OKNA 500 or 800?

#1 Post by bluefish »

The cost of OKNA 800 is 50% or more than 500. I don't need the added on features such as nickel handle, or additional color choice, such as wooden color. Plain white is OK.

Is OKNA 500 is good enough, or shall I install 800?

How does OKNA compare to SoftLite's Imperial Elite and ProVia windows? SoftLIte is provided by another local company, the price is significantly higher.

The 500 seems to be exactly what you are looking for.
It’s better than the Pro-Via and has performance numbers that rival the other 2.

+1. If you don't need the options, the 500 is a very solid window.

The Provia doesn't belong in the comparison with Soft-Lite and Okna and the Okna 500 is as good as the Imperial Elite and the 800 is better.

I'd just confirm the option of the other pros:

- While the 800 is a bit better, the Okna 500 is a very good window and at a 50% lower price it is an easy choice

- The SL Elite is also nice and is comparable. The Provia is not imo.
