Re: Install methods.

Should I anticipate any issues installing a 60x60.25 slider into a 60x60.25 rough opening? Yes. The mere question suggests that you may want to seriously consider having the siding guys install these for you. This isn't a cookie cutter install. If I were the siders I'd demand it or run from the job...

Re: Future of Starmark and stuck in window limbo

just do the vinyl casement. Looks and performs very close. Not sure about the comment about not liking the look and feel of vinyl, the CPVC composite looks and feels exactly like vinyl.

Re: Finding a Soft-lite dealer in central Ohio

Those could be alarming, but I'd take a look at other review sources as well. Some companies just don't do much with Angies list in generally, and others are soured on the fact that they are now owned by Home Advisor. Personally I've had home advisor leads say that they never contacted home advisor ...

No, no better. Same window, different name.
Like the guy said above, if this is more than a 10 year purchase for you, you want the better window which is softlyte

Sounds crazy low to me. Either too good to be true, or you are just lucky and hopefully already signed.

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

Drop the MI from consideration. Bargain basement product. The Sunrise is good, and maybe get another option to compare.

Re: Am I Going Insane?

He's not being honest or straightforward. The other guys are right. Those are multiple units. It sounds like he may just rip people off on single units for $2k each so he doesn't charge much more for doubles. You are getting good advice here from honest professionals but you seem to not want to beli...

Re: Wisconsin buyer - narrowed selection -advice please

Milgard is only distributes in the western region of the country these days. Your product winners are the Sunrise and the Okna 500 there imo. A significant step up from the others. Also, I have to ask, is the username "big guy shopping", or "big guys hopping" lol. I think I prefer the latter for ent...

Re: Renovations by Sunrise Windows

Gotta be a mistake. Too close for sunrise to use a name like that, and its not very appealing anyway. May as well call it Regurgitation at that point.

Re: Simonton 5050 vs Vista Panorama vs Soft Lite Barrington

That chart came directly from Vista. I called directly to ask for the information because the vendor who have the window quoted through didn't know what the number was... that's a whole different story... Don't doubt that rum. My question is, why put out a chart full of various sizes as opposed to ...

Re: Simonton 5050 vs Vista Panorama vs Soft Lite Barrington

That's the first time I've seen an air number published that low for the Panarama. Something seems a little fishy that they are showing a variety of different sizes and ratings on the same model. I've always know it to be in the teens, more like that .15 number. Maybe they improved something though....
