Topic: Composite vs Vinyl???

The yellowing on parts of the vinyl frame I have witnessed myself on some of the windows in my home, and have seen it on parts of other composite windows. I have seven single hung windows in my basement which were put in quite a few years ago, long before I moved in and I noticed when giving them a ...

thewman. the 8000 series from Alside is reserved for a select group of dealers, pretty much like their Preservation series which is reserved for their largest dealers. Both the 8000 and the Preservation are dressed up Sheffield's with options included that are not available on the regular line of Sh...

I'm not familiar with Illinois Energy, but the Lindsay Worthington is a middle of the road window. You are correct that price is much to high. We sell that series for closer to $400 per for a white double hung.

Have you considered making each window combo a oriel style double hung, both sashes tilt in to clean and operate like a typical double hung and maintain a comparable look from the outside. Cost wise you'll stay around $3000.00, but it won't be as tight as a awning with a fixed unit over it. Heartlan...

Three-Four thousand should take care of things for you. Woodgrain interiors and some trim work could put you a little over that mark. The Republic guy is nuts and the other brands your looking at all would be very adequate.

We've used the Silverline 9500 for many years to compete with WW. Cheap window, cheap price. Q/C has always been suspect but they have found a way to slip below terrible. The screens are of very low quality with a very flimsy frame and the complaints of excessive air infiltration have tripled, along...

Silverline is one of the lower priced brands we sell. Silverline at HD is the American Craftsman and the 1200 series doesn't belong anywhere. I sold the first twelve they ever made many years ago and they never were right and today they have improved them very little. If you really don't care about ...

Views: 1709

I believe that # should be .18 and not .08. Milgard's probably going to drop us as a dealer because of our constant badgering about test numbers, but in their defense they have responded to every request we have submited. We are semi active with them because we believe they they actually care and wi...

kingdart in response to your question. that is pretty high for the fiberglass. Options like the oak interior or true SDL's and a ton of labor extras might get you that high, but I doubt it. High quality vinyl windows will last 25+ years so don't worry about replacing them anytime soon. Inline makes ...

Regarding Window Pro's, they may be a reputable dealer but have given you false information if they told you HD, Lowes, Menards and comparable big box stores use non virgin vinyl. I don't know of any vinyl window company of which there are more than a thousand that use what is commonly called regrin...

We are in Madison and do quite a few jobs for the city, which entails their scrunity and they don't care if you have low-e. The person that runs this program feels replacing windows is of little value so they always opt for the lowest priced window. I know of no codes that require any particular u-v...

We have a customer who has a triple with one lami one tempered and one regular and a storm made with lami and I might add a pretty good storm. They seem very happy with the total results. I have no idea if this is the way to go, but just a suggestion.
