Re: Okna for sound abatement in South Jersey

https://www.replacement-windows.com/windowbb/viewtopic.php?t=10809 Okna does have a sound control glass option that is as good at the laminated glass and less expensive. It's been tested in their 600 series window and I think is available in that series as well as the 800 and EVO. Checking with a l...

Where did the time go?

Re: Best choice from these options

Can't add much to what HomeSealed said already...but just thought I'd chime in so that you see his remarks are spot on with regards to some degree of consensus amongst pros in the industry.

Like HomeSealed said, inspection from someone qualified before, is going to be your best bet.

Re: I need a really good DH replacement window

Is that technology really done now? Last I had heard, it was still not readily available or proven to be dependable. If it is, it really would be the best route to go.

Re: need advice on quotes/windows okna v. sunrise v4500 v. provia endure

Yes and Yes. I like the 600 for the small offset in price.

And the 2nd installer talking about seal failures is predictable, but BS. The 600 definitely the more stout product here and worth the 20% premium in my estimation.

Re: Replacement windows for sound reduction

Okna does have STC data on their laminated glass as well as their offset glazing option. Ask your rep/company for the data and they should get it for you. While I like the laminated, the offset glass does have a slightly better STC rating (1 point). It is a bit cheaper than laminated as a comparativ...

The Simonton is "OK" as is the Radience. But there are better options out there.

Re: Need help - questioning an installation of Okna 800 windows

Probable could have bent a bit of positive slope into that sill cap, but that is going over the J-channel in this case. To you first question, that is correct. There is no way to really "flash" the windows here until you remove the siding or at least 4" of trim around the window openi...

Re: Need help - questioning an installation of Okna 800 windows

Can you post up a picture? The reality is that short of removing the vinyl siding, certainly an option but not one that most homeowners will want to incur, there isn't any applicable "flashing" that will go from the new window and tie into the drainage plane of the home. As far as the wate...

Re: Sliding Door Seal / Draft Problem

Doors are designed to have a bit of play along that interlock so that the door can grow or move along that line. Have you checked to see if you get the door centered, i.e. right in the sweet spot, that it engages both interlocks and provides a relatively tight air seal along both sides? If so...get ...
