Okna 500 vs 600 series

I have estimates for 28 windows of around 19 k for the 500 series and from another vendor for 23 k for the 600 series. Is the 600 worth the extra cost?

Re: Okna 500 dx estimate

The only time we don't tend to perform aluminum trim coil mitering of the head cap is on trim board capping in which the top board face width really exceed the width of the leg trim boards like in historic homes. We have older cedar clap board sided homes in my area with lot's of butt joints to all ...

Re: Okna 500 dx estimate

Its not uncommon to have mitered trim on the top, not as much on the bottom/sill. Most commonly (at least in this area), a brickmold bend gets mitered top corners where flat trim like yours is cut square. Your installer may be concerned about whatever the trim is being installed over, where he can p...

Re: Okna 500 dx estimate

HomeSealed, my last question. :)

Is it possible to have mitered corners on the coil trim? The installer is coming to the house to do the work next week and in the discussion of work that needs to be done, he mentioned that mitered corners are not recommended. Is it true?

Thank you!

Re: Okna 500 dx estimate

Thank you, HomeSealed!

The greatest challenge is to get the installers back. I have not been successful so far. They keep promising and never schedule. After a year of promises I guess I have to pay for the job that needed to be done in the first place.

Re: Okna 500 dx estimate

+1. I'd add that there is some fudge in the way that the seals are designed so being slightly out of square probably won't affect performance (locking smoothly is a fair indicator), however it would be best to get corrected.

Re: Okna 500 dx estimate

Will likely require cutting it loose and reinstallation of the window. Not a big deal and the window is more than capable of being uninstalled and reinstalled.

Re: Okna 500 dx estimate

It is out of level. My question is this acceptable or the window has to be reinstalled? Will it affect window performance? How difficult would it be to remove caulk and coil and what about foam insulation? Does it have to be removed as well to reposition the window?

Thank you.
