Measuring is critical.
Do you mean that you only have $500 to spend per window...?
If by a sloped sill adapter, Pella is referring to a "sill angle" or other clip in extrusion, yes....most other companies offer that.
I think at this point that you are probably better suited contacting a contractor that is experienced in this sort of thing. If you are worried about spending money and mis-measure a couple of windows...there goes all the savings that you might have benefited from by installing your own windows.
Thanks for the reply.
On the measuring, what I'm asking is how critical, are we talking 1/16, a 1/32, 1/4, just how much play do I have?
Like I said some don't open and it's going to be tough to get real accurate.
If I had 500 per window to spend we wouldn't be having this discussion.
The price difference between the 3 brands is only about 500 bucks.
Is a 1/4 stop enough or do I need to beef that up?
Nothing personal but I don't need a contractor to do what I am more than capable of doing myself. And with what they charge I could screw up every window in the house and still be ahead.
I know you earn your money, just like everyone else does, but 150-200 or more per window is shameful for my job.
Just my opinion.
Thanks for your help!
