Window question

Recommended Posts

We have this dual pane w/grill window on the front of our house. The glass cracked on the upper left corner.

Can the glass be replaced on these or do I have to replace the entire slider section?

Thanks

I'm sure it depends on manufacturer. If you know or can find the manufacturer I'd give them a call and see what they say. I doubt just the glass can be replaced as most of the time those frames are fused together at the joints. But depending on manufacturer they may be able to supply you with the single window, or you may need to replace the whole assembly.

Here's a picture of the actual window. I have some packaging tape on the crack right now. I want to say the manufacturer is Vinylite.

Have you checked with a local lumber yard?

I had something similar happen at my place. They were Andersons (Anderson windows suck) and the local lumber yard was able to get me the glass portion without having to replace the entire window.

Call a glass company. UP here White Bear Glass can do a lot with a lot of different things.

It looks like it could be a Hayfield window? If it is I think I paid around $220 for the window for a customer of mine.

It looks like the broken one is the stationary sash. They aren't as easy to swap as a operating sash.

The cheaper vinyl companies are typically harder to get replacement parts/glass for. Andersen, Marvin, and the other big companies are really, really easy to get replacement glass for. A rule of thumb with windows, if the manufacturer has their name visible somewhere on the glass/frame, their a good company. If you cant find a name, they don't want you to know its theirs.

I'm not familiar with Vinylite, but a quick google search points to Vector Windows out of Fergus Falls, MN.

DTRO, wasn't your house built by Novak-Fleck. More then likely it is a Vinyl-lite then. They also used Acorn windows too, but Acorn went out of business years ago. Donlin in St. Cloud replaced the glass in our windows. Any lumber yard should be able to get you glass to replace yours.

Yeah and how do you know they built my house??? grin

You are right though.

Thanks, for the suggestions I'll dig into it a bit further. Might be one of those things best left to pay someone else to do.

And yes its on the stationery portion, not the slider.

It is my great super sluthing ability. grin I remeber from another post of yours a year or 2 ago when you were trying to figure out your garage outlet and you mentioned they built your house. It stuck with me, since our first house was through them also. I actually built some of them out of highschool. I have known them for years. Good luck

    • My slicer works well yet at 130 and it's not almost fully cooked.
    • Thanks for some of the tips. I will try it in the next couple of weeks when i have time. I have read to smoke till about 150 internal temp does it make a diffrence if it goes to 130 or 150?
    • that makes 2 of us. Not sure what the deal is but going back and looking at old posts its doing the same to those pics as well. and there were no issues with those prior.   maybe has to do with the site being down over the weekend and some changes were made? @Rick
    • Looks good to me rundrave.  Is it just me or my phone, but the pics are on roids and I need glasses to read what's typed all of a sudden...
    • I've done both wet and dry brines with much better results with the dry. As grainbelt stated you can mix up whatever sweetness you like. Here's a simple one but pretty good. Its ALL per pound of meat.   1- Tbsp of tenderquick  1.5 Tbsp brown sugar  1/4 tsp black pepper  1 tsp garlic powder ( optional) Mix all the spices together and coat the belly , depending on the size you might have to cut it in half,  this is when you do that and stuff em in two 2 gallon ziplocs.   You can add some maple syrup to the bags as well,flip them  every day for 6 or 7 days then rinse them off real well,  put them on a wire rack and place back in the fridge uncovered. Next day smoke , and like grainbelt said your target internal temp is around 130, let them cool off and wrap up in plastic wrap for the next day of slicing. It might sound a lot of steps but its not that bad, with great results!! Good luck.    
    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
