Re: Alside Proline 2200 vs Sunrise Essentials

... got the two following quotes for 16 double hung, 3 sliders, and 4 basement hoppers. Do they sound reasonable? Essentials: ~$10,900 Vanguard: ~$16,500

Re: Okna 500 vs 600 (or 800)

I have had customers like a plainer looking exterior, flat with bevel.
The Okna is not a bevel it is a cove and bead.

It really depends on the levels of the bevels.

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)

What I mean is my personel experience is different. Have never once had a customer say I love all the fancy bevels or say do you have a windows with a little more bevel?
I personally dislike them as well.

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)

I’m not sure I would call triple paned windows sound reduction windows , but perhaps an improvement. They do not do any better than a dual pane with dissimilar glass thickness. Even a standard dual pane can often reduce sound cover what you have. Either way the data is out there and what to recommen...

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, ...

Re: Okna 500 vs 600 (or 800)

If we are doing anything with the client requesting noise attenuation, we use the 800 for the following reasons: 800 has the lowest air infiltration rating and a window that leaks less air will also leak less noise 800 is also the most robust frame and laminated glass is heavy so it is better to run...

Re: Okna 500 vs 600 (or 800)

It will depend more on the glass package than the brand.
I’d choose a Good brand and reputable company(800 is excellent choice) then choose the appropriate glass package

Hello, we are looking to put soundproof (noise reduction windows) and were recommended OKNA 800 by one of the local dealers. Are Okna 800 actually reduce noise significantly or that dealer just wanted to sell it to us? Thank you

Re: OKNA 500 vs 800 replacement windows

I agree with the others, the 800 is superior. That price is on the low end of what you may find these days for a window that performs on that level, so it makes it an easy choice for me in this case... There are companies installing that window for 2x's that price every day, I'd jump on that deal if...
