Re: Wheres a good place to order windows from?

I replaced all of my windows with American Craftsmen (subdivision of Andersen) from big orange. All of them have done just fine - with only one needing replacement.

Wheres a good place to order windows from?

Hello folks..

I need to slowly start replacing windows in my 16x80. Looks like they built openings between 16 on center studs meaning 46 1/2 wide and 30 1/2.

Anyway. Does anyone have a recommendation for a outfit that sells windows to fit the original rough openings?

Thanks

Are low taxes worth investing into a old mobile home to make it more energy efficient?

Hey everyone! I'm new around here. I bought a mobile home in the middle of nowhere 45 minutes from town last year because of the beautiful 360 degree views, and the fact taxes are a tenth of what I pay for my brick and mortar home in Iowa City.. I will not live in town after I retire in 7 years beca...

Re: How to Select the Right Ceiling Fan

Ive learned ceiling fans cool the hot ceiling pushing the hot air down to you.. Use a floor box fan.
