"Very professional and affable to work with! I first contacted
thru Angie’s List.
promptly came at appointed" time and gave an estimate to clean all windows, sliding door & front door. We had 4 picture windows that had gathered moisture within the double-pane and looked foggy.
mentioned that this is a common phenomenon as double paned picture windows age and that he will clean the windows but the moisture being inside will still look foggy. Indeed these were old windows. So I told him that I will think over and consider alternatives. I decided to replace the picture window glasses - again contacting thru Angie’s list and very satisfied with the newly found Glass replacement company (Chattanooga Premier Glass). I then contacted
& mentioned that 4 picture windows have been replaced & that they do not need to be cleaned. So I got a revised quote with reduced price.
and
worked meticulously on cleaning all windows & they did an excellent job. The thing that impressed my wife and myself is that they on their own volition, cleaned many other items that were not part of the contract. As an example my wife noticed that all bathroom mirrors were thoroughly cleaned, garage door glasses, even the new picture windows were cleaned as there were a few spots. They really took pride on their work and did these extra work as they felt the house will look better with all glasses looking cleaned and shiny! I highly recommend them.

"It went great the installer showed up well within 2 hour window and everything looks nice...to be honest I should suck it up and probably give an "A"" on price except I happen to know exactly how much those two pieces of glass actually cost ;)

Window restoration & repair

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.

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.

Materials were delivered early and the installers were on time. The project manager made contact and checked that we where satisfied. The workers were professional and polite. They did a good job.

This is old, but it really warrants being told. I bought my house in 2001. Over the next few years I had these guys come out for four jobs. The first job was a metal awning over my large front porch area. It was fine. Price was good. The second job was a metal awning over my HUGE back porch. Work was fine. Price was fine. Then I had them do my entire house with new windows, 27 of them. Work was fine. Price was fine. Then I had them put a metal roof on, a project they normally don't do, but agreed to do it for 10k. They hired a sub-contractor. This company does siding and that is the only thing I hadn't had done yet and I didn't plan on it. While at my house during this last job, I said to

, "Well, I don't think I have any more work for you. I don't think I'm going to have the siding done." He replied, "I don't care. I am so busy." Wow! "I don't care?" That's a bit rude. Three years later I had discovered leaking in the roof. I called about it. The response was phenomenally rude.
Des Moines Window Installers Provider Name Locked
said, "WHAT!? THAT WAS FIVE YEARS AGO! THAT GUY IS DEAD!" So, apparently, the subcontractor that did my house had apparently fell off of a roof and got killed. I was directed to my 12 month installation warranty. I was pretty upset as you can imagine. I had given these guys so much business and roofs aren't cheap. All in all, I would at least have expected to be treated with some respect, but they acted like I was a joke. I was a customer, not a dealer, so I guess I wasn't educated on the business. I guess if I had spent more money on a reputable roofer I would have at least gotten a ten year warranty. So I tried to talk to them. His wife actually laughed at me on the phone. In 2012 I spent an additional $6k to have the roof entirely redone by Coast Exteriors and I have a lifetime guarantee on EVERYTHING. THAT guy is awesome! I would never recommend Capital Home Improvement. They are friendly and everything is fine until they have a negative thing to deal with. Then watch out!

They did a wonderful job! Before I went with Windows Universe I checked three other companies and they were all crazy expensive. Windows Universe had a great price and they were very helpful. I was a little nervous about the installation process, but let me just say they were in and out of my house. The house was left exactly how I had it before they got there. They cleaned up after themselves and the windows came out great! I can't wait to get my next set of windows!

Install went great. Window came in earlier than expected. The cost was quite high, but I was happy with the service. They even caulked the molding when they were finished. I have had windows done in two other houses by another company, after which I had to do a lot of fixing and cleanup afterwards, but

All of us love the sun room, including our teenage son who made it into his study whenever possible.
Champion was wonderful. Always professional and polite. They kept us informed (issues with building permits) as to status, without us having to get in touch with them. They came back promptly to fix a couple of items.

The sub contractor showed up when they said they would and did the work they said they'd do; but there was a detail in workmanship we would have had redone but were told, 'we were being ridiculous', while also being told all the reasons this gentleman, (

was condescending when coming out to look at the job, rude when I called to follow up on the bid, and was a complete jerk when we called to let him know we weren't satisfied with the finish work. We'll live with the job but would never recommend this shop if their employees are allowed to be this rude and crusty with their customers. It's a good thing they aren't looking for repeat business.

Excellent communication throughout. Arrived punctually for each appointment, just as promised. We are in a log cabin so install was not quite the norm, guys stuck with it, worked hard, had a positive attitude each day. They did a fair job of cleaning up and fixing trim issues, were very careful to

tarps and put everything back if it needed to be moved. The windows are absolutely beautiful - now I can look out at the forest and not miss a thing!
Other pluses - old windows are recycled or used for donation. New windows are made here in Texas.
I would recommend this family run company to anyone that needs windows. They were a pleasure to do business with.

From the point of sale throughout the installation we were very pleased with the service. We have a large house with many, many doors and windows and they replaced them all. Quite a massive amount of work, but the installers gave it their full attention even though it took longer than anyone expected. They paid attention to detail and we felt their craftsmanship was superior. Special thanks to both
