Re: OSI Quad or Quad Max, or does it matter?

Thanks. I tell you my caulking is UGLY. And of course you can't tool this stuff, so if you look close it looks like a 4 yr old did it.

Re: OSI Quad or Quad Max, or does it matter?

Windows on Washington wrote:Plenty of adhesion in Quad by itself. Never needed the additional to be honest with you.
So if you use quad or quad max, can you take out the window in the future for whatever reason or does it become such a strong bond that you can't take it out?

OSI Quad or Quad Max, or does it matter?

Hi, I know OSI quad and quad max is highly recommended here. If you use Quad Max on the blind stops and on the exterior part of the window to seal it, is that going to make it permanent?

Foam spray insulation

Quick question...do you use low expansion spray foam between the NEW vinyl window and the old frame? How big does the gap have to be before you use the foam? I keep reading about installers that don't use foam between the new window and the old frame. They instead stuff fiberglass in the gap, which ...

I don't really do many 500 jobs as I pretty much stick with the 800dx. If there isn't two strips of ...

Re: Installing Okna 500 window questions

Eddie, the fact that you need instructional video's is reson enough to have a true pro perform the installation. Installing a window is far too complicated for a " do it yourselfer" to just do on his own unless you have worked with windows in the past. I just dont see anything good happening if you...

Installing Okna 500 window questions

Folks, After doing lots of research I decided on the Okna 500. I ordered one window, will install myself, see how that goes, then order 10 more. Does anyone have a detailed video on installing a window (preferably Okna) start to finish? I need clarification on how to cut the sill adapter (put window...
