Frequently Asked Questions

You can use more than one type of weatherstripping or seals for irregularly shaped air-gaps, spaces etc. Some common types of weatherstripping: tension seal, Self-stick plastic (vinyl) folded along length in a V-shape or a springy bronze strip (also copper, aluminum, and stainless steel) shaped to bridge gaps in windows and door rails, stiles and sills; The shape of the material creates a seal by pressing against the sides of a crack to block air gaps, and drafts.
Inside the track of a double-hung or sliding window, top and sides of door. Surfaces must be flat and smooth for vinyl. Can be difficult to install, as corners must be snug. Bronze must be nailed in place (every three inches or so) - Do Not Bend or Wrinkle. Can increase resistance in opening and closing doors and windows which may not be a good thing if you have back problems. Self-adhesive vinyl is also available.

Weatherization and Free Assistance with Parts, ID Help and Local Assistance Programs to assist the needy, the elderly, wounded warriors, or the unemployed.

The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) enables low-income, needy, unemployed veterans,  families to permanently reduce their energy bills by making their homes more energy efficient. Funds are used to improve the energy performance of dwellings of needy families using the most advanced technologies and testing protocols available in the housing industry. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) provides funding to states, U.S. overseas territories, and Indian tribal governments, which manage the day-to-day details of the program. These governments, in turn, fund a network of local community action agencies, nonprofit organizations, and local governments that provide these weatherization services in every state, the District of Columbia, U.S. territories, and among Native American tribes.
The energy conservation resulting from these efforts of state and local agencies helps our country reduce its dependence on foreign oil and decrease the cost of energy for families in need while improving the health and safety of their homes. During the past 33 years, WAP has provided weatherization services to more than 6.4 million low-income households. Families receiving weatherization services for free will see their annual energy bills reduced by an average of about $425.00 - please contact you local electri and gas company or welfare assistance office. \

Applying Window Weatherstripping and Seals ( Video Tutorials )
 
To determine how much weatherstripping you will need, add the perimeters of all windows and/or doors to be weather-stripped. We suggest you add 5% - 10% for miscuts and waste. Also consider that weatherstripping comes in varying depths, widths and lengths. Weather-stripping supplies and techniques range from simple to the very technical, so you might consider calling someone who does local window and door inspections and surveys, or do your homework and read the instructions and project outlines on the weather stripping package.

One of the best online window and door sources is to visit the YouTube Channel Link: http://tinyurl.com/mo2fbjf
 

First you might want to review some YouTube Video DIY Tutorials for the various aspects of working with older windows and doors and saving money - One of the best online window and door sources to visit on YouTube is: http://tinyurl.com/mo2fbjf

Begin by determining how many window and doors you will be working on and how much weatherstripping you will need - add up all the perimeter dimensions of all windows and doors to be weatherstripped. Secondly, add 5% - 10% for miscuts and waste.

Also consider that weatherstripping comes in varying depths, widths and lengths. Weather-stripping supplies and techniques range from simple to the very technical, so you might consider calling someone who does local window and door inspections and surveys, or do your homework and read the instructions and project outlines on the weatherstripping package.

Here are some basic guidelines:
 • Weatherstripping should be applied to clean, dry surfaces in temperatures above 32°F 
 • Measure the area to be weather-stripped twice before making your cuts.
 • Apply weatherstripping snugly against both adjacent or adjoining surfaces. Be sure to inspect the material - it should compress when the window or door is shut, making a good air tight seal..
  • When weatherstripping doors, be sure to choose the appropriate door sweeps and thresholds for the bottom of the doors.
 • Weatherstrip the entire door jamb - not just the part that might look "worn" or in need.
 • Apply one continuous strip along each side - no "piecing together" of smaller cuts.
 • Make sure the weatherstripping meets tightly at the corners to prevent air or misture flow.
 • Use a thickness that causes the weatherstripping to press tightly between the door and the door jamb when the door closes without making it difficult to shut.
  • Use the proper weather strip - for instance if you have a metal entry door usually the seal gasket set is magnetic. 
  • For air sealing windows, apply weather stripping between the sash and the frame. The weather seals / stripping should not interfere with the operation of the window.

A replacement insert window is installed into the existing window frame. Insert replacement windows are usually installed by simply cutting out your old widow sash and stops without disturbing the interior trim or exterior trim or siding of your home.

Full frame replacement windows are appropriate when the entire window needs replacement, for example, when it's substantially out of square, you want OEM equivilant installation and insurance replacements, or has deteriorated beyond repair. The window, including sash, frame and casing is replaced.

OEM / OEM Replacement Upgrade Parts, OEM Equivalants all designate a replacement part made to all the exacting original specifications that were used by the original parts manufacturer. This original equipment part - OEM ( Original Equipment Manufacturer ) will most always be made to Original Specifications

YES YOU CAN - most original OEM parts, weatherstrips, kerf seals, locks, latches, tilt latches, hinges, slide tracks and crank operators are normally produced to original OEM manufacturer specs or supplied by another source to the original assmebler or manufacturer. Door and Window weatherstripping parts from a trusted supplier is most likely to meet all "original" specs and will align properly to your windows and doors.

It most definitely matters - using original OEM parts, weatherstrips, kerf seals, hardware parts such as locks, latches, tilt latches, hinges, slide tracks and crank operators or wood replacement parts and components can make the difference between an almost 100% restoration and an early system failure at best. You see, choosing the right weather strip products for your specific windows and doors to original OEM manufacturer specs will provide weather seals and weatherstripping for your windows and doors made from the proper materials and a unified assembly. These will not break down or apart during installation or while in service over the years. The correct attention to detail will prevent such issues as out of tolerance parts, T-slots cut incorrectly, kerf-barbs of improper length or width, and many other issues with other improperly fitting specialty brush seals, plastic or poly bead component parts etc. Door and Window weatherstripping parts from a trusted OEM supplier is most likely crafted from top grade components to meet all "original" specs and will align properly to your windows and doors and do a much better job for years to come

It most definitely matters - using original style parts, properly designed weatherstrips, correct kerf type seals, bulb seals, foam seals, pile seals can make all the difference in the world when it comes to restoration projects and eliminates the chance of early seal failures. Choosing the right weatherstripping products for your specific brand and type of windows and doors will provide weather seals and weather strips for proper installations, air-tight sealing, prevent issues such as as out of tolerance and gaps, and many other issues.

Yes there are for some different brands and types of windows and doors. This may be one of those areas where getting some professional advice will be worth it's weight in gold. Once installed or used, you can't return any product. If it doesn't work as originally intended this can cause very pre-mature loss and damage to a window or door system. So you definitely want good information on using common types of weatherstripping and seals.

