These budget-friendly windows use insulated glass and tight construction to prevent cold air from seeping inside, but have limited colour choices.
A quality wood window can last a long time, but they require the most upkeep and there’s a risk of rot if you live in a very humid or rainy climate.
These windows excel in wet climates – even hurricane areas! – and they’re extremely strong, but aren’t quite as good about keeping heat indoors.
With a low-maintenance vinyl or aluminum exterior and an attractive wood interior, some homeowners believe these are the ideal window. There’s still a risk of rot in rainy climates, though it can be lowered with waterproof rubber membranes.

But as they soon find out, going up the hill in the Ultimate Toboggan isn't going to be the problem... it's coming back down in one piece!
