          SIMONTON windows offer a sleek, contemporary frame that provides optimum viewing space and maximum daylight. Top it off with energy efficiency and color, glass and grid options and you'll have the perfect accent to any home. A vinyl double hung window is a popular choice among homeowners and is one of the more common windows. You can lower the top or raise the bottom sash for airflow. Double hung are also very easy to clean because the sash tilts in allowing you to clean the outside glass, from the comfort of the inside of your home. The Fusion-welded construction provides durability and weather-resistance. And when combined with multiple points of weather-stripping inhibit wind and rain penetration, you get comfort and confidence in any weather conditions. During your consultation, an expert will visit your home to: perform a pre-installation inspection, measure window openings, discuss product and extended service options that best fit your needs and budget, review financing options, provide a total project cost estimate and identify installation date for your new windows.

          Writing review after using 4+ years from install. Had 21 double hung and 1 awning Simonton windows installed by Home Depot in 2014 in northeast. So far very happy! The installer was efficient. Great looking & easy to use, looks new after every cleaning. Except one stopper (gave up; out of 21X2=42) so far no issues. Looking at some of the reviews I think it depends on use. We try to use them with care as we own the house. Given the pain it is to work with 3rd party contractors, the prices I paid to Home Depot, 2 years 0% financing and Home Depot backed warranty, it was absolutely a great purchase!

          Constructed of solid hardwood and wood veneers, this mobile kitchen cart is designed for longevity. The beautiful raised panel doors and drawer fronts provide the ultimate in style to dress up your kitchen. 2-deep drawers are great for anything from utensils to storage containers. Behind the four doors, you will find adjustable shelves and an abundance of storage space for things that you prefer to be out of sight. The heavy duty casters provide the ultimate in mobility. When the cabinet is where you want it, simply engage the locking casters to prevent movement. Style, function and quality make this mobile kitchen cart a wise addition to your home.

          Looks very nice after assembling, but build quality is poor - weak wood veneers structure. I have lots of experience assembling this type of furniture, and very carefully finger-tightened the screws. After completing the assembly 90%, I figured even few solid wood pieces cracked as they were screwed together. Had to fix with super glue as I didn't have time and energy to unassailable, call customer service for replacement pieces or return etc. The drawers are not soft open/close, they slide and slam every time we use them. I am nervous they can break anytime.

          Use the Orbit Zinc Green Partial-Circle Sprinkler (2-Pack) as single sprinklers or as sprinklers connected in a series. The sprinkler heads are adjustable to cover diameters of up to 80 ft. in partial-circle or full-circle patterns. Designed to work with any standard size hose.

          Great sprinkler head for its price. Shoots far to cover large area! Perfect for watering large lawn quickly.
          Serves best once you learn how to adjust the area (30 to 360 degree) and distance coverage, which is easy. May not be good for watering small area as it sprays lot of water. Using 4 of them since last one month to water my half acre lawn (have to move the heads to cover the whole area).
          Doesn't work best when connecting multiple heads in series. I wish there was a way to control how much water going into the head. Little concerned how long the area coverage adjusters will hold as I have to change the adjustment every now and then and they are made if wire. But so far so good!

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          My first unit lasted around 5 years, and then stopped working. It turned on, looked like working, but won't spin or heat the food. I though 5 years was less but reasonable life, and purchased another JVM1540. It was installed by Home Depot on Dec 02, 2011 (including everything it was $240+). Exactly after 2 years new unit failed with same symptom - turns on, lights up, but won't spin or heat the food. Home Depot suggested contacting GE directly. GE said warranty on the product was 1 year. Since I did not purchase extended warranty I have pay for - service call ($100) plus parts and labor to repair. My concern, since it was a recurring issue (possibly a defect) and the “brand new” 2nd unit Read More

GE said warranty on the product was 1 year. Since I did not purchase extended warranty I have pay for - service call ($100) plus parts and labor to repair. My concern, since it was a recurring issue (possibly a defect) and the “brand new” 2nd unit failed just after 2 years, GE should fixed it for free. But the customer care assoc. offered max 25% discount on parts and labor (which the tech would determine upon his arrival). In addition $100 for service call needed to be paid - no matter I get the unit fixed or not. I decided not to get it repaired and buy a new unit, but different brand. This is because, when I called LG few months back about the failed bulb of the refrigerator, they immediately admitted this could be because of a defect in the main board and replaced all related components for free. That was after 2 years the warranty expired --- difference between GE and LG! Never going to buy GE products again! Read Less
