Re: Fortis of Potomac?

The company you are dealing with the dropped vytex and moved to the sunrise vanguard.. i think i know which company that is. The owner seems very knowledgeable and he seems to run a very good business. The vanguard is an excellent window and very nice looking. You seem to be in very good hands.

Re: Fortis of Potomac?

The Potomac is their top tier window. Its a bit more robust than the fortis with a DP 65 rating and magnetic seal.

WindowNerd, why do you say that the Fortis is just good, but that the Potomac is very good? Also, better value - Fortis at $500/window or Potomac at $550/window? By the way, we are replacing 27 windows.
Personally, ive sold both and like both of them. That said, i prefer the Potomac.

Re: Sunrise (base - not essentials) vs Soft-lite Imperial LS

I dont know if i would dismiss a company simply for being a little pushy. A salesman needs to make a living, nothing wrong with that. If they crossed a line, thats different.

Re: Two quotes so far

Provia uses a Deceuninck extrusion whereas polaris does not. Bear in mind, there are a few variations of the Deceuninck design. I have seen at least 3 differemt versions myself, all being somewhat similar but definitely different.

Re: Sunrise (base - not essentials) vs Soft-lite Imperial LS

Between the two, i would have to ho with the Imperial LS based on a more robust design with regards to sldier windows. I think sldier windows , especially larger, should have reinforcement. That said, both are well made.

The Pro-Via Endure is pretty much the same window as the Thermalweld Plus.
No its not. Two totally different windows.

Re: Two quotes so far

A good way to start your evaluation is to ask yourself which window brand you would choose if they were both the same exact cost. Next you should ask yourself which company you felt most comfortable with if both companies were the same exact cost. After answering those two questions, you will have a...

Re: Sunrise??

The Sunrise Vanguard is a top tier window, no doubt about it. I think it would be a great choice for you as do most other pro’s. Its also a nice looking window.

Re: Newly installed window leaking and installer will not take resp.

If water is coming through small opening in the mortar/ brick, that has nothing to do with the window installer.
Also, you mentioned you have Crystal windows. Because Crystal is a low end window, i would make sure the window itself isnt defective. Crystal would of been one of my last choices.

What kind of windows are they? They are new ???????? They look like 1980’s windows.
Hard to tell. Could be from the mortar.
