Re: selecting two double hung vinyl windows

Do they have to advertise so you know how to find them? Do they have to come out to eval and show you products? Do they have to come and measure? Do they have to answer all your questions? Is your project low volume? Are they insured? Do they run a sustainable business so that you can get service if...

Re: Future of Starmark and stuck in window limbo

Okna is changing extruders for the Starmark line. If I remember correctly the old was a Royal extrusion, the new is a Chelsea extrusion. Hang tight, they will have the transition done soon.
I have seen the new double hung, extremely nice.

Re: Simonton vs. Sunrise

If air infiltration is the most important, why do so many window companies make it impossible to find?

Re: Do I need full-frame replacement, and how do I vet the quote?

My response to the OP was comparing a vinyl insert replacement compared to a vinyl full frame( which can be done with or with out a fin). Thus the wood on the outside is completely done away with. The OP asked for a understanding about the two different types of installs, I feel I gave the most thro...

Re: Recommendations in SW Michigan?

The mfg sometimes can help recommend someone in your area.
Certifications can also help good people.
Installation Masters is an independent certification that can sometimes help point towards the right type of person.
