Harvey's Vinyl Replacement Windows
Vinyl is a well-rounded window material since it has most of the structural advantages shared by all materials.

Perhaps, the main drawback of vinyl is that it is the most prone to thermal expansion and contraction, which can cause cracks around the frame in the long run.

Wood is known for its superior insulating properties as being the best material in that category. In fact, wood is better than all other materials in almost every regard, especially in terms of appearance. You can't beat wood's organically grainy, natural beauty. Its main disadvantages, however, are it's too expensive and it can deform over time from termites and coastline air moisture.
What's special about clad-wood is that it combines the best of the synthetic world with that of the organic; you get wood's insulating performance, soundproof qualities, customizability, flexibility perfected with termite and impact resistance, and a sleek exterior appearance.

In the image, you can see three of Harvey's beautiful double-hung wood windows closely aligned to compensate for the light that's being blocked by the home's surrounding buildings.
The grille patterns you see can be customized to form other variations besides Colonial, but these fit with this home's overall outline.
A nifty feature that's not visible here is the tilt & turn function for each sash. The tilt & turn works by an easy mechanism that unhooks the sash from one side while suspending from the other, allowing it to turn almost 180 angular degrees and making cleaning a lot easier, simpler, and safer.
