on the quote he has Duravent 6" Double walled stainless insulated liner and elsewhere he specifies a 0 clearance liner. I also remember him saying its a rigid liner.
Is that a good liner system?
Hogwildz installed that liner. it's fine for your application.

Unfortunately they weren't in good working order when we bought the place. Most were painted shut over the years.
I have been slowing taking them apart and getting them working again one by one. I still have 12 more to do. I got a quote on new windows that matched the current ones, just insulated glass. It was around $30,000 and so I instantly became a huge fan of getting storms instead. haha
Good! Removing old windows from a house is like tearing out its soul. I've never lived in a house as new as yours, are they wavy?

Watch the lead paint, especially if you have kids! Scraping chips is fine, but avoid making dust. No sanding indoors! Encapsulation is the name of the game, here.

Great liner system. I installed it in 2006, and still like new. Easy to clean, sturdy, and flows well. Good choice.
