Norandex Extreme Review

Does someone know any info on the Norandex Extreme window? For instance, who makes them? Thanks in advance.

[Site Editor's Answer]

I know a little on the Norandex Extreme vinyl window. It's a private label that's made by Atrium. Atrium makes quite a few windows that are relabeled by other "window makers." I tend to think that these windows are okay, but certainly not great. The company advertises it as a sloped sill design, which is a great feature, but the Norandex Extreme is simply a snap in sill.

Essentially this is just a pocket sill window. It does have some decent components and features, but it is essentially a souped up version of what you will find at the big box stores. The warranty is also not that impressive, which leads me to believe that they don't really think the vinyl window is going to hold up super well over time. Probably decent for budget projects, but I would look elsewhere if long term value and performance is at the top of your list.

Norandex Extreme 8000 vs. Simonton Prism Platinum

Can you give me your opinion of the Simonton Prism Platinum versus the Norandex Extreme 8000?

I have a choice between the two. Prices are comparable. Seen pro's and con's for both.

Any insight you can lend would be great!

Thank you

Jarett, the Simonton Prism Platinum is a good vinyl window, better in my opinion than the Norandex. I'm not even sure who actually makes the Norandex, I believe it's an Atrium -- I would stay clear of the Norandex brand if it were me.

Norandex Extreme Windows

Does anyone know the Norandex Extreme window? It looks like Norandex does not actually make the window, so who does?

Contractor Response

The Extreme is an Atrium relabeled window. They call it a sloped sill, but don't fool yourself, it has this little snap in piece that is cheaply made. I think the warranty from Norandex isn't good, it's full of holes and everything is pro-rated to limited their exposure after a few years. It has some decent features that look good on paper, but I don't find the window to do well made. I give it a C grade. Explore additional Atrium window prices here.

Norandex Viewpoint 3000 Review

Norandex sells the Viewpoint 3000, which is actually an Atrium window. It's a mid-grade window, so if the price is good it isn't bad, but if you can afford something nicer then you can probably do better. There aren't any major flaws, but there's nothing to really stand out either.

Norandex Windows vs Simonton

We are building a new home soon and had the windows narrowed down to either the Simonton 5500 series or the Marvin Integrity until a dealer let us see the Viewpoint 8000 series. It was very nice looking and matches out style down to the tee - plus is quite a bit less that the Integrity for sure and the 5500 by a bit. Wanted to get some opinions on this window from the pros.

Contractor Response

The Viewpoint 8000 is the high end vinyl replacement window from Norandex, but actually manufactured by Atrium. I would recommend the 5500 series over the 8000 not so much for the window itself, but because I like Simonton more than Atrium. Marvin I would then recommend over Simonton - I really like the Integrity and think it's a very solid window, depending on what you are paying for it.

Norandex vs Crestline Windows

Our old house had Crestline windows. I was happy with them. The new house has Norandex vinyl windows and I've had nothing but trouble. When I try to get Norandex to fix one of the numerous problem, they give me the run around and I've never had any satisfaction with that company regarding the windows.