Sometimes you can use more than one type of weatherstripping to seal an irregularly shaped space, or on a certain style of window such as a casement or awning style made of wood. You would also want to take durability into account when comparing different weather strips and seals. Also cost may become a factor. Please refer to our site "tables" for information about the common types of weatherstripping.

Choose a product for each specific location. Felt and open-cell foams tend to be inexpensive, susceptible to weather, visible, and very inefficient at blocking hot or cold airflow. However, the ease of applying these materials may make them valuable in low-traffic areas, provide overall "look and function" are not major issues. Vinyl, which is slightly more expensive, holds up well and resists moisture. Metals (bronze, copper, stainless steel, and aluminum) Weatherstripping Products last for years and are affordable - but not so much as they used to be. Metal weatherstripping can also provide a nice touch to older homes where vinyl might seem aesthetically unappealing or out of place - just a few issues to consider when selecting or shopping for weather strip.

For a thorough and accurate measurement of air leakage in your home, you might want to hire a qualified service technician to conduct an energy assessment. You may already know where some air leakage occurs in your home, such as an under-the-door drafts, around your old windows, on certain walls and ceilings - but you'll need to find the less obvious leaks and gaps to properly air seal your old house.

You might also want to do a blower door test which depressurizes your home and can reveal the location of many air leaks. A complete energy assessment will also help determine areas in your home that need more insulation. Without a blower door test, there are ways to find some air leaks yourself.
Visual Inspections with a thread and a small light feather, on the outside of your house, inspect all areas where two different building materials meet - exterior corners, outdoor water faucets, siding and chimney areas, areas where the foundation and the bottom of exterior brick or siding meet.

Inside your home, inspect around the following areas for any cracks, gaps, cracks in drywall, around electrical outlets, switch plates, door and window frames, trim, electrical and gas service entrances, crawl spaces doors, baseboards, weather stripping around doors, fireplace dampers and chimney caps, attic hatches, wall or window mounted air conditioners, cable TV and phone lines, dryer vents, other venting and fans - all will help to stop the air leaks.

QUESTION:  What is Laela’s Law all about? I read it's supposed to help stop injuries and deaths due to children falling through open windows - is this true?

QUESTION:  What is ASTM F2090-2008 and 2010 standards relating to WOCD - window devices?

 

The Minnesota Senate recently passed a window fall prevention law known as Laela’s Law, which aims to stop injuries and deaths due to children falling through open windows. The law is the first in the Nation to address the problem of improving window safety to prevent falls. Laela’s Law is based on the new ASTM F2090-2008 and 2010 standard, which has been adopted by the International Construction Council (ICC). The ICC code is expected to be rolled out state by state. The measure was dubbed “Laela’s Law” after a two year old who fell through the screen of a fourth-floor apartment in a nearly new building. Senator Linda Berglin said that it requires the State Building Code to be updated to mandate fall-prevention devices on windows that are used on residences.

Owners of apartment buildings and those involved in the multi-housing industry have a duty to care for their tenants’ safety. Laela’s Law applies to new building and remodeled/replacement windows, however children are still falling out of existing windows, which presents a huge potential liability to the property owner. Laela’s Law enacted in the following 31 states as of June 2013: CA, CO, CT, DC, DE, FL, IA, IL, LA, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, MS, ND, NH, NJ, NY, OH, OR, PA, RI, SC, TN, TX, UT, VA, WA, WV

What is meant by "handing" on a Case-master casement window?
What is meant by XO, OX, OXO, XOX handing on my windows?
What is the most common error made on casement window parts ordering?

 

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Casement Windows

 

NOTE: Handing of casement window operators is one of the most common home owner errors - please pay close attention and determine proper "handing" as we do not exchange units without charge. For example, look at the casement window sash lock - if the sash lock is on the left side of a casement window - THIS IS A LEFT HANDING UNIT. Most casement hardware, which includes locks, operators and hinges are handed based on the sash lock location when viewed from the interior - Not The Location of the Crank Handle.

 

  • How to Determine Window Handing refers to the direction a window or door opens and is easy to determine. "X" is used to denote the operable panel and "O" refers to the fixed or stationary panel.

  • Window and door handing is always determined looking at a window from the exterior of the home.

  • Horizontal Sliding Windows: To determine whether you require an XO or OX window simply view the window from the exterior of your home. If you want the sliding panel to be the one on your left choose XO and if the operable is to be on the right choose OX. XO OX Vertical Sliding Windows: Use X and O differently.

  • With single hung windows only one panel is operable and it is always the bottom panel.

  • On double-hung windows both panels are operable.

  • Since vertical sliding windows are preset as to how their panels move there is no need to specify handing.

  • Casement Windows: are the same except that casement window crank out rather than slide from side to side. So handing in this case specifies which side the hinge is located on. they are called FCL when the hinges are located on the left side of the frame and FCR for when they are located on the right side of the frame.

FAQ'S - How Can I Figure Out What Type of Windows I have from the Glass Code Stamping?

FAQ'S - How do I Find the Manufacturer's Name For My Old Windows?

The easiest way to immediately identify a window is by locating the name of the manufacturer itself on the product somewhere? Some companies, like Acorn, Biltbest, Caradco, Hurd, Marvin, Malta, Oldach,  and others stamp their name on the window hardware - generally on the handles, sash locks or other window or door hardware. Look carefully inside the insulated glass spacer bar ( between the panes) .. sometimes in very small stampings you'll find information. (The spacer bar sits in-between the two sheets of glass in your window or patio door) - it runs clear around the edge of the glass.Some companies like Andersen, Pella, Better-Bilt, Shelter, Outlook and Windsor will have their names "etched" in the corner of the glass; Other companies like Crestline, SNE and Vetter are all known to not place their names on units - instead they placed a string of letters and numbers on their products and unless you know exactly what these letters and numbers mean - you'll have a hard time to determine what kind of window it is.

Finding Identification Codes on old Windows or Doors; Most windows sport a glass code, which typically references the date and manufacturer; This code is typically found etched into a corner of the glass or stamped or printed on one of the four sides of the spacer channel which separates the two panes of glass. Many aluminum and vinyl window manufacturers belong to the AAMA, the American Architectural Manufacturer's Association. This association uses a small sticker to denote certification, typicallly applied to the window frame or sash, and is about ½” wide and 3 ½” long. Among the information on the sticker is the manufacturer's code and the identification of the series of window. This code needs to be converted to know who makes the window if the name of the company cannot be found elsewhere on the product. Unfortunately, in many cases, the original manufacturer has gone out of business.

Homeowners are getting smarter and more adept at repairing and restoring their own homes. According to statistical data, large urban area home owners are growing tired of long waiting periods and high prices of home remodeling and repairs in today's economy. Sure, many factors fuel the obvious: Big cities offer more opportunities, economic or otherwise - which appeal to younger homeowner's - seeking advancement in their careers and social lives - as well as building equity in their homes.

