Re: Window Trim Shrinking?

Never seen a gap that large, even with cheap windows. Wonder if some serviced the glass and botched it.
There should be a sticker in the head of the window frame when the sash is open that gives all the information needed to get the parts. It is not the gold or silver sticker usually white.

Re: Window Quote Help

I would ask for pricing on the ThermalWeld plus, I personally like this unit better than the UltraWeld
The pricing you got is excellent perhaps a little low?

Re: MA - New to Windows, help with brands

You’re pricing could very well be reasonable for materials only depending on which window and option.

Re: Window Quote Help

To be clear, I was assuming the ThermalWeld quote was for the ThermalWeld Plus. The Old ThermalWeld is Now the DynaWeld with a rollformed screen which replaced the ValueSmart.

Re: Window Quote Help

I see no advantage going to the UltraWeld, plus it’s more money. I would consider upgrading to the stainless spacer , maybe triple pane.
What was the difference in warranty?
Pricing seems in the ballpark, but there are no details to judge it by.

Re: Okna 700 Quote

Hard to say on the installed window cost , but the triple pane upgrade is dirt cheap as a stand alone line item.

Re: ProVia, OKNA, Simonton, or Reliabilt

The ProVia seems way to low and the Okna seems way high. I get the feeling I am missing something.

Re: Simonton, Ply Gem or Alside

Seems I am having problems reading between the lines.
I’d say the installation and the company are the cake, the Okna would be the icing.

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.

Re: Simonton, Ply Gem or Alside

If you’re budget is that tight I would have no problem with the 5500. Putting it in the category of “some “ builder grade junk is a bit harsh and incorrect IMO.

Re: Simonton, Ply Gem or Alside

Money down is normal with most, windows are special ordered and non refundable in most cases.
