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.

They measured and gave a good price. Later came and installed the product. When I had the house re-inspected for insurance I saved that much every year. It well worth the money many times over.

They arrived on time and started to work in a very organized manner. In no time our installation was complete and they left our home the way they found it with absolutely no clean up required on our part. They even washed our windows on the outside after their job was done. We were extremely pleased with every aspect of their work and would definitely recommend them to anyone seeking their services.

previously installed verticals for 2 sliding glass doors and 3 windows several years ago. These have been the only blinds I've had that I never had any issues with despite lots hard use by kid and dogs, so I had them install for the remaining windows/slider. I originally ordered at the end of 2014 and it took about 4 weeks for the blinds to be installed. The install was super fast except for the sliding glass door vertical. The issue was that the inside top of door had a slightly smaller measurement than the middle where the measurement was taken. The remaining blind was installed about 2 weeks later. All of the blinds look & function great. Based on how the original install has held up, I expect these verticals will last a long, long time. I'd definitely recommend this company. Great product, reasonably priced and friendly professional service.

came out and measured our windows and doors to see what sizes of screens we needed. He was wonderfully punctual and professionally dressed.
Raleigh Security Film Provider Name Locked
explained what our options were and recommended what he felt would help with the intense heat from the afternoon sun that was coming in our front windows. My concern was what the sun was doing to our antique rugs, collectable dolls and the fabrics and wood on our furniture. Our windows are energy efficient but I can tell you the heat that was coming from the unshuttered windows was very intense. We took

's advice and when the solar screens were delivered and installed, we were delighted with the results. It is amazing how the solar screens cut down on the intense light and heat. Now, when I touch my furniture where the sun is shining, I don't feel the heat anymore. I am very pleased with how the screens look on our door and windows, both inside and outside the house. The panels that

ordered the panels from the company that supplied the actual garage doors so they fit perfectly. I am amazed how much cooler our garage is in the summer and how much warmer our garage is in the winter. The varnish cracking on our front door is no longer an issue since the installation of the solar screen panel. We felt that

Our home is over 3,000 square feet and I keep the thermostat on 70 for the entire summer. Our electric bill has not been over $200, which we consider very reasonable. I would highly recommend

We could not be happier with the services provided by
Raleigh Security Film Provider Name Locked
and his wife (who works with him). Even though I had supplied
Raleigh Security Film Provider Name Locked
with all the necessary measurements, he offered to come out to our home to check out the installation site in order to avoid any unforeseen problems. He did so, and we scheduled an appointment for him to come back three days later for the actual job. On both occasions, they arrived as scheduled (or texted me if they were running late) and completed the installation in less than an hour. Both

and his wife are professional and personable. They were respectful of our home and our belongings, and, after they left, everything was as clean and neat as they had found it. And the total cost was extremely reasonable. We will definitely recommend

to our friends. (In fact, we already have!) And we intend to call him again later in the spring in order to have our car windows tinted.
One note: Before contacting
Raleigh Security Film Provider Name Locked
, I read a review from another Angie's List member who complained that she discovered (after the fact) that security film does not provide the protection for which she had purchased it, giving
Raleigh Security Film Provider Name Locked
an undeservedly low grade because of that. I want to be clear that
Raleigh Security Film Provider Name Locked
does not misrepresent the product or services he provides. He was very knowledgeable about the film, its installation, and its care & maintenance. For example, he advised me not to go with 7 mm film, saying it was more appropriate for commercial installations, while recommending 4 mm film instead, even though he obviously could have charged me more for the thicker film. And he was very clear that either thickness of film is intended only as a deterrent. It will not stop a burglar from gaining access to your home if he is determined to do so. However, it will make his attempt cumbersome, even possibly dangerous (because the broken glass will not fall away), and, most of all, time-consuming and attention-getting.

Owner Nick Karamitros came to my building, and he personally took all measurements of windows, then gave me a written, signed contract for the total job, requesting 1/3 down and balance upon completion of the job. I gave him down payment and he began job. On second day of installation (Friday 12/19) he sent text message that he would finish entire job by 5pm that day and wanted final 2/3 payment. As it got closer to end of day he requested check early so he could "get to bank before closing so he could do Christmas shopping". He never came back. Said he ran out of film and couldn't finish job that he claimed would be finished by 5pm that day. Nick contacted me the next day saying he had to order more film and I had to pay him nearly $500 MORE than the original contracted price IN CASH before he would show up to finish the job. If he measured wrong, cut wrong, ordered wrong or doesn't know how to use his own calculator, then he is responsible for the mistake, and no ETHICAL business owner would try to stiff a customer for his own mistake. He has been paid IN FULL the contract amount but left me with botched half-done job because I refused to pay MORE for his mistake. The really unscrupulous, unethical thing he did was knowingly walking out on a half finished job and getting his full payment early by playing on "the Christmas spirit". Shame on me for letting the "Christmas spirit" shield a scam artist. He knew before he weaseled the final payment early that he had no intention of finishing unless he tried to scam me for more money. NICK KARAMITROS IS A CON ARTIST WHO IS NOT TO BE TRUSTED!!!
