Buying New Windows Part Four - Material Choices
~ Andy Herman, Window & Door Specialist, Petoskey Design Showroom

There are many questions to consider including, a) How do you choose from among all the available options?; b) What are the pros and cons of each material?; and c) How do they range in price?
