Comment:
We installed 25 windows in a coastal home in 2008. The double hungs still slide easily and look great! Hurricane Sandy proved no match. No wind-driven infiltration at all. It all depends on the installation being done by a pro, and we have recommended these windows over and over during the Sandy remediation and re-build process.

Comment:
These windows work as advertised. They open and close smoothly and lock easily. In South Texas we look for rain and thermal protection and so far these windows have not failed to perform. One has to pay attention when installing these windows (we fired the builder and re-hung ourselves) or they won't close and lock properly.

More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
