    Hey peeps. Good day to ya. Anyone have experience with Pella casement windows?? I got a quote for 2 replacement sashes double pane, unfinished wood interior, 36x24" for $450/pc so tax and shipping brings it to just over $1100 total!!! Seems absolutely ridiculous!!! Just for 2 sashes? Wouldn't you agree?!?

    If your old sash are still good and just need new double pane glass, you can have that replaced locally by a good glass company.

    It's actually the wood on bottom edge of sash that's bad, glass is fine

    Is the top of sash OK? Find a local wood shop to replace the bottom piece of your sash. Certainly a lot cheaper.

    Tops are all still good so I think I just might do that! Is there any kind of special or outdoor specific polyurethane I can seal them with to protect against the moisture? Not sure if the seals on the actual window structure are replaceable or not

    Are these vinyl clad? Find a good window mfg./repair shop in your area. If they are clad, the shop may be able to put a new wood insert in. Otherwise a good paint should work fine.

    Copy that! I didn't think about that being a wood insert type thing. Thanks for the advice.
