Re: Okna New Construction - bottom center bowed?

Yeah. Mostly not necessary if you aren't planning on water getting into the RO. Certainly not needed for the window to drain properly.

While high on pragmatism, makes setting, shimming, and creating a properly supported substructure for the window much harder and mostly unnecessary.

Re: Okna New Construction - bottom center bowed?

Correct. Sill noising is not pertinent to the operation of the window as indicated here.

Re: Okna New Construction - bottom center bowed?

Can be "normal". We see in it in the sill nosing as that is the thinnest part of the window. Most times you can massage it down with some force and many times they will "lay down" with a few temperature cycles in the summer.

Re: Replacing large PW but leaving attached double hung

If you cap the remaining double hungs, you should be able to mitigate the visual offset. Are the windows to be left in place equip with Low-e?

Re: Question on bow windows pricing in NJ

Massive window. Between the installation and unit frame and install...it's not that out of whack.

Handling those monsters is a PITA and requires some definitive logistics.

Re: Window Recommendations in the Deep South?

+1 to HomeSealed comment.

Definitely the front runner product and generally speaking, a good commentary on a company when they use a good window as well.

Re: Window Recommendations in the Deep South?

Can you re-post the information without the garden window if they line item'ed it? The reality is that they are super expensive and that will drive price, by a good bit.

Re: Okna DH800 install question

That's nice that they are going to help out with the extra steps. Like I mentioned above, the install that was executed is considered an AAMA acceptable application. If they are are pulling siding and installing new J-channel, if they wanted to fabricate a type of "nailing flange" made out...

Re: Okna and vinycl siding installation question

Depends on the depth of the siding. If it will fit into the integral J-channel, I would use that location. Some foam backed and thicker siding profiles will not fit in the integrated J, and therefore require their own.

Re: replacement windows review and recommendation NYC

I think they mostly deal in Okna vinyl, but they have other options as well.

Re: Okna 800 Series (Enviro Star) vs Anlin Del Mar (Houston, TX)

Replied on the Green board but there aren't really any more superior options than Ultra and the 800 series. You've got a great option there.
