YKK window opinions?

Posted by JSpann (My Page) on

Does anyone have an opinion on these YKK windows? I realize we're just talking about a vinyl window here, nothing fancy/built to last a millennium... we're in TN, someone said to look for .27 or lower for double pane/double hung - but what about these single hung? This lumber yard also carried Ellison but we weren't super impressed by how they functioned (hard to open/shut...).
Thanks for any thoughts you can offer!

Chinese garbage IMO. The .19 shgc would indicate 2 layers of low-e, and to only get a .30 u factor with that is atrocious. Keep shopping.

RE: YKK window opinions?

Not sure about the windows being junk or not but the numbers are terrible.

Bad SHGC and very dark for crappy thermal numbers.

RE: YKK window opinions?

Do you happen to have any recommendations for vinyl window brands found in middle Tennessee?
Also, What shgc should I am for?
... Time to hit some more suppliers, the search continues!
Thanks :)
