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. 

?

+1

 

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.

Considering everything, the project went well. The workmanship was excellent. I would highly recommend the carpenter,

. His work was outstanding. All of the workers were polite and efficient. They were also very neat!
Wilder Window Installers Provider Name Locked
has a good relationship with many suppliers so choosing and delivering fixtures, finishes and furnishings went very smoothly. The painters did an amazing job of matching the gumwood trim color on the new windows. Everyone worked hard to get the project done on time, although issues with the cabinets did push the finish deadline out about 10 days. The finished product is gorgeous.
However, we had trouble in two areas: the project manager had a family emergency (unforeseeable and no one's fault) which pulled him away from the project and resulted in some pieces of the project getting off track. The kitchen designer was the main source of our issues with
Wilder Window Installers Provider Name Locked
. She was often unavailable, conversations and instructions did not translate to accurate designs, and her mismanagement of the design, placement, and order of the cabinets delayed the finish and forced us to compromise on details. The expertise we expected, and initially tried to work with, was not there. Our house is 75 years old and we knew the quirks and foibles but she was unwilling to accommodate those quirks or what we knew worked in the space because we had lived in it for 35 years.
I would recommend

but definitely not their in-house designer. This would have been a near perfect project without her. As with any project, I would recommend that the homeowner keep very detailed notes of all orders, designs, and changes.

did a terrific job and finished many more projects than I expected. While he was waiting for the repair to dry, he even offered to caulk the windows. I was very pleased. I only wish the price charged was a little more reasonable so I could have work done more often.

and
Wilder Window Installers Provider Name Locked
were very polite and responsive at first. They came to my house and helped me work out the details of several projects, including the replacement of eight windows, a sliding glass door, a front door and transom, and some other smaller jobs. After a couple weeks of back and forth selecting appropriate materials and trim options,
Wilder Window Installers Provider Name Locked
let me know they had one big project to complete before mine, and they'd be in touch in 4 to 6 weeks to get started on my work.
After nearly two months passed,
Wilder Window Installers Provider Name Locked
emailed to tell me there were some delays, and they would be in to start on the doors in a few more weeks. I asked about the windows, and he said it was too late in the season, and the cold would affect the quality of the window adhesion. When I expressed my frustration, and pointed out that this was the first time he'd mentioned this window project might not get done this fall, I received a follow up email days later from
Wilder Window Installers Provider Name Locked
, telling me they would not be able to complete any of my work because other jobs superseded mine.
Long story short, it was pretty clear they were just bumping my job because they secured larger projects from other customers. I heard multiple stories from both
Wilder Window Installers Provider Name Locked
and
Wilder Window Installers Provider Name Locked
, none of which correlated with what the other had told me earlier. So I spent a great deal of time and effort working with these guys to hammer out the specs of my home improvements, then sat around waiting for months only to be blown off. Now it's mid-October and I have to start over. (They'd told me in early August they'd start work in about a month.)
I can't speak to the quality of their work, but their prices were on the high side of the bids I'd received. I was willing to put up with that because I'd heard good things. Unfortunately, these guys failed in the trust and integrity department. I would not recommend them.

They were very professional and their cost was very reasonable. I would definitely use them again. I used them after I heard some feedback from other people word of mouth. They were definitely worth calling. They were a great company and they provided great service.
