Re: Alside Proline 2200 vs Sunrise Essentials

Great feedback above... Sure, anything may be better than your 35 year old window in their current state, however a low end window is not going to be another 35 yr window. Try 10-15. Not only that, while they may be "better", are they worth investing thousands of dollars? IMO, up your budget (perhap...

Re: Okna 500 vs 600 (or 800)

It really depends on the levels of the bevels.

Re: Hoppers, what’s recommended?

I do like the q-lon style v-seal used on the Okna hoppers. This type of window is a total after thought for most manufacturers with cheapo parts. There are some other decent options, but this one is my "go-to".

Re: OKNA 500 vs 800 replacement windows

I agree with the others, the 800 is superior. That price is on the low end of what you may find these days for a window that performs on that level, so it makes it an easy choice for me in this case... There are companies installing that window for 2x's that price every day, I'd jump on that deal if...

Re: Help! window replacement underway serious issues

Looks like they did an "express" type of installation, and with the new frame depth being greater than previous. This has the window sitting proud of the siding... At this point, your best bet is to meet with the management and express your concerns. It sounds so far like they are willing to move/re...

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

Not saying anything about the product in question, but Window Nerd is is a pretty honest and ethical guy. This is a guy that will publicly criticize the very products that he sells if warranted, not a self promoter.... I don't think that one experience that anyone has with a given product should be ...

Re: Window Quote Help

+1, great feedback. You should expect the difference to feel more profound in the winter... You may also want to take a look at your attic for insulation and air sealing.

J honey, I'm flattered that you agree with my post so strongly that you've copy and pasted my comments verbatim, however using the (") button in the upper right corner to quote another contributor is a good and courteous practice. :)

Re: Sliding vs Hinged Patio Doors

Ak, in your location you may be in the service area of AGM Windows & Door. I believe that they carry both Okna and HMI, I'm sure that Paul over there could help you decide which option would be best for your home. Great company, and both of those products are great at what they do, you just need to ...

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

Jeld-Wens. Pretty sure they do this since it is cheaper than upgraded spacers and foam filled . In general, I would disagree on West and North facing windows. West windows get the highest amount of sun and I would consider 366 there. I seem many home get over heated on the west, especially if there...

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

The only place I see anyone pushing a high solar heat gain is Menards. They stick windows on shelf with a 0.30 U and 0.51 solar. If you were to special order you would have to select the glass pack. For me the data is not that clear cut since there are to many variables from house to house, I find ...

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

Homesealed, I agree with what your saying but my point was it is typically not the manufacturer promoting this. Going from what original poster said 366 and similar glass packs may be what he is looking for. I have many jobs in my northern climate where I recommend 366 type glass packages. I have n...

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

Manufacturers typically don’t promote glass packages. From my experience they offer a standard default package . It is up to the dealer in my experience to convey what their knowledge to the homeowners and discuss the available options. My experience has been different Todd, although perhaps it is ...

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

Otto, I'd have to agree with the above comments. If Mike serves your area, the best advice that any of us can give would be to meet with him. A true craftsman and good dude. I'll also mention, only since it wasn't addressed yet, that the lower SHGC number is generally not a good thing in a climate l...
