Schucco windows were recommended to us, on the old board by FenX.
We contracted Nu-View of Clifton, the only Schucco people in the DC Metro area, to install a battery of windows in late April early May of this year 2005.
These windows are incredible. TRIPLE PANE, KRYPTON. You almost don't need blinds on the eastside/sunny side windows on our house! they are quiet, and i cannot say enough about them.
The big sales shpeel was for the Schuuco 3-part slider to replace our picture window in the living room...fine lets do it.
The problem was the initial installation, in my ametueur opinion, did not square the custom opening properly and the sill tilts down, so in turn the window's frame tilts down and when the window / slider is opened inward it strikes the high point of the frame preventing it's opening. Since this an isolated incident, a special representative from Schucco USA out of Conneticuit is flying in to investigate and document this failure. The other sliders in our home work like a dream. It is quite a unique window mechanism.
I spoke with George Jr. this evening; I am a bit embarrassed for being a little over Zealous on this Board;this is a powerful tool.
Nu-View as a company is so professional in every aspect of it's operation in this D.C. Metro market that if you buy anything else other than Schucco, you are not buying the best possible product and technology in the current window industry for your money.