 

The big box stores offer easy access to diverse options of remodeling and decorating - but offer comparatively scarce options when it comes to restorations and repairs of 20 to 40 year old windows and doors! But big box stores and fast-paced city life requires tradeoffs, too. Higher cost of remodeling and lack of parts, not to mention the lack of expertise with real restoration work. Poor experience levels and lack of knowledge is often the chief complaint of homeowner's searching for restoration and replacement hardware and parts for windows and doors made and installed prior to 2010 .. followed by sales pressure to just rip out and replace .. and start all over. 

To help homeowners - we offer Free Parts Assistance and ID Services for all window and door parts - helping to find the best replacement parts no matter where you live.

WHAT IS MULTIPOINT DOOR LOCKING HARDWARE ALL ABOUT ?

The best way to describe multipoint door locking hardware is to contrast it with the more common single point hardware found on most doors.

• A single point mortise lock consists of a latch and deadbolt only. The deadbolt provides the single locking point between the door and jamb.

• A multipoint mortise lock has multiple locking points which simultaneously lock into place through the action of a continuous travel drive rail or rod system usually activated by lifting the door handle.

• Some shootbolt systems provide three locking points - at the deadbolt, at the top shootbolt (where it enters the top jamb), and at the bottom shootbolt (where it enters the sill).

A window balance is a somewhat hidden window component sitting inside the window frame and behind the sashes;

What they are, the different styles, and how they work?

What is a window balance?

Are there different types of window support spring balances?

How can I tell what type of double hung window balance I have?

My window will not stay up (open) and falls back down - What is the problem?

 

 

First things first -- what is a window balance? A window balance is a somewhat hidden window component sitting inside the window frame and behind the sashes; It’s only found in double hung or single windows and assists you with opening of the window by "counter-balancing" the weight of the window sash as you open and close your window. They also hold the top sash of double hung windows closed while they’re not in use .. or "open" in the appropriate position. There are several different types of window balances and some other important issues - Single Spring, Double-Spring, Hidden Style Balances, Number Stampings, proper measuring, identifying parts of a balance .. and more?
 

So let's begin by saying most people are Confused by Balances?!?!? Channel Balance Assemblies are very unique and are extremely difficult to identify for most people. The combinations are literally infinite for the Top and Bottom guide ends, and over the years many changes and improvements. Many times there are The minimum orders for balances because Channel Balances are a custom made to order and take approximately 2 - 3 weeks to make. BEST WAY TO GET IT RIGHT? - send us a sample for matching. Next best thing .. good measurements and good pictures.

Common questions about window and door parts? Roto-Gear Hardware? Door Handle Sets? Window Glazing Bead? Weather Strip? Wood Sash Replacements? - so many questions from homeowners?

Some common questions we get day in and day out? -- do we have Replacement Parts? Roto-Gear Hardware? Handle Sets? Double Hung Parts? Single Hung Parts? Glazing Bead? Hinges? Patio Door Hardware? Sash Locks and Keepers? Weather Strip? Wood Sash Replacements? Casemaster Parts? Ultimate French and Wood-Ultrex Bay & Bow Windows? Sliding Patio Door parts?

 

The short answer is YES! .. The longer answer is - Yes, but maybe not a paticular "brand" because most window and door brands "change' designs from year to year .. always marketing? Trying to "improve" .. or differentiate from the competition .. yet some products may be "universal" in many aspects. While there may be subtle differences in minor details, the shapes are much the same and more importantly, the "functionalty remains the same" - If you send us the right information - WE CAN HELP !! .. and pictures ARE WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS!!

 

Can we get jamb-liners for our old Biltbest windows? What is a vinyl compression track called that holds the spring balances?

 

The common question we get is, do we have jamb liners or the plastic side jamb tracks that hold the window sash up ? Do we have thease for specific brands of windows like Bilt-best, Best-Bilt, Builtbest, Caradco, Pozzi, Crestline, Craftline, Peachtree, Hurd and many others?

The short answer is YES! .. The longer answer is - Yes, but maybe not that brand .. and here is why - most brands of double hung and single hung windows used a standard or particular profile that may have been universal across their product line. Yes, while there may be subtle differences in minor details, the shapes are much the same and more importantly, the "function" is the same. Here are the main three pieces of information you need to send to us - and we can help!

1.  The COLOR is either - White or beige.

2.  The LENGTH.  Measure from the top of the jamb liners to the long point of the angle at the bottom AND the "short point" - Dimensions "A" and "B" - The standard lengths run every 4 inches to the 3/8″ of  an inch.  This should be, or close to, the  length you have.  We can cut  standard length jamb liners without affecting the operation. However, you should not get a length over 3/8" or more than  3" away from the next standard size.

3.  PLOW or PROFILE SHAPE.  This is the shape of the track on the jamb liners that match up to the groove cut into the side of the sash.

 

BILTBEST STANDARDS - Long Side maeasurements are as follow:  38 7/16" , 46 7/16", 34 7/16" , 50 7/16", 54 7/16", 62 7/16" , 66 7/16" , 70 7/16" , 74 7/16" , 78 7/16" 
 

Do You carry OEM Original Style Jamb carrier Tracks for Biltbest Double Hung Windows?

Can we still get jambliners for our old Biltbest windows?

What is a vinyl compression jambliner or carrier track that hold the spring balances?

Can You Help me with my double hung / single hung window balances replacements? Adjustments?

Can You Help me with my double hung window balances and adjustments?

If the sashes are difficult to slide, or if they feel too loose, some adjustment of the balance clutch mechanism may be necessary. If the sash feels loose, increase tension by turning the small adjustment screw on the clutch mechanism clockwise. If the sashes are stiff, turn the adjustment screw counterclockwise. Do not over-tighten this screw or it may strip the threads (no more than four full turns maximum are recommended).

How do I lubricate my single and double hung windows?

Always clean all surfaces before applying lubricant. Once cleaned, lubricate the vinyl balances with a simonized paste or with paraffin. Spray the sash edges with a silicone spray to maintain sliding ease.

 

Are there any painting restrictions for double / single hung windows? 

Do not paint the weatherstrip, hardware, or vinyl balances. Do not paint sash edges that ride in the vinyl balances.

Double Hung Screen Removal

  1. Raise the bottom sash to expose the screen plungers. Pull the plungers to disengage the bottom of the screen.
  2. Lower the top sash completely. Pull out the plungers to disengage the top of the screen. Pull the screen down slightly and push it outward.
  3. Bring the screen into the room by tilting it through the window opening.
  4. To replace the screen, reverse the above procedures.

Combination Storm and Screen Insert Removal

  1. Completely raise the lower sash of the window unit.
  2. Push the finger pulls of the lower storm sash toward the center of the sash and pull the unit toward you to release. Angle the sash until the storm panel pops out.
  3. Follow the same procedures for the screen.
  4. Lower the upper storm panel and remove it as you removed the lower unit.
  5. To re-install, reverse the above procedures.

