Re: What's a good casement replacement window to use in EC Kansas?

That nice to know $44K, what would it sell for today might be relavent, but maybe not. The market in you area will determine the cost. I my area SE PA, a single CA max 96 UI by Okna with a standard install would be $900. My original 3bdrm 1.5 bath in the Philly suburbs cost $145K in 1988. It would n...

Re: Window leaking...

If the water is infiltrating the sash. You should be able to duplicate the leak with a garden hose. If it is coming around the glass and pushing up over the glazing bead, the fix might be to deglaze, clean and reglaze. That means take the glass out of the sash, clean the glazing sealant or glazing t...

Re: Am I missing something? Quote review

I would take the 600 over the 500 if the installing company is good. Is the $2200 a mistake?

Re: Window leaking...

Can you make it happen with a garden hose from the exterior? Are these single or double hung? Usually water only on the lift rail is condensation. If it water infiltration you should find a entry point above the lift rail, typically at the head/top of the window. It is not normally the window that l...

Re: "Replacements" for Attached Townhouse

The numbers say there is something not being compared properly.
You need to uncover what that is. You may need clarification from both companies.

Re: Am I missing something? Quote review

The question is with the advice from several pros that have no financial stake is do you want to be complaint #5? Another way of saying it are you rich enough to afford doing it twice. Like DEMike our minimum choice is the 600. The 400 would only be for a flip. You have basically 100% advice to go w...

Re: Install Gone Wrong - Non-paintable Silicone

I am sure you are discouraged. Hang in there and have them do it right.
Hard to believe they would leave it that way since this is supposed to be a fix.

Re: "Replacements" for Attached Townhouse

If I run numbers for a twin inert vs a full tear I come up with a 33% difference. But that does not include dropping siding. For that I would probably be double. There is something that does not compare. $2800 vs $6000. I can believe the $6000 but not the $2800. The only way the $2800 makes sense is...

Re: Install Gone Wrong - Non-paintable Silicone

That looks like off gassing of foam.
Did they clean off the clear silicone, foam, and then caulk?
If so they did not wait for the foam to cure ( can take hours depending on the type and thickness of the foam) before they caulked.

Re: "Replacements" for Attached Townhouse

Yup that is true of most companies. Contact the the contractors you have from any of the mfgs and ask them if they do both just as easily? You could also ask if they have a technical sales rep instead of just a sales rep. If some ask us that ? then Brett or I go, but not Kristin, she is a great cari...

Homesealed nailed it. "My best recommendation is to use a company that does both and will offer the installation best suited for your home."

We enjoy doing both.

Re: Install Gone Wrong - Non-paintable Silicone

Such a shame, easy to avoid problem. A matching beige Quad Max or equal would have made things sweet. We use silicone most of the time. When we know a contrasting paint will be used we use something paintable. Toods advice to do one and see the results seems like a safe way to proceed. theWindowNerd
