Pro Very nice pic of a quality cap job. Guy I agree with you. it just makes sense to remove wide mulls when ever possible . It actually makes for a better job and increased glass area. also eliminates the need to insulate the cavity between the windows. I still dont know what to think of your differ...

Unless you get a bid on three products and they are all the same thing. Thats when it gets ugly. # 3 equal products for #3 unequal prices and maybe the same window or at minimum apples to apples.
Thats what we are here for Thermo.

Fen ,Guy and Thermo I am just a caveman in my approach. I am not used to your advanced and strange ways. Please dont hold me to the standards of modern man. I only believe if its broke fix it. Common sense dictates reason and all else is BS and costs me(meaning consumer) money. Unless some sales tac...

Pro
If you could post a picture of what was done I am sure I might be able to answer your question.
My question to you is. Why didnt you bring this to the attention of your installer after he did 1 or 2 windows. Instead of waiting untill the whole job was done?

Guy Wouldnt windows be a good place to start with any energy problem anyway? If wind is blowing through the sashes and frames then isnt it a no brainer? Insulate the attic? No brainer. Tell you what . After replacing the windows and insulating the attic. Possibly even after replacing all the leaking...

Heck some customers get pitched back to back with the same windows (ex. sears vs. simonton independent dealer = half of sears bid same window) Are you going to threaten me again hip for ...

U Sorry to hear you have to start all over. Where do you live? Maybe others can help you find what you need at a fair price. Its to bad you have to give up on a specific brand because they allow monopolies on territories. When customer service,expierence,and installation count as much or more . Than...
