Re: Replacing 23 Windows in SW Ohio

Buckeye, I'd agree with all of the above on product choice. The TW+ is a solid window... If there is one thing that I caught that might be a cause for concern, it would be on the pricing issue. You are obviously doing your due diligence on the product choice, make sure not to sell short the importa...

Re: Replacing 23 Windows in SW Ohio

It would be a lot more money as the labor end is much more intensive. However, it's the only way I will do that installation myself. I've seen too many of the local high volume window discounters and box stores do the express method with vinyl flanged tear outs that have really changed the look of ...

Re: Replacing 23 Windows in SW Ohio

You didn't mention anything about the install? Is the house sided with vinyl? At that pricing I would find it hard to believe that they're going to install a flanged new construction window so it sounds like that they will be downsizing your new windows and installing them as an express installatio...

Re: Replacing 23 Windows in SW Ohio

I also found the Thermalweld Plus to be more attractive and had nice features lacking on the Ultraweld. I was just surprised and confused that Polaris decided to update their middle tier window eventhough on their website the Ultraweld is still being advertised as their top product. But I appreciate...

Re: Replacing 23 Windows in SW Ohio

Thanks, Randy. I did look into Soft-lite and spoke to their local dealer. I did the same for Okna and Marvin Integrity (not vinyl I know) as well. Without a visit they all told me over the phone that, on average, they are around $600 per window installed which is beyond our financial means so I didn...

Replacing 23 Windows in SW Ohio

Hello all. My wife and I recently bought a home in Lebanon, Ohio. It was built in 1998 and the windows are original to the home which were installed under Ryan Homes private label but manufactured by Patriot (now PlyGem). They are contractor grade, single hung that are very difficult to operate, loc...
