Re: Narrowed down to three choices

triple pane is good depending on where you are located, but I like a pros and cons approach. Not a fan of the guys that only sell it or refuse to sell it at all. polaris tw is pretty nice but i don't like how that company sounds. okna 500 is great. Sl Elite is great too. Like the other guys said it ...

Re: What size window to order?

The guy that is going to install this should be measuring. If its you, and you don't know how to measure it, you shouldn't be installing it.

Re: Vinyl Double Hungs in Ohio for $500 ish??? Screen options? VT and glass surface area... mind numb!

When I moved back here from SF it was an adjustment to the low pricing structure and how many people who should have had solid middle class livings that were scraping by because they undercharged and did not mark up stuff... just passed it through... this pump cost me $134 so I will charge you $134...

Re: Vinyl Double Hungs in Ohio for $500 ish??? Screen options? VT and glass surface area... mind numb!

I had to look at the date on your post, I thought it must be at least 10 years old with that pricing talk. Is it possible that you may find a great window and great installation from a great company that will be in business in the future to serve you? I suppose so, but its also possible that a macar...

Re: Leak in window

I don’t think there is a drip cap just the window. I will do the hose test, that’s all good info. I was told no flashing was used just screws and sealant around replacement window.. Thank you You wouldnt use flashing tape with a replacement window install. It would only be used with a new construct...

Re: Replacing windows in Chicago area - Brand & Installer reviews

Oh gosh Uncle Eddie....dont be so salty! I promise I won't come crawling back to you, groveling for forgiveness when my provia windows fall out of my house and my family freezes to death. Salty about what? I told you that you were moving the right direction earlier by dropping the true bottom feede...

Re: Replacing windows in Chicago area - Brand & Installer reviews

Exactly why I went with Mikes comments. He probably has more experience with Pro-Via Windows then the rest of the Pro’s here combined. Mike's comments: Every order has QC issues. Likes their bm system because they screw the welds up and it covers them Guys at factory are hourglassing and bowing sas...

Re: Replacing windows in Chicago area - Brand & Installer reviews

The OP has also stated a favorable relationship and respect with the Pro-Via dealer. And that translates to qulaity excactly how? I have a favorable relationship and respect with my dentist, but I'm not going to let him check my prostate just because he's called Dr., has a lab coat and rubber glove...

Re: Replacing windows in Chicago area - Brand & Installer reviews

Perhaps being a little harsh on a homeowner that has done some valid research and has taken the advice. Clearly they are not trying being to go cheapest route possible but do not want to be paying Renewal prices either. Even Mike has said the Pro-Via is probably the best choice with the information...

Re: Replacing windows in Chicago area - Brand & Installer reviews

I'd be more concerned about the quality of the window than the screen frame. Sounds like you are moving in the rigth direction though with provia at the bottom end of your choices instead of the top

Re: Soft-Lite Elements vs. Renewal by Anderson

I thought my analogies were pretty good, i'm guessing that you secretly liked them as well or your panties wouldn't be in a bunch. Sounds like the OP made the right choice either way.
