You can't test drive your windows, So we did it for you.

Sure, vinyl is affordable. But is it the right choice for your home? To find out, we took a beautiful 90-year-old home and replaced its original wood windows—twice. First with standard vinyl and then with 400 Series insert windows with wood interiors. We documented the process so you could experience the SideXSide difference for yourself.

Where to start
