Re: Okna 500 dx estimate

Your contractor is correct. Thats par for the course when you have dry wall returns.

Re: Vinyl window lead time in Philadelphia suburbs

Its was much more of an issue in public housing. Further, i know many contractors who have worked around lead paint for 40 years and not one has issues with lead. Unless your children are chewing on the sills or the walls or the doors for that matter, which i dont see happening, i probably wouldnt w...

Re: Window World 4000 vs Harvey Tribute Windows

I agree, you can do better. Most pro’s here recommend Okna Windows as well as Soft Lite Elements, Sunrise Vanguard.
Do a quick google search for the brand and the state you live in (example- “ xyz brand NJ “ ) and you can easily find a dealer. Most dealers travel within an hour of their location.

Re: Need Replacement Windows, why is this so hard?

Do you want a rep to come to your home, take measurements, and bring a sample in order to give you an accurate quote?
No one will give you a quote over the phone, its impossible and not a good business practice.

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

toddmn, there is no record of him ever doing that we are one of their largest companies and they are not happy. window nerd seems to be the name of his company. basically- “ so and so claims he only did one job with your window and he claims he had 6 QC issues including a cracked weld, is that true?...

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

homeseal, i respect your comment as you are a veteran contributor here. i also agree with you in that a homeowner cannot base a decision on only one installers experience in which case we are referencing “ window nerd” who only used that window for one job only. i look at his comment dubiously for 2...

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

Been using that window for about 5 years. Our company wont do woodgrain options, it can be a pain. Although their woodgrain has a good look. If we absolutely need to do a woodgrain, we will use sunrise since we can use their madera trim but its rare.

we have relied on hotels for far away installs and it gets expensive. that is good pricing, no doubt about that.

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

i find your statement laughable and extremely hard to believe. we dont get 6 QC issues in one year and yet you claim you had 6 in just one order! i dont believe that. we have used the majestic for over 5 years and do a rather large volume and if we ever had recurring qc issues we would easily migrat...
