"We are very happy with the quality of the windows and the workers who installed them. They were professional, polite and caring to do the job right. Our home is" 125 years old and a lot of the windows would get drafty in the winter. Temps got below 30 last night and we hardly noticed. The windows are already paying off and they look great. We definitely recommend -Rite.

" came out and gave us an estimate. He was supposed to do the repairs on 10/25, but never showed and didn't call until late in the day" to say that he would be out the next day. I was told that no one had to be at home, but I am glad that I was home. A van full of foreigners showed up to do the work. The only one that spoke English was the foreman. My home has two (2) chimneys and I heard them working on the wrong one. I informed them that they were working on the wrong one, so they moved to the correct one. After only about 1/2 hour, I was told that they needed to go to Home Depot for material. They were gone for two (2) hours. When they finally came back, they only worked for about another 1/2 hour. At this point, was with them. He told me that the work was complete, so I paid him. That evening when my husband looked at the work, he noticed that one of the slate shingles near where they were working was broken. Then we had heavy rain two days later. THE LEAK WAS STILL THERE! My husband called on Thursday and was told that he would be at the house around noon on Friday. My husband took off work Friday afternoon to be there, but never showed. My husband tried calling him several times and left several messages for him. He never returned the calls. I put a stop payment on the check. Now we have to hire someone else to do the work that was not done correctly, plus have a broken slate shingle repaired or replaced. I will never, ever do work with this contractor again or recommend him to anyone else!

Window Repair and Restoration

When window replacement isn't an option due to cost or preservation concerns, repairing or restoring your home's windows can return them to their former glory.

Replacement Windows

Replacing your home's windows may require a large investment. Learn what types of materials are available and what those energy efficiency ratings mean.

Angie's List

This handy infographic provides tips on household tasks to do in autumn, including gutter cleaning, roof inspections, chimney cleaning and stopping drafts around windows and doors. How Angie's List can help.

If you're selling your Illinois home in 2015, make sure to check the condition of your window and doors. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Grace M. of Chicago)

Replacing double-hung wooden windows with newer vinyl windows may seem like an obvious choice, but it's not your only option.

Buyer beware: unscrupulous contractors and shady deals are everywhere.

Angie's List member Eric D. of Chicago had three storm windows installed during a larger window replacement project.

Adding storm windows can improve your home's energy efficiency.

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. 

?

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.

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. 

?

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.

installed a large bay window in my home. The contractors who completed the work were very professional from start to finish! It was scary seeing the large opening that was created to accommodate the window but the finished product was worth the anxiety. The window was finished off inside with wood trim, screens were installed ...More and demonstration of how to open the windows to clean and remove in the event of an an emergency. We ordered the window because I use a wheelchair and all the windows on my second floor where my bedroom is start at 4' and there is no way I could possibly get out a window that high off the floor. This bay window is wide enough to allow me to exit in the even of an emergency. The really nice thing about the window is my wife is happy! Since the window was installed my wife has not stopped complimenting the installation, happy wife happy life!
I have had a lot of work completed on my home over the last year and a half and this was the best by far in looks and function. They cleaned up all debris from the bedroom, roof and even the driveway where they parked their truck.
The price was more than reasonable, I had estimates completed by 2 other companies and having to wait 2 weeks for the one estimate and the other that completed an estimate without knowing their own product made me not consider them. I specifically requested information regarding possible egress in the event of a fire and one of the people providing did not know if the larger window a part of the bay window could be opened so he estimated a much larger bay window that was also much more expensive. The other companies completing estimates wasted my time.
I am sure this has increased the value of my home and the usefulness to my wife and I for years to come.
I will definitely contact with any future needs!

Everything went well. They showed up on time and the install looks perfect. I had a horrible experience with Window World and this company really showed how a window company should be ran. I highly recommend using this company for any window replacements.

The door looks good and the installation went smoothly. There was other problems. While the door was advertised as a "Premium" door the manufacturer offers no type of warranty. When I contacted the seller, he said there was a warranty, but when I asked him to send me a written copy of the warranty, I received no response. I admit i should ...More have brought this issue up before I signed the contract and I would advise anyone doing business with this company to do so. I hope I don't have any problems with the door.

Overall experience was good. they did the work on the specified date. they did start late due to forgetting ladders but they stayed late and into the next day to make up for the lost time. they put on new 6 inch gutters and also did downspouts which I actually didn't ask for. they also repaired some of the siding of the house which was up too ...More high for me to get to. the crew cleaned up after themselves and explained what they were doing.

Few weeks ago, Mr. Trasatti ( ) came and took measurements. I was expecting that the whole windows would needed to be replaced because another company had told me so. said he could replace just the glass for half the cost. His two-men crew did an excellent job. they were meticulously clean, vacuuming frequently. ...More They even vacuumed and tidied my deck before leaving.

was very responsive to my calls and made time quickly to come and see the windows and give me an estimate. The same was true when she came with her husband to finalize the quote and make final, detailed measurements. Both she and her husband seemed genuinely interested in making sure that I get what I need. After I signed the ...More contract, I found a coupon on line and she was also very nice to apply the discount. The lead time is nine weeks so I should have my new windows by early December, in time for winter.
