"The experience with
was nothing but positive. I contacted them based on the reviews I read here and I hope my review does the same for another" customer. They were very responsive from the first inquiry and any other questions I had. the owner
, arrived for the estimate, he measured, explained my options and what would be best to conserve energy. I live in a townhome but with a condo association and he was familiar with rules and I found later he had done work in this area before. for the actual install, the contractors arrived early, they worked like a well oiled machine, very professional and careful, making sure everything fit, etc. I thought the job would be half a day, they finished within 4 hours. So this is 4 casement windows, they made sure the handles worked properly and I knew how to work them. They cleaned up inside and outside and were on their way. the windows are beautiful. I have two more windows upstairs and when the time comes will definitely contact them again.

"They did a fine job and cleaned up the mess around the house. The only negative thing was they left my outside water hose on and forgot to shut it down. the new" caulk looks good and makes the windows stand out better.

Window restoration & repair

When window replacement isn't an option due to cost or preservation concerns, repairing or restoring your home's windows can return them to their former glory.

Can you spot the differences between a bay window and a bow window?

Windows,

Caulking windows can help you save money on energy costs and even keep insects from coming through the cracks. Here's how to do it properly.

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.

What we really impressed with
Altoona Window Installers Provider Name Locked
was their professionalism. The sales representative spent at least 3 hours going over all the details, very honest, answered any questioned we had. He did not put any pressure on us, even offered some ways to get discount without even asking. They thrive on customer satisfaction and they make sure that customers are happy 100%. Once we agreed to proceed the project, they set up date promptly, made follow up call couple days in advance to make sure that we will be home on the day of service. The crew showed up on time, they were through and professionals… we were so happy with their services that we reused them for more house improvement work.

He and his crew did a phenomenal job. From the time he gave us the estimate he was responsive and assisted us. He gave us some recommendations of windows to consider and places to look at them. Once we decided on the window manufacturer he gave us referrals to installations he had done. He also provided me with 8 recommendations; I called all of them and all of them couldn't have been more positive. He and he crew showed up on time, were expedient, clean and friendly.

The 4 installers arrived at about 9:30 am, and immediately went to work. By 7:30 pm of the 1st day, they had 2 of the 2 sides completed. By the end of the 2nd day they had the 3rd side completed and returned on the 3rd day to take care of some minor trimming. The only breaks they took on each those 3 day were lunch breaks. After completing the installation, the cleaned up all of the debris, sweep the patio and removed all trash. I have never seen contractors work so diligently. They, even, installed new outdoor lighting, that I had purchased, to replace old, outdated lighting. I was extremely please with the quality,speed and thoroughness of the installation crew.
The installers did everything that

Altoona Window Installers Provider Name Locked
did a great job. We are in a hurricane area and have special building regulations regarding windows.
Altoona Window Installers Provider Name Locked
knew what we needed, and what was available to meet the state's requirements all at a very competitive price. This was a big job effecting every room in our house and the installation team did a great job in keeping a fast pace and the mess under control. They were very professional during the whole process and clearly know what they are doing. The new windows are solid, tight, smooth operating and look great. I gave them a "B" on punctuality only because their window supplier was late in delivering a few of the windows. So, it wasn't really their fault but late is late.

Great experience from start to finish. Highly recommend. Estimate was performed quickly and then...wait for it...the final price was the same as the estimate. As if that wasn't enough, they started when they said they would and did our entire house (a dozen windows) in three days including inspections (in Coral Gables!). Workers did top notch work. Not a drop of dust in the house. Could not recommend more highly. Great work!

I called this company to replace a window pane, when my husband died he fell into his chair and the chair hit the window and cracked the glass. I found this company in yellow pages and called because they had a number related to this part of the country i spoke with someone who told me she would contact her person and get back to me, I believe that was Monday, no one called me so, I left a message on Tuesday, still noone called me back, I called again on Wednesday and the lady apologized for not getting back to me and said," I am so sorry, we will make this up to you" so here it is Friday and still noone called me on Thurs or today. I just wanted to put this company out there so other people can see how they run their business. I am disappointed that I even called them at all. They should not be in business if they do not at least call back and set up a time to come out here.The lady sounded very unprofessional also.

It didn't. We had one appointment about a month ago that I was not able to keep due to a family emergency. On 8/26, I received a call on my cell phone to reschedule. As a prior review mentioned, they insisted that both my husband and I were home for the estimate. Well, we work different shifts and are not home together during the week so it was incredibly difficult to find time. Finally, because the sales person was so pushy, we set a time for 10:00 a.m. on 8/28. I was working from home and rearranged a prior appointment so I was available. This requirement for both of us to be home is entirely unnecessary. My husband is a fully capable adult and can relay information to me from an estimate - he is also fully capable of making decisions without me.
On 8/28, this company called my home phone at approximately 8:00 a.m. to confirm the appointment. They spoke with my husband and he confirmed everything. I then received FIVE CALLS on my cell phone within the next 90 minutes (8:15, 8:52, 8:56, 9:17 and 9:41) - not one message - from the company. I didn't answer as I was on a work call at the time and wasn't available to talk. No one ever showed up for the appointment. The appointment for 10:00 was confirmed over the phone by my husband less than 2 hours earlier, and no one showed up. No message, no attempted call on the home phone, nothing.
I also was originally approached door to door because they were "doing work in my area." It wasn't until later I realized that this door to door tactic is actually against city ordinances unless they have a permit to do so. Rest assured, I won't make that mistake again. I read the company response to another review and it says, "when we leave a sticker price and aren’t able to deliver the estimate to both homeowners, the individual that was absent isn’t aware of what is built into the quote..." but as I mentioned, my husband is fully capable of relaying that information to me. My opinion is that they want both of us there so that they can push for a signature on the spot for the work. Every other home improvement estimate we have ever received included a statement of work. I wouldn't know if this company offers one since they never showed up for our CONFIRMED appointment, but if not then I wouldn't do business with them anyway.
Overall, I am extremely frustrated with this company and their business practices. Pushy from the start and relentless to the end, not following through on confirmed appointments, and some very questionable requirements for an estimate all reinforce the decision to not agree to a reschedule (if they even offered it) and eliminate this company from any future projects we may have.

Overall experience was amazing. The installers were very professional, nice, took the time to explain details about the windows. We are very happy with our new windows and it's made a huge difference.
