Re: Sunrise Verde Vs. Okna 400 Deluxe, how to do the lead clean

Thank you for all answers today. I'll go to Okna400 Deluxe, because it's a good deal. Both are high quality choices that should last as long as you own your home. To put that in perspective, I've seen 25 yr old vinyl windows that operate the same as they did on the day they were installed. These wer...

Re: Sunrise Verde windows Vs. Okna 400 Deluxe

Sunrise Verde and Okna 400 Deluxe which one last more longer? I have already ask just $200 different between the Ultra-U-Plus and solar12. Ultra-U-Plus SHGC goes up to 0.28 and U-factor also up to 0.29. But we really consider about the U-factor in winter, especially we have 7 monthes in winter. You ...

Re: how to clean up the lead dust during installation

I ask many contractors included Sears Window Co., they don't offer the wipe test. What i gonna do? 1) That contractor is required to provide you with a pamphlet called Renovate Right , which may answer some of your questions. 2) He is also required to do a "wipe test" at the end of the job, and clea...

Re: Sunrise Verde windows Vs. Okna 400 Deluxe

Could you tell me more details why the 500 is better than Verde? Compare to everything, if just Verde solar12 and 400 deluxe, which one you will go? I personally prefer the 500 over the 400 and the 800 over the 500 for that matter. The 500 is every bit as good, if not a bit better depending on who y...
