Re: Window Replacement Options in Houston

Why not just call Randy at Ultra Windows and see if he will come down to your neck of the woods. Certainly seems close enough.

Re: Laminated vs Painted vinyl

I used to be in the anti-paint camp when it came to vinyl, but we have installs that are nearly 20 years old at this point that look as good as the day they went up. I am a believer.

Re: Quote for Okna 600 Replacements

The 800 does have a slightly larger master frame on it, but you would be pressed to be able to tell the difference. The numbers are actually reflective of where they fall in the series line up. The 500 is better than the 400, the 600 better than the 500, and the 800 better than the 600. The 600 is g...

Re: Are storm windows a thing of the past?

You are right that they probably preserved your wood windows. Actually...you are 100% right.

Re: Vinyl Replacement Windows in STL
