Okay, here's another one. If I decide to just replace the storm windows on my house, instead of replacing the windows themselves, what would be the best quality storm windows that I could buy? I would definitely want something that looks great from the outside, preferably comes in colors, will provide a good weather seal, easy to operate (no pinched fingers!!) and will last a long time.
Also, how much could I expect to spend per window? (approximately)
thanks a lot

Look for a storm window with a butt frame construction (not mitered), double hollow frame, overlapping sashes, deep interlock, fin type pile and anti-bow pins.

Forget about storm windows, they are a waste of money at any price. The only thing you can hope to acomplish with storms is protcting your primary windows. they have zero insulating value and just make for more glass to wash. I suggest you look into replacement windows. Good windows to look for have low-e glass or heat mirror glass. they will not only save alot on your fuel bills but look much better than storm windows.
