NT Executive Windows Reviews

The NT Executive series is the drop down from the premium Presidential series. It's not quite as stout a window as the Presidential and comes standard with roll form aluminum screen frame and 3/4 inch insulated glass (compare this to the 7/8 inch insulated glass on the Presidential and an extruded screen frame.)

NT Executive vs. Berkshire Elite

Looking at 19 replacement windows in Dallas, Texas. No grids, Trying to make it look modern. Between NP Windows Executive $12,515 or NP Windows Traditions $13,728 from Brennan or Berkshire Elite Single Hung $9,187 from Metroplex Windows and Glass. Comments or suggestions welcome.

Thank you.

KJ - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

KJ, I'm not sure I would go with the Berkshire Elite Single Hung window, even though this is obviously the cheapest option you have so far. I wouldn't rate this window high enough to give it my endorsement.

The NT Executive is the better window over the so it's interesting that the Executive is the cheaper option. Are you sure you didn't mean the NT Presidential for $13.7K? The Presidential is probably the only NT vinyl window that I would go with.

If it were me, I would get a couple more bids to round out my offerings. I would get a bid from Milgard on their Texas vinyl window line and from Don Young on either their aluminum window or their higher end vinyl window.

NT Executive Series vs. Alside Mezzo

Hi Tim, we have quotes for replacing all 30 windows in our home for the following options (Milgard was too high at $27.5k, although we liked the windows they were too much higher). We live in Houston, TX:

Note - all windows are cardinal glass low e 366, single hung windows. U factor and SHGC are very close for all options.

1. NT Exec. series windows - $20,325

2. NT Presidential series windows - $21,080

3. Alside Mezzo windows - $17,100

All these windows look acceptable to me, wondering if you have any insight on quality / value for these options?

Note - Alside has a 1 year warranty on installation services and they use their own installation crews. All have limited lifetime warranty on windows, but the NT firm installing (Allstate siding and windows in Houston) offers a lifetime installation warranty.

Would appreciate any advice you have!

Dave - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Dave, I think the NT Presidential series is your best bet, but it's also your most expensive. NT windows have a solid reputation and the Presidential is a good vinyl window. I don't know much about Allstate siding and windows in Houston, but they do seem to have some pretty solid online reviews and they have been in business for quite some time.

I would try and find out how much they are willing to come off that $21K price, because the $17K bid on the Alside Mezzo is not bad. I'd tell them that the $17K bid is much more in line with your budget and that if they could get close to that price, you'd be ready to sign the work order that day. See what they say.

NT Presidential Windows Reviews

The NT Presidential series is the company's premium vinyl window. It is generally a slightly stronger or durable window than the lower end models and comes standard with 7/8 inch insulated glass and an extruded screen frame.

NT Presidential Windows From Statewide Energy Solutions

Thank you Dane,

Do you have any information on NT window -- www.ntwindow.com

or www.statewideenergysolutions.com They say they manufacture their own windows.

Thank you.

Hayley - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Hayley, I have never heard of Statewide Energy Solutions. I did a search for any reviews on them and I seemed to find some good ones and some not so good ones. If it were me, I would not go with a company that has so few reviews. If I knew friends or family that had used them and had good things to say, I would reconsider this position.

NT Windows is a pretty decent window manufacturer. Their top of the line Presidential vinyl window gets good marks and so I would recommend this product if you are going to go with NT.

Other Texas manufacturers that I like include Milgard (they make a line of vinyl windows that are geared to the hot climate of the state), Don Young (they make a great aluminum window and a decent/good vinyl window), and maybe one of the top end offerings from Simonton. You might also want to see if there is a Zen dealer in your area.

I would collect these bids and see how they compare in price to the NT Presidential. When you do get the bids, send them over to me and I can make a recommendation based on what you get!

NT vs. Milgard Style Line

Good morning. I am wanting to replace 4 bedroom windows that back up to a very noisy street. Milguard came out and has now given me a quote for $3500 which would give me 4 Style Line vinyl windows with 1/4 and 3/16 glass. Two windows are casement with a fixed picture window in between. The 4th window is a small window in my master bath and is a single hung.

My home is 8 yrs old and a small garden home so that might answer the question about why Tuscany might not fit with Style Line being a much thinner an lower profile window. Any opinion?

The STC/OITC ratings on these windows are 35 and 29. Will that decrease the traffic noise in your opinion? Noise is my biggest issue.

One last concern is the customer service issues I am reading about with Milguard. Seems like there are so many negative comments. Any comments you have about this is appreciated.

We are in Houston. Thank you!!

Sharon - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Sharon, Milgard is a pretty good manufacturer and rather large, so it isn't surprising that they are going to have negative reviews out there. I tend to think they make a good vinyl window, so I usually am on the pro-Milgard side of things.

The Styleline is their lower end vinyl window and not the window I would recommend going with, especially if you are trying for sound control.

I think you need a few more bids to see what's out there. Unless you want to spend a lot of money, getting a good double pane window should go quite a ways to reducing down the street noise. However, only a true noise control window is going to drown out all that noise and they are expensive. So there's the rub.

Don Young is out of Texas and they make a very good aluminum window and a vinyl window that I would say is comparable to the Milgard Tuscany. NT Windows should also have dealers in your area. Check to see if PGT windows has local dealers, they make a very solid impact window that is well made and could double as a soundproof option. Finally, the Simonton Impressions 9800 is a window I like and someone ought to sell it in San Antonio.

