"It took them just under 4 hours to do the work and they did the majority of the installation from the outside despite it being winter. They even wheelbarrowed the" dirt to the back for me at no additional charge. It went really smoothly and the inspector even commented on what a nice job they did. They were professional and answered all of my questions.

Windows - Egress

Many homeowners seem to have questions about window egress laws. One highly rated provider breaks down everything you need to make an informed decision.

Double-hung wooden windows are known for their classic, unique look, but they’re also known for being loud and drafty. Instead of installing vinyl replacements, many window specialists offer restoration services that preserve an old window’s aesthetics while improving its functionality.

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.

and his staff were awesome from start to finish. They were very knowledgeable about code requirements and had plenty of experience to recommend the right window manufacturer. When they bid the job,
Exeter Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
came out and thoroughly assessed the job and any obstacles they might encounter. But the owner,
Exeter Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
, also came by so he could see the job as well. Very energetic guys who were actually exciting about the potential of my basement. If only I could catch some of that excitement. On the day the work was performed the workers arrived right on time and started the job. They worked very hard and did a very professional job. Part of the job involved actually moving my outside air conditioning unit. They moved it -- no additional charges. And I also had a treeling that had grown near the window. Again, he guys dug it out for me with no additional charge. I am hiring them to do more work on my basement in hopes I will like it as much as they do.

and his crew were amazing. I haven't seen three guys work that hard and that efficiently in a really long time. In addition to busting their humps, knocking out all of that work in the short weather-window they had, they were very professional and friendly too. They really took pains to make sure I was satisfied ... nay... elated... with the work. I wish everyone I contract with for work were half-as-good as
Exeter Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
and his crew.



I was also pleasantly surprised with the quality of the windows they installed. I hadn't really given it much thought, and just assumed they would be cheapo windows, since that is what we have come to expect as the baseline default. They are actually well built, and come with a great warranty too.



If you want the job done right, this is the company to do it. I was extremely impressed.

's a super personable guy and I'm happy with the window. There were some bumps in the road with this project, but the end result is good and all was made right.
Communication was a little difficult with him, as his voice mailbox was often full and e-mails went unanswered for days, but he always did get back to me and started and finished the job on time. The day after the window was installed (Christmas Eve), I woke up to discover the well full of water and water leaking into the basement. They'd had to cut a drain to finish the project and did not install a long enough extension on it, so the
Exeter Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
all ran back into the well. I called him and he and
Exeter Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
rushed out to my house on Christmas Eve within 20 minutes, pumped out all the water, cleaned everything up, and remedied the problem.
Everything has been fine since, the permits and inspection all went fine, the project was finished on time and within budget, and the window is a BIG improvement in the basement.

Nick and
Exeter Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
were very professional during the entire process of the
Exeter Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
install. They were always on time and extremely courteous. The dirt that resulted from the dig in the yard was carefully placed where we requested, as was any sawdust from the yard where the cutting was done. They also took special care not to get too much dust in the room where they were working, and cleaned up behind them very well. The job they performed was of high quality and professionally done. Even the inspector commented on what a nice job they had done. We would definitely recommend these guys for any work someone may need done, and would use them ourselves for any future jobs.

It went very well. The whole process from the estimate to the finished window was very smooth. The workers who installed the window are very nice, and considerate of our house. They cleaned up afterward, were efficient and finished by early afternoon. The window looks great, even the yard doesn't look bad where the equipment was. Definitely recommended.

In early September 2014, after 14 years of owning an older home here in
Exeter Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
; we began searching for a contractor to replace our windows and entry system for our three season porch.



During this time, we had several companies come to our home to quote us. Each company was to supply the same windows and door system. This is where the similarities between each company ends.



The pricing wasn’t dramatically different however the method of installation and overall impression left by each company was one of the major reasons we selected
Exeter Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
.



Before making our final decision, we visited the
Exeter Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
Showroom here in
Exeter Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
to physically see the products we wished to have installed. As you know,
Exeter Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
does not sell windows directly to the consumer and when asked which company they would recommend of those we are contemplating we were told without hesitation
Exeter Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
.



When you came to the house for the initial estimate and final measurements we felt confident you knew what we were looking for and what we expected once the job was complete. A few unforeseen hiccups arose along the way, including you transitioning to another position within the company.



When issues arose and needed to be addressed, you jumped back in to ensure the overall all job was not just quality but that we were happy as well.



With this said, we would gladly recommend
Exeter Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
to our friends and family and will seek your advice in the spring on replacing our Home Depot windows we installed in 2001 of which many we have discovered have seals that are no longer any good.



Thanking you again for a job well done.

came out and gave me the bid: $2000 for a basement egress window, no inside finishing since I was remodeling anyway,
Exeter Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
metal window well and $5000 for new roof shingles on a small
Exeter Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
roof.
Exeter Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
was concerned that my older 1926 four square had a sagging roof and called out the owner,
Exeter Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
to have a second look at it since
Exeter Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
was more of the roofing expert. None of the rafters were broken, but
Exeter Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
insisted that to have a proper roof, (and workers walking on it) knee walls to correct the sagging needed to be installed. I was hesitant but went ahead with that improvement since the overall re-roof bid with the fix was comparable and reasonable.
I got the bid in October and there were several delays in scheduling: the first having to do with my tree trimmer who I was waiting to remove large oak branches that were scraping the roof. The second was from the city starting sewer work and blocking off the street. When there finally was street access for the work, it was well into winter. So I was happy the job could still get done before the Christmas holiday.
I am glad that the sagging roof was fixed as the house looks much better. Work done included attic knee walls, tear off and fixing some cracked sheathing. Roof work took about 3 days.
When I paid
Exeter Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
we looked outside to inspect the work and he noticed that the flashing around the chimney was silver color. I didn't really care, but he noted that in his bid it covered flashing that was brown to match the roof shingle's color and house trim. He then took $200 off the bill which was fine with me. I can paint it myself for a small amount, but I probably will just leave it. I mostly cared about the quality of the roof surface. He cared a lot more about the aesthetics.
The new basement window looks great, work was done in one day. Noise is created from the sawing of concrete and this was to be expected. Workers were very friendly. Inside of house was left very clean.
I had to take off work for both bid appointments and to let the window workers into the basement on the first day. However, all the roof work was done from the outside so I didn't have to be home. It was very convenient. Sales rep
