• A.

True

False

A. True
Explanation
The statement is true because all new construction windows are typically equipped with a nail fin as a standard feature.

### Billy Bob is a big-time contractor who installs Paradigm Windows frequently. Billy Bob says he needs an 8300 Series New Construction window, and gives you a rough opening dimension of 48" x 50" (4' x 4'2"). When we manufacture the unit, what will it's Tip To Tip measurement be? Choose one of the following:

• A.

47 1/2" x 49 1/2"

48 3/4" x 50 3/4"

• D.

47" x 49"

• E.

None of the above are correct

A. 47 1/2" x 49 1/2"
Explanation
The rough opening dimension given by Billy Bob is 48" x 50" (4' x 4'2"). However, when manufacturing the unit, it is important to consider the necessary space for installation. The window frame will typically be slightly smaller than the rough opening to allow for proper fitting and adjustment. Therefore, the correct answer is 47 1/2" x 49 1/2", which accounts for the necessary space for installation.

### Paul is a contractor who is a stickler for perfection, a true worrywart but is not too familiar with Paradigm Windows. He has called your department and has said to you, "I just looked at the quote that I got from my distributor and it says the Tip To Tip dimension for my casement window is going to be 35 1/2" x 59 1/2" on this brand new house I'm building. I gave my distributor a rough opening of 36" x 60", and I don't see it on the quote! Is this correct or do I have to call them and sort this out?" It's your turn. Answer Paul's question by selecting one of the following responses:

• A.

"Paul, I'm so glad you called. It sounds as though these will be new construction windows, but we actually deduct 1/4" from the rough opening to achieve Tip To Tip measurements on all of our windows. Please tell me your quote number and I'll change it and email it back to you right away with special pricing."

• B.

"Thanks for your phone call, Paul. I appreciate you checking in on this so that we don't have any hiccups when you place the order. Since it sounds like these are replacement windows, these dimensions are actually entirely incorrect. If you contact your distributor, you can sort it out."

• C.

"Thanks for your phone call, Paul. I appreciate you checking in on this so that we don't have any hiccups when you place the order. Since it sounds like these are new construction windows, these dimensions are correct. We deduct 1/2" from your rough opening to achieve make size on all new construction windows."

• D.

"Thanks for your phone call, Paul! I appreciate you checking in on this so that we don't have any hiccups when you place the order. I have no idea whether or not this is correct so I'm going to just transfer you to my manager. Have an excellent day!"

C. "Thanks for your pHone call, Paul. I appreciate you checking in on this so that we don't have any hiccups when you place the order. Since it sounds like these are new construction windows, these dimensions are correct. We deduct 1/2" from your rough opening to achieve make size on all new construction windows."
Explanation
The correct answer explains that since Paul is building a new house, the dimensions provided by the distributor are correct. It states that in new construction windows, 1/2" is deducted from the rough opening to achieve the make size. Therefore, Paul does not need to call the distributor to sort out the dimensions.
