Re: Carefree Brand Windows Warranty: To File A Defects Claim

The manufacturer is the one that has the warranty on your windows. not the installation company. Its a shame you reported the installation company to the BBB since they were not the ones responsible for the windows warranty. Why would you think the company installing the windows is responsible 7 yea...

Re: Great Lakes?

The Great Lakes Uniframe window is a nice window. The U-Factor with triple pane is a .19. You do lose some glass with the Uniframe its a beefy window.

Re: Simonton offer a shadow groove weld ???

Most of mine was from someone dropping the window,but it didn't take much to crack the weld. I never ran into that problem on any other of the windows I sold. It does weaken the weld slightly.

Re: Simonton offer a shadow groove weld ???

The Shadow Groove does look nice but it weakens the weld. When I sold Schuco I ran into that problem a few times on the Double Hungs and especially with there Patio Doors.
