Pella window--replacements


#1

i heard the "pro-line_pella window can be used as replacement even though they say they are for new construction. they hava flanges(nail fins) on the sides?


#2

techincly nail fins can be cut off but why would someone use a top of the line window and not order it as a replacement?


#3

its a nice looking window. wood on the interior and coiled alluminum on the inside.its a cheaper pella listed for new construction but supposedly you can use it as a replacement due to where or how the flanges are positioned.

Sounds like a hack job to me. WHen i order windows i order what is needed for the job not what i can make work. I dont know about this guy.

ditto…pella is a very exp. window…its like buying a corvette, and using as a work vehicle because you can fit a hammer in the passenger seat. yeah it will work, but why would you?

if you feel this uneasy about the work that is being done…dont do it.

I agree with Marshall & GTP.
Replacing windows is pretty strait forward.
Your installer shouldn’t have to make anything work, they should be drop in replacements.
Make him order the right replacements.
