Re: Okna 500 dx estimate

Yes, I plan on using 100% cellular PVC trim, just around that bumpout window with two side by side. I do not like the look of aluminum coil, it does not adhere to the wood and there is nothing under it, no silicone, water gets to the window behind that coil wrap. Is it possible to get rid of coil wr...

Re: Okna 500 dx estimate

Depends what you mean by "seams". A seam where one flat piece lays over another on the same plane would not be caulked. Corner joints generally are. On the sloppiness factor, express your concerns. I'd try to get a project manager or higher out to take a look, the installer will probably j...

Re: Okna 500 dx estimate

I expect to pay for the PVC trim separately. The siding contractor wants to replace siding above the window trim and PVC trim around the window in one job. As I understand I have to ask the window installer permission to add the trim and they should be installing the trim? Do I need a coil trim on t...

Re: Okna 500 dx estimate

agree. no red flags.
as far as you wanting pvc trim board; unless that was specified in the contract there is no way a company would do that. If you want it, not only would the company have to agree to it, they would need to charge you for it and it is very expensive.I would keep what you have.

Re: Okna 500 dx estimate

Glad to hear that you are liking the windows! As for your questions: - The gap on the inside jamb is just the balance cover. That can be slid up. - Regarding the trim on the twin unit, are you referring to the cedar boards? Is there a plan in place to come back and replace that? I'd be surprised if ...

Re: Okna 500 vs 600

The looks and extra performance of the 800DX are why so many of our customers buy it.
Also my lead mechanics like installing the 800 the best because it is a heavier better built window.

Re: Okna 500 vs 600

+1, the 800 is not bulky at all. All three are pretty good, I'd opt for the 600 over the 500 for the reasons mentioned above.

Re: Okna 500 vs 600

I agree with both assessments. The Okna 600 and 800 both have the same anti drift header interlock i believe.

Re: Okna 500 vs 600

The 800 is not bulky at all, it's only features the slightest visible glass lose than than of the 500/600 platforms. Keep in mind that you were probably looking a very small hand sample. I can ensure you that the 500 installed correctly will not feel cheap or be an issue. ...

Re: Okna 500 vs 600

The Okna 600 and the 800 both have interlocking sills, interlocking headers, and structural reinforcement. The 500 does not have any of those structural enhancement features. Sounds like the guy with the 500 series cannot ...
