Re: Looking for noise suppression

Are the IGUs the same overall thickness. The low frequency drone of the traffic usually takes a bit of extra airspace to help with.

Can they flip that IGU and put the laminated glass light on the outside facing lite?

Re: ProVia Endure custom vinyl window

Where is the home? Those two won't usually be on the top 5 recommendations list for most of the pros that deal in vinyl.

Re: Log home replacement windows

Saw that recent movie (Knives Out - Good movie FYI), and he looks great. Does not look like Miami Vice was 30+ years ago.

Just curious, does the guy building the log cabin have the last name Crockett ?
I think the original information and post might be a "crock", but I am not sure about the builder.

Re: Log home replacement windows

Answers: 1. Sizes are dictated by the openings and removal application. Typical rule of thumb is for a 1/4" cutback on the height and width of the window size for shimming and plumbing. 2.

Re: Alside Proline 2200 vs Sunrise Essentials

The Vanguard quote sounds about normal and the Essentials sounds low. Same contractor?

If you have every handled or unloaded an Essentials off of a truck vs. a Vanguard, you will feel $200 per unit difference.

What he said.

Seriously though...if you look at the Essentials next to a Vanguard, you won't understand how both windows are made by the same company and how they could put their name on an Essentials when they produce something like the Vanguard. They are WORLDS apart.

Re: Alside Proline 2200 vs Sunrise Essentials

Even in the cases of short term usage projections, I find that folks are both happier and get a better ROI on their window selection if they go with a good mid-range product vs. an entry level. By all accounts, both products in question would fit the "entry range" descriptor and in this case, occupy...

Re: Okna 500 vs 600 (or 800)

If we are doing anything with the client requesting noise attenuation, we use the 800 for the following reasons: 800 has the lowest air infiltration rating and a window that leaks less air will also leak less noise 800 is also the most robust frame and laminated glass is heavy so it is better to run...

Re: Sunrise in DFW

I wasn't aware they had an 0.02 on their air number. That must be new, but everything else looks pretty solid. Sunrise is one of the often recommended brands.

Re: Phillips window warranty?

Tory,

Most times you are, as they say...SOL. Most times they will buy the business, but not the liabilities.

No harm in calling them, but I wouldn't be too optimistic.
