constant force vs block and tackle

How much of a difference in quality is there between the block&tackle vs constant force balance systems? I have read that the constant force is a better system but not sure if it would make that much of a difference in a single hung window which will not be constantly opened and closed during the ye...

Re: PGT windows

So the 4 inch frame would not be a problem for stucco install? That is only the width of the frame on each side? I think that would only affect the amount of glass area correct?

Re: PGT windows

TLH, Do you know if the 2200 PGT would be the same quality as the 2360 window and if so does it have a flange so it can be installed in stucco? Thanks

Re: Installing PGT windows in stucco

Thanks TLH now I don't know what to look for as far as window MFG or type. Guess I don't know enough about windows to ask for what I want. As far as installers go I am sure some just want to install the easiest window and not worry about doing any modifications to the opening forr the type of window...

Re: PGT windows

TLH what do you mean by buck install? Does that mean the opening has to have wood frame before installing the window?

Re: Installing PGT windows in stucco

Why was I told that the 2360 would not work on a stucco install? If it has a fin will that work for stucco or do I need one with flange. I think the Gorell is out of my price range.

Re: Installing PGT windows in stucco

Waiting for a quote now on the 2200 series with the climate control pkg.argon gas solarban 70xl dual pane and grids. Will let you know the quote as soon I get it. I would like to have used the 2360 but the rep at PGT said it would not be as good as the 2200.Thanks

Re: Installing PGT windows in stucco

Just replied to the other post to you TLH. Spoke with PGT and they said the 2200 series is what I would need to order if I wanted to install in stucco.Maybe that is the series you install in your area in your last post to me. Thanks

Re: PGT windows

TLH, Just got off the phone with PGT and they are saying the 2200 series window is what I would need for stucco install. Wish you were in my area to clear this up.
