My husband and I are going to buy windows for our new building. We want wood-aluminum spruce windows. What should we look out for in terms of quality?
Our favorites diverge mostly on two issues:
Proposition A: The aluminum shell has a mechanical angle joint, the wood consists of triple glued beam.
Proposition B: The aluminum shell has a welded corner joint, the wood consists of a single piece of wood
1. According to claims in our circle of acquaintances, the welded joint is better.
2. Comparing windows on the internet, I have found that most suppliers use triple glued wood and advertise better stability and therefore longer life.
We have already visited homes with windows installed from both companies and they looked good and high quality. However, we have no long term experience and the longevity of the windows is very important to me.
If anyone can help me on these issues, I would greatly appreciate it.
