"
Jr. and Sr. came out to do an estimate on Sept. 18. They were both very polite and friendly, and were great about walking me through the process and making me" feel comfortable with their experience and knowledge. I had gotten a few other quotes (all within $100 of each other) but the father/son duo won hands down. Fast forward to Mid October - aside from one small issue with the permit process that delayed construction a week (only due to being cautious) everything went very smoothly. They handled pulling the permit with the city and even called Ms. Dig to make sure they didn't dig through a utility line. There was an issue with the saw towards the end that extended the cutting process, but
Jr. and his crew stayed late to make sure everything was done right, only having to return the next day to put up the trim (it was dark and they said they'd rather have adequate light to make sure it was done well). They were great about keeping in contact and making sure I was in the loop on everything. I would recommend them to everyone (and plan on it!) Thanks guys!

"From quote to install it was a great experience. The installer Nick did a great job, kept me informed of what was going on, he kept the work site outside and inside my home clean." He is a worker. wish I had more contractors like him working on my other projects. It was the one project that was completed without surprises . thanks and I will definately recommend you to others.

"Project went fantastic!!! The price was good compared to other places I checked with. They seemed like they really wanted the work where other places were a little indifferent. The" project got started a little late because of some rain but they stayed late to make sure everything got done in one day. I had a hole in my back yard I wanted to fill with the dirt from the egress. I thought I would have to move the dirt back there myself but the guys did it for me. Saved me a ton of work. The window looks awesome inside and out. I'm very happy with how the window turned out. The guys were also very helpful with the inspection for completing the permit. I had some concerns about quantity and placement of smoke and CO detectors. They told me what I need, I went and bought them while they worked, and they even helped me install them for inspection. Overall I couldn't have asked for much more from this project. Extremely satisfied.

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.

It's hard to determine if a window should be replaced or restored. Angie provides insight on making the difficult decision.

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.

I just moved. Sellers had replaced all windows except in the basement. Needed egress for basement bedroom.







Installation dates were changed but they did everything they could to get 4 windows in before new deck was installed.







There was miscommunication on the kind of windows for the downstairs rec room, which was under construction for remodel. In that room I got 1 slider and 2 double hungs. Not what I would have wanted if I'd understood. It was miscommunication, but I told them it would've been helpful if they'd even drawn a picture or pointed out that there would've been two different types of windows in the same room. We wound up constructing the room so the different windows would not be in the same room...made the storage area larger than intended, but it works. Initially they said they'd change out the 2 double hungs. Then they missed a couple appointments when they were to come back and install the 5th window. At that point, I said, yes, go ahead and replace the 2 double hungs and just make it right. They said they would but they would charge me full price. It wasn't worth the aggravation since we hadn't started putting walls up yet.....and were able to make it work.







Overall, this is a good deal. I don't regret purchasing or working with them. Ask lots of questions and make sure you completely understand the order!! I do think they should've been willing to stand by the original offer and replace the 2 windows. The expense on their part shouldn't have been more than labor since the windows could've been used on another project. I would've split the labor cost with them.







One of the missed appointments on the 5th window was due to their supplier being closed Labor Day weekend. Since I was taking time off work and trying to work around their schedule, more communication and advance notice of the delays would've been helpful. The entire process just had a few bumps!!

Great. We had purchased a home built in 1992 and we purchased this house in 2008, it needed a new kitchen including custom made countertops cabinets. We had a deck built on the back of the house. We also installed two very large egress windows on the Eastside of the home, to include a custom egress window well measuring 18 feet long completely constructed of timbers including planter boxes decorative rock, and stairs.
wood floors were installed, vinyl for 1 bathroom, drywall work throughout the home including re texturing of the ceilings.
new doors interior and exterior replacement windows and screens. All of the Interior Painting was subcontracted and they did a very nice job

They met our expectations, the way we asked and the way they did it. There wasn't anything exceptional but they did a fine job. It was a competitive and fair price.

We originally worked with a sales person from this company named
Toledo Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
Downey. We agreed on the price of the two windows and a description of the windows we wanted. I was clear that I wanted the individual steps to be 12" from front to back to accommodate the possible need for me to be carrying children up from the basement in an emergency. My request for 12" steps did not make it into the contract. When I first saw the progress of the work, I told the owner,
Toledo Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
, that I had requested, and his sales rep had agreed to 12 inch "long steps"; he told me that their definition of "long" steps, is a 9" step. So I ended up with 9" steps.
The crew left dozens of cement blocks, 2" x 4" boards and a dirt covered tarp on our lawn for weeks (during summer.) Needless to say, the lawn died under these items. I requested that these things be removed several times. We ended up paying to have the lawn repaired.
Mr.
Toledo Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
promised to replant the landscaping his crew removed in order to give them more room to work. He asked where we wanted the items replanted and we showed him. They were not replanted, leaving them to dry and die. We paid to have the landscaping replaced.
From the first day of work until the last, the owner promised that his crew would clean up the rocks and debris they left on our walkway. The presence of that mess made it impossible for our children to safely play in the backyard. They never did clean it.
Additionally, the work was not completed on time. Our contract was signed on June 27, 2014. It was supposed to be done before we moved in, on
Toledo Window Well Covers Provider Name Locked
23. It was about 3 weeks after we moved in before they stopped working. (I can't say "until they finished," because they never did really finish the job.)
I did write to them, on August 18, explaining all of this and requesting that they correct the length of the steps. I have not heard from them as of October 22.

The work done was fantastic, the quoted price was fair and they delivered both from a timing and a quality perspective. I had worked with this provider to replace our triple-wide sliding glass door earlier in the summer when the rotted sub floor and bump out were discovered. I asked for them to follow-up with a quote for this additional work and it was scheduled and completed. They were able to save the linoleum in the dining room near the door where the rotted sub floor was without having to replace that, saving us a good bit of money. Both
