anyone know how long it typically takes to receive the cheque from GreenOn after installation is done and application is submitted?
Application submitted on May 23. Received rebate approved confirmation on July 5 informing that cheque will be mailed in 2-4 weeks.
Isn't it great to live in the 21st century where deleting history has become more important than making it.

Seems slightly high for a track and 2 frames if they are just converting 6 panel hollow doors.
I'll need to confirm, but it may be the case that the pocket door itself slides into the wall (as opposed to adjacent).

Sliding adjacent is a barn door. Pocket doors are always in the wall.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can utilize a barn door for a washroom doorway. My question is, is there an elegant way to lock a sliding barn door?

Gotcha. Didn't know there was a distinction.

Anybody have an opinion on Gentek Regency windows?

Yes. We are a dealer of theirs and sell about 1 house per year by request.

One house per year.... Obviously not your first choice or you'd be out of business! SO, what do you not like about this window?

Warped exterior door... if its metal throw it out. If its wood, you can remove it and try and bend it back over a period of about 3 weeks. Cheap doors warp.
