Re: Repair vs Replace?

Re: Laminated vs Painted vinyl

What kind of vinyl are you painting? A window? If so, the painting that is done to windows is a completely different process than what you can deploy at the home. That being said, Sherwin Williams does have a product that you can use to paint vinyl and is specifically designed for that substrate.

Re: Windows: Marvin Fiberglass vs. Okna uPVC?

Honestly, to my surprise, we've had ZERO issues with the darker painted windows from Okna. Never really thought that the paint would hold up this well, when first released, but we have jobs that are approaching 17 years old that look, basically, brand new. Price and performance = Okna Most Steel Win...

Re: Provia front door pricing eval

That's a bit more of a premium from a steel to fiberglass than I normally see, but perhaps those more modern doors are subject to a bit more engineering in the fiberglass slab. If you aren't worried about denting the door, the steel should be just fine.
