Re: Spare parts for White Corona 4000 series Schuco windows

I totally agree HomeSealed, if I give the measurements to someone in the trade they should be able to make me a triple pane glass pack with a decent spacer in it. I would much prefer that over an aluminum spacer with cheap glass. If you guys know of anyone who would be willing to do that, I have the...

Re: Spare parts for White Corona 4000 series Schuco windows

Thanks a lot for all your help and replies. You are right - the glass companies are still using outdated aluminum spacers and the glass will be very basic. Such a bummer, but I guess I should stop complaining and be thankful the entire window doesn't have to be replaced. With the cold temperatures r...

Re: Spare parts for White Corona 4000 series Schuco windows

Thank you both! I was in contact with Carole (who is awesome by the way, very helpful) and she advised to contact two glass shops in my area - Manchester Glass in Manchester, CT and Capitol Glass in West Hartford, CT. I will check and see what they have to offer. I should be able to tell right away ...

Re: Spare parts for White Corona 4000 series Schuco windows

Thanks for the reply, do you happen to know what type of shop might be able to re-glaze?

I am in CT, which is where Schuco's headquarters were, but of course I guess that doesn't mean much now :)

I appreciate the help.

Re: Spare parts for White Corona 4000 series Schuco windows

Hi All, Longtime Schuco fan here, in fact this forum led me to purchase Schuco windows a long time ago. I am sorry to bring up a old thread, but I am hoping someone may be able to point me in the right direction. I know Schuco shutdown it's US business. I was disappointed, as I thought they made a g...

Re: Schuco windows channel guide replacements?

Great, thanks a lot for the info :) I sure do miss the company, I see they only do commercial products and solar now...

What are you advising for brands now that Schuco is gone? My friends are always asking me about windows as their houses are all approaching that age.

Re: Schuco windows channel guide replacements?

Dave, while we are on the topic of Schuco and their parts, would you advise on purchasing any spare parts while they are still around? I too have the Corona 4000 (Triples) and they are an awesome window, but would hate to get stuck replacing one because I'm missing a few key parts down the road... C...

Hi Nancy, It really depends upon your preference and how long you are going to stay in the house. I'm in CT and as you know we get some crazy weather these days. Triple pane will help from an insulating factor and from a noise perspective. I tend to think the lower cost windows don't look as nice as...

Rob, That price is very high. You should be able to get that window for about $600-$700 installed. Heres the problem. You are living in a large real estate bubble up in Boston...and the contractors know it. Thus they feel they can get whatever they want for jobs. I would just tell them that you know...

My Schuco Install by A&J Reliable, NY

Hello everyone, I just wanted to echo my AWESOME comments about Schuco windows. I recently went through the entire research process like you are probably going through. Trust me when I say it's not easy and that there are so many slime balls out there it's unbelievable. First let me say I am doing t...

I agree....HipKat go peddle your over priced FJB windows elsewhere. I will never do business with FJB and FJB is a total RIP OFF to the consumer. I was quoted over a $1000 PER WINDOW for a Schuco window and found another dealer that did just as good a job for HUNDREDS LESS. FJB NEEDS TO STOP RIPPING...

Well, I appreciate the good words on the windows I sell. Now, before you go shooting the messenger, err, sales rep, keep in mind: I don't set the prices. AND, I try to work with the people I see as best I can, but I need to make SOMETHING for myself...... Also, selling windows, or selling anything ...

Re: Schuco Quote took my breath away!

Last night I had an FJB salesman give me a quote on windows that came to $27,000 for 15 windows!! However, if I agreed to order right away he could do me a favor and piggy-back my order to a "commercial" order which would reduce the cost to $17,000. I am in New York State. I have read the informati...

Re: reply

First of all.... if you are going to sell em'... learn how to spell em'... it's Schuco. "Schuco" doesn't rattle anyone, as a matter of fact, it's becoming the most respected window on the market.... it's only the actions of a few specific dealers that connect the reason of caution to the brand. I h...

Double Hung, Triple Pane, Krypton, White, Half Screens.
