Re: Vinyl replacement options

Thanks everyone for your inputs.

I am now considering whether it is better to get the Okna 800 for $3675 vs the Soft-lite LS for $4060? Isnt the Okna a better window than the Soft-lite?

Thanks,

The LS as I had said was quoted for $2950. The OKNA 400 for $3150 and OKNA 800 for $3675. The OKNA 400 (and 800...
