Re: Windows for Atlanta area home

I think that method would only make sense if they were using a finned/ new construction window when the cavity is inaccessible. If it is an insert window there method is dated and not preferred. The pricing looks great and the 800 would be the choice. I’d ask them about foam but my guess they are re...

Re: Aluminum Wrap for brick molding

I’m with Ricky, if company is not comfortable capping your windows correctly, I’d doubt there capabilities in general. It has been industry standard for years. If it is done wrong It will accelerate trim rot.

Re: Aluminum Wrap for brick molding

My house is new construction and capped in aluminum by choice. My other house that I rent was bought in 1993 and was capped in aluminum before well before I bought it. It still looks good and zero issues with rot or water infiltration.

Re: Windows for Atlanta area home

The Imperial Elite/ LS is pretty much the same window as the Element with small differences so it’s right there at the top. The Classic Is would be at the bottom of the list.

Re: Windows for Atlanta area home

I’d put the Element at the top and Vytex and 500 2nd and the Pro-Via last. pricing , installation details and the install could change the order.

Re: Aluminum Wrap for brick molding

The capping should be installed so it doesn’t leak at the top and does get water it it gets kicked out over the sill. The drip cap is the most important and the sill detail is the fail safe.

Re: Windows for Atlanta area home

That pricing is great, as long as the installation company checks out . The Vytex Fortis has solid reviews and has very good performance numbers. If everything checks out these are definitely pre -covid prices and I would jump on it.

Re: ProVia paint match - snow mist

I would just ask them again . They could just email you the paint code. If you know the paint manufacturer you could ask them if they have that paint code in there system

Re: Okna 500 dx estimate

Take a pic on the inside with the sash about 1/4” lower than frame . One with lower sash raise a 1/4 above would help also.

Re: Window and patio door

I’d disagree with shorter lead times being a red flag, many window companies are now way less and I don’t know of any that got to 20 weeks at there worst. I’d put the flag on Sunrise since lead times in general are coming down While there lead times are getting longer. Of course this could all chang...

Re: Seeking advice on replacement windows

I’d say the the Pro-Via is better than the Simonton, both are pretty decent vinyl windows but there are better products out there. The Infinity is different product both material wise and how the product is sold and marketed. I would say it looks better that the other two and performs worse.