How to Figure Out What Window Manufacturer or Brand Name Is your Casement, Awning, Single or Double Hung Window Your Home Has.

 

Window Parts ID and Window Brand | Identification Help and How to Figure Out What Window Manufacturer or Brand Name Is your Casement, Awning, Single or Double Hung Window Your Home Has.

The easiest way to immediately identify your windows is by locating the name of the manufacturer itself on the product. Some companies, like Acorn, Jeld-Wen, Biltbest, Caradco, Truth, EntryGard, Hurd and others may stamp their name on the window hardware ( original proprietary parts ) like the handles, cranks, sash locks, operator covers, other hardware. Look carefully when inspecting hardware: many companies buy their hardware from other manufacturers and this hardware can be found for a multiple of brands of windows like - ALENCO, ALSCO ANACONDA, ALWINSEAL, AMACOR;  In the same way, if window parts have ever been replaced, they might not have been made by the same company that created the OEM Units. 

Other companies, like Marvin, Keller, Malta, Oldach, Outlook, Kolbe & Kolbe, Andersen, Anderson, Arcadia, Bayform, MilGard, and others have their information stamped in the spacer bar channel. (The spacer is in between the two panes of glass on an insulated unit in your window sash ) and runs clear around the edge of the glass - Brands like Thermalgard, Traco, Weathercraft, Wenco, Andersen, Shelter and Windsor - to name a few .. etch their names in the corner of the glass or into the spacer bar. There are also some companies that don't put their company name anywhere on the window. Crestline, Vetter, Columbia, Craftline, Crestline, Crossly, Dayton and others are known to have done this. Sometimes you will find a string of letters and numbers ( stampings ) on their products. Unless you know exactly what these letters and numbers mean, it can be impossible to determine what brand of window you have. Email or call us at: (719) 531-0961 to help you figure it all out.

Many aluminum and vinyl window manufacturers belong to the AAMA, the American Architectural Manufacturer's Association. This association uses a small sticker to denote certification. This is typicallly applied to the window frame or sash, and is about ½” wide and 3 ½” long. Among the information on the sticker is the manufacturer's code and the identification of the series of window. This code needs to be converted to know who makes the window if the name of the company cannot be found elsewhere on the product.

Measuring Visible / Exposed Glass On Your Window

When looking to order a replacement window sash you must know the size of the old window. Measuring the exposed or visible glass will give you measurements you can cross-reference with manufacturer's catalogues, if available. Visible glass dimensions that are greater or less than 5/16” of a standard size are normally custom-sized window products; Some wood window manufactuers like Marvin, BiltBest, Caradco, Rockwell, Malta, Oldach and Others have built custom windows to any size. When not sure about your glass measurement, it is recommended that you take the sash apart and measure the exact width, height and thickness of the insulated glass, the sash frame and even the inside frame measurements as well as the date of manufacture or when installed in your home. Try to gather as much information as possible.

Color Variants In Vinyl Snap In Window Glazing Bead

 

We are asked all the time - Why do glazing bead colors vary? .. or change? .. from time to time? The vinyls and plastics used in the manufacturing of window and door glazing bead change from supliers and manufacdtureres - there is no industry standard except in maybe black or white colors. A dye lot coloration is only the exact same in that vat at that time. Paint and dye manufacturers assign each lot a unique identification number and slight differences in temperature, dyeing time, and other factors can result in different shades of the same color between different dye lots of otherwise identical production. Resins, solvents and other industrial products hold together the pigment in suspension, provides surface adhesion and determines the quality and durability of a product. The pigment is in a powder form much like concrete, and the average aftermarket paint color system includes numerous colors or toners to mix in various formulas from different suppliers. Theory vs Chemical Reaction .. The colors are mixed to exact specifications and all coloras from that lot will be exactly the same even after sunlight, drying and ultraviolet exposure. However, if the same formula is followed at another temperature or humidity on another day, that lot of colors can be a different shade and sometimes in some of the related colors it can be another color altogether. Therefore, we usually tend to talk of colors in a "range" from one bead to another is not going to match perfectly .. but will be within that range of colors .. when application is finished or installed - and not really noticeable.

Some series of the Biltbest windows have wood sash frames that are covered on the exterior with a roll-formed aluminum clad ( a layer of aluminum ) .. this cladding was a definite upgrade back in the day .. so many homes were built using the "wood only" sashes .. this cladding provides additional protection for the window frame by strengthening its resistance to outside weather such as hail an pre-mature wear and tear, finish and paint degredation etc.

All old Biltbest window sashes can be easily retro-fitted with aluminum clad in sandstone, white or bronze aluminum clad .. saving much maintenance on re-painting etc. as aluminum clad has greater strength and resistance to dents, fading, chaulking. and no paint peeling from sun exposure.  Want to discuss?

Millennial Questions, NPR Listeners, Facebook & Twitter Fans

 

Young millennial couples ask us all the time - [NPR Listeners] Facebook and Twitter [Questions] [LGBT] Can my partner and I do this type of project on a weekend? 
 

ANSWERS:  http://goo.gl/4631Er  .. your old Biltbest double hung and awning / casement windows can be upgraded and repaired by most homeowners with minimal experience. Items like Biltbest double-hung window jamliners and balances - a big source of drafts and energy loss in homes built before 2005. Replacing the weatherstrip, Jambliner Tracks is simple, and the basic renovation steps will cost only a small fraction of the cost of a replacement window unit.

 

ANSWER:  Jamb liner kits made of vinyl provide fully weatherstripped channels for old sashes to ride in. These replacement jambs, [carroer tracks] give the window a heat-loss efficiency equal to many double-glazed replacement windows. The new replacement jamb-liners have weatherstripped tracks that fit old window sashes. See the [manufacturer listings] of your jamb liners. There are specific instructions about measuring for the liner - or just email us: Info@BiltbestWindowParts.com

About BiltBest Jamb Liner and Balance Replacement

Q.  Jambliner and Balance Replacements - Can My Wife and I DO-IT-OURSELF  [YOURSELF] 
Q.  Jamb Carrier Track and Spring Balances - Can My Wife and I do this type of repair?

Visit:  http://www.biltbestwindowparts.com/content/biltbest-window-jambliner-jamb-balance-carrier-track-double-hung-windows

 

ANS:  Old, Biltbest double-hung windows - can be the largest source of drafts and energy loss in your older home if built before 1980's. Replacing even a modest Biltbest double-hung window may cost as much as $1450, but it can be renovated for a fraction of the cost using a jamb liner or new jamb carrier track system. Years of opening and closing, the settling of the house and effects of the weather take their toll on a window, the wood sashes, the weatherstrip parts, the jamb balances, the meeting rail weatherstripping, bottom stile and sill stop seals and more. Although these damages were done to the windows over years - the renovations take only a couple of hours per window.

