Norandex Extreme Window Reviews

The Norandex Extreme is a vinyl replacement window that comes standard with a constant force balancing system, sloped sill, low-e and argon fill glass, warm edge spacer and recessed tilt latches. The window comes in either the X model or the XX model that includes foam fills in the mainframe and a whole host of exterior and interior hardware and color options. Consumers can expect a .04 air infiltration, which is quite impressive. The Extreme Windows series includes the following line up.

Norandex eXtream 3000 vs. Atrium 8300

Dane, ABC Supply sells the eXtream 3000 replacement window. I have been quoted $185.00 for the same size window as the Atrium 8300 series. I thought the 3000 was not built as well as the 8300. An atrium representative says they are the exact same window.

I may can get better warranty service if needed from my local building suppy store but not sure if it is worth the difference.

Thanks again for your time and sharing your knowledge.

[Site Editor's Answer]

H.P., he's right, they are basically the same window. Norandex sells windows made by Atrium. Are they the exact same window, probably not and I don't honestly know the exact differences. For the most part though, same window :) Atrium makes windows for a number of companies in the industry. I'd go with the best warranty and price since it's roughly the same window.

Norandex X3000 vs. Alside Mezzo

Hi. I liked your website, so i thought i would write. We are looking to replace 12 windows in our sunroom in Dunwoody, GA (Atlanta metro area). The sunroom is not heated/cooled, and we are not in the market for the highest end products.

The company we were referred to initially recommended Alside Mezzo at $500/window installed.

When we inquired about other options the company suggested Norandex X3000 at $425/window installed.

Are either of these good options?

What about the prices?

Any suggestions?

Denise - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Denise, in my book, neither of these options is very good. The Alside Mezzo uses a fairly weak frame and bad design with loose tolerances. The Norandex X3000 is much the same, it's an Atrium window that is relabeled, and not quite up to what I would ever consider putting in my own home.

Sunrise, Okna, Soft-lite, Polaris, Zen, Vytex, and Ideal all make much better windows with better tolerances, as well as sturdier frames and sills. Most make an entry level window that I would avoid, but their mid range offerings are all very solid and should serve you well.

I would say get 2 or 3 bids from local companies that carry these windows and send me the bids -- I'll give you my two cents on what sounds like the best option.

Norandex Extreme Information

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

Harold - Homeowner - from 2018

[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

- Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

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?

Del - Homeowner - from 2014

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 Window Reviews

The View Point windows are available as either a replacement or new construction. The line is available in a number of different series such as the 1000, 3000, 6000 and 8000. The higher the number, the better the quality and more expensive the price tag. In general, Norandex products are going to be priced out very similar to Atrium window costs, mainly because Atrium actually makes the windows. They also offer the Silent Guard on the Viewpoint 8000, which provides consumers with a 34 STC or sound control rating.

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 Viewpoint 8000 Series 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.

Fran - Homeowner - from 2009

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.

Norandex Perfexion Impact Reviews

Simonton purchased the Florida Norandex plant and line of windows, i.e. The Norandex Perfexion line is a Simonton window. There is the Perfection Silver, Gold and Platinum series and these are on par with Simonton Asure, Reflections 5300 and Reflections 5500 series.

Norandex Perfexion Series

Hi Dane, Is the Norandex Perfexion line the private label equivalent of Simonton Asure line? I’ve been assured of this by the contractor I’m strongly considering for a replacement job and can’t seem to verify in any of the web searches I’m doing. Thank you.

Manuel - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Manuel, the Norandex Perfexion line is owned by Simonton. There is the Perfection Silver, Gold and Platinum series and they are pretty close to the Simonton Asure, Reflections 5300 and Reflections 5500 series. They aren't the same windows, Simonton bought the Norandex plant, but I'd say the quality is on par. I like the Gold and Platinum models.

Norandex Perfexion Impact Series

Good morning , I am trying to make sense if window quality and pricing, it is overwhelming at best.

I have 8 windows at my home here in Florida. I have an estimate for $8,401 for the above named windows. Can you give me your opinion on this window and price? It states they are made by Simonton. I am meeting with the contractor today .

Pat - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Yes, Simonton purchased the Florida Norandex plant and line of windows a while back so that would make sense.

Norandex has just an okay reputation in the industry. I would be wary about spending $1000 a window on a company with a reputation that is just kinda meh.

PGT and Custom Window Systems both make good impact windows in Florida and I would certainly see if your contractor could check out their pricing on the he PGT WinGuard 5500 impact series and CWS 8100 Windpact Plus series.

Simonton makes a StormBreaker Plus window that you might want to get pricing on.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2018

[Pat's Reply]

Good morning Dane, I actually ended going with with Simonton Storm Breaker Plus windows. 8400.00.

Thanks for your reply.
