Re: Alside Proline 2200 vs Sunrise Essentials

Vanguard is much nicer looking, built much stronger, more efficient. Its a much better window and in my opinion, one of the top 5 windows.

Re: Alside Proline 2200 vs Sunrise Essentials

One of the most common responses i hear from a customer is “ im not sure how long i will be living here”. Thats usually a defense mechamism with the hopes that a window company wont try and sell them a more expensive window. That said, the second most common response is “ anything will be better tha...

Re: Alside Proline 2200 vs Sunrise Essentials

The essentials is not highly regarded but the alside is $1000 cheaper. What does that tell you ?

Re: Okna 500 vs 600 (or 800)

In my experience customers like the bevel. Dont get me wrong, some companies have silly looking bevels. However, the soft lite elements/ Ls, Okna, or Sunrise have very slick looking bevels.

Re: Okna 500 vs 600 (or 800)

Not sure what you mean by that but every customer i come into contact with absolutely love’s the exterior bevels on the Okna 600 and 800. I would imagine the feedback would be the same from some of the others.

Re: Okna 500 vs 600 (or 800)

Whenever i have a customer who wants noise reduction, i recommend the Okna 600 or 800 in triple pane. The 600 also gets a .18 ufactor with argon. Another pane of glass equals more mass and combined with a foam filled frame and sash as well as spray foam insulation, noise is definitely reduced. In my...

Re: OKNA 500 vs 800 replacement windows

I agree and prefer the 800. A happy medium without scarificing quality would be to ask for the 600 Eco Pro.

Re: Help! window replacement underway serious issues

I would be more focused on the fact that the owner fixed the problem and the windows look good. The bottom line is the results which seem to look very good.

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

Mike, the lumberyards carry Ideal’s budget window. The Majestic series is a true welded sloped sill with no weep holes. Its a much nicer design. The Majestic is a solid window in my opinion.

Re: Help! window replacement underway serious issues

Whenever you get windows installed, there can always be some degree of variability in terms of install or exterior trim among different homes in the same area. Some homeowners expect their windows, especially the exterior to look exactly like their neighbors and sometimes, for whatever reason, its n...

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

To be honest, i dont think you will find a more efficient window than the Okna. I think you you are getting very good pricing for one of the nicest looking and most efficient windows in the entire industry. The company offering that window ( HomeSealed) has one of the best reputations in the business.

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

Its a beautiful window and considering hotel accomodations, that pricing is more than reasonable. I would also have to add this. You need to keep in mind, anytime they have to make a service trip for any reason at a couple hours away, that is pretty much a full day for a technician or two between tr...

Ak for a sliding patio door i have had a lot of success with Okna, especially with the climate here in New Jersey. my customers really seem to like the okna sliding door. Its built very well and its very air tight. as far as hinged, I like HMI Doors. HMI is very similar to provia but usually with a ...
