EAS HR1000 vs PGT

Hi Dane. How do eas series hr1000 windows compare to pgt?

[Site Editor's Answer]

Connie, I don't hear a ton about Eastern Architectural Systems and honestly don't know a lot about the quality of their products. I do think the quality of PGT is quite high and I would certainly use many of their windows in my own home if I had the choice. I tend to think its better to go with a known brand, such as PGT, over one that has very little presence in the industry. But that's just my opinion.

Eastern Architectural Windows vs Simonton StormBreaker Plus

Can you compare the Simonton StormBreaker Plus vs Eastern Architectural Bertha products for me? I have 11 windows and 3 SGD....all vinyl impact resistant as I live in Cape Coral, FL. Simonton quote was $20k and Eastern was $16k...installed. This is for my young son's starter home and I doubt they'll be there more than 5-7 years. Any input will be greatly appreciated.

Mel, I don't hear much about Eastern Architectural Products and I tried to download their product brochure but they make you fill out some form. (I wasn't impressed with this tactic given that they should want consumers to know as much about their windows and doors as possible.) I know they focus on Florida and I believe they are owned by Eastern Metal. I believe they make a solid vinyl window, but I can't voch for them.

The Stormbreaker Plus is a good impact window that is often sold at a competitive price point. I often recommend this, as well as PGT and Custom Window Systems impact windows for your area. You may want to get a bid from these companies and see how they compare.

Normally, I would say go with the Simonton StormBreaker Plus, tired and true, but the fact that this is a starter home gives me pause. I would say this, compare the U-value, Design Pressure and Air Infiltration numbers between the two windows and see how close they are. If they are close to one another, I think you probably go with the less expensive option.

I always feel sort of guilty with this recommendation because someone down-the-line might bear the cost (the next homeowner), but my advise is for you and not them.

Eastern Architectural Systems vs PGT Windows

I am in the market to upgrade my original Florida crank out windows(single pane glass) and have narrowed my decision to two window manufacturers. They are Eastern Architectural Systems single hung series 1431/1441/2451/2461 and PGT energy vue 5400 series. I am on a tight budget but need the upgrade for aesthetics and efficiency. Can you tell me about each window? I live in Jacksonville Florida proudly serving in the U.S. Navy. I appreciate your help!

[Site Editor's Response]

Gus, I have never heard of Eastern Architectural Systems, although it looks like they are part of Earthwise Windows And Doors, which is a loose knit group of smaller window manufacturers. Most of these smaller manufacturers buy all of their window parts and asemble them at the local factory and sell them within their regional market. The original impetus for the group was that smaller regional manufacturers lacked the resources and infrastructure (marketing materials, sales, support, engineers, designers, etc) of the larger national window manufacturers. They therefore banded together under the Earthwise group to take advantage of its branding, product awareness and national presence.

I like the PGT Energy Vue 5400 window, this is what I would go with. Make sure whoever installs it, has lots of experience with this particular window.

If you want two additional suggestions (the more bids you have, the easier it is to negotitate down the price). CWS and Simonton are both available in your area and are both very solid options as well - you can call up CWS Windows and ask for the local company that services your area.

Thank you for serving our country, please let me know if you have ANY additional questions and I'm more than happy to give you my advise!
