Re: Okna 500 dx estimate

Neither of the installs described are wrong, just different. The one that your contractor is explaining is the most common in this scenario. Mike's install is probably the best, most comprehensive way to do it, but you would see a significant increase in the price for that. At the end of the day its...

Re: Okna 500 dx estimate

Mike, I wish you were closer to Indiana. :-) Thank you for detailed explanation. Should I discuss installation process or fully trust the installer?

Re: Okna 500 dx estimate

If the OKNA 500dx is a non-flanged replacement window it will be sized as a "slip" to fit in between your sheetrock jamb returns, thus the reason for the loss of the jamb return which is now housed by the insert/replacement ...

Re: Okna 500 dx estimate

Some may disagree with me, but personally I'd never choose a company with a one year warranty on workmanship. I'd require all warranties in writing as well. Many obvious installation issues would present themselves within the first year, but others could take a few. Same for parts, if he says that h...

Re: Okna 500 dx estimate

That pricing is fake news. Either they are going to come up with some hidden or forgotten charges, or you are gonna get the taillight warranty and a crappy install

Re: Okna 500 dx estimate

+1. They'll affect the VT more than anything as they reduce the amount of light coming through, but in terms of overall energy efficiency (U value primarily) that difference is too small to even be measured. If you like or need grids for the aesthetics, don't think twice about it.

Re: Okna 500 dx estimate

Do window grids influence window performance numbers? Is it better to choose windows with grids or without?

Thanks

Re: Okna 500 dx estimate

Agree with above, windows first.

As far as the dealer, if they are an established company with good reviews, you should be in good shape. Pricing still sounds crazy, but who knows.

Same here. What advice are you looking for indy500? Is it a very good window? Yes Is the price good? I'd say almost too good to be true, 3 pros have now thought the same. Is the dealer reputable? Not sure, check them out. Google reviews, angie's list, etc. On one hand they offer a good product which...
