We're looking to replace the ill-fitting double hung double
glass windows in our only 16 year old home. The windows should
be original units, but they come apart easily like a sash kit,
the sashes pretty much pop/tilt in with a tug from their plastic
track, then tilt to remove, and 3 screws hold side tracks in. The
top and bottom only have stops, no felt/weatherstripping etc, most
have actual (and visible) gaps to the outside creating a nice draft.
So, first stop - a little self education, and listen to a few
1. Is there a way or a resource that could ID what the windows
actually are (built in 1988, Leesburg VA, Penn Builders on the docs
left by the po). I'd also like to ID the french doors, dual swing
in a sort of CC on the hing is the only identification I see).
2. Anyone heard of Oxford Windows? These had a nice sales pitch and a
seemingly good warranty, and install included the exterior wrap (we don't
have our estimate yet). A search of news found no hits - curious.
Thanks! (New owner of not very "old home")
