Re: Alside Proline 2200 vs Sunrise Essentials

You should have other quality brands in your area, I’d price some of those out. Sunrise does need t make my top 5 regardless of which series, unless we’re talking casements.

Re: Okna 500 vs 600 (or 800)

I’m not sure I would call triple paned windows sound reduction windows , but perhaps an improvement. They do not do any better than a dual pane with dissimilar glass thickness. Even a standard dual pane can often reduce sound cover what you have. Either way the data is out there and what to recommen...

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

Re: Okna Window and Patio door quote in-Line??

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

I would have no problem installing a window with a broken sash weld. All you have to do is replace the sash. It would be a bigger inconvenience to both the window company and home owner to set up a new date to come out. So you called up Majestic and asked if the Nerd has ordered Windows and if there...

Re: Sliding vs Hinged Patio Doors

The hinged doors will have a larger clear opening , especially if both panels operate. This can be a. Issue sometimes. Sliding doors have a higher sill but this can often be lowered With a little additional work. The air infiltration rates are close but I see the Okna coming in higher at 0.06 vs 0.0...
