We have three large windows in our living room/dining area. They look out over our 1 1/2 acre yard. Being high, we have a hillside house, we love the view and ability to watch wildlife.
Enneyhow, a couple years ago one of the windows (all are double paned) lost it's seal and we had it replaced. A couple months later the new window lost it's seal and was replaced under warranty. Now, another window has lost it's seal and I'm facing a costly (about $400.00) expense to replace it.
BTW, the house is now about 13 years old.
How long should one reasonably expect windows like these to last?
And, is the optional (expensive) low-E thing really worth the additional money?
