Re: Whole house windows replacement in DFW

I would reach out to Randy at “Ultra Windows” and see if he serves your area. If he does, he would be my first choice by far. You will not find a better window contractor. He is also a super nice guy.

Re: Replacement quotes for 1960s brick ranch

I can tell you Okna beats those other brands by a large margin in terms of both quality and efficiency. This is where the temptation of cheap prices come back to bite homeowners a few years down the road.
Be smart about this, it’s a large purchase and a meaningful one at that.

Re: Curious on Quoted pricing

Your original quote from 2 years ago was extremely low even by 2020 standards. The price inflation plaguing our industry is unprecedented and affecting virtually every other industry as well. We can thank the federal reserve for that for keeping rates near zero for way too long. They flooded the sys...

Re: Soft-Lite- Double Hung- $2873 per window?

Saying a company is “ screwing its customers” just because you dont feel you benefit personally is a bit unfair and borders being ridiculous. Having only a few dealers in certain area’s is actually smart and helps minimize the “ jack of all trades” type contractors from ruining the good name of a pr...

Re: MI Windows & Doors /Sunrise acquisition

If Harbor Freight purchased Snap On................ You will be fine with regular windows or patio sliders. Do not even consider a bay, bow, or garden window as they changed vendors to build them and the current ones belong in the centerfold of Fangoria magazine. thank you- that stinks as I do have...

Re: MI Windows & Doors /Sunrise acquisition

Sunrise will still be the same high quality product and MI will still be the same lower end product. I wouldnt worry.

Re: okna 500dx vs Softlite Imperial Elite

They are not standard sizes, they are common sizes. All replacement windows are custom sized. Doesnt make a difference if its 32 x 60 or 33 x 59.

Re: Sill replacement & Window Contractors

Repairing a sill is a very easy fix. I wouldnt base my decision on a full frame tear out on some rotted sills.
Fyi, many consumers mistake chipped paint as sill rot when in fact its just chipped paint.

I have no idea who he is. He says that he wrote 3 or 4 books on windows. I dont know how anyone can write 3 or 4 books on windows unless each book is 3 pages long. Are they window murder mysteries?

Re: Window pricing for MN

I think the soft lite is the better window and soft lite are a very legitimate window manufacturer. Although provia doesnt make a bad window, to me they will always be a door company. I am also not fond of the way they foam fill their extrusion which to me is a joke.
