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.

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

i am going to forward your misleading post to management at Ideal. we have 3 full time sales reps and not one ever had a customer complain about qc issues nor have our installers, or anyone in our shipping dept. im sure there will be a record of your so called 6 QC issues on one order including a cr...

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

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...

Re: Majestic vs Okna 600

our technicians really embrace the Majestic. my lead installer is a 30 year veteran in the industry and they dont get more picky than him when it comes to a window being strong and solid; he installed just about every top brand there is. he absolutely loves the Majestic. the feedback from customers ...

Re: Sliding vs Hinged Patio Doors

both hmi and provia make an air tight door. that said, a high end sliding door( Okna ) may be a tad more air tight.
technically a slider has less of a chance of having issues but we are talking HMI/ provia so you are good.

Re: Sliding vs Hinged Patio Doors

painting a door never looks nearly as good as it does when it comes pre finished, i dont care who paints it.
therma tru is not something i would recommend especially if HMI Doors or Provia is available. therma tru is a budget type door in my opinion.

Re: Sliding vs Hinged Patio Doors

I agree regarding hmi doors or provia, they both make excellent hinged doors. they also come with an option of a sliding screen. therma tru is not something i would install as i dont think its made all that well. its more of a basic contractor type door. most higher end doors come pre finished. go w...
