"I contacted AWP through Angie's List shortly before Christmas.
came to my home within a week. He was punctual and even called to let" me know he might be 5 minutes late because of traffic, yet arrived on time. I had done my online homework and checked Angie's List and the BBB regarding AWP and other window companies. I had spoken with neighbors about their replacement windows and seen what had been installed by other companies. When
arrived he sat down with me and thoroughly educated me in his window product. His windows (in my opinion) far superior to what I had seen at local home builder stores and other companies. He talked about the "pros" and "cons" of "complete" vinyl windows which are typically installed and HIS product that uses aluminum in the frame and the horizontal rail where the locks are screwed in. (The vinyl horizontal rails can/will sag with the high heat they are exposed to, I had noticed this in other windows in my area.) He also discussed the design of the window that includes 3 weather strips to eliminate dust and dirt from entering the home. This is very important as I have allergies and will benefit from the tight seal of the windows. I have learned how the window sits in a "trough" that strengthens the windows so that they exceed Texas Windstorm ratings.
gave me an estimate, there were no "
costs" for almond/beige colored windows... and I was told the installers would "take care of everything." The windows arrived on time and the installers were punctual. I was unable to remain at home during the first day of installation. After meeting
and his crew I felt VERY comfortable leaving them to install the windows and knew they would take excellent care of my home. I had 27 windows to install in 2 days. The first night when I came home from work you would NEVER have known anyone had been in the house to do all that work as it was exactly as I had left it! I was really surprised because it literally poured down rain with high winds the first day of install--- yet despite all this there was no dirt or any debris in my home! I was able to be here for a portion of the install on the second day and was impressed by the professionalism of the crew, their diligent work ethic, and their attention to detail. They removed windows carefully to prevent glass/debris from getting in my flower beds, cleaned up dust/dirt, sealed each window with caulk, and removed/replaced window treatments with care. They went around and cleaned each window (inside and out) to get rid of any rain spots from the weather. They picked up ALL trash and debris (had tons of drop cloths) and checked each room prior to departing. I can not imagine being happier with my windows or the company I selected to perform the task. It is a quality product with a delightful group to work with. During the install neighbors I had never met came and asked to come in to see my windows and remarked on what a difference they made in the appearance of the home. They are looking to replace windows and I was quite happy to tell them about my experience.
even stopped his hard work to tell them about the windows. This certainly slowed down his work but he did not mind a bit! I absolutely LOVE my new windows.... already there is a noticeable difference in noise and temperature around the windows. I am now sitting in my den as the sun is setting.... looking out through stunning new windows! Thanks so much to
,

, and
! I will recommend your company without ANY hesitation!

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.

It went well. But I was told that the city of saline requires slider windows can only change a certain percentage of your home in Saline Mi which I found out later this was not true. Unfortunately the windows were already placed when I found out. They truly stand behind the product though and will make things right. The windows were a good value for the price.

came out to property and took measurements. They custom made the windows within scheduled timeframe (3-4 weeks). The company then applied for a permit with the local village.

also hired an engineering firm to perform wind-load calculations, which must be officially conducted for potential hurricanes in accordance with Building Department regulations. They came out to remove the old windows and closed up the openings with plastic and tape. They had to mix up concrete for filling in the spaces where old windows came out. They had to custom saw and design pressurized treated wood to frame out the openings. The windows were installed and properly adjusted. The Building Dept. passed the windows upon first inspection. The owner of the company personally came out to patch up the stucco and paint the exterior of the area on the condo building where the windows were installed.

ficultyWe were delighted with the installation of all the windows and glass doors installed be Windows Plus. From start to finish, the installation was professionally done. This was not a normal installation because of the tolerances needing to be considered to ensure all fit together as proper. Other businesses were not willing to offer up an estimate ebcause of the installation difficulty. Windows Plus, on the other hand, took on and completed
