Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

When I weld metal it likes to melt, I find welding plastic , ABS to be specific easier. Polypropylene is a bit harder and I haven’t done PVC .

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

In this corner we got the vet with 39 years experience , board favorite with 31 fights 18 by KO, in the other we got the newbie out of know where, history unknown , talks the talk not sure how he walks but beeming with confidence. I’ll be taking bets on the contractor board!

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

Travel time and hotel is irrelevant IMO. You got comparable bids and we all know Homesealed here , prices are inline with the travel and the answer is clear.

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...

I’d have to agree with Jhoney, those comments were spot on.

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

I do like the ground welds and finger pulls on the screens.

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

I think we would have to put it a step down from Okna 800 and Soft-Lite Element and Andersen Woodwright inserts since it leaks a 100% more air.

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...

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.
