+1

In the car world (i.e. horsepower), we say there is no "Replacement for Displacement".

In the exteriors world, installation makes the install. Thankfully, HomeSealed is going to have the best in class products along with the installations.

Re: Sears vinyl windows?

Any pictures? The "Sears" window was made by several different folks over the years and they merely put their name on the product and sold it.

Not sure you "need" a Pella quote if you have a few others.

Post up some updates once the others come rolling in with the details.

Re: Window Trim Shrinking?

Pictures #2 and #3 are normal in terms of fitment. Picture #1 was miss-cut at the factory. Ask them for some new glazing bead that you can pop in.

Re: Simonton, Ply Gem or Alside

+1. The foam and utility of it all depends on the extrusion and design of the window. With regards to which is better...the injected closed cell polyurethane will have a slightly higher R-Value, but the human component for error in a closed cavity fill (trick installation to get 100% right) makes me...

Sunrise is certainly available as should Soft-Lite be.

I would be cautious with the friend of a family member. That has the potential to end poorly and take down a family relationship in the process.

Re: Simonton 5050 vs Softlite Bainbridge...looking for advice.

Bainbridge is a decent window. As mentioned the LS and Elements are light years ahead though.

Re: Insulated Glass Units - Dallas

Most insert application are done in a manner so as to not require drywall work.

I am sure Randy is around and can comment with some familiarity given that he is out of Houston and knows the Texas landscape as it pertains to window suppliers and products.

Re: Performance Grade

It is a good indication of the windows ability to sustain wind load and driving rain.

It is a good summary measurement of the windows overall strength, as an assembly, and its sturdiness.

Re: Window Quote Help

Good catch HomeSealed. We have seen some of that around these parts of late as well.

Definitely vet this guy well. That price is really below levels that are sustainable in our market.

At that point and at that price, you have roof for spacer upgrades if you so desire. That is a crazy low number.

Re: Is this window glazing?

That is part of the glazing bead. Tough to say as to where to get. Can you find out the maker of the window? That is the best place to start.
