Funny, you learn how to spell ANDERSEN correctly on your website.:laughing:
Great advertisment. :huh: More customers are gonna see your mis-spelled word than mine (check out your website)and I will spell Kolbe & Kolbe correctly. There is no Anderson Company any more, they went out of business years ago, in the early 90's. Unless your still installing Ander-s-o-n Windows, from years ago. I was typing fast and didn't spell check, I apologize for the mis spelled word "koble."
Understood. I'll be sure to point that out to my web guy... BTW, you spelled ADVERTISEMENT wrong.:laughing:
Also, your website says you install Ander"son," which uses fibrex, unless your a switch and bait contractor advertising you install Anders"e"n then installing a off band product. I install some Anderson wood windows by request. Someone as "industry savvy" as you surely knows that the fibrex Renewal product is an exclusive to those dealers. That being said, I would not install it even if I could. It is a decent product, but waay overpriced IMO..
I knew install Pella Proline, from previous posts which isn't even a mid band product!HUH??? I can't respond to jibberish.
Your site mentions nothing of Marvin Windows or Weathershield? Again, a switch and bait contractor advertising a band name product and pushing a different product. Not at all. I am very upfront with my clients in that I will install any product that they like. There are certain products that I prefer and I give reasons for that.... So what does your website advertise? Oh, that's right, you prefer to make your ignorant posts anonymously.
I don't understand, if you know about the Pellaclassactionlawsuit.com that your still advertising you install a product that is going to court on a rott issue. Great customer service. Look at all the states involved in the lawsuit against Pella and the web sites. I have seen several subdivisions of these so called view to be the best Pella Windows that have rotting windows, most around 8yrs to 12yr old windows have rotten, aluminum clad poping off the styles and rails, not all the windows rott. But why take a chance. The biggest companies will always be the biggest targets for litigation. Once again, I am NOT Pella's number 1 fan, but there are far worse products out there. BTW, I've seen rotted 10 year old Anderson's as well.
I was trying to make a point on vinyl windows that most companines are crap and I should not have included Gorell Windows and Ply Gem which just posted $70.9 million dollar loss during the first quarter so lets hope they can stay in business, if they can't how good are there warranties then? Really? Come on now. Both of those companies are on very solid financial ground. Despite a 1st quarter loss(not unexpected given the circumstances), why don't you quote PlyGem's other numbers (total revenue, profitability in other periods, etc)... This is one of the largest manufacturers of building products, who incidentally is actively acquiring other manufacturers, and no, I don't mean garbage like Andersen's vinyl acquisitions... It is funny (and ironic) that you disparage HD, yet you promote their primary window offering (Andersen) as being the best.
I'd still recommend Kolbe Window triple pane than a vinyl window such as Gorrell, few a few dollars more, twice the quality product. Once again, please explain why. Do they last longer? Perform better? ...They sure do look nice though.... at twice the cost:thumbsup:
Home Depot does charge over$1000 to $1100 plus for installed Siminton(SP?)
Window, which I can buy for about $150 to $175 cost. Have the Home Depot At Home Services come out and measure just to see their prices on the install which is a rip off. I have seen their prices, and they are not even close to $1000. Maybe its a regional difference... or maybe you just made that up like most everything else that you say.:yes:
You couldn't work for me any way, I'm not a manager, but you need take apart several windows and see what their made of before you say I don't know. Yes, I was wrong on a couple of statements and should not have said several things, but I was making a point, that most xyz windows rate their own windows and take measurements from the best part of the glass, instead of the center of the window. Seriously?! You do realize that the COG rating (center of glass) IS the most efficient point of a window assembly don't you? COG ratings are used by companies with inferior products to try and "trick" people into thinking that theirs is superior. The total unit rating is the REAL rating, and is what is found on the NFRC label... and btw, those ratings (and AAMA) are taken by independent third parties.
I was trying to make a statement, of why would anyone buy a Simonton Window for the same price as a Andersen Window? Why buy a triple pane vinyl window when you can spend a few dollars more and buy a Kolbe & Kolbe Triple Pane Window. Because it will last longer, perform better, and offer less maintenance.
Why would any spend a $1100 for a window installed by Home Depot? I don't know. They shouldn't.
When you can buy the top of the line Marvin Window and have installed for less. And why buy vinyl ''plastic'' window, when you can spend a few dollars more and get a real product. A "real" product that will be outperformed and outlasted by "plastic"??.... Again, they all have their pros and cons. Just quit the bs and be honest about it.
Its funny how all the vinyl companines state they have the best products, you have to read between the lines on the warranties to find out what your really getting and the all the gimmicks, you know because you use them.
