Re: Okna 500 vs 600

The looks and extra performance of the 800DX are why so many of our customers buy it.
Also my lead mechanics like installing the 800 the best because it is a heavier better built window.

Re: Wincore 5400 Series Contractor Quote ($24,975)

With out the total scope and takeoff for the project it is very difficult to comment on pricing that would be accurate. For instance are your existing units wood with traditional trim details? Are you doing insert or full frame? Insert is price M, full frame is M + $325. ( primed only standard casin...

Re: Window Replacement

One of the pros, Randy, is the guy for all things TX.
He is in Houston and busy as a one arm paper hanger.
Hopefully he will check in and advise. He likes some NT or DY product.

Many of us were young once, I am beginning to feel "the old as dirt" moniker is starting to fit. I believe HomeSealed is correct that a reasonably profit has to be, if a company is to survive. I long while ago I asked Furman what I should do to help my business. He said raise your price. O...

Re: Polaris? Vinylmax? NE Ohio Quote Questions

Glass packages do not impact AL.

I found it on their website, hidden, I had to drill down to find. Which typically means it is bad.

Ask the sales rep uyou are dealing with to share the structural test report the the units you are considering.

Re: Polaris? Vinylmax? NE Ohio Quote Questions

You always want to see what the AL test results are.
I only looked up the Vinylmax, I would not suggest or use a unit that is .12 AL. You will have drafts.
.05 or less for AL.

Re: Sunrise Vinyl or Pella Impervia Fiberglass

One of the things that encourages me about the group of pros here is Eric's example to help a person that he wont get anything from. I believe this type of human respect, kindness and service is true of all the pros I know on here.

Re: Sunrise Vinyl or Pella Impervia Fiberglass

Both are windows, but in totally different product.
Apples to apples would be Pella vinyl(yuk) to Sunrise( very good to excellent)..
or Pella fiberglass (not my fav) to Marvin Essential fiberglass ( much better product).

Re: Wincore 7700 Vs Sunrise Custom

Oh it adds strength to the sash. Maybe little to nothing in the horizontal deflection of the CMR.

I mostly sell the Okna/Highmark 800 DX, which is standard reinforced, so I would not know issues with a unit without strong construction.

Re: Window Capping

Jen, are you in Philly?
DE Mike or myself might be able to do.
As Brandon said we are all busy, right now newly signed contract are looking at an install date of April or May.
Pictures of the exterior, qty, and color will all help in getting you an estimate.

Re: Wincore 7700 Vs Sunrise Custom

Check to see what the glass thickness available on each is. double strength on the DH and 3/16 on the PW should give ya enough.

trim coil

Who and what do you use for trim coil with white okna windows?
I am currently buying pallets of Berger coil ( this was also Harvey coil). They have 4 whites, none of them a perfect match.
I would also like a heaver coil like G8.
Thx,
