Don’t try a DIY bay window installation.
Can you spot the differences between a bay window and a bow window?
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: email@example.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.
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.
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 Harrington
Replacement was expected in early/mid June 2015. It took 6 weeks for a replacement window to be ordered and manufactured.
On the first scheduled date, they broke the replacement in transit. Another window had to be ordered. Today, 6 weeks later, replacement #2 comes and it's the wrong size. Mind you this was a replacement to a champion window that was already installed at the house.
So in 6 weeks I'll know whether they manage to pull this off or not.
I'll certainly never buy windows from them in the future based on this experience.
We experienced 3 different crews throughout the course of our project. The first crew simply never showed up. The second crew (an older gentleman in his 80’s named
I could write several pages detailing everything that went wrong, but here are some highlights:
- Having to store all materials in our home for a month since the first crew never came and
start date back without consulting us. This included several 26-foot-long boxes of vinyl siding that had nowhere to go but the main level of our home, where they sat for weeks. (We were told
- After the disastrous first attempt, we looked into breaking the contract and taking our business elsewhere.
that the materials that we paid for that were sitting on our property belonged to him. We consulted a lawyer and this was absolutely not the case. We decided to give them a second
- Incorrect ordering of several of our materials: two windows were ordered in the wrong size, 4 inches off (so those took an additional three weeks to come in), the shutters were ordered in the incorrect color, as was the corner trim.
- Having to fund the project entirely on our own, including paying the manufacturers/painter directly for the materials and
paying several more deposits along the way so that the crew could purchase materials like nails. One of the days
- Appalling clean-up of the final siding crew. They lost our doorbell, trash was left all over (I’m still picking up pieces of trim and nails/screws when doing yard work almost a year later), their personal trash was thrown into our yard waste bags, and someone’s sweaty t shirt was simply left in the middle of our driveway.
- Arguing with
We waited a long time to write this review because we wanted to distance ourselves and share our honest experience with some perspective. Even now, almost a year later, I'm horrified to recall everything we were subjected to. We are reminded of the stress and agony every time we pick up another nail or screw from our landscaping. After all this time,
Do yourself a favor and stay far, far away. Find a company that communicates with you and that doesn’t ask for a dime, apart from a deposit, until the project is completed and done to your satisfaction. And if you're really feeling brave, our advice to you: do your homework. Not just on this company but on the individuals themselves. You need to know exactly who is working for you, so do your due diligence.
In about 2 or so weeks, i called to enquire about the order. I was told they were on the way on a truck and was told someone would call me back on Monday to schedule installation. They did not do so. I called a week or so later and was told the window still wasn't in (and given what seemed to me like attitude that i was bothering them). Another week or so went by and finally the last window arrived and finally they installed the last one.
The install job in all cases went well and they were very professional. Given that this was 8-10 months ago, I've had a
Still, overall i was satisfied with the job and the windows are very nice, i really like them. I wish they'd delivered on time and when promised, and not had promised but not delivered on time on the one window.
