Eagle Windows Reviews
We still have the original 1977 windows in our home. I was looking at Marvins or Eagle. We need replacements badly and we also want to turn one door into a window and turn a different window into french doors. I've heard that fiberglass or composite is better than vinyl, is that true?
Marvin and Eagle are both good lines, they both are good quality and have pretty strong customer support. They are pretty comparable, so I'd look at what features they have. See what is standard and what you have to pay extra for. Whichever way you go should be just fine.
Eagle vs Andersen
I have a ranch in Pennsylvania that needs new windows. I want a black exterior, which kind of limits our options. I'm looking mainly at Andersens A Series and Eagles. We have 9 windows, 1 is a casement and the rest double hungs. We want interior grills, low-e glass, and our quotes are for the product without installation. I have a buddy who is going to put them in. The Eagles are about $1k less. We really wanted Marvins, but to get the black we'd have to go with Ultimates and they are out of our budget. I don't know which to get, Andersen or Eagle?
I'm not a big Eagle fan, I used to sell a lot of them and always hated it. The Andersen 400 series is awesome, one of their best products ever, but their newer stuff isn't anything special. I honestly would keep looking if those were my only two choices.
Eagle vs Kolbe
I can't believe people are comparing Hurd to Marvin, Eagle, and Kolbe. The Hurds don't even compare. Other brands have much better designs and materials that will last a lot longer and give you fewer problems. Hurd is a lower quality window - nothing wrong if that's what you want, but lower quality.
The Eagles are great when you have a strong color preference. They have an extruded aluminum exterior, 50 basic colors plus other in the anodized and custom lines. They also have a lot of different finishes and different wood options, custom grids, and tons of other options. When you have specific requests like that Eagle is the way to go.
Eagle vs. Sierra Pacific & Pella
We have bids from several manufacturers that includes Pella windows, Eagle and Sierra Pacific, although the Pella Architect is just too expensive so that's basically off the list. Eagle gets pretty good reviews and Sierra Pacific gets so-so reviews. The Eagle bid is a good 9K more, which is pushing out budget right now.
I don't know enough about Sierra Pacific to give an opinion, but I like Eagle windows. They are owned by Andersen but they more or less run as an independent company. The website lists their windows as the E series from Andersen and they are an aluminum clad wood window that are really pretty nice looking. I would spring for the 9K if you can do it and go with a brand that you feel comfortable with over one that leaves a question mark in your mind. Most of my customers are glad they went with a top rated window brand once the project is over, even if it stretches their budget thin in the short run.
Eagle is a good quality, upper range window. They were bought by Andersen not long ago and they are still trying to figure out their new distribution plans, but they are well made and Andersen is reliable, they will keep the quality high.
Eagle vs Pella & Marvins
I have a bunch of casement windows to replace, and I'm considering Marvin Ultimates, Pella Architects, and Eagle Axioms. They are all extruded aluminum clad. I've heard good things about Eagle, and I'm thinking about going with a triple pane instead of double.
Out of those three, the Marvin Ultimate is the best. The Eagle is good, too, just not quite as nice. I would stay away from the Pella, the sash is lower quality.
How They Compare To Other Brands
Lincoln has a clad double hung with a 0.01 AI, but it isn't as good as the R-4. The Eagle is good, but I don't really like their double hung sill. The Peachtree 700 series isn't as good as the Eagle. I would look at a Marvin, they are in a whole separate class. You'll pay more, but they are worth a premium price.
