"This work was part of a pre-retirement house refresh on a 35 year old house. Roof, windows, paint, floors. The windows were our second step. The bidding process" was quick and fair (
was my contact). Once we had selected PSW&D as a vendor, they came out quickly to do final fitting measurements for all the selected windows and a patio door. We selected a target date for the work. The weather cooperated (this was February so that is never guaranteed) and the two-man install crew was here when they said they would be. The work was performed quickly and competently.
dropped by on the install day (with cookies in hand; always a positive with my family!) to follow up. The job went by painlessly and without drama. I was very happy with the service and the look of the windows. I would not hesitate to recommend
& Door to anyone.

"I'm very pleased with the windows that
installed in our home.
came highly recommended from a coworker, and I" reviewed his business on Angie's List before I made the phone call for a quote.
was the third company that came to our house to give me a quote.From the start,
was very professional and he arrived on time for the appointment. I felt comfortable with the education he gave me about window replacement. He wasn't the cheapest bid we received, but his offering seemed to be the best quality for the money we wanted to spend. Once I decided on the windows, he gave me a time line of the work that would take place. HIs crew arrived on time, and they were very professional. Each day, his crew made sure to walk me through the work they planned to accomplish and they cleaned up before leaving. I highly recommend
and
. I will be using them again in the near future.

Dear Angie: I recently replaced my single-pane windows with a dual-pane style. However, noise from outside seems louder than before. Why would this be? – Dezell, San Luis Obispo, 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.

Everyone from the sales rep. to the installers were great to deal with. There sales rep. went over everything about the window we were looking to purchase and how soon we could have them installed. The windows came in sooner then estimated, which was great for us. The installers did a great job. They put down tarps to help keep the floors clean during the removal and installation of the windows. After installing the windows in each room the did a total clean up of that room. They then showed us the complete operation of our windows. We are very pleased with our new windows and

never showed up on the agreed upon date. No phone call, no email -- nothing. Such non-existent customer care gets a big "F" from me any day of the week! I took time off work so I would be home for their visit. No way I would use this company in the future. Too bad -- my home has a lot of windows that need replacing!

They are professional from start to finish. Gutting the bathroom, new wallboard, all new electrical including fan and lighting fixtures. New appliances with custom shower and replaced all old plumbing. From starting with a plan to finishing, they did a superb job and they were extremely easy to work with. They remodeled our full sized kitchen including hardwood floors, new electrical, plumbing and appliances in 2008...it still looks brand new! The quality of their cabinetry is like no other. Because they did our kitchen, we called them for the bathroom, after a botched job was done by another company. (We were unaware they did the smaller jobs.) We have also used Choice for door/stormdoor replacement and new shutters. We will call them later this year to replace another door/ stormdoor combo. Security was never an issue as many times we could not be home while they were scheduled to work. Their prices are competitive, but reasonable for seniors on a fixed income. We will call on them when it comes time to replace our windows. We highly recommend them!

The windows are wonderful.
The installers were pleasant and knowledgeable. The existing window frames (many newly painted or new sills) were not marred or damaged in any way. The work was neat and completed in less than 2 days.
After installing plugs that were left for post inspection, we were unable to close one of the windows. WW responded immediately to fix it – taking it out and releasing the plugs that jammed it. We are awaiting the replacement of one screen that was scratched and one missing screw.
The cost was higher than we anticipated and the wait time was longer than originally assumed, probably due to the unusual arched windows that were needed for two of the rooms. But we are extremely pleased with the results.

Professional team of workers under instruction by Bill were very courteous and careful in making certain other property in the condo was not damaged, etc. They cleaned up as they went from one window to the next and left the premises as they found them when they first came in. Very impressed with the entire operation and have ordered and are awaiting the arrival of the remainder of the windows.
