Help Pella Upcharges
This may be long. In order to solve a morning light problem in our east facing bedroom, we instructed our contractor to go to Pella double hung windows with the blinds between the panes. The first quote was about $2900 for four windows, 3 different sizes (I expected about $1000 per window). Today the installers were here to make a final measurement, and all of a sudden I have found that they originally quoted "pocket" type replacements, and I will lose about 5 inches of pane per window. Well, that was not acceptable to me, so we discussed full frame replacement. My new quote is nearly $6000 (including permits) and that is with the contractor's discount! This does not include replacing and painting the exterior trim, or finishing the interior trim. At this point I am willing to walk away from Pella. Is there any other window that has the blinds between the panes? Has anyone else had promlems like this with Pella? BTW we are in metro Denver, CO.
