Re: Provia vs. Seaway

To be honest I saw the Seaway once and it was made very well and I actually like it better than the provia window.
That said, I saw Seaways top window offering. Which Seaway window did you see? Do you know which series?
Im assuming you live near Seaway?

Re: Provia vs. Seaway

Seaway make a good window. Its “ under the radar” so to speak but its a pretty solid offering with some good performance numbers, its certainly better than harvey.

Re: Polaris Thermaweld Plus install

Quality control with a manufacturer has absolutely nothing to do with installation quality, they are completely separate.
There will always be a certain level a variability when it comes to welds on a window , some may seem a tad cleaner than the other and well within the realm of acceptability.

Not sure what area of PA you are in but one of the best installers in PA , “the window nerd”, may serve your area.

Re: Help deciding on vinyl replacement windows

The Polaris “ Ultimate 2” with argon is triple pane and gets a .18 U value. That is a very good number with argon.
Ultimate 2 plus with krypton is a .16.

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...