I think you would want the additional bids also just to see how the different prices stack up to one another. At first glance, the $3500 doesn't seem like that great of a deal, but it's hard to say without seeing more bids.

NT Windows Or Don Young?

Hello! I’m looking at replacing approximately 35 windows in my home near Houston. I’ve had several bids from dealers offering Simonton (Asure & reflections 5500), NT Window, Don Young and Atrium. Do you have any thoughts on any of these products for a very hot climate?

I am a little hesitant on the Simonton Asure simply because it seems to be more of an entry level window, but is the reflections 5500 worth the additional money (Assuming both offer the solar pro glass).

Many thanks in advance for your help and opinion!

Sonya - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Hi Sonya, congratulations on the start off the project and for getting several bids to see what's out there and what price range you are looking at. I would agree with your assessment of the Asure as an entry level window and would say that the premium or upgraded cost of the 5500 is probably worth it.

Of the bids you have, I would rank them in this order (not knowing the cost or any of the window particulars of course).

1. Don Young
2. NT
3. Simonton Reflections 5500
4. Simonton Asure
5. Atrium

NT Presidential Windows Review

I'm looking at vinyl single hung windows, the PGT Energy Vue Series and the NT Presidential Series. The PGT windows are more expensive. Are they worth it? Which has the better warranty?

Lloyd - Homeowner - from 2015

[Site Editor's Response]

Lloyd, I don't have a ton of experience with the NT windows, although I looked at the performance data on the NT Presidential single hung and I was impressed. It looks like with the standard low-e glass and argon fills, you can expect a U-factor of .27, .25 SHGC and .41 VT. These are solid numbers and will serve you just fine.

I do like the look and performance of the PGT Energy Vue Series, very clean lines and some great interior color options. However, it sounds like price is a big factor so I might go with the NT window option. However, the quality of the installation has to be a big factor here. How would you compare the companies or dealers who will be doing the installation? If one is the clear winner, I would lean towards them.

In terms of warranty, it appears they are pretty close, both limited lifetime warranties that can be transferred to a new owner. I tend not to put much stock in warranties, although I always assume that the better the warranty, the stronger the company feels about their products. I would ask the local installer/company what sort of labor warranty they provide on the installation. Also ask them about warranty issues in the past and how well the company responded to the claim. Let me know how it goes!

NT vs PGT Windows Take 2

Thanks for the feedback Dane. I cannot find the numbers for the PGT Energy Vue, Simonton Prism Bronze or Marvin Integrity windows. Do you know them or can point me in the direction of where to find them. As it stands now I have the following estimates:

1. NT Presidential Series, white or tan vinyl insulated single windows with LoE/argon glass, no grids, single hung sashes $7,839. Sandstone color add $609, foam filled frames add $1,131.00 and triple glazing add $1,044.00. Are the foam filled frames and triple glazing worth the money?

2. PGT Energy Vue DH5460 vinyl double hung, AAMAA440 certified, white, insulating glass low E energy shield, no argon gas, no grids $11,170.83.

3. Simonton Prism Bronze tan vinyl double hung, 366 glass energy star rated $8,190.00

4. Marvin Integrity Ultrex double hung $11,395.22.

I would appreciate any comments and recommendations you have on the quality of the windows and estimates.

Lloyd - Homeowner - from 2015

[Site Editor's Response]

Lloyd, as far as the NT, the foam fills will add a bit of strength to the window frame and will make the window more energy efficient. The triple glazing will also make the window more energy efficient, drop the U-factor and air infiltration numbers. I would include them, adding $2000 is a tough pill to swallow, but it is still is going to be well under the PGT window cost bid. I would ask about what adding these two features is going to do to the performance numbers, particularly the AI numbers.

As long as the company offering the NT windows is going to offer good quality installation, I think you should be happy with the window and will get some nice long term quality out of it.

NT Window Review

I'll be getting replacement windows soon and I'm looking at double hungs from Simonton and either double or single hungs from NT. All of them have Low-E coatings, Argon filled extra thick glass, etc. The NTs are cheaper but the tilt in feature, which is what makes them different, isn't going to be helpful to me because my plantation shutters will block the sash. NT offers a lifetime glass breakage warranty upgrade for only $10 per window, which sounds great, and Simonton doesn't cover broken glass at all. Simonton is more visible, I've seen them advertised and they get a lot of awards, but the ratings on NT are nearly the same and the price is a good bit lower.

Ned - Contractor - from 2010

[Contractor Response]

I think that NT is just as good as Simonton, they just don't focus on marketing as much. They all have double strength glass, low-E coating, and a reinforced sash. And if you like the single hung, NT is great, I don't think Simonton even makes a single hung replacement window.

Jeff - Contractor in Texas - from 2010

NT Windows Customer Service

I've had a few bad experiences with NT in the past, but lately their customer service has been a lot better. The windows are good, always were, and the internal reinforced sash and extra strength glass are a good deal. I don't like their Executive line, I think the frames are weak. They make a Presidential and Energy Master lines that are pretty much the same, just different distributors. Compare it to the Home Craftsman, similar in price but the HC uses a cheap pocket sill and flimsy frame, plus terrible efficiency. The Simonton Prism Platinum is supposed to be better, but you have to upgrade to get the reinforced sash that comes standard in the NT.

Brandley - Installer - from 2010

NT Vinyl Window Quality

If you're looking for replacement windows, definitely find an NT dealer in your area. For a mid-priced vinyl replacement window, they are an excellent choice. They come standard with low-E 366 coating, double strength glass package, and an aluminum reinforced meeting rail. They are also 100% American made, which is always a plus.
