Man, PA has all the good stuff! We have cheap labor up here too, but there's a language barrier ... and the quality of workmanship isn't so good.
Yeah, on the windows .... my parents spend an OBSCENE pile of $$$ to have their whole house retrofitted with the new plastic wonderwindows. They SUCK. Used to love sitting by the window as a kid with the sun shining through keeping you warm. Now, it's the same as the light from a lamp. ZERO heat. Feels dead in there. Plus, the old windows were about the same insulation wise. What a scam ...
My house has the plastic wonders too. All of them leak - every single one makes it look perpetually foggy here, as the 2 sheets of glass are stained on the inside where you can't clean. All the gas is long gone.
What piles of *censored*!
Windows, cars, appliances ...... can we get ANYTHING good anymore?????
Here's a pic of the bathroom window during that -2° morning. Yeah, that's ice .... on the INSIDE.
