Re: After Install Questions

It wouldn't hurt to send them the photos to ask them to clean it up a bit when they come back out.... I wouldn't wait until they come back to address the missing window as they will be unprepared and may put up more resistance. Other than not being insulated I'd say overall those things are very ea...

Re: After Install Questions

Most guys installing Simonton from ABC Supply are roofers that sell a window job here and there, but too late to change that decision. I would have added stops (shoe or something along those lines) around the window perimeter to cover the drywall cut back as opposed to the fat caulk bead. As far as...

Re: After Install Questions

To be honest, most companies dont do any painting or touch up painting. A one man show may do something like that. Also, close up pics tend to exaggerate small imperfections that are more than acceptable. A hole the size of a pin can appear large if a picture is taken very close up with a phone. Th...

Re: Design recommendation for 88in x 72in window with top arch

Gosh. I didn't even know dp20 windows exist...what a surprise you are having. I'm in the same boat so I feel you. I thought window manufacturers don't publish anything if it went down that low. Me neither. The contractor simply trusts ABC supply to enter correctly the data in the computer and the a...

CMR= center meeting rail= where two sash meet. System are built to handle standard values, you have to know the options items to work around special circumstances. 88" or 72" is wide for an unattached unsupported slider head frame. But a support mull would for sue make it doable. I do not...

Re: Design recommendation for 88in x 72in window with top arch

Sorry for my question but what is the CMR? Do you mean that the top/picture window bottom frame would be thicker to include extra support? What is we increase the height of the slider from 30in to 44in and reduce the height of the picture from 58in down to 44in, would it help to reduce the weight of...

Re: Design recommendation for 88in x 72in window with top arch

I feel like the project manager let the customer tell their preference then they load it into their supplier system who customize it for them. My project manager sent me the answer from the representative at ABCSupply to be transparent since he couldn’t answer himself. Fortunately with the windows d...
