgrades. With more sizes, colors, and options to choose from, it also features better manufacturing standards. The Tilt-Wash is similar to the Tilt-Wash in the 200 Series but without the flawed sill. The Andersen Woodwright window, although it uses the same frame and sill as the Tilt-Wash, has a sash with a fibrex finish and comes in a more limited array of colors and sizes. In the 400, we definitely recommend the Woodwright option over the Tilt-Wash.

Installed DH Pricing: $800

Loewen StormForce Collection

Loewen's StormForce is not cheap, but if you can afford it and need the durability then it can be a great investment. The interior is very close to the Standard series, but these are designed for coastal areas that face serious weather and need a window that can handle it. The engineering is upgraded to include impact resistant glazing and laminated glass with a DP50 rating, while still offering the style and great looks that Loewen is known for.

Wood window options would include Andersen 400 series, Marvin Ultimate, Marvin Integrity (wood interior option), Pella Architect series, and the Jeld Wen aura last wood option.

One other option: a vinyl window with an interior laminate. All the benefits of vinyl windows with the look of a real wood species inside. They have come along ways on this front.

My favorites include: Okna, Sunrise, Soft-Lite, Polaris and Ideal. Hopefully, one or more of these brands has local companies that service your areas.

Best Wood Laminate Windows

In your opinion what is the best replacement mid grade or higher window on the market today? I have casement windows and would like wood look laminate grain on the inside.I replaced a window 6 years ago and it had a sticker like wood grain that now looks like crap all peeling off.

Jane, that's frustrating, I feel like the interior laminates have come a long way, although if you are going to go with an interior laminate I would suggest buying from the top manufacturers who offer this option. My favorites include: Okna, Sunrise, Soft-Lite, Polaris and PGT. Hopefully, one or more of these brands has local companies that service your areas. Make sure to ask them to bring the samples of the interior wood laminate window when they come out so you can touch and feel it, etc. Let me know what you think of the quality - I'm impressed with them, but I alsways like to hear from others to get their take!
