Okna 400 vs. Okna 500

#1 Post by Longo »

I have been getting a few quotes for replacement windows and the lowest so far is, double hung Okna 400, $399 installed and $575 for the 500 series. Delux package is an extra $50, which I will get.
What I am asking is the 500 series far superior than the 400 series for me to spend the extra money?
I am also doing casements 700 series, $499 installed plus $50 for Delux package. Awnings $489 and Twin Casements $899.
I am sure whichever window series I use will be a night and day difference to what I have now, but just want input if I should go for the extra money and is it worth it and will I even notice any difference?

Thanks all in advance, great forum!

Go with the 500 deluxe if you can. The 500 with the energy package is also good.

Good windows (500), but these are 2010 prices. That is below raw cost for the window and a qualified installation in my neck of the woods, not to mention the ancillary materials (coil, caulk, foam, shims, etc), and all overhead expenses and profit. Even a guy doing side jobs with a "tail light warranty" should be more than this these days... Major red flags IMO. Keep in mind, this industry is always in the top 2-3 for BBB complaints, and the vast majority are people choosing a cheap option that was too good to be true.
