Re: Good dealers in south Jersey?

For sure DE Mike is the guy to call.
He is super busy but worth the wait. If Mike will do your windows you will find no one better. He is fussier than we are.

Re: Help with new windows

I like 1/2", 3/4" or 1" foam.
Problems crop up with trim being recessed instead of proud or flush. Good siding crew can work it out. Excellent siding crews are as hard to find as excellent window installers.

Re: Help with new windows

I agree with Brando and others that should WOW service your are to contact them. Also I agree that now is the time to capitalize on doing full frame replacement.

Re: HELP - Quality vs Price

Does it get cold or drafty where you live? I would not suggest a window with an AL above .05 . Since you can not get past the lower cost of the other way go for it. Hope it works out for you. I am confident you will be happy. I have had some budget customers that were simple to deal with, for them t...

Re: HELP - Quality vs Price

Welcome. Great questions. Two really: Installation Product selection Can a home owner or their friend do as good a job as a pro. Maybe, but more than likely not.

Re: Patio door and basement windows questions

If the windows can be done as awning. The function and size will not meet egress. The size issue may preclude any of your choices from meeting legal requirements for egress. So I am not sure if it is a relevant thought. If your opening RO is 32" x 18" nothing is going to make that egress except to c...

Re: Would Appreciate Your Opinion on this Quote

Your DH are on the narrow side, so less an issue.
The picture window and radius top should not be an issus, they do not operate.
