"The entire process went very smoothly. First stopped by our offices to examine the glass that needed the privacy film. He quoted a price," which was the best price we had been given, ordered the film and installed it about a week later. Still looks perfect. It was a pretty straight forward job and everything went well. I would not hesitate to call again if I needed anything tinted.

-Edward D.

"I have used three times now over the past few months and wound up installing various films on all of the windows in my condominium. Each" time, the process of getting an estimate, scheduling the work and performance of the job has been flawless. , my estimator, and all of the installers I worked with were highly professional, skilled and very friendly. was always a pleasure to deal with on the phone and the cost is very reasonable given the time and skill involved. I had thought about doing my first job myself and looked in to purchasing the material and figuring out how to apply it. Trust me, it's not worth it. You will most likely drive yourself to tears if you try to cut and apply adhesive films like this and do it without a single bubble. If you have to make multiple attempts to get it cut and applied correctly, you could easily consume film exceeding the cost of having the job done professionally. Call . I can recommend without reservation. I'm just a bit sorry I'm out of windows!

Angie's Answers


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.




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. 

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.

Window Tinting Or Film reviews in Arlington


I recently had the pleasure of meeting a few of the last true Gentlemen in this world... and they tinted my windows! If you are looking for a Tint Shop who guarantees quality work and appreciates your business, stop right here. located in Brooklyn NY just recently tinted the windows on my 2016 BMW M235i. The quality of work was ...More outstanding. They took great care to avoid dust contamination by hosing down the shop floor prior to commencing work. They were fast, methodical, precise and the proof is in the end product. My car was given a quick rinse and wiped down with clean towels that left no scratches. There is a level of pride in this Shop that I rarely see, I was truly impressed. Pricing was on par and industry standard. I have had my windows tinted from Las Vegas to Florida... these guys are truly excellent. If you're located in NY, NJ, PA, CT or even DE... it's worth your trip.
- Matthew R.

I have a tile company of my own, and I always need good work at a good price for my customer. the only guy I call.
- Jimmy T.

Called company, called and arranged time to come to home, discussed our needs, gave estimate, date to install. came on date we choose. He was on time, very professional, informative and great price.
- theresa B.

was very professional throughout this whole process - from the first gentleman who answered my initial phone inquiry to who called and came out to give an estimate to who did the scheduling and follow up and to who did the installation. The resulting film ...More looks great as you cannot even see that it is there. It was a pleasure to have this company do this job.
- Mike T.

Both doors were done in one day. was courteous, responsive and efficient. As others have noted these screens are night and day compared to the old school iron bar doors. They are light, strong and take up less space. Instead of looking like eyesores, they add to the house. You will never go back to those heavy iron bars and doors again.
- Denise D.

Contacted the because of their "A" rating on Angie's List. An appointment was set up within a few days of first contact. They arrived on time and immediately began work. explained the properties of the security film he was applying. The work was done quickly and expertly. ...More explained the set up time of the product and told me if I had any problems he would be happy to correct them. I'm very satisfied with their work and the product. I would recommend this company.
- William H.

Excellent! They were on time arrival and worked very efficiently through the day. They did a great job in both prep and site clean up. Very courteous & friendly and treated us with respect.
- Bill & Lynne B.

was very professional, responded within a day or so of my request for services, and was able to some just a few days later, dependent on my schedule. He came on time, showed me my options and discussed the pro's and con's of them, and set up a date and time to do the work, which was only a few days away. He again ...More showed up on time, did an excellent job of applying the product, and cleaned up after himself. The film looks great, clear, but definitely cuts the intense light and heat that was coming into my skylights and front windows.
- Sarah S.
