Advanced Windows 6300 Series

I found your your website and really appreciate all of the information you provide to everyday window shoppers.

I need to replace 4 windows for our Chicago home, which includes 2 double-hungs, 1 half arch that goes above one of the double hangs and a kitchen garden window. I have two quotes that I'd love to get your help with. Each bid comes from a company with strong reviews and good track records.

Advanced Windows (6300 Series): $7390

Kensington (Kingston Series): $6150

Thanks so much for taking my question, I really appreciate it!

Jamie, thanks for the question. I definitely hear about Advanced Windows from Chicago, but I don't hear enough about them to have formed a strong opinion about them. I wish I were more of a help on that front.

Kensington HPP has a very good reputation in the industry, but I'm wary about recommending their lower end product. If it were me, I would get a bid from the Kensington rep on their mid range window, the Williamsport or Huntington and see if the price on this rivals the Advanced Windows. Assuming that both installation companies have good reputations, I'd bet that the prices would be competitive this scenario.

[Jamie's Response]

Hi Dane, thank you very much for your message and insights. I did get another few bids and a second contractor strongly recommended the Advanced 6300 Series window. I saw from other ratings that the Kingston was the lower end window from Kensington and so I'd prefer to not get the bottom grade.

On a related note, one of the windows in our kitchen that we're replacing is a garden window. The current window is quite old (probably at least 20 years), so a new garden window would surely have better sealing and technology.

However, would you recommend against a garden window and go with a casement window, since the life expectancy of a garden window is not likely as long as a casement or other type due to the stresses and weather factors it would endure? The two garden window brands we are considering are the Simonton premium vented window and a Ventana window.

Thanks, once again.

Jamie, good to hear that Advanced Windows was recommended by another local contractor. I would say this: if you went back to the Kensington rep and ask what he would charge for the Huntington or Quantum II, I'd be interested to see how that price stacked up to the Advanced quote. Take a look at the Kensington Huntington performance data, it's pretty darn hard to beat their energy efficiency.

Either way, it sounds like you have a quality product in either the Advanced Windows or the mid range or higher end Kensington.

As far as the garden window goes, I think it has to come down to personal preference. I personally don't like garden windows in the kitchen, so I absolutely would put in a casement, which is one of the most energy efficient and versatile windows on the market. It saves you money and you are correct that over time a garden window can put stress on the frame and sill. But some people love the look and aesthetic function of the garden window, which I totally get as well.

Let me know what you decide and how it works out!

Advanced Windows Corp vs Vinylmax Edison

We have three bids on seven double hung windows. We live in a suburb of Chicago and would love to hear your opinions on these three options.

Soft-Lite Imperial LS: $3565

Vinylmax Edison $3080

Advanced Windows Corp 6300: $2800

[Site Editor's Answer]

Kathy, I haven't heard enough about Advanced Windows Corp. to really give you an opinion on them.

Vinylmax Edison is a good overall window and one that you definitely may want to consider.

However, for an extra $500 you can get one of the best windows on the market in the SoftLite Imperial LS. This would be my pick.

Advance Window Co vs Vista Windows

I want to replace my windows, 14 double hungs and 1 picture window. I have quotes from Window Works for $9,000, Andersen Renewal for $22,000 and from Vista windows for $8,000. Also a quote from Advance Window Co., but no bid yet.

Victoria - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Victoria, I'll address the three bids you have, I don't know enough about Advance Window Co. to really say much. The Renewal bid is way too much, I'd toss it. I think of the bids you have, I'd run with the Vista bid, their Panorama vinyl window is solid.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016

[Victoria's Reply]

Just got the bid from Advanced Windows on their 5200 series. The price was $2000 less than the Vista and that (price) worries me a bit. Maybe that was insider price as I am friends with owner of the trucking company where I work and he is related to the contractor. I plan to go to their showroom.

U Factor 0. 27
SHGC 0.28

Advance Tilt Turn Windows

I work in and around Chicago so I have some working knowledge of Advanced Windows. They make a nice Tilt Turn, but I'm not overly impressed with their double hungs. If you get a good deal on their Tilt Turn, go for it. If you are looking for another style, I'd keep looking.

Not Impressed With Advanced Windows

Advanced Windows is a Chicago based out and unfortunately I was not thrilled with the windows they showed me or the price quote. Personally I would consider one of the better known companies like Sunrise or Okna.

Advanced vs Champion Windows

Considering windows from Advanced, Champion, or Feldco. I don't know enough though to make a very good decision. Windows are as difficult to buy as cars, but there aren't reviews out there like they have with cars. Don't know what to do.
