Question DetailsAsked on 8/17/2015

I need to replace windows in a lakefront high-rise condo. Any vendor suggestions?

Although I live on the 7th floor, because of the geography, it's quite windy here. I know that there are windows rated for up to the 12th floor but we might need windows rated for higher floors because of the exposures we have, etc. I'm looking for a reliable, trustworthy window vendor who's not going to break me.
The building was built in 1929 and the windows are original and are wood. I have 12 windows to replace--10 double hung and 2 casement type windows.
Any advice would be appreciated.

Window manu tend to be regional,, What area are living in?

Answered 4 years ago by jccasper


I would start off asking your condo board and or building manager, you may have to meet certain codes that came into effect since the building was built. existing is existing new replacements may have to be to todays code , so local code enforcements at your towns building department should be looked into. also a comercial contractor is needed. again if your going to do it , do it right it might be alot more involved then just picking out which window you like.

I live in Chicago. I do know that the windows need to be rated for high rises (H-1? R-1? I don't know) but some windows are only rated for 12 floors.
