When purchased properly, installed well, and properly insulated, these windows can be an eco-friendly option, though.

Wood-clad or composite: Composite and wood-clad windows give people the best of both worlds in their windows. You get the energy efficiency along with the low maintenance that so many people are looking for. In ...
