Forum Title: Window Reviews from Consumer Reports - are Fiberglass windows really that bad?
Building a new house in the next few months and trying to narrow down my window choices. This won't be a DIY project, but hoping some of you experts can steer me in the right direction. I have read Consumer Reports reviews but they have a limited number of reviews. Only a few windows get good reviews and a lot get poor reviews. They rated two fiberglass models (Integrity and Pella Impervia) and they both get pretty sorry reviews (looks like they don't do well on Rain resistance). I had been considering fiberglass since wood is so hard to maintain and vinyl tends to look cheap. Is fiberglass really that bad? If I don't go fiberglass, has anyone heard of Viwinco? There is a local window supplier in town that I have confidence in, but I don't see any reviews for Viwinco and wonder how they compare to others. Thanks,

Plastic shims. Treated wood eats aluminum. Then place a 1x4 under the door sill (pvc is best) and fasten it to the wood under your door. This will help support the front of the sill. (A threshold is the part that is directly under the door when its closed.)

Thanks Stickshift. I thought all integrity windows were either fiberglass or fiberglass clad.

Maybe - now I'll have to look. That said, mine are 14 years old so things like that may have changed.