Home Owner Problems and Complaints .. bitching about BiltBest Windows 

 

I hear it day in and day out .. Homeowners lamenting one complaint after another .. blaming their problems on their BiltBest Windows - WHEN VIOLA!! .. We start talking and asking questions ..

 

One after another .. I have a situation with my BiltBest Windows .. it's the same on two of my windows  .. I can’t locate the part or parts I need .. my casement cranks won't work .. where can I find the BiltBest Window Parts and Hardware for my windows? .. what about my Bilt-Best Patio Doors? 

Does anyone know where I can find replacement window parts?
My neighors are having the same problems with their windows.
How can I replace the BiltBest glass in my window sash?
BBB complaints on record fopr Bilt Best windows in my house - Can You Help me?
Anybody know anything about BiltBest Winddows & Doors?
Where can I buy a replacement sash for older biltbest tilt out windows? 

Sometimes the answers are so simple .. here's a typical example where the weatherstrip seals are cut to short ..

 

 

.. five different sizes of weathered old windows - looking for original replacement for the weather stripping.

 

Hello, we are refinishing and reglazing all of the Truth windows in our 1976 Wausau home. 

The five different sizes of windows had a finished wood look on the inside, and some had a very weathered coat of primer on the outside.  I have no idea if this is how they originally came, but it does seem that they had never been refinished. We are having trouble locating a replacement for the weatherstripping.  A few pieces were salvageable, but much of it was missing or severely cracked.I attempted to upload these images to your website. Thanks for any help you can give!

Depending on other types of windows .. single hung .. double hung .. casements or awning style windows. There can be up to three (3) different types of weather strip on a casement window unit.  Some are on the sash frame and some are mounted to the window frame itself. Some have one type at top and bottom "horizontals" .. and different ones at "verticals".  There are also some OEM Style "uprade" seals available that will do a better job of sealing out the weather.

#1  JUST REMEMBER .. if your weather strip is that bad in "places" .. it should all be replaced ..

#2 Do all your repainting or staining first .. and be "careful" about getting paint or stain into the "kerf tracks" .. the narrow cuts into which a weather strip sets.

#3 Then install weather strip - cut at corners "as closely as possible to fit at joints without any "overlapping"

Should I buy new vinyl windows instead of restoring?

 

 

Vinyl windows of all kinds have made their way into the market-place over the past 15-20 years, being touted as energy efficient, more durable, and a cheaper alternative to wood and clad windows. Once you step back and take an objective look at the claims, here are a few findings from people in the business.

 

FACT: Some vinyl windows are in fact energy efficient in theory. However, most are constructed using hollow extrusions which offer little in the way of R-Value (resistance to heat transfer). The glazing itself may or may not be very efficient depending on the type of glass specified. The weather stripping, a key element to window performance, is hit or miss in my opinion; some manufacturers get it right, but many don’t pay enough attention to this simple detail & as a result the performance of the unit suffers. The operating hardware is another often overlooked area. Too often, low quality hardware is used and because of its poor performance, the window doesn’t seal well when closed and locked. This hardware is often acquired from low budget suppliers that import or fabricate the hardware overseas. Rarely is a "name brand supplier" like Truth or EntryGard used. ( The Best In The Industry ) WHY?

In contrast, most manufacturers of wood windows, clad windows etc. purchase their hardware from one of a couple of well established industry leaders - ensuring the availability of replacement parts for years to come.

Aluminum, steel, vinyl and fiberglass window and door products

Over the past 10-50 years many window and door products companies have come and gone. Aluminum, steel, vinyl and fiberglass window and door products, with manufacturing and distribution networks accross the USA, Canada and Mexico. Gone out of business for many reasons - poor management, the economic times, big debt from fast growth, lack of capital - so many reasons.

Over the years our associates have purchased obsolete Inventories and bought out entire product lines from some of the following companies and we can provide or make most of their replacement parts.

stamping numbers on operators, hinges and slide arms

 

The stampings and numbers found on the operator parts etc. are the hardware mfg's numbers that start with a # series and are usually die casting numbers, and since the die cast housings are used on about 20 different versions of Truths operators and more on hinges and slides, could be from different "series" over the years.

 

The best way for you to help us help you is to determine which operator you have may be from numbers off the arms and links. On some Truth Entrygard Products you will find numbers stamped on the Housings and Arms. The numbers will help us "narrow down"  which Truth product you have, and from that we can make a educated guesses as to what you have.  If you are still not sure - nothing works better tan "matching" parts or schematics. REMEMBER .. you may be looking for the "exact replacement part" -----  when an OEM UPGRADE has now replaced it?

The Real Costs of New Replacement Windows

What are the Real Costs of New Replacement Windows vs. My Old BiltBest Units?

After spending about $17,000 - $35,000 dollars on properly installed, high-quality replacement windows ( the average home has between 24 and 30 windows, replaced at an average of $ 500.00 - $1,200 each ), a typical household might save about $60 a month on heating or cooling bills. However, if a house is actively heated or cooled for an average of six months a year, the savings amounts to only $320 a year. At this rate, it would take 40-50  years to even begin to recoup in energy savings the amount spent on the new windows. (Note: These figures assume that the windows are paid in cash or with zero percent financing. If the amount of interest paid on the total cost of the window replacement project is added, the payback period will be even longer.) By following some no- and/or low-cost methods to improve your home's energy efficiency, you can easily save that same $50 a month on your heating bills without an outlay of thousands of dollars.

Going green is about more than just energy performance

Does Energy Efficiency Trump Preservation? Going green is about more than just energy performance. To determine real environmental impacts, one must take into account the embodied energy of the new and existing windows, the environmental impacts of manufacturing new products, and the expected lifecycle of the product. Embodied energy includes the energy required to extract the raw materials, transport them, make them into a new product, ship the product, and install it. Existing historic windows have all of this energy embodied in them. Tearing out historic windows for replacement units not only wastes embodied energy, it requires additional energy to remove and dispose them. This is on top of the energy required to create and install the new windows.

Restoration of my original BiltBest windows - know for sure.

I've heard the case made for and against the restoration of my original BiltBest windows - How do I know for sure?

Replace? .. or rehabilitate? .. that is the question - a question many home owners ask. Something to keep in mind – not everything you read about replacement windows is true. Windows are often significant character-defining features of older and historic homes, and this alone is important and should not be overlooked or discounted in favor of perceived energy savings. With routine maintenance an older BiltBest window can perform well and continue to function for many years to come. Rarely can a new replacement window match the design aesthetic or material of original BiltBest windows, unless you spend a ton of money! This is not to say every old window should be saved - yet, all too often, windows are replaced unnecessarily without considering the impacts or a cost-benefit analysis. Instead, owners might consider asking some questions first and exploring the options and benefits.

