Okna Insul-tec vs Window world series 4000

#1 Post by BSKK49 » Sun Apr 10, 2016 2:04 pm

I am pricing out 60 X 45 inch slider windows. Is the Okna Insul-tec window@ $670ea. worth $100 more per window than the WW series 4000? Is $670 installed a fair price?

In my opinion, yes.

Better thermals, design, air infiltration, and overall look.

i will say a resounding yes. there is no comparison.
just do a search on what the pro's think about window world and you will have an idea on the quality of a window world window.
go with the okna, its a good price.

+1. You are considering products at opposite ends of the spectrum, so a $100 spread per unit is not difficult to justify IMO. I'd say that you are more likely to get a good install as well. Companies tend to offer top products when they are passionate about quality and performance, not just selling at the lowest price.

Yes.
Not only in the product but probably the install too.

I just recently saw a window world installation and it looked like a bunch of drunks just left an AA meeting, fell off the wagaon, and then decided to install some windows.

My windows have arrived and are not clearly marked. What does the number 5520SL-DX mean?
