Re: Soft Lite Element vs Slocomb vs Window World?

I would immediately scratch MI Windows and Window World from that list. They are not what we would consider quality. MI windows and Window World are for “ budget oriented” customers, not those who want quality and plan on living in their homes for a while. MI and Window World are cheap looking and h...

Re: replacement window installation

It probably has nothing to do with the install. The sill or screen may be a little bowed. Either way the installer could probably fix it.

Re: Garden Window

Garden Windows are also very expensive and customers are sometimes shocked by the cost. (2500-3500 ).

Re: Help with Window World install and capping?

You say that you know window world doesnt have the best reputation but yet you signed a contract anyway?
Cheap prices are cheap for a reason. You have to expect some form of incompetence when you go with a company who markets themselves soley to the price point customer.

Re: Quick Sanity Check - SunRise

Sdl grids are expensive but well worth it. Sunrise do make a nice sdl grid, we actually installed about 10 a few weeks back, although we only use sunrise in certain situations now.

Re: Quality replacement windows other than Okna?

Toddinmn, do you have a website? Do you have a showroom or do you just rely on your garage and pick up truck? Do you do any kind of marketing? What kind of company would you classify yourself as? Installation/sole proprietor? The reason i ask is because you are basically an installer and you wont be...

I notice you have a pattern of directing combative comments to some of the business owners on this site an...
