Low-E glass or sun-blocking window film: Which stops the heat better?
If you think your energy bill is too high, you might consider installing energy efficient replacement windows to help cut the costs of heating and cooling your home.
Finding the right window replacement contractor is as important as choosing the best replacement windows.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Air infiltration rate is way high at 0.21.
It may look nice in person but the performance numbers are below average.
Window Replacement reviews in Atkins
The representative was kind, not high pressure and we felt comfortable moving ahead with him. We signed that day for the upstairs windows and then added the downstairs windows a few days later. Signing that contract was a big mistake.
Note: Before signing the contract I asked the factory representative about the cancelation policy. He told us if we couldn't go through with the deal to call in and cancel the project, that it wouldn't be a problem. I felt it was important to ask since it's a huge expense and we needed to know what would happen is we just couldn't go through with it for any reason.
About two weeks later they came to measure the windows. During the measuring process on Friday 10.2.15 we learned more about the windows we had signed up for and how they would be installed. We weren't convinced after learning more about the installation that we would be satisfied with the with product. Since install manager said he was going to order the windows the following Monday 10.5.15, we reached out to Champion both Saturday and Monday telling them of our decision to cancel the order. I emailed the factory rep and spoke with him on the phone relaying our decision, I also spoke with the office and finally the sales manager.
That's when things went down hill. The office manager and sales manager told us canceling the contract was not an option and we're on the hook for the down payment (which I never made, they just hit the credit line I opened with them within a few days of signing the contract without notifying me.) When I emphasized I did not want to move forward in an way, the sales manger was clear with me there was no canceling the contract. Even though no windows had not been ordered and no work has taken place at our home we were beyond our 3 day right to rescind, we were on the hook for a down payment. When I mentioned referenced the conversation my wife and I had with the factory representative, the manager said the factory rep. could no longer recall that conversation.
We should not have signed without reading more carefully this contract. In the bottom 2/3 portion of the front page it does state that we have three business days to cancel. We feel this would have been an important detail for the factory representative to cover especially since we asked about their cancelation policy. We also do not see anywhere on the contract the penalty for cancelation, or that we would have to forfeit a down payment before any materials were ordered or services had been provided. The contract also says that "verbal promises can cause misunderstandings, therefore this contract and the accompanying limited warranty constitutes the entire understanding of the parties." If we understand this correctly, no matter the details we discussed in person about the project, the contract is the final word.
Unfortunately the contract has no specific detail in it about how the windows will be installed. We are reluctant to have them here at all since both the factory representative and the installation manager gave us specific details about the installation when they were on site, but the contract notes only the window style they would be installing and not a word about install procedures other than they would use standard practices.
The relationship between Champion and my wife and I is damaged and we do not wish to move forward in any way with their services. We hope they will respect our decision and end the agreement.
