HiMark Window Bid vs. Soft-Lite Imperial

Dane, I'm currently looking to replace 25 double hung windows and one patio door in our home. I've solicited quotes from companies selling both Soft-lite Imperial and HiMark by Okna. I received a quote for $21000 for the OKNA 500 Series double hung (full installation and lifetime warranty on the installation / labor) and $3100 for the patio door.

The Soft Lite Imperial quote was 18900 for the windows and 2500 for the the triple pain patio door (full installation and 1 year warranty on the installation / labor). Both quotes include standard grid system. Based on the research I've done on your site, these quotes feel high. I live in Wisconsin...any thoughts that you can share?

Please let me know if you can provide any assistance. Thanks in advance!

Kyle, the Okna quote feels high for sure. The Soft-Lite Imperial quote sounds better, but I agree they don't sound necessarily inexpensive by any means. HiMark is often priced out pretty darn high because the dealer sells and installs only Okna windows. You usually pay for the privilege, which has its benefits but low cost isn't one of them.

I think you need a couple more quotes to see what other options are out there. At the very least, I'd use one or two more quotes to go back to the Soft-Lite dealer and see if you can't see if get him to drop his price. Usually this time a year is slow in terms in window installation so you can often get a better price than say in the summer when their schedules are full.

If you have some wiggle room on your timeine I think you should get a couple of quotes and just see how they compare. The quotes you have are from some of the best in the business. Now I'd like to see you find their best price. Good on you for the work you've done so far.

HiMark vs. Okna and Soft-Lite

Hi I was wondering if you are familiar with this company and what Windows they carry? I am getting quotes on Okna (through Windows on Washington), Pella, as well as from Soft-Lite and HiMark dealers (TBD).

Also have Lowes (Reliabilt) and Window World quotes. Thoughts? We are looking at Mid to Top grade windows so not sure WW and Lowes are a good fit.

Eric, I know that Window Universe has sold the Revere Berkshire Elite series in the past. This is a mid range vinyl window with decent numbers. They should be able to tell you which window they are selling you...if I went to a Best Buy and they wouldn't tell me what washer they were trying to sell me I'd walk out and never go back.

That being said, you have some excellent options in the Okna, Soft-Lite and HiMark (which sells Okna windows, ironically). These are the bids I would concentrate on and would try to find an option within their selections that works for your budget.

Pella makes a sub par vinyl window in my opinion.

You are correct that Reliabilt, and WW are not a good fit for a mid range or premium range project.

Feel free to send me the bids when you receive them and I'm happy to give you my take on your quotes!

Himark Set Up

HiMark is one of the top brands out there, along with Okna, Sunrise, Polaris, and Soft Lite.

Essentially the HiMark is an exclusive deal for Okna dealers where the installation must be done by the HiMark dealer. It makes for a pricier window, but I think in the long run it's worth it.

Himark Windows Reviews

I live outside of Chicago and I need to replace my ugly windows and rotting patio doors. I looked into a ton of them, and ended up choosing Okna/Himarks. I ordered 12 of the Himark Enviro-Stars and 2 Elegante patio doors with low-e argon gas, dual glaze, Heatseal spacers and a bunch of other features. I like them a lot, they are supposed to be a good quality and the price was good.

Himark vs Simonton 5500

I recently comapred the Simonton 5500 to the HiMark 800 side by side. The Simonton 5500 is a solid vinyl window, but the HiMark is a clear step above. It's one of the nicest windows I've ever seen.

Himark / Okna Connection

The HiMark is exactly the same as the Okna EnviroStar 800 series. They are identical, just like the Simonton Prism Platinum and the Reflection 6500 are the same. They just put different name tags on the same ones.

Himark vs. Harvey

I need to replace 21 windows and so far have a bid on the Harvey Classic for $550, Simonton 5550 series for $500, and the HiMark DX800 for $630.

John - Homeowner - from 2010

[Contractor Response]

John, the HiMark DX800 series is the best of the three bids you have collected so far. The Harvey Classic is also good, as is the Simonton 5500. Three good bids, but the best value is the HiMark in my opinion.
