CWS Hurricane Windows

We live in the southwest section of Florida and recently received a bid for hurricane windows on our home - 10 windows in all. The company that bid it out had two options, either the WinGuard from PGT or the Wind Pact Plus from Custom Window Systems. The CWS window costs, which were for single hungs, were $7,500 total, the PGT windows price was $800 more. I had definitely heard good things about PGT, but I've never heard of CWS and was curious what their deal is and whether the prices seem in line. Btw, I had a quote from Gorell 5400 hurricane windows that was more than double this!

The CWS and PGT bids you got don't seem out of line in terms of price, the Gorell price bid is ridiculous - do not go with that ridiculous bid regardless of what they say. In terms of CWS windows, they are very high quality. I've personally installed hundreds of them (thousands? not sure...). I've had very few issues with them and when they did the company worked with me to make sure that everything was worked out to the customers satisfaction. I have no qualms recommending them.

Options In Florida

Vinyl windows are getting more popular in Florida, but they aren't available in a lot of colors. They are pretty much white, beige, and tan. They tend to be either laminated or painted, and both have some drawbacks. There are only two manufacturers that have decent designs and color choices, Custom Window Systems and PGT windows. PGT makes a PremierVue series that isn't bad, and if that is too high as far as cost, look at their 500 series.

CWS Windows vs PGT Windows

We're looking at Custom Window Systems for our hurricane windows, but there isn't much out there on the company. I'm also wondering what other companies I should look at in Florida?

CWS does make good hurricane windows and they are not too crazy in terms of cost (or they shouldn't be). I recently put a ton of single hungs into a home in Florida and the homeowner was very pleased. They have a very cool latch and auto lock feature that is quite nice. The other company you should look at is PGT, which is my go to window. It's more expensive and some homeowners just can't afford to go that route (in which case I suggest the Custom Window Systems). One downside to the CWS is no double hung because it's more difficult to make them hurricane code complaint.

I'm very bummed that we can no longer get Gorell (out of business), the 5400 that they sold was a very hefty window and very well made. For very cost-conscious customers I would suggest the Silverline 9500 with several upgrades to make it code compliant. A very uninspiring window, but it does get the job done.
