"It went perfectly, on budget and on time. The subcontractors were managed very well, having them out to consult with me, then adjusting their times to co-ordinate a very rapid job."

"It went very well. The lady who came and worked with me was very knowledgeable with their products. They came to their appointment on time. Their price was reasonable. There was a little" communication problem with the type of shutters that I wanted but they were very helpful in solving the problem. The men who came and installed them were very good. They made sure everything matched and looked great.

Windows - Egress

Many homeowners seem to have questions about window egress laws. One highly rated provider breaks down everything you need to make an informed decision.

Double-hung wooden windows are known for their classic, unique look, but they’re also known for being loud and drafty. Instead of installing vinyl replacements, many window specialists offer restoration services that preserve an old window’s aesthetics while improving its functionality.

It's hard to determine if a window should be replaced or restored. Angie provides insight on making the difficult decision.

Hello - I hope my answer will help point you in the right direction.

 

The reason you're having a hard time getting clear information is because there are hundreds of companies saying their window is the best. There are probably millions of different features you can choose to have for your windows and in price ranges from $169-$1200 (per double-hung window).

 

I've been in the business for 15 years and have seen many different window products from many different dealers and manufacturers. This all comes down to: "what's important for you and your home?" If you want a strong warranty from a company who has a full-time service department to give you piece of mind and service your windows should needs be, or are you looking at only those companies who offer true wood interior windows that you can paint or stain to match the home decor? Whatever is your hot-button, then that's where you want to start.

 

I would recommend you first choose how you want your new windows to look. Wood-interior with vinyl clad is only offered by certain companies, while there is a vinyl woodgrain finish to give you similar results without the maintenance. If you're only looking for a white interior and don't want the maintenance, a fiberglass or vinyl window would be the best choice from what is offered in the market today (vinyl will be less expensive - not necessarily cheaper quality). If you are going to change out a window to a french door and a door to a window, then you WILL NEED to find a contractor with some carpentry experience. Some companies will tell you upfront that they do not handle those sorts of remodeling projects due to the complexity and time it would take to get it complete.

 

Unfortunately, we won't be able to personally help you with your project as we work in the New England Area. However, if you wish to talk further, please feel free to email me at: sven@ritewindow.com and I'll be happy to let you know our prices for what we offer so you can compare and hopefully find a similar company to do the work for you near the Austin area.

 

Cheers!

Get your roofer back out there.  Course of shingles above the window need to be pulled, self sealing flashing, drip caps, and counter and step flashing are going to be required here. 

 

This is a flashing issue as the window connects to the mansard roof surface. 

 

Condensation and a leak are two different and very noticeably different (i.e. volume) things.

 

Flashing and roofing on Mansards can be tricky but is sounds very much like a roofing issue.

Much easier to scratch and typically not as good a finished quality as compared to glass.

 

Benefits are the resistance to breakage as mentioned by LCD.  Any glazing shop should be able to re-create that panel. 

?

For a broken window (or leaking seal in multi-pane unit), for a standard roughly 2x3 foot window, can run from low of about $75-125 for single pane to more like $200-300 range for triple pane, depending on construction and any special ultraviolet or heat reflective coatings. If a removeable window unit, of course cheaper to remove it and take to replacement glass place then have them come out, measure glass size, order glass unit, then come back to install.

 

If taking in yourself, commonly they can do single-pane in an hour or two, but count on a week or so typically for sealed double or triple pane unit to come in, so you will have to seal the opening in the interim. That is an advantage of having them come out - they measure and determine type of unit on first visit and can seal with tape and plastic sheeting (if you have not already done that), then come back with new unit and install a week or two down the road - but you are not stuck with an opening in the wall for a long time.

?

Thermal numbers look okay when looking at the NFRC.

 

Do you have any other data on them?  Air infiltration, Design Pressure, Visible Transmittance, and Condensation Resistance are all good evaluators.

 

http://www.mercuryexcelum.com/images/customer-files/Advantage.pdf

 

Air infiltration rate is way high at 0.21.

 

It may look nice in person but the performance numbers are below average.

If you are being sued and/or counter suing, then you should hire a lawyer.  While you can do small claims court and sue without a lawyer, the Contractor's insurance will provide him a lawyer to defeat you.  Plus, odds are good the Contractor has more court experience than the average Home Owner, especially if this is his standard opperating procedure.  If you go against a lawyer, you will lose, even if you are right (Saying the right thing at the wrong time is very bad in court rooms.  Get a lawyer who knows the processes).

Once you decide you are suing, there should be no further contact or access to the property with the contractor.  If you have already been told you are suing, you should stop all access to your property (you are allowing them to gather evidence AGAINST you.  Your lawyer may be able to reach an agreement outside of court to allow the contractor to fix the work within a specific time period, but even then make sure you are not in contact with the contractor.  Anything you say, will be turned against you ("The Home Owner said it was okay.")

