9 over 6 energy efficient windows
I can’t seem to find 9 over 6 windows for an addition to an antique half cape house I an restoring / renovating. I’ve searched Anderson, Marvin, Pella…………….does anyone have a source for these windows that will meet current code. ???
Individual lites or just a grid? I'm assuming you can get a grid in whatever pattern, so you must be talking individual lites?
prefer individual lites as originals
I think you can get Marvin to make.
I've been under the impression Marvin & KolbeKolbe will do whatever you want & charge whatever they want
chance you could post picture of what you are talking about
is that a double hung
top sash 3 across / 3 down
bottom sash 3 across / 2 down?
About 10-12 years ago I was able to buy Marvin 9 over 6's, true divided lites, for a historic preservation job.
Don't know if there still available but worth a check and see.
Andersen Woodwright DHs offers 6 and 9 lite grille patterns. I'll bet you could specify a 9 lite pattern for the upper sash and a 6 lite pattern for the lower sash. You won't find this on the shelf anywhere, but a good Andersen dealer should be able to make it happen.
Marvin will definitely make these windows. Either in ADL (actual divided lite) or SDL (simulated divided lite) or ADL with single pane glass and an energy panel.
For the best look, I would suggest the SDL option. You have more mutin widths to choose from. ADL with that lite pattern will look chunky.
"It is what it is."
I've heard them refered as Cottage style windows, as Mike said a true divided lite w/insul glass often have wider muntins and look out of place on a historic reno.
That said, Kolbe&Kolbe was out at one of my jobs recently and had no problem quoteing on many size's ,styles, including some about the same as you previously posted about.
In my case "meet current code" is not an issue, it's a historic renovation, so the HO opted for me to make the old ones like new, or remanufacture replacements where needed.
Is restoring the existing out of the question? If so why? When the new windows have leaks and fog up, or collapsed glass, you'll kick yourself for trashing the existing. Tighten them up with new weatherstripping, refurbish the sash..and get on a good paint..yer good for a LONG time. Add storms if ya need more heat retention.

You gonna play that thing?
Based on your name, I assume you are on the Cape. Go local, try Smith Restoration Sash in Providence. Google for their website.
Try this company in Vermont:
'nother company in Vermont:http://woodstone.com/ Now you see this one-eyed midget
Shouting the word "NOW"
And you say, "For what reason?"
And he says, "How?"
And you say, "What does this mean?"
And he screams back, "You're a cow
Give me some milk
Or else go home"
Are you sure it is 9 over 6??? And not 6 over 9?? Marvin will do it either way. I just priced one in clad w/ SDL on my mqs ... your cost is $797.35: low/e; w/ screen. A 9/6 window would be 3/5 on top and 2/5 on bottom. Most "cottage" style windows are the exact opposite.
Look at hi pict. it is 9 over6!
I don't understand your message..As long as GOD makes "bad builders" and rich people... I will have a job
Look at the picture in the post. It shows 9over 6
