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

There are installs where we dry fit the unit into the hole, push it out 1/4", put a needle tip on the foam gun spray perimeter, then push window back.

Re: Fortis of Potomac?

Either would work well.
If it was for my house I would choose the Potomac-hp.

So when I retire here in PA, should I come to NC so they have some more good installers? :lol:

Who is doing the 800Dx for you?
My concern is the field applied nailing fin. Only guy I would trust to do that is DE Mike, he ia a perfectionist.
Otherwise I would opt for the 600DX, it is available with an integral nailing fin.

Re: Full Frame Window Replacement from Interior Only?

Just looked at some of the photos. Those windows are not that old as they have HP glass. Do not use RBA, just my opinion. The stucco looks like it has been well sealed with elastomeric paint. The expansion joints show need of attention. How bout where the window frame is caulked to the exterior? The...

Re: Full Frame Window Replacement from Interior Only?

At times 50% of our volume is full frame replacement. I would be willing to do this job for you. One of my concerns is the wind load on windows above the third floor, you need to make sure that the units select have the design pressure rating needed to meet code. I too doubt that the leaking is from...

Re: Sunrise??

I haven'y used a Sunrise window in years. That said, I was a SL dealer for years before the continued lack of QC destroyed the relationship. I have been using Okna for about 7 years and generally love them. We had some QC issues the past two years. They looked at us like we had two heads. Other of m...

Re: Omni Bow Window

Best if you get local help on that. You have no warranty on that. It could be a mfg problem or an install problem. You have at least two concerns: structure appearance The outside needs to be sealed, windows to seat board, seat board front face and bottom. Once that is done then it probalby can have...

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.
