Re: Okna Window Price Increase? (Northern IL)

As long as the federal reserve artificially holds interest rates down from buying bonds to support an over valued stock market, the weaker the dollar will ultimately get and the higher inflation will become( look at where gold is trading). Inflation is already showing up in the aforementioned exampl...

Re: Okna Window Price Increase? (Northern IL)

Prices for virtually every home improvement product have gone up substantially this past year due to supply constraints. Its only going to get worse as inflation is starting to seep into the economy. Prices for windows, siding, roofing, decking, doors, lumber, metals, tile, oil, and of course the pr...

Re: Great Lakes ComfortSmart vs Provia Endure

option 1 and 2 are pretty equal. I wouldn't put too much emphasis on glass breakage, most companies find a way to replace that free of charge regardless of whether its in the warranty.
option 3 is not an option in my opinion.
what state are you located?

Re: Picking between Zenwindows and Feldco (Milwaukee)

Keep in mind Homesealed is using a much better product and Im quite certain his installers are much more qualified. I don't want to cast aspersions on the other companies but Im wondering if they are just using sub contractors. Have you had a chance to compare products? Its pretty much apples and or...

Re: Vytex Windows - Company Being Sold?

If Vytex does get sold you have no way of knowing what kind of cultural changes could occur within the company. The other company ( WOW ) has a proven track record in every conceivable category. I certainly understand not wanting "to leave any stone unturned" but with WOW, you don't need t...

Re: Vytex Windows - Company Being Sold?

News to me ( if true ). That being said, its quite common. If it is sold, everything usually remains the same and its usually an investment company. If I was a vytex dealer would I rather it not be sold? Of course.. But in the end, its common although I would be shocked considering its a family owne...

Re: Window Replacement - South of Atlanta

Couldn't of said that better myself. Knowing how to properly bid a job is extremely important and not doing so is w...

Re: Decent quote? - Windows and Door - ProVia

Im not trying to be rude but perhaps you shouldnt be concerned with how much money a contractor is making unless of course you can share your own tax returns to the contractor. Its very intrusive. i would never allow a customer to ask such questions.

Re: Provia Endure vs Aspect vs Soft-lite pro - Please help !!

There are more differences between the Endure and the Aspect, not just the tilts. The Endure is a heavier, stronger window.
The price he gave you is already super low, i dont know how he would come in lower on the Endure.

Re: Provia Endure vs Aspect vs Soft-lite pro - Please help !!

The Endure is a step above the Aspect and the Soft Lite Pro. What is your pricing on the Endure?
Are you getting grids?

You sure all that noise isnt coming from the big mouth of Kamala Harris ? If thats the issue, vote her out of the senate. Lol Laminated glass is the best at reducing noise. Milgard and Anlin are pretty well regarded on the west coast. As far as “ being bulky”, thats very subjective. I dont know if m...

I have two friends that both had pools put in their backyards 2 years ago. One guy over paid for his project and everytime i ask about it, he complains about how much he paid. However, the work is great and each time people come to his home, someone always compliments him on how nice his backyard lo...

Re: Soft Lite Element vs Slocomb vs Window World?

The 500 is a very good window but the Okna 800 does have more structural features and is also a bit more robust. Its not just about looks and woodgrain options. The Okna 600 is similar to the 800 and also has some more engineering features that make the window stronger than the 500 series in my view...

Mail man I would start off by asking if he would make a deal with you.
