Re: Anyone know exactly which glass is used for Okna windows?

The one thing i may add is that although most companies offer LowE, there are many variations of it. For example, Okna’s climaguard lowE may be different from another company. There are about 10 different versions of climaguard that i know of, some better than others and some that are more beneficia...

Re: What is too dark?

The standard 600 series glass is not dark at all. Sunseal, like other low shgc glass packages will have a darker tint. This package does have a trade off in that regard. One option would be to install sunseal in only the most sun prone part of the home. Another option, use standard climaguard . You ...

Re: Air sealing rough opening during replacement install

Bear in mind, removing interior casing could cause some damage to the interior, not major but some minor touch up may be required. This is almost always something the homeowner would need to do, not the window installer. Removing the exterior casing can cause another set of problems. If you feel its...

Re: Replacing 23 Windows in SW Ohio

I will add this. Usually when a company offers a high end window, they are much more likely to do a good install. If they care enough to use a good product, they usally care about other things as well ( install, service , ect). The higher end vinyl offerings are not only more costly but a high end m...

Re: Replacing 23 Windows in SW Ohio

Re: Replacement window cost

Its unfair for us to comment on price unless its aggregiously high or low. There are far too many variables when determining price for us to pull a figure out of the sky or comment on someones estimate when neither of us have evaluated the job in person. Some of the variables include the quality of ...
