Re: Am I Going Insane?

Whenever i see a company come in with an outrageously high price and then magically reduce the price by thousands, the first thing that comes to mind is they have connections to the federal reserve. Fyi, no window company has connections to the federal reserve.

Re: Am I Going Insane?

Personally, we warranty our installs much longer than a year but in my experience, anything “workmanship related” will manifest intelf much sooner than later. Example, if a contractor didnt properly seal and insulate a window, the customer would more than likely notice a draft as soon as the cold we...

Re: Window installation warranty question

To be honest, if an install related issue does occur, it would usually be within a year. It would be very rare for an issue to happen after a year. “Acts of god” are usually not covered under the workmanship umbrella and issues such as those can occur at anytime and are rarely related to the quality...

Re: Replacement Windows- Please Help! Sunrise vs. MI

Its not even close, Sunrise is so much better. MI Windows are garbage in my opinion. Window world cater to those who are only concerned with price and not quality. If you dont mind having a flimsy , cheap looking window in your home, i suppose window world is fine.

Re: Window quote opinions

Staying in your home 8-10 years is a rather long time. The simonton assure is their lower end offering and its flimsy. My feeling is that too many homeowners hyper focus on energy savings alone and there is much more to it; aesthetics and the hard to quantify comfort factor come to mind. Aesthetics ...

Re: Quote validation - Okna Windows

Thats good pricing for the 800 deluxe. It was very nice of the andersen salesman to quote you a price and then magically lower it by $10,000. Im sure he could justify the discount with the utmost honesty.

Re: Large picture window glass flex

I agree. You can always get some deflection ( flex) but not a 1/2”. I would relax, not so sure thats an issue. As my buddy said above, a 1/4” would even be a lot.

Re: Casement window questions

You can certainly go into the existing opening. As far as egress, you are “grandfathered in”, meaning if they werent egress before, they dont need to be egress now. If you were creating a new opening, the egress could then apply. Thats how it is in new jersey and i am somewhat sure its like that in ...

Re: Provia vs Sunrise

Fair enough. Was that on the restorations specifically and was it on every window?

Re: Provia vs Sunrise

I have a friend that loves the way the restoration by sunrise installs. He hasnt had any issues as of yet.
It comes down to preference. I do know the restorations is nicer looking.

Re: Provia vs Sunrise

I have seen both and i think sunrise make a nicer window. Historically, provia is a door company whereas sunrise was always a window company. Not that this should sway you in one way or another since expanding a door business into windows is not that big of a transition, opposed to a T-shirt company...

Can't go wrong with either of those. While I love the UltraWeld from a performance standpoint, the 800 will run a few laps around it on aesthetic front.
Only a few laps ?
