Re: Sunrise (base - not essentials) vs Soft-lite Imperial LS

The half screens are usually weatherstripped...but a full screen is going to be ultimately better with bugs.

The offset is your will loose a bit of light.

Re: Sunrise (base - not essentials) vs Soft-lite Imperial LS

+1 to Todd's comment.

If you liked both the process and the product from the one guy, and the product is a bit more well engineered, seems like slam dunk.

Re: Sunrise (base - not essentials) vs Soft-lite Imperial LS

The LS is the more robust and engineering intensively designed unit. As long is the slider is well installed (level, plumb and square), either should be more than sufficient. The LS probably has a bit tighter air infiltration number and is a bit more loaded in the sense that it has the reinforcement...

Re: Triple Pane

Are you saying that each batch varies enough with each brand that one made one week might be better than the other depending on the week that one was made? No...I was referring to the batch of scotch I would be drinking while on the the install. But yes...the QA/QC batch. The last two batches of Po...

Re: Triple Pane

Tough to really rank those guys for me. They could all be 1st through 3rd depending on the batch. I consider them to be mostly equivalent with the fit and finish probably being the nicest on the Vanguard. Again...my opinion but there are no shortage of those around so I figured I would throw my in t...

Re: Install methods.

Dynaflex is good stuff.

Regular Quad is really good too.

I am not a fan of the full silicone caulking. Its a PITB should you need to remove or go over it in the future.

Re: Sunrise??

The Vanguard is a good window indeed. I would put it right alongside the Fortis with regards to quality and design. It has very similar data and performance as well.

Re: Sunrise??

See if they will throw the reinforcement in the sash as part of the deal and if so, that is a fair trade.

Re: Milgard Style-line thoughts?

If you are the installer and owner, messing with the autolocks is not as big a deal. If you are telling me as a company owner, would I put them in, the answer is no.

Re: Install methods.

Its weird when you start using very job and task specific muscles.

You'll be sore in spots that you didn't think you should be.

Sounds great. Post up some pics and we will look forward to the updates.

Re: Newly installed window leaking and installer will not take resp.

Water leaking from the head jamb is not an indication (necessarily) of a window leak as much as it is an indication that water is entering the wall somewhere else. Now, can that water in the wall be from a window that is above...sure, but the window is not necessarily the culprit. With the incredibl...
