To be honest, I don't know how they do it for that price, for points moving forward.

What are the installation and product details (i.e. capping, foam, grids, warranty, etc.)?

No grills. Foam and capping included.
Thanks for your reply.

Also, is the U factor of 26 adequate for NYC?

0.26 is very good for double pane and one of the class leaders. If you are sensitive to temperature, I would inquire as to a triple pane option and see if its worth the additional investment on your part.

The 800 is a great window. Are you actually in NYC ?

Appreciate all the imput. Ok windows are a go.
I am replacing builders windows in a 3 year old house.
Since they are incerts.
Do the window opening need flashing? What should be done before windows go in?
I want to make sure everything is done right.

Insert application is fine if they understand water detailing.

That’s a pretty good price on that window.
If they are capping the exterior a drip cap should be installed or the new capping incorporated into the existing drip cap, but “flashing” would not be needed.

Great window, you'll be hard pressed to find a lower price than that these days assuming that this is a reputable company offering it.
Average price I see is significantly higher, this is definitely an outlier.

Thank you guys of all your input.
Now I am think about add a picture window and 2 700's instead of 3 800's.
What's your opinion on the Okna casement 700? As far longevity compare
to double hung 800's?

Good. Casements are generally very well designed and the Okna is no exception to the rule. Just a question of applicability of operation and placement is all.
