Re: Installing window in shower, opinions?

Manufacturers are guarding their distribution systems and protect their dealers. It's true in all industries. The end result is that the consumer pays for this protection.

My experience with windows sold at HD and Lowes is not that bad. They carry brands like Pella and Jldlwen that seem to be fine in my area and my weather. I happened to know the owners of Pella and I wouldn't hesitate using them in a remodel.

So if you are on a budget and want to replace just 1 window, have no fear and go with a big box store window.

Back to the size issue: you will have to remove the trim sooner or later, so go ahead, gently remove it now so you can measure. If the window you find is slightly smaller than the rough opening, don't worry, you can fill in the space during installation.
