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: OKNA 500 vs 800 replacement windows

In my opinion, yes. The 800 looks nicer with the handle and there is a good bit more material it in. It is super strong and I always want to defer to the stronger product in that comparison.

OKNA 500 vs 800 replacement windows

I’ve been following these forums which have led me to Okna windows. I’m replacing 35 windows, 4 are casement, 2 pictures, and 29 double hung. Seems like both the 500 and 800 series are great windows with not too much of a difference at least from an efficiency ...

... rest are single hung. $13,200. Told me that their house brand window, Traditions, is NT, and is about 10% more. Cardinal IG units installed is ~$4,500 so unless that price came down a lot, I can't see doing windows. Any thoughts or comments are welcome.

Re: structural support for picture window.

The 500 vs 700 thing may just be a misinformed sales guy.

On the mulls, you could pry off one of the mull caps to verify that there is no stud in there, but again, it doesn't look like it. Typically the mull would be a bit wider if that were the case.

Re: structural support for picture window.

The 500 pw was part of the quote, I can ask for a revision with a 700 pw. I've attached an interior pic for your review. So far, I'm glad to hear that the frames can be mulled without additional support.

Re: structural support for picture window.

A couple of confusing things here: 1) If your flanking units are Okna 700 casements, the center PW should be in the 700 frame as well. No reason to use a 500 frame, it would look weird with the different exterior profile. 2) Without seeing this ...

Re: Soft-Lite double-hung equivalent to Okna 800

Not really what we would call comparable models in those line ups.

The comparable Soft-Lite window to the Okna EnviroStar (800) is the Soft-Lite Elements.

The Okna 500 is still a bit better than the Soft-Lite Pro, but a more applicable comparison.
