Re: Spare parts for White Corona 4000 series Schuco windows

You'll need the IGU measurements (best to pull the glazing bead and see what the hold back on the sides is) along with the IGU thickness.

Once you have that, depending on where you are located, you should be able to get a nice replacement.

Depending on how cold it gets, you might see that outer chamber freeze up.

Re: Spare parts for White Corona 4000 series Schuco windows

The IGU would be compromised at that point and you would likely have condensation issues that would be reactive with the Low-e.

It will need to be fixed at some point.

Mike...do you have Carol's or Shuco USA's information?

Might be good to bookmark that for future inquiries.

Re: Spare parts for White Corona 4000 series Schuco windows

I doubt you are going to find a full sash.

I think you best bet is going to be to get the window sash re-glazed on the upper and lower sash with a new triple glazed IGU.

You need to figure out what the IGU spacing (i.e. thickness) is.

Re: Pella 350 vs Okna 800 (What to do?)

Spray foam is preferred in my opinion. The open cell foam around the windows is not as effective at stopping air infiltration.

Re: Pella 350 vs Okna 800 (What to do?)

I was only commenting on the product in that recommendation. If you like the installer better...its a win - win.

I agree with HomeSealed. The Okna with the standard glass is the more appropriate glass here. The only better option would but triple pane with the standard SHGC glass.

The 800 with the standard deluxe would be my overwhelming choice of that group.

If you want more efficiency, go with the triple pane.

Still gets chilly in NC. I think surface 4 coatings are a band-aid for mediocre glass and unless you live in an arid climate, a possible recipe for customer disappointment and complaints.

Re: Pella 350 vs Okna 800 (What to do?)

The VT of 0.41 is for the Sunseal glass here (i.e. Guardian 5527) and would have a VT that is consistent with the Low-e 366 (or be more in that range). It is not required here unless you are South of the a good bit South which central NC doesn't really fit that criteria in my book. Your climate is s...

Re: Pella 350 vs Okna 800 (What to do?)

1. Omega 8 and 12 are likely just Cardinal Low-e 272 and Low-e 366 respectively. The Low-e 272 will be very similar to Okna's glass which is made by Guardian and is a 7138. At that point, the VT ratings on the two are nearly identical at 72 vs. 71. 2. Not quite. Slightly larger. The Okna 500 is iden...

Re: Pella 350 vs Okna 800 (What to do?)

The tighter window will also be better abating sound. While there are some colonial bevels to the exterior of the 800, they are pretty similar to the Sunrise extrusion once you see it. Can't go wrong with either. If you like the look of the Sunrise, its a solid window. Assuming both installation com...

Re: Install methods.

1/8 is fine with the fibrous sidings. Its more for the siding than it is the for the window.

Re: Gorell window replacement

Tough spot to be in. Have you called a local glazing company? Perhaps they can order or remake the IGUs for you?
