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 i...

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

On a side note , what extrusion is the Majestic window based on? They do have some pretty good permanent numbers.

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 no...

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.

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

You will not know if they’ll come down unless you try.
The performance numbers will vary depending on what glass package you use. Okna will have a glass packagage similar , just ask.

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

Is the real question “ Is the Okna 600 worth $256 dollars more per window?”?

Re: Patio Door

I would keep them all the same and use the same dealer as the one doing the windows.

Re: Soft-Lite double-hung equivalent to Okna 800

The Pro is pretty good at what it does, and I would have no problem with that window in my house. 5k is 5k no matter how. Many days you chop it into and the difference in performance numbers is so small it is irrelevant IMO.
For $5200 I bought 2 jet skis on trailer and a nice street bike.

Re: Soft-Lite double-hung equivalent to Okna 800

The step downs are clear but small. The biggest difference will be the installation and the company backing it.

Re: Soft-Lite double-hung equivalent to Okna 800

The top window is the Element for Soft-Lite and the 800, the LS and 600 are a step down.

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?
