"We had a wonderful experience all around. The sales team came and met with us to talk about what we wanted and measured the windows. We received an email with the sales quote. They" were not pushy sales people and this is one of the reasons we choose them. The whole process was fairly fast from the time the windows were ordered to install date. They were very punctual and very accommodating to us. They were professional and did an excellent job. I'd highly recommend them.

"Two workers showed up about an hour earlier than scheduled, but that wasn't a huge deal. Better early than late! They worked well as a team. They made quick work of getting" the old door out. Both were very personable, took plenty of time to explain what they were doing and share their experience. One of the guys had commercial construction experience going back decades. He offered some valuable tips on other projects we could do to increase our
appeal. The new door was a perfect fit. They were thorough and did not rush at all. In total, they were both here for about six hours. They even made a quick trip to the hardware store to pick up some molding since our original door didn't have any. The final outcome looks great. We can tell the quality of the product is very high. We went from a sliding door which was a value detractor to a door which is a value add (since the warranty is transferable). Overall, we are very satisfied. Zero remorse whatsoever. Every time we open the door, we are so glad we had it replaced with a quality product (and didn't attempt it ourselves).

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.

Window Replacement reviews in Sanford

I'm prompted to write this review after telling my mom I was excited to be getting new windows. When she learned that
Sanford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
will be doing the install, she gushed about the remarkable consult she had with one of the sales people a couple of years ago. She had a broken garden window, and this person advised her who could repair the window (not
Sanford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
) as opposed to selling her a brand new one for several thousands of dollars.
That's good business practice.
I had recommended
Sanford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
to her after my own wonderful experience two and a half years ago. It was a little job--replacing gutters--but it solved a problem that had been plaguing me for years. A smart sales rep came out and advised me that my basement's flooding was caused by overflowing gutters that allowed rain to pool up around and then seep into the foundation instead of being drawn away. I appreciated how he carefully listened and learned about the problem and then came up with a solution that worked! My basement has been dry ever since to my great relief during the torrential rains we've had in the past several months.
Just last week, the same sales rep came out to advise me on replacing some windows. He was honest about what could and could not be done, what was and wasn't energy efficient, and worked with me on deciding what color for the frames would be best. Considering how efficient and courteous the workpeople were who installed my new gutters, I look forward to another great experience when my new windows will be installed!

of
Sanford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
was very accommodating and efficient. He came out one day on my lunch hour and measured the windows. He gave me a recommendation on how to save on the wood trim (to match our gorgeous
Sanford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
woodwork). He gave me a quote on the spot in less than 45 minutes. In contrast, one of
Sanford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
's competitor's, WindowWorks, took more than an hour, made me late getting back to work with a lengthy sales pitch, and never did get me a quote.
Since my windows are custom, the wait time was lengthy. However, I was also having
Sanford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
pointing with the window lintels replaced at the same time. So, the wait was no big deal since that work had to be completed first anyway.
Sanford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
kept me informed and gave me one week warning as to when they would be able to come install. This was perfect for me since the windows being replaced were all in our rental apartment below us. The installation went smoothly and they cleaned up well. The tenant was very happy. I've now had the windows in for 1 year and the tenant really has noticed a big difference in sound reduction and energy costs. I would highly recommend
Sanford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
for your window replacement needs.

I have a 35 year old cabin which the original wooden deck was dry-rotted and needed to be replaced. Due to water damage from the deck, I had to replace my doors due to the dry-rotting of the wooden door frames. The siding on the house was neglected and needed to be replaced as well. As part of my requirements for the project, I wanted low maintenance replacements.
Sanford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
came out an reviewed the project, provided his recommendations and provided a quote. I was impressed by his knowledge in the field and various materials that could be used to obtain my goals. The project implementation progressed as he described and within the time frame he specified. Because I live down-state, he provided me daily pictures of the progress, which to me was fabulous and shows how he went out of his way to do a superb job, which also shows in his workmanship and the details of his work. The only caveat that I can say that happened during the project was it was delayed twice due to insufficient materials. I went with a special order color for the decking material and that was the price I paid for it. I don't blame the builder for that reason. All in all, he and his crew exceeded my expectations. They were very professional, courteous, and performed great work. I give them a 12 on a scale from 1-10. I'm grateful to have found such a great resource up north to assist with my outside renovation project. I'm definitely going to use this builder again for other work when I'm ready to focus my attention to the inside of my cabin.