Are my windows an important architectural or defining feature? .. can I retrofit my Biltbest window sashes to achieve greater energy efficiency? ... Will replacement windows last as long as my originals? .. Are there more cost-effective approaches available like new weatherstrip and sash glass upgrades? Will new replacement windows "fit" the character of my home or detract from it?

Go Green - be Environmentally Responsible

What about the replacement window hype of being the "Environmentally Responsible Choice"? Going green is about more than just energy performance. To determine real environmental impacts, one must take into account the embodied energy of the new and existing windows, the environmental impacts of manufacturing new products, and the expected lifecycle of the product. Embodied energy includes the energy required to extract the raw materials, transport them, make them into a new product, ship the product, and install it. Existing historic windows have all of this energy embodied in them. Tearing out historic windows for replacement units not only wastes embodied energy, it requires additional energy to remove and dispose them. This is on top of the energy required to create and install the new windows.

Statistically, it is virtually impossible to recoup, in energy savings, the amount of money spent on replacing your old BiltBest wood windows with new windows before the new windows need to be replaced. The average person in the United States stays in the same house for about seven years. When it takes upwards of 40-50 years to recover in energy savings what was spent to replace the windows, the expense will never be recouped. Other studies have found that it can take as much as 222 years to recoup in energy savings

what was spent on installing the replacement windows. Furthermore, the typical replacement window often fails within about 20 years. So, in the time it would take to recoup the original replacement windows, statistically, the replacement windows will already have had to be replaced at least once.

Maintenance Free? .. replacement window hype

What about the replacement window hype of being so much more Maintenance Free?  Replacement windows are not maintenance free, though they may be easier to clean. This maintenance-free claim is most often used with companies that sell vinyl and aluminum windows. These windows simply cannot be maintained nor repaired. Traditional wood windows are composed of interlocking parts made from natural materials, and any part can be repaired or replaced. Vinyl, aluminum, fiberglass, and composite windows are manufactured as a unit and the components cannot be repaired. When a part fails, or the insulated glass seal breaks, or the vinyl warps, the entire unit must be replaced.

Take the time to read the fine print

What about the replacement window hype being so much better because they are guaranteed?

Big American Myth - Replacement Windows are Guaranteed? .. Many window replacement companies promise that by installing their windows, you will save 40% - 50% .. on your heating or cooling costs, guaranteed. However, if you read the fine print, you'll find that if you don't save that 40% - 50% .. the maximum amount they will refund you is $500. - GO FIGURE? So, after spending tens of thousands of dollars to replace your BiltBest windows and then experiencing little appreciable energy savings, the guarantee isn't equivalent to your investment is it?

Many windows come with "limited lifetime warrantees." Again, take the time to read the fine print. Even the better quality replacement windows limit the "lifetime" warrantee on the glass to 20 years, installation to two years, and the non-glass components to ten years.

You'll note that the "lifetime" better describes the lifetime of the product, not your lifetime or the lifetime of your home. Even more revealing is the fine print that describes what is not covered by the limited warranty. Also, notice that the warrantees are only good if the company that issued them is still in business when you need have the window replaced. Not all warrantees are transferable, or are only transferable within a certain amount of time from when the windows were installed. This means that if you purchase a house that has already had its windows replaced, your windows may no longer be covered by any warranty.

 

AND FINALLY .. take BiltBest as a "prime example" .. out of business in 2010 and over 60 years in business as a leader in the new window field - where were all the waraties and gtuarantess then?

are replacement windows better than my old BiltBest units

Should I believe the sales hype about new replacement windows being so much better than my old BiltBest original units? No. If your existing Biltbest windows are wood, wood/clad - they can be made to perform just as well, if not better.

 

WHY NOT CONSIDER THE MYTHS? 

Myth #1: Replacement Windows Will Save You Money - On average, replacing windows with new, higher-quality replacement windows (when properly installed) could save you about $50 a month on your heating or cooling bills. However, this is after spending an average of $17,000 - $35,000 dollars to install the new windows. If you heat your house an average of six months a year, the savings are about $300 a year. At this rate, it would take 50 years to even begin to recoup in energy savings the amount spent on the new windows. (These figures assume that you pay cash or with zero percent financing. If the amount of interest paid on the total cost of the window replacement project is added, the payback period will be even longer.) Even more important is the payback, or rather the lack thereof - The average person in the United States stays in the same house for between five and seven years.

Bilt-Best Casement Windows can be Energy Efficient

Can I make My Old BiltBest Casement and Double Hung Windows Perform Well and be Energy Efficient?

A growing body of studies is demonstrating that a BiltBest wood window that is properly maintained, properly weather-stripped can be just as energy efficient as a new replacement window. Many people find that upgrading the original glass to LoE 272 or LoE 366 Insulated glass is even more efficient than having a new double-pane window unit installed. This is because the new glass technolgies that were not available 20 30 years ago.

Biltbest window repairs are good for the local economy

Can My Old Windows Be Repaired?

Traditional windows are made from individual parts. Each piece – the rails, stiles, muntins, stops, sill, stool, jamb, etc. – can be individually repaired or replaced in kind. Vinyl, aluminum, fiberglass, and composite windows are manufactured as a unit, and the components generally cannot be repaired. When a part fails, or the insulated glass seal breaks, or the vinyl warps, the entire unit must be replaced. In addition to being a "green" alternative, repairing and increasing the energy performance of existing wood Biltbest windows is good for the local economy, as hiring a window repair specialist to refurbish windows creates skilled local jobs.

Sales hype and magazine ads about new windows

Should I believe the sales hype, TV and magazine ads about new windows being better?

Sure .. if you are gullable and poor at math! .. or follow every way the wind blows.  

Old BiltBest Windows "Fit" Their Old Openings better ..  as they were all custom installed to fit their specific window openings. Old BiltBest Windows Can Be Repaired, Upgraded, Renovated and Restored.  Each opening is probably a little bit different, especially because natural materials react to their environment. For example, wood typically shrinks during dry weather and will swell with increased humidity. Older windows may have shifted and changed with their openings as the building aged.

wood windows made from mahogany or other hard woods

Why aren't new wood windows made from mahogany or other hard woods?

