Looking at replacing our aluminum windows with Milgard's Tuscany vinyl windows, and the installer wants over $2K to install 7 windows, and none is anything odd or huge. Our house is made out of 8x8x16 split face block with no built out RO of wood, just the block was used for the RO. When I installed the windows that are in there now, I just shimmed all sides to level, and used masonary screws to secure to RO, and caulked. Can I do this with vinyl windows? I'm afraid the screws will pull through the vinyl. Is there any other way to secure vinyls in this configuration?
