Re: Big project - quotes all over the place

Another recommendation for HomeSealed. Replacing your windows is a big project, and one that should only be done once. Doing it right the first time is a no-brainer, and you won’t find a better company to do business with.

Re: Low E on 4th surface; good or bad?

I second the recommendation on contacting Windows on Washington. Replacement windows, if well chosen, should be a one-time purchase. Getting the glass package right is critical to your long-term satisfaction with the windows you choose. Windows on Washington has the knowledge and experience needed t...

Re: Sunrise dealer in DFW

They may be the only one. Was it a very large state-wide company? I thought they had a couple of smaller dealers there, but maybe not.

Re: Austin, Tx Replacement Windows

If by sleek, you mean the common definition of shiny and smooth, then vinyl will fit the bill just fine. Sunrise is available in the Austin area, and will probably be your best choice in a quality product. While there are better performing brands, none of them are available there. Texas homeowners a...

Re: Sunrise in DFW

I agree with Wow. It’s probably one of the best options for homeowners in DFW. Interesting that the sales rep never gave you a model name.

Re: Insulated Glass Units - Dallas

DY tba windows will typically be more expensive than vinyl windows. The aluminum glazing bead is substantial and holds up well to hail stones.

Re: Window & Patio Door Quote Compare

Sunrise Restorations - very good window, but not on par with Soft-lite or Okna Pella 250 - wouldn’t recommend it Renewal by Andersen - good looking window, but subpar performance and overpriced Soft-lite Imperial LS - best of the windows you’ve had quoted, a great window Provia Endure EN600 - no per...

Re: slider count question

From the sound of it, you’re replacing 8 double hung windows with 4 sliding windows.

Re: Window & Patio Door Quote Compare

I would recommend contacting HomeSealed as well. Not only does he offer some of the best products in the industry, he installs them all using methods that far exceed the average contractor. HomeSealed enjoys a stellar reputation in the industry, and you’ll find them to be among the most knowledgeabl...

Re: Insulated Glass Units - Dallas

WoW nailed it with great advice on all counts. Cardinal makes one of the best IG units, but they do have QC issues with tempered glass out of the Waxahachie plant. Regardless, that’s who I would use.

Burris vinyl is fine for a home you intend to sell soon.

Re: Simonton, Ply Gem or Alside

"Just because the Simonton is an older design does not mean it it is made from a lower grade of vinyl or. Is using cheap part"

Who said that it was?

"I do not see it’s performance shrinking anymore than the Okna or some other top performer"

Who said it would?

Re: Simonton, Ply Gem or Alside

One more in agreement with the other guys. Sunrise’s Essentials line shouldn’t be in consideration at all. Dealers who offer it are merely piggy-backing on the reputation of the primary window lines to sell a low-end model that is sub-par in every way. Simonton is a poor performer from the start and...

AGM Windows is a great company to deal with in New Jersey, if they service your area. I’d recommend contacting them.

Re: Pella 350 vs Okna 800 (What to do?)

If your windows are being installed with nailing fins, the interior trim will have to be removed in order to use spray foam to air seal. It’s worth doing, since this is the time to get it right.