These woods may be an option, and will tend to be denser and of higher quality than plantation-growth southern yellow pine, for example -- However, these high-grade hardwood products can be very expensive. Also, if window replacement is being considered for sustainable reasons, it is far greener to retain and repair an existing window than to have timber shipped thousands of miles to be manufactured into a new product. let's not get into global warming and carbon foot prints - OK?

when it comes to selecting wood for windows

What is modern wood vs. old growth wood all about?  .. Modern wood derived from tree farms grows fast due to management practices and the application of fertilizers. This is not necessarily bad because we need a steady supply of lumber for all sorts of uses. However, when it comes to selecting wood for windows, speedy growth is not always better. Fast-growing wood not only has growth rings that are further apart, but also a higher percentage of earlywood or sapwood. This earlywood is rich in sugars. Wood with more widely spaced growth rings is less dense and therefore not as durable. The sugars feed the tree as it grows, but are also attractive to insects who don't care if the wood is a live tree branch or your window sill.

Biltbest awning and casement windows are great!

Why do my old Biltbest awning and casement windows matter?

Reason #1: Old Windows were built with high quality wood materials. Some wood windows were even made from what we call "old growth wood". Old growth wood has distinct physical characteristics that can make it superior to newer materials. For instance, this wood is denser and more durable, rot resistant, and dimensionally stable. Also, wood used to make windows was most likely harvested more locally, making it better suited for climate conditions.

Old Bilt-Best windows are worth keeping

Why are my old BiltBest windows worth keeping? Windows are character defining products and features of any home - and BiltBest was an architectural leader in their day .. things like their sizes, placement, proportional relationship to wall spaces, timeless styling, and materials - all these contribute to how your home looks and feels.

 

Just ask yourself - " do my original Biltbest sashes and windows retain a higher degree of architectural integrity than a comparable house in my neighborhood with vinyl replacement windows"? Where original Biltbest casement. awning sashes are preserved - homeowners seem more satisfied.

Restoring Bilt-Best windows from the 1970's and 1980's

Are my original BiltBest windows in my home from the 1970's worth restoring?

Would you throw other authentic 1970's pieces or memorabilia in the trash?  Then why would you install vinyl versions of the same size windows because of sales hype about energy savings or false claims about return on your investment? Remember - you already own your old BiltBest Windows and Doors - they are paid for aren't they?

 

Seems ridiculous doesn't it? However, this is precisely what home owners do all over the country because of sales hype!

Make your old Biltbest windows more energy efficient

Maybe this frequently asked question will inform and inspire some to action? .. Can I restore my old BiltBest Windows and make them more energy efficient?

Why do the original BiltBest windows in my older 1990's home matter? What do they contribute to my home? For so many reasons, the original windows of older homes are what make them places with character and memories. Consider it this way:

 

If you had a beautiful piece of art that was custom designed, hand-crafted, made from real wood - would you throw the authentic piece in the trash dumpster .. just because a plastic or vinyl version became available? - I DOUBT IT!!

low demand and talk for air sealing and weather stripping

Why so much sales hype and advertising about replacement windows?  

Have you ever wondered why there are no ads for "replacement fireplaces" .. or "ill fitting or missing dampers" ? These items leak more heat than all your BiltBest windows - but salesmen don't leave flyers for new dampers in your mailbox, do they? WHY? ..

One reason homeowners replace their original BiltBest windows is because they can immediately see a difference when a window is replaced - DUH? Even though a project like sealing air leaks with installation of new weather strip may be all you need .. and many times save more energy than total replacement windows - there is low demand and talk for air sealing and weatherstripping services.

Sales hype and advertising myths about old BiltBest windows and patio doors?

Why so much sales hype and advertising these days in getting rid of your old BiltBest windows and patio doors? 

Windows are an easy target and are all too often blamed for all our homes energy losses. Homeowners jump to replace their old Biltbest windows because sales people and window companies promise that their replacement windows will not only save them time and money, but that their products and services are the "green thing" to do. The facts prove that a thriving window replacement industry has grown around the perceived need to replace rather than restoring what you already own.

Go Green - keep old windows and doors

Windows and Doors are the most visible .. and yet most commonly understood and under appreciated parts of older homes or historic homes and buildings. While being beautiful, original historic windows also serve a great purpose – they impart a building's inside and outside character and connection to their surroundings. Not only for ventilation and light, but also function as emergency egress. They offer visible clues to a building's history and aspects of architectural design.

This package for 1/8" TRACK includes: Thirty-Six (36) Lineal Feet of 1/8" Black By-Pass Track.

First of all, thanks for your question. You know that 1/8", 3/16", 1/4" and 1/2" Plexiglass, PolyGal, Glass and Lexan are expensive - so your budget may be an important factor. However, depending on materials selected, always remember that longevity is also of the utmost consideration. I usually suggest a 1/8" Lexan material from Home Depot or Lowe's - but my first choice is the 3/16" thick plexiglass - good durability and strength over the long term.

Insulating Glass Dew Point Testing - IS IT NECESSARY?

Insulating Glass Dewpoint Testing and Dewpoint "glass testing" helps to determine if insulated glass seals are performing well or if they are near a point on a "failure curve". Test equipment is broght in to test the dewpoint which occurs inside your insulated glass units using an ASTM E546 methodolgy.  Insulated Glass Frost/Dewpoint test equipment. The dewpoint inside the insulating glass is a good indicator of the unit’s quality and longevity.

ASTM C1036, ASTM-E77 Test Methods, ASTM E576 Test Methods, Frost/Dew Point of Sealed Insulating Glass Units,

How can I increase the thermal properties of my window glass?

In its simplest formula - a single pane of glass 1/8" reduces heat loss by about 90% vs,.. and open hole or window. For you R-value fanatics, by insulating the glass, we improve the R1 of single glass to a whopping R2 for insulated glass. When we add Low-E coatings, we can get about R3, and when we then add argon gas into the airspace between panes, about R4 is possible.

How long have windows been using IG / Insulated Glass / Annealed Insulated Glass?

Insulated glass, sometimes called IG, Anealed Insulated or by old LOF ( Libby Owens Ford ) trade name - Originally called "Thermopane" or Thermo Pane" glass; This glass has been commercially available since the 1950's. For fundamental concept hasn’t really changed much. Insulated glass consists of two or more pieces of glass which are bonded to, yet separated from, one another by a spacer bar. The space between the glass panes is an insulator by virtue of "dead air space”. This fabricated glass sandwich is glued together with sealants designed to keep the glass together and moisture out. The spacer contains a dessicant that removes moisture which might be residual from actual manufacture. Insulated glass seal failure occurs when moisture penetrates the edge seals and wets, or condensates within the air space.

A serious seal / glass failure will involve the permanent presence of moisture in the airspace.  The worst IG seal failures usually involve degradation of the spacer. Sometimes the spacer corrodes or even rusts. Sometimes the dessicant becomes so saturated that it turns to mush and becomes visible on the spacer. We often see failures in which, upon deglazing, one lite of glass completely separates from the spacer bar.

How do I test my Insulated BiltBest windows for fogging to see if they have seal failure?

