Re: Where to start????

I wish I did as well too.

I love TN and the Nashville area.

I think HomeSealed has you steered in the right direction on looking at some of the better brands.

Re: Replacement Windows and Installation: Question & Opinion

There is usually still enough room if you crab the screw at an angle back into the framing.

We do it all the time and while the blind will be a bit proud of the trim, you can usually get them to fit back and not require replacement.

Re: Do I need full-frame replacement, and how do I vet the quote?

Should be easy enough to clarify, but I can't imagine that $123 included trim and the trim can almost never be reused effectively. You spend more time messing with it than just cutting it out and re-doing it.

Wayne,

No sweat partner. You know this place needs a good dust up every once and a while.

Hope you and the family are well and I assure the feeling is mutual.

Re: Simonton vs. Sunrise

Sliders, as an operator type, are traditionally not as tight as double hungs. The pocket design of the frame, lack of a compression gasket, notching of the interlock to allow for lift out and cleaning, and large unsupported meeting rail typically make them a bit harder to get as tight as double hung...

Re: Simonton vs. Sunrise

Thanks for the very thoughtful/useful response Windows on Washington! I'm in Central NJ. Okna is absolutely out because of the way they acted when I called them. I tried to find out who the area dealer was and they told me it was the Simonton dealer I referenced. I asked for another so that I could...

Re: Do I need full-frame replacement, and how do I vet the quote?

Okay. Nailing Flange, full tear out is usually something that I refer to as a different class of full tear out. Certainly the most comprehensive of the options in this case, but doesn't quite represent the full scope of most full tear outs like those behind brick or an otherwise immovable cladding. ...

Re: Simonton vs. Sunrise

Copied from my buddy Oberon: The DP rating of a window or door is based on laboratory pressure testing in pounds per square foot or psf. Air, water, structural is a three-part test that determines much about a window's overall performance. Air infiltration is the first phase, water penetration is ne...

Re: Simonton vs. Sunrise

The block and tackle system doesn't break unless it is mishandled. I have seen what he is referencing with the break in the inside frame. It does not structurally damage the window, but it does crack the inside and mess with the aesthetics until you fix it. By the way, if you don't mishandle the win...

Re: Do I need full-frame replacement, and how do I vet the quote?

What is different about what wood is exposed in the case of a full tear vs. insert? At the end of the day, assuming you are running a window that is not pre-clad, the trim is still clad on the exterior just as it would be in the case of a full tear out. There certainly are situation in which a full ...

+1.

A few rotted sills is no reason to scrap all the interior trim and take on the extra labor/work that is required.

Re: Finding a Soft-lite dealer in central Ohio

A single review for a non-window service wouldn't necessarily put me off on that dealer.

Any time we are talking about Soft-Lite in terms of brand quality, you can throw Sunrise and Okna in that discussion. perhaps there are more of those dealers around.

Re: Quote advice-Berkshire Elite, Provia, Soft-lite

No comparison between the book ends in this case. The SF runs laps around one in terms of performance and has a much more proven track record than both. If we use your timetable as stated before, you are paying a premium of about $2.25 per day over the Berkshire and $0.83 over the Provia. I know it ...
