Should I repair, replace wood windows? Or buy vinyl ones!?

9 years ago

I have several old sliding single pane windows that don't have weather stripping and let the cold in (in Los Angeles).

Should I:

1) have the glass replaced w/laminated energy efficient and add weather stripping,

2) replace the wood windows with new ones, or

3) buy a new vinyl ones?

Vinyl is not as nice looking but more energy efficient, however, not good for the environment with more plastic being used, in some cases gas, and not restoring what I have....

any suggestions welcome!! Thank you