Despite a respectable track record for insulated glass naturally there are failures. A moderate insulated glass seal failure will look like a cloud of moisture that has condensed on one of the inner surfaces of the glass in the airspace. It might come and go depending on the outside temperature, actual humidity, and even barometric pressure when added to the mix. This failure is also called “fogging glass”, “foggy window” or “window condensation between panes.”

ROLL-FORMED Double Hung window cladding and complete sash replacement and restoration parts kits are available.

Replace your "hail-damaged" or old, faded Bilt-Best Pro-Clad / e-Clad Double-Hung Sash Frame Cladding with new parts or install cladding on your old wood exterior units for that "like new" look. Even if you have the wood exterior units you can add the "clad" and never paint again. You can upgrade your OEM windows and have an aluminum clad exterior for a low maintenance window exterior sash. Extremely durable and significantly stronger and a superior resistance to fading and chalking .. and best of all - NO PAINTING! Standard Color Options include Bronze, sandstone and White. Replacement Cladding can be purchased for one unit .. or all your windows.

Easy to install and includes all four (4) pieces for either a TOP SASH .. or BOTTOM SASH or both.

If you have old Biltbest Wood Casement Style or Awning Style Windows ( interior / exterior ) .. we can upgrade those wood exterior sashes with brand new OEM Roll Formed Aluminum Clad. Exterior cladding on wood-frame BiltBest windows allows for the thermal insulation of the wood frame along with the weather resistance of the exterior cladding. BiltBest exterior window cladding is applied to the existing wood-frame Bilt-Best windows to increase the effectiveness of the old wood-frame window, restore old hail-damaged window exteriors, and reduce the need for maintenance - thing like painting and prep work every coup[le of years. Upgrading those old BiltBest Wood Windows will definitely improve the appearance of your old windows. Exterior aluminum roll-formed cladding is more than a protective exterior cover which is applied to a wood frame window sash - the window's external maintenance needs are greatly reduced, weather resistance is greatly increased and an attractive appearance is the end result. Wood is a natural insulator. Wood windows inhibit the transmission of cold or heat from the outside of the home. The exterior of a wood frame window requires maintenance, including annual varnishing or painting, to prevent warping or rotting. The aluminum cladding protects the frame's exterior and creates a weather-resistant replacement window frame that continues to offer all of the thermal benefits of a wood frame material - allowing for the traditional look of the stained wood inside the house while avoiding the necessary outdoor maintenance.

I need to know if the crank handle on my old malta casement crankout window is repairable or replaceable? If so, I may need to send you a picture since I don’t know the model or the age.

All window hardware is replaceable if it is still available. Casement operators are not repairable. The most common failure is broken gear or teeth or a stripped handle post. When the retainer pulls out of the spindle socket it can not be repaired. The entire assembly has to be replaced. The handle is usually a separate part and can be removed by loosening the set screw on the underside.

I have Biltbest casement windows and need the insect screens replaced. I would like to order new screens if you can still make them or supply them?

Screens are custom made from our stock materials. A sample is the most preferred way but photos are usually acceptable. Send to: Info@WeFixItUSA.com

“It’s Not Just A Name” .. BiltBest Really Does Aim to Build Best Windows and patio Doors .. A rose by any other name is still a rose.” The same can be said of a slogan. Whether it’s called a cliché, catchy phrase or a catchword, it is still just that, unless it takes on its own meaning. And in the case of a window and door manufacturer approaching a half-century of service, that is what is happening. For Ste Genevieve, Missouri-based BiltBest Windows .. changes in management, direction, philosophy, culture, policy, marketing and manufacturing .. all put this company on a new path and added another dimension to, “It’s Not Just A Name.” .. But What Went Wrong?

History
Located in Ste Genevieve, 60 miles south of St. Louis, BiltBest Windows had been active since the early 1950s. Founded by Morris and Paul Eisenberg in 1946 in Nassau County, N.Y., the company was a housing component manufacturer, producing cabinets, doors and millwork trim. A government contract to manufacture wooden ammunition boxes brought the company to Clarence, Mo., in 1950 so it could be closer to the three national U.S. Army arsenals. Three years later, when the government switched from wood to metal ammunition boxes, the company lost the contract and relocated to Ste Genevieve to focus on housing components. With a new manufacturing plant that had more than 300,000 square feet and room for expansion, the company started to design and supply window parts across the country.

In 1955, BiltBest introduced its first check rail, double-hung sash unit. Five years later, wood casement and awning windows were added, followed by sliding patio doors, bow and bay units and horizontal sliding units. Within two years, sales from the window and patio doors business exceeded the core component business and it was phased out. By the mid 1960s, the company had engineered a number of “firsts” in the window and patio door industry.

BiltBest became the first manufacturer to develop and patent a process to clad aluminum to the exterior of a wood window and the first to produce a triple-pane insulating glass units o definitely on the cutting edge.

The company continued to expand its product line as sales steadily increased. In 1981, BiltBest introduced a redeveloped aluminum-clad unit, offering the option of 185 special colors. Three years later, it became the first authorized window company to manufacture the low-E coated PPG Sungate 100 insulating glass system. At the same time, the company recognized the need to expand and a major addition was made to the manufacturing plant, with new corporate offices. In the 1990s, BiltBest also manufactured a complete line of vinyl new construction windows and its Sentinel polycellular full jamb window, the first to be introduced to the window industry.

The NEW "BiltBest Window Era" .. The year 2002 marked the beginning of new era for the company, according to vice president of sales and marketing, Howard Hardcastle. The rebirth of a 50-year old company .. with a very different dynamic and a very defined niche: to provide high-quality wood windows to a high-end residential markets - the company has no intention of selling to national chains or the big box stores which is what distinguished it from their competitors.

BiltBest had developed a number of liberal company programs, including one called “The Great Game of Business.” This was designed to bring people into the world of business so they have an understanding of labor cost, overhead and where they fit it. The key to the quality program addresses root-cause analysis. In other words, it is corrective action that includes suggestions on how to prevent another occurrence .. measuring the things that determine level of efficiency .. performing time studies and evaluating changes .. My Guess is they should have taken some advice from The Old Time TEXAS FOOTBALL COACH .. Darrell Royal .. who used to say: “Dance with the one who brung you”

For all the combining of production lines .. the smoother flow and more flexibility .. the so=called progress of replacing excessive handling of the products with conveyors and assembly systems .. automatic tilt-tables .. automation of the sash assembly line and automated hardware installations ... better door routing systems .. all replaced manual steps.

All the talk .. all the hype .. and ALL THE SLOGANS IN THE WORLD .. don't matter ..

BiltBest Windows and patio Doors Closed It's Doors in 2010 .. went belly-up and out of business .. leaving homeowners all over the USA with no place to turn for parts, repairs, warranty work .. help of any kind!

I think our slogan says it best .. "We're All Your Bilt-Best Window and Door Parts Needs"!