A building official has no legal obligation in court; his job is safety and minimum construction requirements as allowed per Code.  He has no say over materials and methods, and cannot assess damage. (IRC doesn't have a requirement that the door you mention exceed 35", so he won't care it isn't 36" as an example).  What he CAN do is state if the work is unsafe or causing other conditions which are unsafe.  Let your lawyer decide; but it is not in your best interest to have the Building Offical inspect with the contractor.

To sue you need to show damages.  Get another contractor (get some references or hire an architect to help ensure you get what you need) to inspect the work and give an estimate to repair.  The amount the contractor(s) estimates becomes what you seek in court (plus court fees) from the contractor.  If his work caused problems, you should be suing, not sued.

Also, be aware that no door manufacturer makes an actual 36" door (as an example).  They each have their own frame sizes, so a "36 door" in reality will be 35 7/8" to 35 3/8".  Each door maker has slightly different sizes (go online, you can see Pella, Anderson, Kolbe-Kolbe, etc. have their actual sizes available for PDF downloads).  If you replace a Pella 36" with an Anderson's 36" they won't fit perfectly.  In fact, the different styles within the same manufacturer are sometimes even different.  The purpose of trim is to hide the gap between the wall and door frame, so your door may be perfectly fine in size and method of installation. 

When you have this work corrected (and for any future work) utilize the services of a lisenced Architect.  They will oversee the work, review requests for payments and document existing conditions and conditions found during construction to prevent the situation you are now in.  They will also ensure the proper permits are filed and the inspections called for.  Because they are a third party to the agreement, they can be the 'bad guy' and make the contractor perform, where you just have to pay the invoices they approve.  The contractor deals with the Architect (and vice versa) and you get the project you wanted. The cost of the architect would have been around $3,200 and is minimal compared to what you are dealing with now, the peace of mind is worth it and architects often find cost savings that go directly back to the Home Owner.  When you account for time alone, you will have spent more than this on just preparing and attending the court case.

Because this is headed to court, stop all communication with the contractor and get yourself counsel.  Good luck.

I obtained a quote from Home Room to repair several windows in my home that had rotted. At the time of the quote, one window was replaced at a cost of $700. I told them I would call when I was ready for the other windows to be done. In March I called and asked to have the work done. They asked that I send them a deposit of $585 and that they would get to me in about a month. Six months later I was still waiting, despite numerous phone calls. Finally, in October,

refunded my deposit plus $100 for interest and referred my to another company because he said he could not get to me. While I appreciate the gesture, I am going to go another winter with bad windows because they strung me along. The new company cannot get to me until spring. I have used Home Room in the past for to her projects and was very happy but this experience left a bad taster in my mouth.

Overall, the experience was great. They were prompt to show up to provide an estimate and nearly completed the job when they predicted they would (the only thing that slowed them down was the weather).
It was tough to find a contractor that was willing to do or coordinate everything required to install abasement egress window into a location where one didn't exist - excavating the hole for the window well, cutting through the concrete, installing the window and well, and finishing out the interior of room where the window was installed (trimming out the window, moving electrical outlets, repairing drywall, and painting the room). The guys at Raspberry did most of the work themselves (save the concrete cutting) and really did an excellent job.

We knew that using Bee Windows would be more expensive, and we wanted to meet and get to know the company before we invited them into our house. We called to see if we could come to their showroom in Fishers, IN, We were told we had to wait until Saturday at 10:00 am. We made a 50 mile round trip to make this appointment.
When we got there, nobody was there and we had to buz a bell until someone showed up. We informed them that we had an appointment at 10:00 am. The salesman was not there yet and was invited to look around. Finally the salesman arrived and I should have know something was amiss by the whimpy handshake he gave us upon greeting him.
After explaining what we were looking for, he showed us two doors and explained the difference between the two. He handed us a pamphlet and told us that "this picture was the cheapest and became more expensive as you moved from picture to picture.
I asked him about the window he was standing at. I asked him for a rough ballpark figure of what that window cost. He was very evassive and did not answer. I said, I don't want a quote, I just want to know the ballpark figure, am I looking at a 800, 1000, 2000 dollar slider or what.
His flipant and rude answer was he would not tell me. I asked again and he said anywhere from $2 to $10,000. HIs

was very rude. I said I would not waste my time if he could not provide me with any information.
We had 1 patio door that needed immediate replacement with 14 additional windows, another patio door, and 2 storm doors all to be replaced before spring. I have no idea if this salesman was following company policy to be rude, evassive, and a jerk, or if it is just the company's policy to hire such people to represent them. Either way, I will never consider them and will make it a point to tell people about what

Bee Windows are really famous about. Since my experience, I have been going back and reading some of the negative comments this company has had and find these comments very accurate.
