On Wednesday, October 27th, our fixed windows arrived! Chris and the delivery man from AAll Glass unloaded them through the east door and he allowed us to sort them a little, taking the western panes to the far side of the house and keeping the eastern windows close to where we were unloading.
We were most impressed with AAll Glass. The quote came in when Jim said it would. It repeated our window sizes, with prices attached. He indicated all the details we’d asked for, so we knew he’d understood what we wanted. He quoted all six operable windows and because we hadn’t indicated whether we wanted them tempered or not, he gave two alternatives. He answered questions when we called to clarify. He indicated a delivery range and he was bang on (we knew the operables would take longer and we are still waiting for those). They leant us three suction cups so we didn’t have to buy any.
We didn’t see the same level of eagerness from the other glass company we requested a quote from.
As of yesterday (29th) with help from Robin one day and my Dad on another, we placed all the glass and Chris and I have been replicating the extruded aluminum exercise. This time there is more gasket to insert, but less measuring as this round is window caps and the placement was completed with the base round.
Friend, Jackie, commented that she didn’t envy the person whose job it was to wash the windows. If I’d been quicker I’d have replied, “you wash windows???”
