    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!"
