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...

How long have you been offering Majestic Windows? Did you ever use their woodgrain?

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 ...

Re: structural support for picture window.

We have done fixed windows that wide with no issues. The total width of that unit exceeds the width in which Okna will ship mulled. We field mull all the time. A field mull is no different than a factory mull. That said, your total width is 128”.. why not do a conventional 1/4- 1/2- 1/4 ( 32-64-32 )...

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

I forget what extrusion the Ideal “ Majestic” uses. However, its very strong and has a very nice looking sash design.

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

shgc has nothing to do with how good a window is. shgc is based on a specific glass package. both okna and Ideal “majestic” offer various shgc ratings. typically, a glass package with a low shgc will render a lower VT rating. one window wouldnt be better than the other based on shgc.

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

both Majestic and Okna are good windows and nice looking.. Ideal “majestic” is nice looking and very efficient, so is the okna. Mike is a pro that serves your area, i would try contacting him. Either window will serve you well.

Re: Insulated Glass Units - Dallas

When you start looking for cheap alternatives you are making a big sacrifice on quality hence impending issues.
Unless its a rental or some kind of house flip.

Re: Opinions on Atrium 8700 windows.

Agree. When we say atrums “ higher end” we are only comparing to other atrium products which isnt saying much.
Okna is in a totally different class and much higher end than anything atrium offers in my opinon.
