Re: Looking for a reputable OKNA installer in NJ area

We used AGM, Paul and his crew had a great price, did a great job explaining the features of the windows, and the install was perfect. I love the windows compared to the original wood single pane double hungs we replaced.

Re: Help with replacement window quotes

Windows went in today, they started at 9am done by about 530-6pm after cleanup. I couldnt be any happier, look feel, and how nicely installed was probably the best experience I've had with a contractor since owning my home. If anyone in NJ is looking at the Okna's I'd have to recommend AGM windows.

Re: Help with replacement window quotes

So the Sunrise Restorations came in just over $12k. This is about $2k more than the Okna 800 of which three would be tripled pane for noise reduction in the master bedroom. I think the Okna is a slam dunk now.

Re: Help with replacement window quotes

Cost on the 500 series just slightly more than the ViWenco and much cheaper than the Alside windows. Sunrise was here today, I think I liked the look and feel of the Okna better but the Sunrise seems to get more favorable reviews.

I'll see what the price difference is in a day or so.

Post construction replacement of 80+ year old original wood windows. So windows, then roof and siding. Simple enough. :)

Re: Help with replacement window quotes

I appreciate the responses and feedback. The process just started for me and I was never firm on one contractor doing it all unless it was the right fit. I've had my share of negative experiences with projects in the past and being a bit more patient this time should help get me the results I'm expe...

Help with replacement window quotes

Hey all, I'm in the process of doing a roof, siding, windows upgrade to my house and of the four contractors they've recommended four different types of windows with varying degree of cost behind it.
