"I bought Angie's Big Deal for 40 hours worth of labor and was very pleased with the work
employees did. The workers were prompt, courteous, and thorough." They worked hard and steadily, yet were attentive to the quality of their work. The drywall blends in with the pre-existing drywall so it doesn't appear to have been replaced, and the repaired stucco on my ceiling blends in with the rest of the ceiling. They also did a good job of cleaning up. I would recommend

Replacing a screen door yourself, which this homeowner did after a dog mauled his old one, costs about the same as hiring a professional to do it for you. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Steven F., San Carlos, California)

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.

started and completed this rather large project in about 4 months, as he projected. He was available for contact, answered my questions, and offered helpful advice and suggestions throughout the project. He was also patient about my getting a "bank renovation loan," which at times was frustrating and held up the cash-flow; but

worked with me on this. His work is excellent; he did exactly what I wanted; if I wanted him to alter something, he did not bat an eye. He was easy to work with and professional. This was my first experience in hiring a contractor and renovating a property, and it was fun and exciting, not so difficult as these projects are sometimes reported to be. I highly, highly recommend

My granddaughter thought the screen door was open and tried to run right through it at full speed. She was OK, the screen was not. I called
Cumberland Window Screen Repair Companies Provider Name Locked
for an estimate and we arranged a time for them to come. They called me before coming to make sure I knew they were on their way and arrived at the time we had arranged. The person giving the estimate measured the screen, told me the cost and when he could have it for me.
I agreed to the cost and they told me it could take 7-10 days before the screen would be ready but I was happy to have them call me 5 days later to tell me the screen was ready. We arranged a time for the install and their man showed up on time with the new screen. The screen is rather large, and I did not initially expect the cost to be as estimated, but when I saw the final product installed I was very pleased. Not only did they have to build a completely new screen and frame but they had to take the door apart to install it.
The installer was very professional and worked very carefully to make sure that the installed screen was perfectly aligned, slid easily, and the locking mechanism was working perfectly. I definitely was treated well by this vendor, they delivered as promised, always arrived on schedule, and did everything I would expect a good company to do that wanted repeat business. I was very pleased with their delivery and If I have any issues with windows or doors in the future I will call them again.

We were really happy and very pleased with them. They did good work. We were pleased with what they did, but my husband and I weren't really pleased with one of their workers. He was really chatty with us and he would track dust in while he was doing the tile in the bathroom and he had grout dumped in my flowerbed and not by the ditch. I really didn't like that. I didn't think it was very professional, but the rest of the people in that company were excellent. At the end of the job they asked for a survey, and we did tell them about that and they apologized. They were on time, they stuck to their quote, and they were professional.
