Re: HELP - Quality vs Price

As your accountant the cheap window may make sense depending on how long you live at your home. As a professional I concur with the others. As Clint Eastwood I would have to say “ are you feeling lucky?”

Re: Patio door and basement windows questions

I d go with your installers recommendations. The bulk unless of the UltraWeld is mostly aimed at there double hungs as compared to other vinyl brands but I don’t know how they compare to the Kensington’s. I would say the slider would be better but you may have to remove both sashes, and yes the awni...

Re: Austin area - many questions about replacement windows (long)

The Simonton lawsuit is interesting, thanks for making me aware of it. I am not familiar with makes there glass packs but it seems like a bit of there problem is dealer related. One reason I like Cardinal glass is they are very quality control oriented. If there is there a failure with glass packs t...

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)

What I mean is my personel experience is different. Have never once had a customer say I love all the fancy bevels or say do you have a windows with a little more bevel?
I personally dislike them as well.

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: Okna 500 vs 600 (or 800)

It will depend more on the glass package than the brand.

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: 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.
