I Am Wanting To Price 'Garden Windows' For My Kitchen....?
...Does Anyone Know Of A Good Website To Find These? What Is Another
Name For Them? I Have Tried To Find Them And Not Having Much Luck. Is It Possible To Order Them Online From Somewhere? Can We Install Them Ourselves? Is It Possible To Make One. I Was Told They Are About 1200-1500.00. Is This True, If So Why So Expensive? Do They Come In Different Sizes- Width, Height, Style?
Has Anyone Had One Of These Type Of Windows Put In A House Before? Give Me Your Experience. Do You Think It Is Worth It? Do You Like It? Good Or Bad If You Got One, Where Did You Find It?
We Have One Now In The Place We Rent And I Would Like To Get One When We Move To Help Make The Kitchen Look Bigger And Nicer. Is There Another Solution Instead Of This Type Of Window That Would Be Great But Not As Expensive? Give Me Your Ideas And Thoughts Please.
The Place We Will Be In Doesn'T Have Windows On One Hole Side Of The Apt. This Is An Add On To A House, Converted Two Car Garage And Some Extra To Equal Approx. 700 Sq Ft, If That! Not Real Big. A 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath.
...Garden windows will be pricey, no doubt about it. We took out a $300 window and paid $900 for our replacement which we installed ourselves.
They come in a wide variety of sizes, but you can order any size 'custom' garden window at Lowes, for example. My guess is Sears and Home Depot will do that for you too.
Lowes sells Pella windows, a name brand. And, you can go to Pella.com yourself for a free estimate.
Anderson.com will do the same thing for you.
These windows are not hard to install if you are half-way 'handy', but they should always be at least a
two person job because they are bulky.
The reason they are so expensive is that most everybody in the business makes them 'to order' - keeping these windows 'in stock' takes up a lot of room in a warehouse.
We got one because we got a deal. If we had to pay the $1,300 for the job just to get some tomato plants started a little early I doubt we would have done it.
They are nice for growing seedlings and whatnot, but a good gardener does a fair amount of 'misting' of the plants. Eventually the window will need a good cleaning. It takes about the same amount of time to clean 6 windows as it does to clean one garden window. Eventually it gets to be a pain in the butt.
We like ours, we think it's worth it - we live in zone 6 (gardening zone) and still have tomatoes in June which is way earlier than anybody we know of in our neck of the woods. Thanks to the window...
My 'idea' is that if you like the look, and the use of it, you really ought to get one in your new house. There are some websites including diy.net, for example, that have videos on how to install these windows. If you are not sure how to go about it I recommend watching a video a few times, meanwhile find out who is your "handiest" neighbor. Get his favorite beer or a brand he would buy if he could afford it, his favorite lunch food, and maybe even get his Missus a few posies at the flower shop. Look at the videos anyway, in case you see something he is doing that you want to question. He might want to stuff in some old insulation in gaps. It's a good idea...you might not know that if you're not handy.
Bear in mind that while you will get your money back when you sell the house later on down the road, but if money is tight there are other 'quality of life' changes you ought to make first...Especially if you are going to have to make the hole where the window will go. That's labor intensive, probably requires a permit and an experienced craftsman. Not sure that would be 'worth it', although getting more light into the living space will definitely be welcomed. I would do it, but we are serious gardeners.
One last thing - the direction the window faces is fairly important. If it's going to be on the north side of the house it's a waste of money.
Best of Luck to you...
How Do I Install My Own Windshield?
Is It Passible For Someone Who Isn'T A Mechanic? I Do My Own Car Repairs, But I Dont' Know How To Glue On A New Windshield. Does Anyone Know?
I would not recommend that you install your own windshield as the windshield is a structural part of the car. An incorrectly, or illegally installed windshield could not only lead to leaks, but it could also be a safety risk for many reasons.
To remove the old glass you can start cutting it out with a razor knife, and finish with a strong piano wire held by two visegrips in a sawing motion.
The opening should be cleaned.
Lay the new glass in place a move around to make sure it is correctly positioned in the opening, then run masking tape from the glass to the body at the top and sides. Cut the tape exactly at the point between the glass and body. You now have alignment points to get the glass back in exactly right as you only have one chance.
Prime the glass and the opening.
Apply urathane windshield adheasive to the opening.
Lay the glass in place. Water test immediatly
When the urathane is cured, remove the tape.
